There are two versions of "Pinnacle" available here: an "Intro Mix," featuring the gorgeous main theme at the beginning of the track, as well as the Club Mix, which has already been previewed by Tom Fall on his Silk Royal Showcase 03 mix. The first half of the track centers on a resonant and meaty bassline progression, as moody pads imbue the track with a haunting soundscape. In the first of two extended breaks, we are met by the celestial synth line -- the main theme and truly most memorable riff of the song -- as well as a gorgeous piano instrumental. Later on, in the main break, these themes are joined by the crescendoing bassline, which creates a powerful climax (or should we say "pinnacle"?) to the track.
The B-side is "Turion," which once again features an inspired and infectious lead theme. Although various layers and background melodies spice up the soundscape, the main chord progression is the real "star" of this show, which both reverberates on the dancefloor and evokes a euphoric response in the listener.
