Winter Ov Thanatoz The Midnight still own the synthwave genre, this album is a must in everyone's library.

Zodiac-Attack I love music that makes me feel like I should be driving through a glowing, yet somewhat empty feeling city in the dead of night, and the instrumentals from Nocturnal give that feeling perfectly. Favorite track: Shadows (instrumental).

Paul De Monte This album is amazing.. The singing sax is stirring. Forget the vocal versions, they muddy up amazing music.

Also, don't forget to buy the other three instrumental tracks on the non instrumental album. For whatever reason, they've been excluded. Same goes for the Endless Summer album. There are a number of tracks that are in fact instrumental, but left off the instrumental album.. Favorite track: Crystalline (instrumental).

David Rotenburger These tracks sound absolutely amazing as instrumentals! Once again, the Midnight proves that synthwave is the greatest genre of music of all time! Favorite track: Shadows (instrumental).

The Midnight consists of Tyler Lyle (a songwriter from the Deep South) and Tim McEwan (a producer from Denmark).
