I really liked this. At times I thought it was a bit repetitive at first, but after a second listen you pick up on the little nuances that build throughout the song. It's simple, and conveys a tone that can be peaceful or grandeur depending on the situation or setting. The rhythm is nice and with those changes throughout, although minor, keeps you in the song without just droning off. Well done!

Thank you very much! I really appreciate your communicating your message well so I understand your perspective and I agree with you.

There was a thread in the Audio Forum about a guy defending his music. Saying it was harsh and he didn't know why it was being deleted. He was told by multiple people that it was way too loud and damaging to ears and equipment, thus making it unpleasant to listen to. We all tried to convince him, he wasn't listening though, claiming it was "harsh" and that it was the listener's fault. That it was uploaded in the Experimental genre and that he should get a pass.

I went on the search for an Experimental track that was harsh and came across this gem and shared it in that thread. I regret not leaving a review when I had the chance. The lyrics are fantastic. I love the beat and the melody going through. This is an appropriate harsh sounding song that doesn't damage the ears. On the contrary, it melts them wonderfully!

That was absolutely amazing! I love the genre changing idea! It reminds me of the Continue The Song Collaborations on Newgrounds. It all flowed so well with each change. The thing I really liked though, was although it was changing genres each time, it felt like each change took a small piece from its previous genre as it kept going, bringing us this colossal finish that was euphoric for my eardrums. I am excited to hear more from you going forward.

I'm not sure what soundfonts you're using, but I'm getting a strange vibe from Yoshi's Cookie on the SNES. It sounds incredible though!

Mostly the Roland SC-88, but there is a little Mario World, Yoshi's Island, and Pilotwings in there! And thank you!

Being from South Carolina I must admit, I liked the song. I thought it was gonna get heavy there at the beginning, it was pretty subdued and basic. Much like my home state is.

50Steaks responds:

Nah, I haven’t really made anything “heavy” before, unless you count New Jersey which I really don’t. I definitely went for the laid back feel, not necessarily basic but more subdued like you said. Now that people from the states I make are listening, I hope I’ve done it justice within the 2 minute length of the song.

Oooh. I love the rhythm to this. That beat is just fantastic. The sense of dread at the beginning that something is about to go down and what is meant to be a scuffle slowly escalates more and more until things are out of control. A slow burn, creating a large fire. Then it goes too far, and things scatter as those left around have to put the pieces back together. Yet there is still an unease to it all.

I like it. My only criticism is that the beginning I felt dragged. It takes 30 seconds before we hit the juicy part. That's really it though.

CIEIRMusic responds:

In this case I was doing a song for a game, but at the time the creator of said game didn't tell me which part it was for. So I made it that way for however long whatever section the creator had in mind. It's made in a way that it can be edited down. As most game songs are.

Listening to this I found it to be the set-up to a great mystery. When I read the description with the picture I was intrigued even further. It feels like the start to the Neverending Story in a way. Different though. The harmonies were simplistic, though I get that was the idea. To let the mind wander. Excellent work!

I absolutely loved this. I loved how it kept climbing more and more as it progressed. The vocals I liked, but they seemed to overpower the song a bit. Not by much, but a bit. This is something I feel you're gonna look back on and remix. Which I am eager to hear.

FLAVOUR-STAR responds:

Thank you very much. :) I will probably adjust it. :D

Oh, The Simpletons love YOU, TGO. As long as it's consensual, we're in ;)
