NOTE: Just a quick heads up! You may have to turn up the volume a bit on this one. It is a bit on the quiet side (Unless my speakers are simply terrible and/or broken).

Before someone inevitably asks, the answer is no; this is not Naruto. It isn't related to the song "Sadness and Sorrow" on Naruto, nor did I even watch the anime at the time I wrote this. That is a great song, but this is completely unrelated aside from the coincidental sharing of titles. :P

Now that we've got that out of the way, on to the actual commentary. I wrote this piece long ago, and I've come a long way musically since then. However, I have received several requests to remake this song. I've added a VERY simple intro, a nicer piano soundfont, some strings, and I've tweaked the volume in a few spots. I think it sounds a lot better, but you can compare if you'd like.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments! I would love to know your opinion, how I might improve this, or even what you imagine as you listen to this music. I read and respond to every review, so don't shy away! XD

Thanks in advance, and enjoy. :)

PS. I really need a decent strings sample for free. I have been using the string soundfont that comes with the FL Studio demo, but I can't stand it anymore. Know of any good samples for free?

Great

This song was very, very nice! You captured the essence of sadness very well in this piece. This is something you might expect to hear in a movie where someone dies and it flashes back to important moments in that person's life, if you understood that at all. Fav'd.

And I did find the strings to be decent. Unfortunately I don't got any idea of any free one's. Just try fiddling around with the EQ and the string you like most until you get a sound you like.

I suggest adding just a bit more reverb to the piano.

I can't even tell you how many times I've been told that same exact thing! Not that is is bad to hear, but this is apparently a very cinematic song, lol. Actually, I'm glad to hear it, as I hope to one day score for film. :)

My EQ skill's are lacking, I must admit. I know how to tweak reverb, but that's about it. I find it funny that the piano could use more reverb, as it had too much the first time I posted it. xD

Thanks for the review!

Perfected Desolation.

A beautiful melody that demonstrates the very moment of heartbreak and anguish. Symbolization of that which whomever will never come again. Forever lost in a sea of sorrow twisting within its torment.

This song is very captivating.
Many sad memories this melody brought up. For that I am surprised, it's hard to make a song that could actually grasp the listener in ways you thought you could not. This is why you deserve a 10/10.

Keep up the good work.

It seems as if sad songs have much more power than happy ones. I can think of many deeply emotional songs which bring to mind sad memories and have resonated with me on a deep level. I can not think of many happy ones, however. Perhaps this shows that humans remember painful experiences more prominently than joyful ones?

You have left a beautiful review. For that I give you my gratitude and respect.

Imagine.

No external sound. Just the sound of the music playing.

A man walking across the bridge to the city on a stormy night. Many cars pass by, the usual traffic to the city that never sleeps. He tosses the cigarette he was smoking to the ground and steps on it. He turns his body toward the traffic of the bridge and stares for a moment or two... or an eternity.

He steps back, leans over the bridge, and lets himself go. No fear. No pain. No emotion. He falls 10 stories. 20 stories. 30 stories. 100 stories... into the stormy waters below. There is no turning back from the inevitable impact. Except that impact never came.

He opens his eyes and he was right where he remembered. Back in his room, sitting against the wall on his bed in sweat pants and a tank top, cigarette in hand. Right where he ended up the previous four times he's tried this. He clenched down on his cigarette and just grunted.

He found himself back at the bridge. History repeats itself.


BlazingDragon responds:

Great description! It is quite a bit darker than anything others have suggested, but it is very well written. I love the line, "History repeats itself" albeit it being cliche.

Thanks for taking the time to review and be imaginative. You have a descriptive mind!

Vapid.

As said before, this song loops perfectly. It's a really good song to meditate or reflect with. It really numbed my mind during a bit of rage. Thanks for this lovely piece of work. Definitely on my favorites list.


BlazingDragon responds:

No, thank you for the lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed it and that it helped calm you down. :)

Sad but Beautiful

A kid looks at his dead parents grave's. He looks up at the stars. Silently he prays. He looks back down at the graves. He starts to cry. he falls to the ground. "Why God, why?!? Why did this have to happen?!? My heart has been broken, all my family has been killed, my best friend was murdered, and my loyal pet shot! What else do you want to take from me?"

That is what I thought during listening to the amazing piece of music.

Great description; it matches the emotions of the song very well! I must admit that I laughed upon reading "and my loyal pet shot!" XD (Though I don't know why I found it funny)

Thank you for the review. :)
