Greetings everyone,

This one is a relaxing piano solo piece that starts off as a slow lullaby but then starts to quicken in the middle of the song.

I've been debating with someone about having the theme at the ending to be changed to a more climatic ending so please place a constructive review on this one if you can. Let me know what you think.

Thanks again,

Oozles

Indeed very relaxing! Don't know why this got such a low score, but that's newgrounds for you.

The thing I reacted most strongly to was that the harmonies were somewhat all over the place - it starts with rather "pop-y", modern harmonies, but in the B-section introduced first around 1:40, I find things are more reminiscent of romanticism. An interesting genre clash to some regard, but initially I found it distracting and a bit cluttered.

It does pick up the pace very nicely, and the variation of previously heard material is nice. The ritardandos stops, and the fact that they're all very akin to each other, takes away a lot of energy from the piece whenever they show up - in part due to wasting away all momentum, and later on because they're so very familiar and predictable. My first suggestion would be to try doing one of these cadences but keeping some form of motion in some voice, rather than coming to a complete stop.

It's perhaps a slight bit on the lengthy side with regards to the material, but it kinda gets away with it - though first half got a bit tedious. For what it's worth, I think the ending worked beautifully!
