This here is my entry for the Dreams of Splendor contest being run by Bosa over on the Audio Forum.

A little different than my usual, also the most complicated (and hard to play) piano part I've done yet.

Oh wow, a review from me. Didn't expect that, eh? Anyway, lets go onward to the review, shall we?

The piano intro itself is the thing that caught my attention. Excellent composition performed on the piano as a whole, with a kind of 'coming back' emotion within it, but since I'm usually a depressed prick I could also see this as a 'goodbye' song. The percussion addition is good but I just don't like how the very last 'hat' of each percussion pattern seems to end abruptly. This is how it flows:

Ksssshhhh--||| ......

It's like someone shuts its mouth when its playing halfway through. It starts at 0:28.5 and it keeps appearing a few times over. Seriously, dude, that percussion part is bad. Eh...get it? :c

Now to the next part...a suggestion. From 1:16 onwards, you could add a bit of violin and let it fade away at 1:53. Just a suggestion, though.

1:54 onwards kinda resembles a person running closer towards his goal - home. Nice use of drums. That retro sound addition also sounds nice. The rest of the song is pretty flawless - the person having completed his journey. You left 10 seconds of empty sound open from 3:43, so reduce that a bit.

Overall, 4.5 stars out of 5, thus voting 5/5. This is something I can listen to whilst doing other stuff.

PS: Nice catch of getting your ID as 521 521.

That silencing of the hi hat was intentional actually, it's what I heard in my head, so it's what I put in the song. Guess it's a love or hate kind of thing.

I was actually debating putting some strings or something in the section you mentioned... and I still might... maybe... We shall see.

As for the 10 seconds, that's actually not silence, the piano drops off around 3:46, and the rest is the tail end of the reverb, which is very, very quiet... so it just sounds like silence. ;3
I have a thing against cutting sound off prematurely, no matter how quiet it is.

As for the ID... totally unintentional... I promise.

Thanks for the review!

I love songs like these.
They're easier to appreciate. Usually it's like; "Heheh, good song".
But this is like; "Jesus, I need to download this."

I really like this! The melody is really melancholic, but sort of happy too. I think it's nice. You've got skill with melodies and chords! Keep it up.

Now this is what I'm talkin' about; beautiful. I was almost going to go with a 3 until it got that sick climax halfway through, and the mellow ending--it's like you can hear the protagonist making it home--was enough to leave a grown man with a tear rolling down his cheek.

Thanks, glad you like it.
