This track was for the A.I.M contest and its an awesome yet simple piece of art.

I wanted to have the 8-bit theme feel to it but with a modern rock twist. Hopefully i pulled it off :)

This could have been in Megaman! This is awesome, its better than that. It's sick when the guitar comes in, the only section I didn't mix with (on a first listen) was the bass it threw me out of the groove, I still think its fantastic though, that's just a matter of taste I think. Very well done, and as I finish the track I see now that the art reminds me of megaman. Awesome job dude, rock on. I actually kind of think of as the clunky nature of the CRT monitor, which makes it awesome. Reminds me of so much good stuff. Hahaha, I'm now on my second listen now, and I actually really enjoy the bass and wavy section its real fun and it really livens up the track bringing it to life!

Go get it!

I love it, but it feels a little repetitive. If it had been just a little shorter it would definitely have been a 5.

Dammit =_= another outstanding piece. Now I gotta take this into consideration for my top 3 of the AIM as well :/.
One of the best 8-bit tracks I've ever heard. Loved the melody and percussion :D.
The slide notes made my day and the bit guitar is awesome.
An absolutely outstanding piece and fits the art really well :D.

Instant 5 and favourite.

It's an interesting effort that blends various influences together without making them sound too jumbled or cluttered.

The mastering is actually pretty spot-on, with perhaps the kick drum kinda overpowering the mix. Everything else sounds pretty smooth, reminiscent of '80s synthpop and new wave. I wished it had a bit more of variety, to be honest, with the synths being a little more modulated and expressive. Adding some vibrato and a slight delay effect would have probably made them more present and intense. Nonetheless, I praise the effort put in the solos and the melodies in particular.
