This is the best song I've made in a long time.. maybe ever. I hope you feel the same way!



Ahh- 'tis a lovable little tune. The synth melodies aren't very noticable- like, you can't really hear the notes, just the sound of them. And that's pretty darn well done. The drums and fx and such are good too, though instead of using just one tom, maybe you should use a lower one for the second hit in each bar-blah 'bout that- cool metallic thing- unnoticable rhytm again. The fx goes on all the time, adding to the greatness.

It doesn't really move anywhere, which isn't neccesarily a bad thing- as there's like, a lot happening where it is through the song. Now I'm just brambling, so I should end this review- Great work!


Gillenium responds:

Thanks again, SBB! I think why the synths are not particularly noticable is because they all fit together so well. It's like a soundtrack in a movie. The best soundtracks are the ones you don't notice. They just sound right. There's a ton of different melodies and sounds battling it out in this song, but you'd never know it, cause everything sounds just right. That's why I'm so proud of this one. I touched on the idea of battling melodies in Strange Petals, but it's fully realized here, I think. You can hear new things every time you listen to it! I'm glad you enjoyed it, because I honestly never know if the stuff I really respond to will respond to anyone else.

very mysterious

yer man this is the sort of music i need
For my rpg maker xp project.
Do you mind if i use this i will make sure to credit you in my..... credits.

Gillenium responds:

Of course, go ahead. I'd like to see how this song would work in an rpg. Thanks for the review!

Oh your the screamer guy!

Jk, seriously this song is awesome and dont worry no one care that a dumbass used your song for some blam worthy submission

People find this review helpful!
Gillenium responds:

Haha, I'm the screamer guy! Friggin zombie woman..

I'm surprised A Duck Life didn't get blammed... I guess it slipped by when people weren't watching. Thanks for the review!

I have a question.

are you trying to kill me with ambient goodness??
this is better than my moms homemade pies.

haha, well i was going to leave a more in depth review on this song like the others but it has left me speachless.

You are the best artist on newgrounds.
no doubt.

Gillenium responds:

Haha, I'm glad you survived the song to write this review! There's not much to say in response to this review (other than THANKS!) so I'll just give you a factoid about the song. For all of my songs, I give them a stupid title so I'll be able to recognize the song file. This one was codenamed "Delay" because in the beginning, every sound is run through a different delay filter. I came up with "November Butterfly" when I saw a butterfly flying over the highway near my college in late October. This song is about that butterfly fighting it out through November. The song is still titled "Delay" on my computer.. I'm so disorganized..

Yo Gill!

Nice to see you're still making (awesome) songs!
Damnit I love this! Haha. Very minimalistic and very clear, it's great.
The ONLY thing that could be better (after listening to this for a long time) is the weird clapping sound in the background.
I dunno, it sounds a bit dry, maybe a little extra reeverb would have done the trick?
(But I'm just being picky here XD)
Very sound song man, great ambient ;)

NDC (10/10, 5/5 and a download)

Gillenium responds:

Hey, Nideco! It's been a while. Thanks for the review! I must admit that I do have a fascination with the "clap." I know it's an old, overused sound, but I just can't help it sometimes :D What turned me back on to the sound was the use of the clap at a Chemical Brothers concert I went to in Brooklyn a while back. The clap is still cool, man!
