Finally, eh? ;D
Sorry I took so long to get around to finishing my review - either I didn't remember, was busy, or wasn't going to write as good a review as I could have. (And together, these reasons form procrastination! ;D) I'll comment on your edits, on the new part, and then finish with the story. :D
Interesting new FX in the beginning of the song, though I liked it more before, without it - I feel it adds unnecessary energy to what I think is more of a sad and wandering song.
I'm hearing a few clashing notes right before the old ending, but it might just be me. :\
Nice transition into the new section! :) It has an interesting contrast to the first part of the song, and this could have been built on to make something awesome! :D You go in a different direction with the panflute and sitar - not necessarily a worse one, it's just not quite the direction I, personally, would have preferred. :P
I don't know about the section of the song from 2:48 to the end of the song - not every song needs a climax and it sounds especially unnecessary (and a bit rushed) with this one. It was well done, though compared to the rest of the song, I don't think it fits at all.
Storytime. >:) Aah, it's been so long since I've done one of these. :D
Abandoned by his caravan he has been wandering for days, now. Or has it been weeks? Each day feels like ten and with each step the sand seems to go out of its way to grab his feet - which have been aching for so long they feel numb now - and pull them farther in. He cannot smile, or even speak - his lips have become too chapped to move for anything but food.
Seeing the cruel slope of the sand ahead of him, he staggers and falls to the ground, as not only does it seem impossible from his angle, but the incredible dune stretches an incredible distance from his left to his right, a distance which he is not willing to walk, either. Yet the tracks of his caravan go around it. So he must as well...
And so his journey continues, through neverending days and nights of repeating frustration and misery. He can only hope to reach its end, as distant and impossible as it seems. It is his only hope.
Overall it's a pretty good song, I enjoyed it - it's just that, unfortunately, more of its cons presented themselves to me than its pros. D: Oh well, at least I enjoyed writing the story! ;D I'll review 8/10 - but I'll rate 5/5. I think this song deserves it. :D One last thing - recently I remade my old classical song Falling Farther into a pwnsome trance song - care to listen to it? A review would be nice, too, considering that I broke new ground with a new style and would appreciate the feedback. ;) Thanks, and keep up the great work - I'll be downloading this once I get home! :)
Hey Karco! Firstly sorry about the super delayed response, secondly *puts on reading glasses*
I don't quite know what you mean by new FX. I do remember I added more instrumental layering, that might be what you're referring too. I realize that adding more to it bleeds it's power in the regards of expressing sadness, aimless wondering, however it was necessary to make transitions smoother.
The ending wasn't changed as far as I can remember, but then again i'm responding to this review nearly a month after, and I don't remember a lot of things :D!
Quite right with the transition in the middle. Could go in many many ways, took one, unfortunately it was one that didn't click with you, a valid and respectable opinion, so cheers for that.
The ending you're talking about, is surprisingly the only part of the song I actually liked. I mean really liked. The tempo remains constant, what changes is the note durations. It may feel rushed because suddenly all the notes are nearly halved in duration, and things are happening much faster. With this sudden contrast from the songs original half.
Now with teh story :D!!!
The story was brilliant, well expressed and formed. I'm sorry I didn't remember to listen to your track, I will do that immediately! I will write you the reviews you deserve my good sir, you have given me so many.
Thank you for the honest review, and story. I'm glad you liked it!

Hello DarkMcShadowX (aka, Music-Creator :D)
I am glad you are diving into making your own DnB, i'll definitely drop by and take a listen to some of your work!
Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it! I apologize for the late response!
It has a scary tone thats, random but at the same time calming.
random yet calming you say? I never really thought if like that, though I suppose it is entirely possible. I assure you nothing in it's production stages were random however ;D
Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it! I apologize for the delayed response!
Very nice song, ive listen to a couple of your song and they are all great, very entertaining and great sound quality
Thank you kindly! I hope the songs you listened to were all able to entertain you!
Thank you again for the review, i'm glad you liked it! I apologize for the delayed response!
Hmm, I'm not sure if it was just the sound quality or the balancing but there was just an umph missing from it, I'm not exactly sure were though, but its in the sound, not the music.
Otherwise a brilliant capture of your chosen theme, especially the instruments and keys chosen, very nice 4/5.
hmm... I think I understand what you mean. I like to throw a blanket compression on the songs and that will usually cancel out deep thumps, or high pitches. It's a compromise, I should really learn proper compression/equalization!
Ah well, thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it! I apologize for the delayed response!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
