Oh man!

I heard this years ago and loved every second of it so I downloaded it and listened to it constantly
I remember one time in particular I was camping up in the mountains with friends and I found a small creek so I decided to dip my feet in then I got the idea of listening to this song while doing it
Pure. Tranquility.

I'm glad I could find you again to tell you all this and to hear anything new you've come up with
I don't know how you do it but honestly, don't stop making such surreal tunes

Gillenium responds:

Great review. Glad you liked it so much :D


Makes me think that the ants have gotten out of their containment of gel and proceeded to see whats outside...in the beyond....

Another great piece of art. It put temper tantrum son to sleep...Thank you, haha :D

Gillenium responds:

Happy to have helped :)

sounds like .

it would fit a donkey kong stage.

Gillenium responds:

The original Donkey Kong?? I think you mean Donkey Kong Country :)

Intense Tranquility And Paradise

What can I say? You've topped my delight yet again? Nah, you've heard that too many times. You're awesome? Nah, you're probably tired of that..... I have no description of this amazing peice. However you interpret this, youu will always find one theme in common: Tranquility. The beat gives a city-like feel, but the ambience of plane-like sonds make a feeling of war and death, but at the same time nature sounds come in, giving a sense of paradise. What did you use for the creation of this creation? And also, what do you see in this song? Just out of curiosity. Any way I gotta run. It's like 11 PM

Goth_Storm's score: 10.0
Goth_Storm's comments: You, sir, is a genious. Hopefully 300 yrs. from now people'll appretiate this as much as they would appreciate old-school composers. Peace and keep on kickin' ass.

Gillenium responds:

Thank you very much! As for the question about the imagery of the song, I usually try to connect what's in my head to the actual title. So basically what I imagined was the afterlife. I don't really believe in such a thing, but I wish I did. Maybe that's where some of the bittersweet tones of the song come from..

Gillenium responds:
