Very well done, once again

You are really talented in coming up with new, original, and overall fantastic melodies. This one has a very calming one with a sort of subtle yet powerful influence upon the listener. It is really amazing how you keep on coming up with more and more melodies while never faltering in your unerring history of excellence. That being said, I gave it a 10, a 5, downloaded it, and almost favorited it, but decided not to considering how much great stuff you will probably come out with later. Good job, and as always, thanks for the pm.

Yes I've had a hell long time of work on this song :P Edited it like 10 to 15 times 0.o But the end-result is good so I'm happy and I'm happy too that you like it.

Not forgotten

This is a very moving and lovelly track it just captures your imagination, and feels your soul with energy.

Sorrry for that rather odd statement but this track, really grabs me. Its just got such a beautiful tune. Right from the onset i was captivated ,by the sound of the tune. I found the drums amazing ,it was a comb of piano and more uptemp sounds. The tune is just magical the piano is just incredible ,its moving and really highlights the essense of this masterpice. The whole track is just perfect i cant think how you can improve it.

No flaws perfect.

Overeall i dont give 10 out of 10 very often but this is just superb. Thank you for the pleasure.

A nice piece here, with a good variation of tempo and ambient sounds. This could well be something associated with either the Final Fantasy Genre or indeed something as a menu backing tune on quite a wide range of games.

In reflection of this last point, I'd hope that it would loop better for that, but we can't have it all, can we?

I like how this song slowly builds up. It starts with only the drums and then other instruments, melodies and even some "background noises" are added, slowly but steadily.
This makes the song very interesting to listen to.

I also liked that movearound 1:20, where only the piano plays the main melody.
But after that, not that much else happens, leaving me a bit unsatisfied.
Maybe a little break would be better here. A few tacts where only the piano plays and then bring back the other instruments.

Desperately poignant and affecting.

This kinda reminds me of the Snes DKC music. Slow but contious changes in everything. Repeating a phrase 4 or even 8x may happen but only with changes elsewhere. Each new element is judiciously timed for its entry.

The opening atmospheric noise is excellent, as is the tremendous resonanating echo of the drums.

I love the way the melody originally comes in at around :40, in the background.

Pulling back everything else at 1:23 is a bold move, but you pull it off perfectly.

When the 'main' piano first pops back in it's a great payoff.

Hitting the higher notes at 2:57 is also a lovely pattern.

I feel like the whole last 40s is kinda weak - a bit of a cop-out. The 3:55-3:58 bit kinda felt like it was gonna go for one last spin, so to hear it finally wind down was disappointing.

What makes it even worse is the chord played at the end. C'mon! The song's unsettling, slightly poignant and why give us a payoff? Leave us hanging! Stop on that one last note if you've got to have an ending.

If you'd had it loop though, that would've been a boon in my opinion. I like being able to listen to songs as great as this over and over with no pause or stop in between. ;-)
