Okay, so basically I'm just puttin' this one out there to put SOMETHING out there. I haven't uploaded anything in a while so I sat down for half an hour and put this together. Please, I ask that you listen to the entire piece before voting and/or commenting, thanks. ^_^ Enjoy!

This dramatic melody would fit just fine in an RPG of mine, if you don't mind me using it. The sounds flow together well, especially for a simple song. You should try for remixing some Phantasy Star 4 music, you have real talent.

DylanGlow responds:

Hey Sabura! Thanks for the review! Sorry it took so long to comment on it! ^_- You're welcome to use any of my songs in anything you would like to slap 'em in! Just let me know when the final product is out so I can enjoy somebody else's work too! Thanks again for the great score!

~Dylan ^_^


This is soal clenching, heart stoping, and breath taking. It makes me want to cry.
I hope you create more like this. This is one of the few things that make me sob.
Great Work!

DylanGlow responds:

XD I'm sorry that hit you so hard Kev. XD Thank you for the review! I guess that's the sound I was goin' for! Thanks, bud!

It sounds just like a sad part song in a RPG game or something. Its very simple, which makes it interesting to listen to! I really like it! I hope to see more like this in the future!

DylanGlow responds:

Thanks Electrical! You probably will hear more like this in the future, the simple ones seem to be my specialty. XD Thanks again!!!

Simply touching!

*Read the quote I wrote above first, most people forget to do so.*

I like how simple this song is, yet it truly express the real emotion. A flute and piano blend well together, especially at the counter-melodies. The last part of the song sounds a little more dramatic due to the percussions you add. A piece pleasing to the ear.

DylanGlow responds:

Thank you Xyirx! A piece that is "Simply touching!" and "pleasing to the ear" are always pieces I take pride in. Thank you very much for taking the time to review and the score!

All of the songs with the pianos and harps and violins and BLAH sound all the same. I am sure they are hard to make.. but the judges are probably going to look for variation in this MAc 08 July contest. I am giving you a ten because it sounds like a fantastic song, but not as a very original song. It sounded more mediveal than sad by the way.

DylanGlow responds:

Why thank you FatKid! I didn't really write the song for the MAC 08 contest, I just wrote it and someone suggested I try for it, so I did. I can't agree that all songs sound the same with "pianos and harps and violins and BLAH". I could say the same for techno, dance, house, jazz. That's what is called a genre my friend. ^_^ If you don't care for the genre, that's fine. I'm sorry to say, that's what they are though. Thank you for the ten and constructive criticism, it's always appreciated!!!

~Dylan ^_^

... it's "medieval" by the way.
