I've been working on this one for quite some time now, but as you can see, it's finally finished! I even went to the lengths of trying something very different.....singing. I'm pretty damn self-conscious of my voice...so I'd appreciate it if anyone who feels they need to post insulting and/or unhelpful reviews to kindly go fuck themselves. All comments and/or constructive criticism are welcome, and I would be more than happy to respond to as many reviews as possible, if not all of them.

FYI, the inspiration from this track came about one night after I got off the phone with my girlfriend. She was really upset and there was nothing I could do or say to help, so I was left feeling her pain and sadness. I started working on the strings section before anything else, since those chords really described how I was feeling at the time.

Check it out and see what you think.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy!



well here goes my first comment on ng, and i would like to say that you are an inspiration because i one day would like to have the guts to have my own vocals in my songs! awesome stuff! keep it up!

RAVEN responds:

Hey mRBJam, thanks a lot for the review! It means a lot to hear that I've inspired you to muster up the courage to do vocals for your music. I haven't written/recorded vocals for any other tracks besides this, but maybe someday I will. Thanks again! =)

simply awesome

i must say sir, you have done a fine job. i didn't hear anything wrong with the vocals at all honestly.. the way you described it i kind of cringed waiting for them.... but was pleasantly surprised. good lyrics too. :D not only that, but your inspiration has in turn inspired me. i know how it feels to be inadequate in consoling a significant other... it's not fun. all you can do is be there and hope to god it's enough. "take my hand" is a perfect way to bring the desire to comfort another into focus. sometimes words just aren't enough. our presence is the only way to make a bad thing better. great song. added you to favs. :) sry for the long-winded review.

RAVEN responds:

No problem dude. Sorry for the late response. Thanks a lot for the review! =)

w00t VOCALS!!

I love the vocals man. Good voice. Keep it up!

RAVEN responds:

Hey XeroQ thanks a lot for the review! I'm really surprised by how much people actually enjoyed the vocals for this one, let alone my voice. I've already considered singing again in my next production, but I have no idea what I'll come up with next. Thanks again dude. Take care! =)

i fuckin love it

i totally did not expect the singing man
props to ya


RAVEN responds:

Hey Zodiax, thanks a lot man. Glad you enjoyed this track, I really worked my ass off on this one. =)

Thumbs up,

The pad in the breakdown would be better with an instant attack. As for your vocals, they're mostly pretty good, except I would enunciate a little more. It would sound crisp, like your synth-perc in the breakdown to really pronounce the 'k' in your words. As for melodies, I really, really like them. Very musically sound and well-mixed.

RAVEN responds:

Hey DeepEmbrace, thanks a lot for the review! I have to agree with your review completely. I was going to have an instant attack on the strings when they first appear, and then gradually bring the attack level higher towards when the vocals are about to end and the kick-roll comes in. I also think I should've been much clearer with the vocals, like in the word "flight" you can't hear the t, and in the end of the vocal verse you can't hear the d in "hand". Once again, thanks a lot for reviewing this, I strongly appreciate it. I will keep all of your wonderful suggestions in mind when working on my next production. Later! =)
