It's calm, soothing and relaxing, but also pulls you in and doesn't let go.
I could just close my eyes and fly away in my thoughts, forgetting about all of those worries and sad things, and may i add, not many songs can lead me to such things.

I like how the whole thing is really simple, the drums add a second bottom, and every little sound seems to have a good purpose, while listening through the whole song a couple times, even once i didn't think of changing something, everything was just perfect.

A well deserved 10 my good man, this is really a great piece of work =)

Well I'd just like to say thank you so much for your kind comment! I made this song quite a while ago, and I still feel the same way as you do. This song always seems to draw me in, and I'm not sure what it is, but I love it. :)

Thanks for the 10, I truly appreciate it!

Really nice.

I like the surprising drum entrance a lot. It changes the mood of the ambient synths in the beginning and makes the whole piece move more. This is a very nice song Mr. GW. I have a song that has a different take on Destiny as well if you want to check it out.

gamerworld14 responds:

Well thank you for your kind comment. I will check out your piece for you as well. :D

So beautiful. Just so damn BEAUTIFUL!

This song reminds me of my childhood when I used to travel through the country-sides of America instead of being isolated in the ghetto projects of NYC. This song deserves so much credit that this needs a record company to add vocals of a well-famous artist to this. Very amazing, incredible and awesome job on this masterpiece of yours. Yeah!

You really mean that? Well thank you so much, I do not know how to respond. But I am so grateful for this comment, really. Thanks SO much!! :D

Sky City

I can so imagine this being the background theme to a place in a futuristic-styled game, maybe like a Megaman X game. I imagine it being in a hallway with windows on the floor and on the cieling, and on the right side of you as you walk through. There are people next to you and stuff, and you can see the cloud layers really far below. As you walk through, you notice all of the ships floating by.
I loved the instrumentation, not to mention the effects you added in.
This is going in my favs, I usually hate ambient stuff :o
5/5, 10/10, And not to mention one of my votes is worth 5 ;3

gamerworld14 responds:

Wow, thank you so much. I really appreciate the time you took to review my song and favorite it. That really means a lot to me :D

I was wondering for anybody out there, would you guys like me to create some more ambient songs like this one, or some more trance. I haven't really had much time to work on songs lately, but it is almost summer and that thought makes me happy!



This song is so relaxing and soothing, I really like it a lot. I'm definitely downloading. I do a lot of stuff on Photoshop for many different things and I like to concentrate on my work. I listened to this song and loved it and then listened to it again while I worked on Photoshop, and GUESS WHAT???? It actually cleared my mind out and really allowed me to focus on what I was doing. And it turned out to be a really good picture. This song is great.

So overall I loved it.

The very first few seconds when you hear the main thing start it reminded me greatly of Mirror's Edge, and then it became a little different and that feeling went away. This also sounds a bit like the band Boards of Canada, although they have more odd sounds incorporated in their songs and this song all has it fit together incredibly perfectly. Did I already tell you I LOVE IT?! Anyways, good job and I am really moved by this song. I am quite compelled to see your other works.

10000000000/1000000000 (lol)

gamerworld14 responds:

Lol. Thank you so much for the great review. I really don't know why, but it really does clear my mind up easily too, that is why I loved making this song. I was wondering if you would pm me the link of the picture because I would really like to see your work on photoshop :D

If you like this song, you should really have a look at Just Dream by me too ;)

Oh and yeah, I have Mirror's Edge, so that could be an influence ;) but not sure I have heard of Boards of Canada before... will need to check them out :D
