I made this in a spare afternoon the other day and have enjoyed listening to it so I thought I'd post it up here. It could do with some additional material at the end and maybe some thunder sound effects in the middle to evoke the Storm part of the song a bit more. Might sound pretty good in a flash RPG or something if anyone's interested. Cheers for listening, I'd love to hear any feedback!

Thanks for listening dude :) I really like this song and Im glad you listened to some of my other ones and came here. Cheers for taking the time to leave a review! :D

Quite amazing

This was far better than i expected it to be... i love the start, and the strings once its built up past 0:40.
You have some talent here, it just needs a tad of EQ work here and there. As for it sounding good in an rpg, it might. Coincidentally i am currently making an RPG, and i may consider using this :3

Hey there thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed the song. I didnt spend a massive amount of effort or time on this so Im sure it sould be cleaned up more; but I agree its nice to listen to.

Youre more than welcome to use it in your Flash work, just let me know when I can play it! :D

Excellent song, although the title doesn't fit

Very, VERY well put together song. I absolutely love the background effects i there. I think the title needs to be something different, though. Doesn't put me in the "stormy" mood. I think "Melody of the Rain Forest" or something like that might be more appropriate. 5/5 10/10

curriemaster responds:

I reckon youre right about the title it just came out sounding much more calm than I had originally thought. Might change the name if I ever get round to working on this track some more. Cheers for the review!


Love the beginning melody and what led afterwards. When the strings and bass came in.. <33333 Nice.

The sound effects were a nice touch too.

When everything came together, it sounded very good. I couldn't exactly tell where the storm came into play with the piece, because to me, it all sounded pretty high spirited to me.

Anyway, this is good. Nice job!

Favs? =P

I think so..

curriemaster responds:

Cheers for the review, glad to hear you like the song :)


This is beautiful! I love the calmness in the beginning, and how it builds up. The sound effects really make the song too!
Something about the melody, especially towards the end, just really struck me as being really beautiful.
Lovely song!

curriemaster responds:

Thanks very much, after listening to it a bit more I might have to extend the end in the same vein; it just seems good but brief. Take it easy! :)
