So after a month and a half of working on this song, it's finally ready. I put 100% of my effort and the skills I've aquired into this song even though I doubted if it would be successful. I don't know why I pushed as hard as I did but I feel like I really accomplished something big here. I thank Newgrounds for helping me so much when I submitted this as a work in progress, it really means everything and everyone's encouragement probably made the song what it is now. I'm going to keep trying to improve and hopefully someday attract a label's interest. This is only the beginning!

NOT Mirror's Edge, before you ask, just a coincidence it sounds a bit like it.
Above & Beyond
(mainly just trying to do my own thing) :P

I personally like the second half a lot better than the first, It was written later and I had more experience at the time I made it. If this song was remixed into a more club based track it would focus around the instrumentation of the second half :)

The quality got lowered slightly to fit the filesize limit, it's at 192 kbps, but unless you're an audiophile you shouldn't notice anything.

More Than Expected

Sorry about taking forever to review this piece after you sent out the pm's. When you put up the work in progress of this song i enjoyed it greatly but the final product blows me away. The second part of the song has to be my favorite and ties the song together. Keep it up.


It was really enchanting for want of a better term....
Really great build up and climax impressed :D

Nice job


I am really speechless. This is incredible! Great job!!!


I love the flow and the feel of this track.
Keep up the awesome work!

cant talk....caught in beauty

This song really does reach the highest peaks and spread across the bluest of seas. A beautiful piece indeed. one of its own.
