Dear god, pure epicness
Amazing song. The only bad thing is it does get just a tad repetitive after a while, but not repetitive enough to bring the score down a star, because then the rest of the song just makes up for it.
Right now I'm so awestruck from how amazing this song is that I cannot think straight, and therefore I cannot right a fitting review, so I hope you'll find this one good enough.
Great work you two. You should definitely do more stuff like this together.
i did not know delinquent had a sister let alone a twin, sorry im a big fan of ur brothers as one artist fascination of another artist and i see the ridiculously gifted talent runs deep in the family ive heard every song ur brother has on newgrounds and commented on pretty much close to all of them, wich ill most like to do for u and to the question above u did the whole orchestral part the vocals and the smooth melody while ur brother did the drums and the whole hip hop theme as i told ur brother dnt hesitate to check out my body of work i dnt sample it is all original from every single note id be honored at that. sincerely urs Hyperion
This is the shit you two did an amazing job on all the collabs of you guys I've heard!! Four thumbs up if I hand two more hands...and I can totally tell who did what! =P Keep up the awesome!
Quite win. It has a good buildup, well mastered, yadayada. Your usual standard of excellence.
What would boost this track dramatically is vocals, but I'm pretty sure that's pretty obvious in hip-hop. :p
As Wylffyre1 pointed out, the choirs get repetitive. They're beautiful, but used to much. In the intro they fit just nieely, but some other choirs later on would be better. Or just leave them out after the intro and replace them with another melody.
Also, the more 'optimistic' part, the bells and all, they're not really fitting into hip-hop. They fit in medieval tracks, they fit in classical tracks. They fit into your style. Though this is a collab, and should be treated as one. I think the biggest flaw on this track is that there is more of a clash of both genres instead of a collaboration. Like they go on and off to 'shine'. You should let the genres flow into eachother like they're happily married with 3 children and a pool in the backyard. The thing is, that's darned difficult with these genres. It's near-impossible to make a track like that. You succeed very, VERY well in the intro. I'd say what distracts the most from the overall flow are the bells and the high pitched synths around it. The track starts with a darker moodset than where it ends. This track would seem fitting for vocals and that always somehow changes the way you look at a track. A problem occurs that when I try to think of meaning lyrics, I find myself starting with a sad story/problem and ending in a fairytale.
I'm not good enough to give technical advice. I tried to judge by my own feeling towards music and I hope it helped in any way. Don't get me wrong, I love the track to bits. It's original, but the collaboration feeling wore off midway. A bit of a shame, but totally understandable. Once again, it is incredibly hard. Both of you did a great job on the track.

Something very different from ya =)
different in this case isn't bad. I'd say this was a very good collab between the two of you. Only complaint is the choir'd vox that repeats a bit through the song. Gets in the way of the actual beauty of the song. Though it doesn't go through the whole song it still gets on the nurves after a while. The piano at 1:51 (i'd have to say is something you had part in) is beautiful and at this point you can really focus on the beauty of the song. The beat is damn good and very hip hop-esque. The flute that comes in at 2:04 (also your i'm guessing) is fun to listen to. The choir is also nice at that part. Everything flows and transitions well through out this song. Makes it a good listen. So for the most part ya'll got my five and my favorite =).
That sample is a bit overdone... perhaps so. The beat is DJ-Delinquent's by far and that's really well done. As for the beauty of the song, we were aiming to have two parts of the song that were sort of polar opposites. Dark vs Beautiful. Or you could say Beauty and the Beast. :P
Thanks for the review!
