Made all with fruityloops + me playing guitar. Long because it has lyrics too.

Love this song.

I had forgotten to review this song back when I favorited it. I really like the melody, it's so peaceful and beautiful. Perhaps there's no major buildup as SS mentioned, but it's still a great piece. Perhaps you could have added some effects to the piano? Sounds a tad bit simple to me. Keep it up ;D

Care to check out my latest song, .:Not All is Lost:., by the way? I'd appreciate it.

This is pretty!

Very beautiful keys and everything ^.^! Reminds me of something out of a video game actually! Which is neat! I really like that fading bassy sound... I'm guessing that came from a synth??? Well... Overall really nice! I am excited to hear the vocal version you mentioned in that over review response to this song!!!

Good concept & progression...

...but it doesn't seem like there is enough diversity. My ears where craving a nice big buildup into a nice big chorus, but it never really came. The music doesn't lend itself to being this long without some additional changes and instruments being dropped in and out.

It's also evident that the patterns in the drums are very Hip-Hop influenced, and not so much built around a rock mentality or rock drum kit. Basically, a human rock drummer would never play the drums to this song like this, however a lot of Corporate R&B drums sound this way.

I hope that this review helps! I did like the song, and I am only offering what I hope is constructive criticism to make the future of your music that much better.

Thank you a lot for the review man. You actually put thought and backed it up, and I appreciate it. I do agree with what your saying as far as the drums go... I don't know if that necessarily makes it BAD, just not exactly rock. As far as the progression, there is a set verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus order, which I think would be more clear with the singing. I am trying to get the vocals sounding good, and hope to submit that version as well, and maybe you'll like it better. But thank you a lot for your input.
