Happy new year!

Yes, this will be my last song for 2009.

I went to James Cameron's Avatar the other day and really loved the music. So I decided to make my own jungle-like music.

Hope you like it. All critics and comments are much appreciated!

Certainly worthy of the film

If anyone is going out there to make some sort of Avatar parody, serious short or whatever, this needs to be included, even if it is just for the theme music. I think that this is a brilliant rendition of a piece that would be well suited to this particular setting.

I can see that you enjoyed the film, as you've brough back this music and it really shows that you care, giving some good time and effort to the piece. I think that I'd like to hear some of your more doom-laden pieces as for the parts of the film that were not so nature-orientated, or awe-inspired.

It's not a bad loop, either, which makes it ideal for the setting of flash movies. Perhaps with a little more on the drums, you'd be able to get a better effect, because they seem a little faint in places, especially where ti seems that you're flourishing them in a crescendo.

EagleGuard responds:

Thanks man! I'm glad you liked it :)

It'd be nice if people used this in their flashes, though I'm not sure if it'd fit in. I'll try working on the drums next time (they're not really my specialty).

Thanks for the review!


Some very nice melodies in here although the background melodies could be tad bit louder.

Anyway, the atmosphere created by this song is very medieval, which is think sounds pretty cool. I haven't seen Avatar yet (and I doubt I will see it in the near future), so I don't know how big the influence from the score of that movie is.
But I think the atmosphere in this song really is more medieval than jungle-like. Even though the bongos really give this piece a "jungle-like touch".

EagleGuard responds:

Thanks for the feedback. I don't see how this sounds medieval, but oh well. Glad the melodies worked out OK.

Thanks for the review!


Somewhat makes me think of a Donkey Kong having been just completed which is pretty cool to me. Nice job, kind of feels like a mix of Donkey Kong and Egyptian stuff.

Bongos: Really lays down the smack on the rhythm, heh.

Cello?: Don't know if that's what it is but it sounds beautiful.

Orchestra: They just make it sound amazing, nice piece of work.

Overall: Awesome!!

EagleGuard responds:

Glad you liked it :) (Although I didn't think of Donkey Kong when I started making this xD)

And it's congas and violins (unless you mean the instrument that plays the melody, which is an oboe) to be precise :) Good guess though.

Thanks for the review!


i apologize for starting on a negative note, but i think its kind of wrong to say this piece of music is classical just because you are using pianos (and some digital classical instruments). That is the biggest turn off for me on NG, the abuse of programs like mixcraft and fl studio...
anyway, this was pretty good. Even thuogh i did not watch avatar, so i do not know your inspiration, but I really enjoyed your mixing style. One thing i would recommend is panning. That would accentuate the chord change from a major to a (harmonic??) minor at 1:32... besides that, i enjoyed this...

EagleGuard responds:

I know it isn't exactly "real" classical music, but this is about as close as it gets to getting realistic sounding samples (I don't have a real orchestra in my backyard, so...) I used reason 4 to make this btw ;)

I think the panning was alright to be honest, but I'll give it a little more attention the next time I write a song. By the way, it goes from major to melodic minor (descending that is) :)

Thanks for the review, and the 9! Glad you enjoyed it.
