Author Comments

Alright, I worked on this over the course of 4 or 5 days. My favorite pair of headphones broke yesterday morning, so I didn't really master this as much as I would have wanted to. I'm still happy with the results, I hadn't worked on anything for so long in a long time. I still wish I could have made it a wee bit longer and included an extended break, but I didn't have time for it.

This was made for the Newgrounds Death Match. All votes and crit are appreciated.

I dedicate this song to Katy for being adorable.

NGADM 2009 Group 2 Round 2

Now this is simply great. I adore any trance with well placed vocals in it, i simply love it. Instrument blend in the intro was enough to leave me with mouth gaping open in amazement. The climax was simply great, with a superb kick giving the trance that extra edge and discoish feel. I wasnt exactly expecting the vocals when they came in but they were simply superb. Great work. Bass was simply brilliant, transitions as smooth as ice and overall work simply fantastic. Briliant work.

SCORE : 10/10

P.S. This is your judging review from the NGADM 2009 Group 2 Round 2 and i posted it here cos its cool to have more reviews.


Oh, also ..

.. I'm going to stalk your newgrounds collection, because of the nice review you made of my song. kthnx.

Anyways - the kick came at :34ish and I was like LOL!

Not like LOL as in IMLAUGHING@U but LOL as in THIS IS AWESOME. There's great build and smooth melody - didn't expect the vox, but they're a nice touch. I would have liked to se them worked into what happens for the rest of the song. Either make a bigger deal of the vocals - or bring them back more often. They seem like something you'd build to, not something you'd put in the beginning and seem to forget about.

I love when someone stalks my NG collection <3

Glad you liked how I made the build up. I was going to make the intro a little longer, but I ran out of time for the competition. The vocals were really just a test. Hard to believe I used a laptop mic for those. I considered adding them for the second verse but I got lazy :P I -might- redo this whole song and turn it into vocal trance. MIGHT. Depends on how I feel I guess.

I REFUSE TO FOLLOW YOUR SILLY LONG RESPONSE TREND. Or, y'know, I can't really come up with a longer response, but thanks for the review :D

Your collection's got a new stalker ;)
