This is another song for my game, Eclipse, a Rayman fangame. You can read more about that here:

This song plays in the third world of the game: the ice world. You're very close to the last world. In fact, it's just across a huge ice fissure. You manage to get across, but your companion, Lily, falls in. This plays when you decide to turn back and dive in too to save her. Really, you have no other choice, since you can't reach the last world without her help either. While you're falling into the ice fissure, a monster appears, and you have to fight it ( that's why the music gets so battle-y ).


Very good, except for one thing.

Overall I really liked this, but I have a feeling that this song is going to annoy people if they have old or crappy speakers. I noticed that the low notes for the main tune that runs from the beginning until 1:20 (I think a xylophone, it sounds like that) sounded strained when I listened to it through my speakers. This makes sense, since in general it sounds like this instrument is more left focused anyway. It wasn't until I plugged in my headset that this went away.

So it's not asked, I'm not using crappy speakers (Just old ones, but they were top of the line when I got them and beat out a LOT of speakers shipped out on computers made today. The last computer I bought, I didn't keep the speakers when I noticed the sound quality was better from these ones), so this concerns me. I'm not really sure if it's something you can fix, though I did notice the problem was GONE when the other instruments came in and the xylophone-esque instrument's volume was dropped. I'd thinking maybe dropping the sound on it for the entire track to a single volume level would ease the problem. However, since I do not know how well this song is made to impact when it is used, I cannot say for certain if this is the best idea.

If I didn't have this initial listening problem, this would've been a ten.

I heard this before (I think), starts out quite magical and well snowy? Then seems to kick in the actiony epicness of it all. *brrr*

Thanks for the awesome review, Dan. It isn't that awesome though, because you didn't put the "L" in front of epicness. Tssk tssk. :P
