A new song! I worked on this one pretty hard and i'm glad with the outcome.
Please listen to the whole song as it really changes around, so you won't get bored.
That's always something i try to achieve with my songs, avoiding that the listener gets bored.
Oh, and another thing.. for those of you who know music theory (i don't):
Around 01:30 there's a little section (it's one beat long) which changes the whole song. Because i don't know any music theory, i wonder if what i did (both in that section and after that section) was musically 'correct'.

Epic! (as usual)

I don't think I've ever listened to a song from you that I didn't like, and this is no exception. My favorite part was the beginning. (That's rather strange - I don't like the intros to very many songs) As for the thing around 1:30, who cares if it's "musically correct" as long as it sounds good (Which it does)?

Thanks for the review! :)


A large room of metal and spikes outlines the path to get home. He tightens his blue helmet, adjusts his gadgets, and gets ready to make the first jump over the large pit. He steps backwards a little, and then springs forwards in a mighty leap of faith. His eyes grow wide in excitement as he waits for the landing. He rolls to a safe stop, and looks up to see a flying, blue monster in front of him. It shines its sharp teeth at him and dives at him. He immediately smacks the bird with his gun, and fires a large blue ball of fire, burning the creature to bits.

He dashes towards a platform and leaps onto it, grabbing it and pushing himself upwards to the next one. Several platforms later, he reaches the top of the room and strides down a long, metal rod, shooting creatures along the way. They scream in his swift skill, and fail at their attempts to stop him.

Moments later, he reaches the end of his journey, and steps safely inside his home.

(((I very much enjoyed the beginning synth, it was very clear and sounded awesome. The rest of the song flowed nicely, and gave a really cool video game like feeling to it. Nice job!)))

I liked your story! :)
Thank you for reviewing.


I really feel like this has a sort of old school video game feel to it. The melodies just really remind me of old SNES game melodies for some reason. And that midi trumpet you are using just adds to the feel. I'm pretty sure its a trumpet anyways.

Overall this is pretty nifty. It is light and airy, yet has a fullness to it. The song doesn't have any obnoxious moments where I want to just shut it off. But at the same time it doesn't have any of those truly shining moments where I'm in awe of what I'm hearing.

This song to be honest is just a perfectly solid submission to the audio portal. Nothing to fancy, yet not simple enough to be boring. You've created some nice harmony lines that help balance this song out nicely. Well done mate.

5/5 and 9/10 overall. Nice work here.

Thanks so much for the review!
I don't really know what to say, but i'm happy you liked it. Although it's nothing too fancy like you said :p
Again, thank you and if you ever want me to take a look at something just let me know ;)
