This is an older composition written for and inspired by anyone who has ever taken a stand in the face of overwhelming odds. It takes a lot of courage to stand up for what you believe in, and this is one is dedicated to those that never lost hope; anyone who keeps getting back up even when the chips are decidedly down. After all, if you never give up...how can you ever truly fail?

im crying

I have always had a secret passion for of a revolutionary feel and you my friend hit it on the pin of the needle.

ChronoNomad responds:

I am both surprised and pleased to see such a response. It's not the first time my music has brought forth such strong emotion, but for some reason it always makes me feel particularly accomplished; like I somehow managed to take hold of someone's heart strings through song. All tears are blessed, and tears of joy most of all. Thank you for the immense compliment.

Final Fantasy

Or Chrono Trigger... this should be the music for when you're preparing your party to face the final boss, or fighting some sub-bosses before the overlord (always gotta have some insane BGM). Like!

ChronoNomad responds:

That would certainly be fitting! One of those "You've really messed with us and our world, so now we're here to kick your butt" kind of things. Classic.

This has a slightly retro feel to some degree, but I've always enjoyed the energy in this particular piece. Thank you for your review! :)

Great focus.

You certainly described it well, the intro with piano, creates an interesting mood, kinda heroic, kinda uncertain. As it progresses more and more...the instruments become more intense, and it kinda makes me think Mega Man X. You've got a good groove here.

The reason the score is somewhat low, is - to me - there should be a stronger emphasis on percussion. This type of song demands a rockin' beat to back the groove and allows for more people to "feel" the rhythm. Just a thought. I still think this composition is pretty good, look to hear more from ya. :D

ChronoNomad responds:

I hear what you're saying about the percussion. I just decided to go with the less-is-more stance, and I've always felt that it kind of ramps up the dramatic nature of the piece. Percussion is a funny thing; one person will imagine it one way, while someone else will take a completely different approach.

I'm glad that you liked this piece, and I hope you check out some more of my work in the future. Thanks a lot for the review, and I'll never be too disappointed with a "Lucky 7" score!
