A little masterpiece

I really like this song. The guitar and the piano together sound really great. The mood is somewhere between relaxing and almost sad or lonley. This sadness/lonelyness is intensified by the sound effects you added to the song. Especially the rolling thunder creates an image of sadness in my mind.

Really good song!

I like rain, but only when I'm not getting rained on.


Oh wow is this a very charmingly soft piece. I like the guitar a lot. I can just see a person very softly picking away on their acoustic guitar and then a second spotlight turns on and a friend begins to play on a keyboard beside them. They look at each other and continue on playing for the audience. The audience never says a thing and enjoys.

I liked the violin that begins to come in as well. It gives an even more relaxing quality to the song itself and kind of makes you feel a little better. However at the same time it makes you feel sad as if someone had just left you forever yet you will always miss them dearly no matter what. Years pass by, well two years anyway.

You soon decide there is little to nothing left to live for and become cryogenic-ally frozen. You wake up 2,000 years later, a lot has changed and you find out your girlfriend became famous for several things. You begin to date a decadent of hers and live a happy life. You feel close to her just being with someone who came from a long line starting with her.

Overall, beautifully composed piece you have made.

I enjoyed your story.

So fucking beautiful

I love the interplay of the guitar and piano on this track. The melodies are so beautiful, and when the progression changes at :59, the emotion intensifies. I'm sorry I couldn't give you more words on this, I'm not much of a musician. I can't really comment on this, but I just HAVE to give you props on the whole feel of it. Everything works together to create the feel you give in the title.

Great piece. I love it.

Stargenx responds:

Thanks for the review! You don't have to be a musician to enjoy music. That's the beauty of it.

Sounds very calm/saddish

I really like it, reminds me of some video game twist just happened, and now this music is playing in the background...something I think a Final Fantasy game would use, probably for a game over or something of the sorts.

Good job : D & Favorited

Thanks for the review! A lot of people have compared my songs to Final Fantasy music. I've never played the game series, perhaps I should.

Chill, smooth, and with a touch of emotion.

Damn, that piano is downright sexy. The introduction with the guitar, and then the lead of the piano, sounds great. Is there some added background ambience, or is this piano recorded live. I'd be interested in hearing what you used for the piano, if it wasn't recorded live. Cool strings fill the rest of the soundscape, and this is awesome. Good work, this totally makes me think Chrono Cross...and man, that thunder effect adds some real emotion, just wish it was extended a bit longer. Totally downloaded. :D

Stargenx responds:

It's not live, just manipulation of reverb, hehe. I added rain effects in the background. I made this in Logic Pro 9. It's one of the standard plugins with some edited effects.
