EDIT: Some people have have devoted their lives to make mine a little bit worse by voting down all my music here on Newgrounds so that I don't get recognized... When I came back after lying in bed for 3 days of having pneumonia and seeing all you people commenting and rating my songs and giving me super positive feedback! + That this song made it to the front page, gave me a genuine smile in a long time.. My life has hit a hard bump, and thanks to you all I finally feel some positive relief.

Check out my newgrounds Post for some information about my songs! =D

Thank you so much!



I am honest here, of the many audio tracks I've seen over the years here on NG, of which I've seen a lot, nothing I've seen have I ever called "Beautiful."

This is it, no song has ever actually set so many emotions so profoundly at once, your music is like the work of a master puppeteer, moving the hearts of his listeners.

Be proud, someone of your quality deserves to go pro.


Sound like you just came back from your slumber... In i was a girl i would say are you awake my prince? XD


I randomly narrated everything I was doing and thinking when I listened to this track. Everything I said sounded like an epic dialog from some movie! Outstanding work!

really? Haha that's so cool xD

At least Campbell's legacy remains.

The song seems like it's not quite finished, just cutting off with resolution but no conclusion. That, and the '"Ride after him!" theme' seems a little out of place to me, since the rising excitement seems to be the return of peace. The villain theme also didn't have much of a transition. I'd have also liked a sort of confrontation theme, but that's a personal point.

Even with all that, it's epic enough to become my first favorited song, so you know it still left quite an impression upon me. Great job, my man.

reel2 responds:

Gaah! You are correct. It missing the final fight/It's all at stake. Even tho "playfull fight" is sort of representing that the protagonist/hero is easily and playfully defeating his villain because he's mastered his abilities. And then eventually get's his girl..

Thank you for the 10 and fav. Much appreciated!

When it hit "rising excitement"

I was thinking that it was ognig to go into a more of a gloomy DOOM theme. Like something bad was about to happen. But then the happy music came back :(

All in all, you did an awesome job with this and I love it :3
