The Lost City is a story I made up back in late 2009, and that was around the same time I started making music, so I made up some tracks that sort of reflected the storyline. It took me about a 6 months, but then I just sort of gave up. I started using a new program, and I just left this album, sitting there, unfinished.

But halfway through 2011, I was listening to them again. They clipped and some of them weren't even complete. It was like C-3PO from Star Wars Episode I; there were parts showing everywhere, and although you could tell what it was supposed to be, it was quite obvious that it's just a prototype, but in the same way it's quite likable. So I decided to upload it as just that: something I was working on a few years ago and was proud of, but it's just a demo.

Right now, I'm like Anakin, going off the become a Jedi, but one day I'm going to come back and finish off what I've started here to make it gold.

I made this before I ever heard about dubstep, but I guess that's kinda what it is. This is the part where the adventurers are in the desert and there are all of these weird and dangerous alien-like creatures.


Attempt at Desert Vibe = Success

I like this one a lot more than those dubstep tunes. Overly nasty bass isn't everything in music!

You really did bring across the grimy, evil desert-vibe with the melody and the atmospheric synth in the back. However, many parts feel heavily layered to the point where you can almost tell the individual tracks apart - something you could fix easily through altering the melody here and there and making the sound of the entire mix a bit "fuller" so it meshes together better. The clap, despite the previous sentence and a bit too much compression/bitcrush, does fit in surprisingly well, so keep that bit in there for sure.

I don't there's anything else I can criticize. 4/5 - 7/10.
