Starts off pretty slow, but give it time, and I guarantee that this flower blooms.

I played this game back in elementary school and I never forgot about this song even when I forgot what the name of the game was. Friggin beautiful.

This single song is responsible for the beginning of my personal adventure into the world of music. Now I listen to Boards of Canda, Aphex Twin, Benn Jordan, Ben Frost, Venetian Snares, Yasume, Seven Ark, EL-P, Hol Baumann and many many other amazing artists. All because of this song.
Changed my life for good

Love reviews like this. Good artists on that list, by the way! Seems you've been steered in the right direction :P


A sigh of relaxation. The composition of this song is second to none very intelligent. Atmospheres are original. Sounds, and rhythm is original. It creates more than a thousand visualizations. You manifested a whole bunch of sounds to create a piece to piece world within your mind. It's truely amazing. If I want to be stereotypical, I would say I feel like you placed me within a factory that is creating a numerous ammount of robots, and structures for futuristic tastes. Or, if I really want to go deep. It's like I am walking along the lines of emptiness in reality. Watching infinite designs soar across my mind within my mind, feeling the hollow, wholesome feel of a land of whiteness. Stripped of everything, and nothing to be exact. Surreal, and so real at the same time. Great work. 10/10 5/5 Favorite'd.

Surreal songs are the best. Thanks for the review!

The twilight has ended...

And it gets good after about :27 and :34, too. =)

Gillenium responds:

Ew, I never liked Twilight!

Beginning Reminded Me of Reverb 2

It started slow, but still good. The layers of it were pretty well orchestrated. It wouldn't loop well, but I guess that's not the point. Near the end the whole thing got kind of slowish boringish. But altogether, you pieced it together well.

Gillenium responds:

I appreciate the review!
