Hope you like this song! :) The finale of my new album, On Happy Island, available for download soon at http://bleurkrds.tumblr.c om/post/8633193423

The working title for this song was Yes We Can 2, as I hoped to capture the same vibe as that song, as well as the variety of styles used. While this song lacks in some ways what made Yes We Can so great, I hope that everyone can enjoy it all the same, because I sure enjoyed making it, and I still enjoy listening to it! :)

Reviews would be wonderful, and ratings as well. As long as you don't just bomb it with zeroes (not cool). But, freedom is what it is, and I know that what happens will happen. Love you guys! (Some of you.) :P

Psychedelic Jungle?

I wanted to get this off of my chest, but this felt more like jungle than trance. However, that doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Seeing that no one else has reviewed this, I'll fill that void.

Instrumentation: You have something that definitely feels like a legitimate psytrance song, mixed with a jungle-style breakbeat at 1:38. Also worth noting is the use of a music box and wood block at the middle of the song. Oh, and the guitar used was badass!
Composition: This is the kind of stuff that is flash game material. Those melodies were energetic and appealing to the ears, like a conscious experiment done right. It seems that you have the ear for composing music, but from 4:02 onward sounded like a missed opportunity. I mean, it's just rain from that moment to the end. What happened? Run out of motivation and/or ambition?
Other: Not much else aside from being legitimately original and creative. By the way, I think you Audio Portal/SoundCloud/Bandcamp/Beatport guys ought to take a cue from Cheshyre and Zach Striefel by teaming up with various (Flash) animators/programmers on here.

What I liked about this:
-Excellent instrumentation
-Very melodic
-Clever mix between four on the floor and jungle-style breakbeat.

What I didn't like:
-Felt more like jungle than trance

Overall: This needs both a nine and to be used in a shit load of submissions. (4.5/5)

Cutting-Christ responds:

Oh, thanks! Sorry about the late response. I don't really hang out on Newgrounds much anymore. I saw you sent me a message so I thought I might as well check out the review. About the icon, I guess I'll add one now.

I should probably get on here more as it is a nice portal to display my music to other people. Welp. Thanks for the review. It would be lovely to here more from you in the future. :D
