This is my track for a videogame soundtrack project:
91 Crumbling Ruined City of Mur
It always seems to raining in this dark, dreary ruin. There are no great structures left in the city to hint at its former greatness. Everything is but a skeletal version of its former self. A hint of evil lingers in the air. Aside from mosses and mushrooms, plants refuse to retake the ruins, and dangerous creatures skulk in the shadows.
The piano is Ex-Tonehammers/Soundirons Emotional Piano.


Whoever votes this low is a fool.

Why this music gets a vote of 5 from me:

This person gets the drive of music right in this track.

Music is supposed to be about the atmosphere, to either encapsulate a vision completely, or to create a vision that does not normally exist. This song is perfect for both means.


Why this review gives it a 7 out of 10:

I do pay heed, however, to a couple of messed up instrumental sections. One is of a nearly out-of-place (at first) clarinet a 1:58, which later on deserves the place it has.
The other part is the piano at 3:37. It should have stayed wound down, rather than a sudden twist upwards for ten seconds. That was jarring and unnecessary.


Whoever votes less than 3 on this is a fool. That is the minimum it deserves, because it's a good track, despite the flaws that it does have.

Good day to you all.

Thank you, your review totally makes my day :)
About that woodwind sound, it might indeed have appeared a little more naturally I think... The ending originally had a crescendo cymbal, too, so this is already "reduced", but I can understand how it is "surprising" in a negative way - I just felt the urge to build a little climax there, because I feared the slow and quiet atmosphere might become boring :D
