This is very good. The drums were kind of weak but you knew that already. And I thought you can get more "drunk" with the piano/guitars at the end. But again, this is really good. I would actually love to hear this one with better sounds.

And 0-bombers really really suck.

Thanks for the review! This is a song that I wanted to get a real guitarist/drummer for with a singer, but it never panned out.


This sounds like a very charming piano piece and I like how soft it is too. Kind of makes me think of someone walking away from home and just going very far away from civilization as they can no longer stand how people are treating them anymore and they just want the pain to stop hurting so much mentally and physically. Very beautiful song.

The chorus sounds very nice here and greatly uplifting like they will always have hope for the future and never have to truly stop talking or being near people. The guitar gives a feel of how jagged their life has been and sounds great. The drums are calm and the fills sounds really nice too I think.

Overall, very nice ballad I think. Just needs vocals of some kind added.

Thanks for the review! I agree that it needs vocals, but I don't know anyone who can write lyrics or sing.

Really beautiful piano melodies

I really enjoyed all of the piano work in the piece, and the guitar work was a nice touch as well; the drums do sound a bit cheezy though I can't lie x_x. The mixing/ mastering sounds good, and the tone of that piano is to die for.

I can tell that there was a fair amount of emotion put into this song, and I can really appreciate that a lot. The blend of different instruments was refreshing to hear, and rather original too. The guitar work in this was really nice, but I would have liked to hear a guitar sample to stand up to the brilliant piano tone.

Overall this is a really interesting, different, and moving piece.
Very well done

Thanks for the review! I know the drums are kind of cheesy. Sometimes cheese tastes good, though. I did the best I could with what I have.
