Reviews


i like it but took to long to like drop u know wat im sayin? but i like it though make some more!



I ordinarily dislike electronic sounding music. Don't know why, it just doesn't appeal to me too much. But this... this is something special, and I really did enjoy listening to it. So much in fact that I listened to it three times in a row. It was very relaxing and soothing, and made me feel happy while listening. excellent work!



Impressive tune! Immediately made me think of tinitus BEFORE reading your description, lol!

I give it a very solid 4 stars. I like the layering of both electronic sounds and live strings very much; however, the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the contrast between the electronic and live instruments is a little "harsh" (for lack of a better word). Perhaps a bit of after-production mixing could easily blend them together well.

Also, not meaning to sound snobby or like a jackass or anything - just wanted to give constructive criticism. Again, very superb tune and will be looking forward to more stuff from you! xoxo

Thanks a lot. A wonderful critique. A little too harsh? I could see that. Do you refer to the percussive elements? I know i've been thinking about changing the sound of the snare when it first comes in around 1:50. Every time I hear it I always want it to be something different. Need to open up the 'ol work file and get to it - I will eventually. As far as the other sounds, I feel pretty alright with them all. By pretty alright, I mean I hate everything I do, of course - ah-hah. Then again, I like to put contrasts between harsh/soft & fast/slow. I will usually sit on a track for a while and listen to it here and there, then go back and change things / keep in mind what other people have said. I'm always in limbo. :\


The best song on Newgrounds I have heard yet :)
