Echoing in the halls of the best my friend, this song is fantastic. great recording, very very cool. i loved it :D

Nicely executed. I'm a bit in awe that you got such great recordings out of using Audacity. The drums in the beginning of the piece are quite enjoyable. The song starts off taking the listener somewhere, but, towards the end, everything just feels a bit droned out. The fading at the end is fine, I just thought everything that was going to lead up to that moment would be either be more uplifting or slowly down falling. Either way, great work!

Audacity's pretty great actually, I just use it to record all the different pieces and if you use the right mics, it doesn't matter what program you use. Of course it took much longer to mix everything than when you'd use ProTools to record for example.

+ You're right about the last part, after several times of listening I wanted it to be more downtempo, like a breakdown or something but I didn't want to do everything again so yea... Still a bit too lazy for that :)

Thanks for your review guys!

I agree completely with the comment below. Very forceful overall. Something I'm definitely striving for myself. The emotions rang through. Very awesome.

Thanks again then :D

Broad! Spanning! Cavernous! I really liked the huge reverb echo equalization aspects of this. When the singing came in at 0:37 i was just blown away by how great it sounded. Definitely one that needs to be played at full volume with some good headphones. The song structure was a little repetitive but it all sounded so grand that i had a hard time getting bored. The drums were very forceful and thumping so i liked them too. In fact there's nothing i didn't like about this song. Really nice singing style, reminds me of David E. Williams. All the instruments sounded very clear and powerful and the production quality overall was very proffesional. Downloaded and 5'd. Definitely a favourite!

Thanks, really!
