I like the atmosphere at the beginning and the chord progression. The synths sound pretty quirky and refreshing, too. There’s a lot of reverb in the texture, but the mix holds up pretty well. The heavy pads at :41 are a bit cheesy, and at times this piece is very slow to progress. The drop at 1:25 is pretty cool. I like all the vaguely orchestral-sounding hits, which you made sound pretty creepy with some modification. This piece lacks some strong melodic content or harmonic variety, but the structuring is well-done. At times, I wanted the drums to be a little louder, especially with the crashes at 2:53. The second drop is also cool, and I appreciated the short post-chorus at 3:43. The end cuts off a little suddenly, but overall this is a strong piece. The quirky sound design, solid production quality, and rhythmic content of the drops are all highlights here. My main concerns are the lack of variety and lack of dynamism in the composition. Keep up the good work, TIMarbury! ^_^

TIMarbury responds:

:)))))))) thank you

I would give you more stars on this song, but, well, let me explain.

Problem number one: 1:25 to 2:06 was way to out of place, this is due to whatever sound effect you had that sort of jumped was absolutely over powering the entire section of the song, so much that I was about to just stop the song before I remembered that I loved the intro. (can't remember the name of the soundtrack) And it took me at least the entire time writing this review to get used to it.

Now I know you got some good reviews on this song, but that is from newgrounds dubstep regulars, and they are used to really heavy dubstep with almost no flow or rhythm. (sorry for the harsh review though, I really am a fan of your music)

the second problem was kind of trivial to most people, but to me, this song was a bit over cinematic for a standalone song if you know what I mean. does not matter really tho.

TIMarbury responds:

appreciate the honest review, i agree with most of it, it sounded empty so i threw in something and that's the best i could come up with. lmao

One more good song from you, TIMarbury. I hope you stay by dupstep and techno :D

TIMarbury responds:

thanks man i will!

This is some really calming-growing type of dubstep I really like.
I really hate dubstep that is like too hard and unstoppable or tracks which are called "Dubstep" but have a dubstep element appearing only once in the entire track.
Even if this track had kind of wrong transitions, I really like it and gave it a 5 even though, my thoughts are still on giving a 4 instead, so 5 to improve the reputation of this track. Keep it up! I pretty much enjoyed this! :)

TIMarbury responds:

thanks for the review man. i agree!
