This is my entry for round 1 of NGDAM! I'm glad this competition had me writing music. I may add a few more vocal parts later, but deadlines. teehee~

Edit: Wow, thanks for the frontpage exposure NG!

Edit 2: Updated mix! No more bass drum problems <:

From the doubt in our cortex
Rationale is attained;

Repose keeps us afraid
But fear is the chemical gluing our vigilance together

Reason lets us thrive
Use the spectrum in your eyes

From a callow soul comes courage
Naive courage

No God to guide me through this, my nerves quiver steadily, but that means I am free
Now, no longer hollow, but still, I'm just a formula

Oh, our hearts are led astray, but that's okay, for we are just chemicals
Our souls may stay as shallow ponds, but nothing's wrong; we are the universe

Can't think of any other words to describe this song... completely blew my mind; so I'll just stick to the word that Newgrounds prompted me with on the button I clicked. Respect.

This is pro dude. I can't think of anything negative to say about it musically. Seriously! Anybody who says that it seems like it's all over the place, in all respect, just doesn't dig the complexity of this style. The music community on New grounds continues to stagger me. The flow you have going on here is amazing. And when the flow gets cut short, it's always because of creative fills and transitions. Mad props dude and keep making music, cuz I wanna here it.

Last but not least, you remind me a lot of two bands. Between the Buried and Me, and Subterranean Masquerade. By chance do you listen to them?

Thank you for your kind review! I'm glad you appreciate my musical ADHD!

I've actually never heard of Subterraneon Masquerade. I've heard lots of BTBAM though, yessir.

What an interesting song. It was very poetic and it made me think a bit. It also had very interesting changes throughout. The guitar solo was sweet. Favorite line was the last one because it's true, we are the universe.

I would say it was pretty elite-level quality overall. No major criticisms.

Overall, I thought this was a good track, but some of the drum fills sounded odd at places, and the song tended to drift into unexpected directions. The guitar solos sounded as if they were part of an improv. Your vocals were okay, but sounded off-key in parts, not nearly as strong as in your audition piece.
