Thanks :)

Also, to answer your question: because someone made it their personal mission to zero-bomb me daily haha

Dude your instrumentals are awesome; you should advertise your tunes more, somehow. Anyway you will probably be living comfortably off the money you make from your music one of these days, so keep it up!

Rampant responds:

Haha thanks. I would love to make all my money from music, but I'll probably have to get a real job to supplement it (booooooo!!!). Until then, we'll rock people's stereos with Problem Child tracks.

I love the violins plucking in the beginning. I'm not sure how to spell it... so i'm just gonna say plucking and hope you know what I mean. I think this song could be a little more powerful. The song was very lively and had awesome moments and such, but it never felt like it was pushing me to my emotional extent. The song is very very fitting for a video game though. It just need a little bit more and it would be awesome! It was nice though, it was very cartoony and fun to listen to. Themed for a cartoon show with a halloween special or something. It got a little repetitive at some points but it was still nice and didn't bother me that much! Nice work though and nice use of instruments.

Also, it'd be awesome if you could check out my original song "The Return" and give feedback!

4/5 review and rating

It was generic, to me. I thought there could have been more creativity, especially because the rhythm is recurring and the choice of instruments was overly quintessential to the holiday spirit. The chord progression itself I thought was more cheery and less spooky. A part of that is because there's a lot of sound in the high register and nothing really holding much of a bass; it's sprightly staccato without anything low and eerie. I guess I thought it was cheesy, but some people like that. Would especially be nice for a short children's story. And don't get me wrong, tonality and actual instrumentation was arranged perfectly. I just thought you could push boundaries with this some more. This could also work well as the theme for a forest level, whether it be dark or just an average forest. Overall, a nice work that I think needed more punch!

Rampant responds:

I envisioned this as music for a fun Halloween game embodying the cheery and fun disposition of the holiday festivity, not a horror film. It's simplistic and - yeah - maybe a little cheesy, but it's fun and easy to listen to, and it's not obtrusive, nor does it require a lot of attention.
