Part two of a trilogy. This one was supposed to be for the tutorial level, so a slower, easy-going version was necessary. This one actually turned out to be the better of the three in the series. I chose to name it after Sunset Hill as opposed to Green Hill because the two levels’ music are practically identical, but this one sounds more like the sun setting. You can tell I even tried to replicate the same riffs from the previous piece to fit the whole concept of being in a game. Overall though, the community liked it because of how soft and dreamy the tone was.

Yes. That is true

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

YAY Someone gets it!

Doesn't this kick a little ass.

Pretty peaceful if you ask me. It sounds like Green Hill Zone. But I've never acually played Sonic Advance 3. So if it's supossed to sound like this...

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Yeah. In fact I've noticed that the Green Hill is used in other games too. Kinda awkward if you ask me but yeah.

Anyway, I'm glad you like. Thanks for the review

nice job

i cant imagine fighting in this music though, its too calming, maybe it will be used for nice midnight "walk" ( in sonic's dictionary)
the endind is really cool too, in a flash, at the end, u could make sonic look at a full moon and instead of turning into a werehog.... the wind would blow, his hair and ears blowing in the wind, creating a calm relaxing feeling, then END.
wat do u think??

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Fuck the werehedgie lol.

But yeah I like that. A sunset turning dark. That's actually what I pictured making this song was a nice "rundown" of the level lol

New Name

Consider this: Midnight Hill

Get back to me on it

P.S. : What does XD mean?



PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

Yeah, since its been suggested, I'll go ahead and change it. Sounds cool anyway

and btw

I'VE NEVER BEEN A FAN of this level a little to sappy for playa but you did it justice of course i'll use this in my flash , friend
