I went with just the keyboard/electronic approach this time and it was my first time going down this route.


i like the emotion in this song :D

Thanks :)

Space puzzle anyone?

First off... I find the tune and beat so catchy my head started bobbing away like a bobble head.

I like the change of pace you go with at 1:22. Ooohhh that's nice at 1:30. And then the synth comes in! Dude I am digging this... As a lover of 8-bit you have me sold on this piece! Hmm... I felt you could have kept the 8-bit going on longer at 2:50 but you make it up so.. I'm ok. Ah I see what you did... nice job on refreshing that catchy repetitive part! This song has a Space feel all over it! And again you hit me with something new at 5:10 or so into the song. This song is so good I could probably use some pointers from you! 6 minutes in, and I see no flaws! I like the rush you gave near the end of the song... it really helps end the piece doesn't it? And the fade out is classic!

Overall, I have enjoyed this incredible piece, granted it is a bit on the long side... I will probably listen to it quite a bit more in the future. I am going to leave this song with 5 stars out of 5! I absolutely loved it! Ha! rather then me reviewing you, you should be reviewing me... :P I could use some pointers. Thanks for this piece, and keep up the great work!

Thanks very much for the encouraging words, I'm glad you liked it. Consider yourself favourited. I expect I will be reviewing some of your work in the near future!

Right from the beginning, I really enjoyed it. The synths you used are really clean and well-mixed.

I think it would work perfectly in a futuristic puzzle game of some kind, the atmosphere is just right.

As some have noted, though, it is quite long, but doesn't have the variation to justify such length, as far as I have noticed. It could be a shorter loop and still work well, I think.

This is a really cool song! I think it would be a cool soundtrack for a video game. However, if it would be a regular song for listening on an iPod I think that the song needs a climax to spice things up. I think that the length is fine for a song like this, but I recommend a climax of some sort. Other than that, the song is catchy and fun to listen to!
I give the song a 4.5 out of 5.
Can't wait to hear more!!

It layers nice.
It's imaginative.
It breaks nice ( first 1:20 real nice).
Mastering is crisp, bass has real presence, thing I always enjoy. The melody from 2:20 is reeeally retro and cool. Everything works quite well.

One or two things, though... first of all it's a bit too long. I know, that might come as a surprise, especially as it's quality material and not that repetitive. But it could really benefit from being concentrated a bit more. Either pace it, combining the ideas from 3:30 on top of each other, building up to a huge tension and explode in a fast solo of sorts, or just explode it somehow on the 4-5 minute mark - this are just suggestions, you would know better what to do with your song.
But it really needs a climax, a buildup, some sort of explosion.

Otherwise, it's real nice, layers, breaks, mastering, the idea, the retro but cool feeling. Just need some climatic buildup, an explosion because the song really has the potential for it.

Anyway, veritable experience listening to this.
