Great song! The melody is good, the chords sound great, it all goes really well together. It sounds something that would be in Minecraft: Volume Beta. That's not a bad thing, it sounds really nice.
Thank you homchom! ^_^
Sir.... You are a marvelous artist. When I listen to a lot of your music it makes me think of a more modernized version of a piece that would belong in a game like Proteus or something more balanced around it's music and scenery... or a 2D platformer of sorts. (Sorry for the gaming focused review but I play a lot of video games.)
Yeah! Totally get it, it's the chiptune stuff flying all over the place. I actually used to be very video game focused when writing music. Nowadays I just use chiptune elements for no real reason other than that I have been before.

Some of my biggest inspirations! :D
The chords are very soothing, and the slow start of the piece really adds to the emotion. As always, I loved the melodies and atmospheric space. The beat that comes in at 1:53 was quite unexpected, although I really like how it gives it a bit more energy there. Around 2:35 - 3:15, there were some eccentric harmonies which I wasn't really sure what to make of. I think they really add a new dimension to the interpretation of the song, which I suppose is a good thing. The kick at 3:29 felt a little out-of-place. Maybe you could transition into 3:45 similarly to how you transitioned into 1:53. I like how the beat at 1:53 is mixed and distorted so that it almost seems "hidden," although you didn't do that with the beat at 3:45. Perhaps you should, at least until 4:17. I think it will be fitting with the style of the piece. The glitch-y transition leading into 4:16 felt really climactic and cool, though, and I love the bit at 4:17. Overall, excellent work as always, Johnfn! This one is probably my favorite of the 3 pieces you've submitted in the last 24 hours.
Thanks! You have a lot of really good suggestions and ideas. I especially like the idea of reintroducing the filtered beat rather than just bringing in the kick for the buildup, that's probably something I'll do in the future. I have to say though, I'm confused that you say this one is your favorite but you give the other one a higher score!
