A pad-based (intentionally no traditional lead) track that is semi-liquid Drum & Bass at 170BPM. Also, this song isn't as repetitive as it may first seem.

Rather than a cheesy love song this Valentine's Day, I've given you this piece, about hope and effort. If you want to apply more story and depth to the title, art and melodies then great! (That sounded sarcastic in text, but it's not.)

I hope this makes up for Aztec Trap being a slight flop.


Well you earned a download and
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

FortressLord responds:

Glad you like! In fact, the holy power of the ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) has made me come back to Newgrounds.

I personally love it!
the reason being is that the build up gives some ups and downs and the way how is how it feels emulsifier while just listening .
Thanks for making it :D

sorry about the bad grammar i'm Dutch and well Dutch and English grammar tend to go not to well together....

FortressLord responds:

I actually have two cousins who are Dutch so I understand a bit about how the grammars don't really combine. : )

Anyway, thanks for the great feedback, I'll be sure to use the 'ups and downs' kind of chord movement again.

I want to say I like where you were going, but the repetitive and cheap piano sounds made it pretty boring. For the most part, it sounded like basic Midi keys. I kind of liked the beat though, and the drums sounded pretty nice. 3.5/5.

FortressLord responds:

FL Keys sound kind of cheap however many effects are over them, so I totally get that. BUT I'll be making a more synth-driven track soon that will also (hopefully) be less repetitive.
Thanks for the review.

Great mood and atmosphere, love the piano pad, its crunky like a chiptune but still audible to fit in.

the different parts work well together and the solid beat through out keeps it all running smooth. Its a very commercial track and i can see it doing really well. I will explain what i mean by commercial, its very safe and almost 2 dimensional, it doesn't have the brilliant timings of your other tracks but it does however have an amazing open appeal and can be enjoyed by everyone.

I can hear the emotion and 'your' sound resonating throughout, it would work great as a soundtrack to heart break or the loss of someone. I would loved to hear more dynamics, rising and dropping of sound and instruments, having disjointed beats meld into one.

Great job overall though dude :-)

Thanks for the review and the actual points!

I'm making another track in this newfound style, but with more mixing and automation so it sounds more dynamic and natural. I hope you'll like it if I finish it (day 3 of working on it and only a few bars in).
