It should be the back ground music to my wet dreams. I mean dreams where I ride whales and harpoon boats. I am A-sexual.

Well what's stopping you?


johnfn responds:

Thanks :)

Yup, this is cool.
I actually enjoyed that effect in the beginning, although many seem to have taken issue with it XD

This got slightly repetitive with that piano, since it played the same thing through so much of the song, but not to the point where it got annoying. I especially must compliment you on your use of instruments though!
Well, it looks like pretty much most of the things that matter have been said by others already :p

'My job here is done'.

(Seriously though, good job XD).

johnfn responds:

Thanks! Yeah it's kind of a cliche thing to have the piano repeat a single phrase the whole time so perhaps I could have thought of something else.

Thanks for the review :)

Great song Johnfn! to me it sounds somewhat like the music you would hear in Donkey Kong Country.
Very nice work :)

johnfn responds:

haha yeah! in fact i've gotten that response so often that I actually went to go listen to DKC... I think it's mostly the high vibrato leads that draw the comparison :)

I wasn't a big fan of all the distorted effects in the first thirty seconds, but the piano and string melodies were beautiful. I continue to admire your fusion of electronic and orchestral music genres. I think during the first 2 minutes it progressed a little slowly, and sometimes it felt like the only mobile aspect of the song was the sweep. It goes without saying that 2:09 was a highlight. The emotion and moods are rather impressive, and I think you stayed loyal to your theme of regrets. I liked the ending with the piano a lot, too. I also appreciated how it got glitchy at some parts (i.e. 2:08). Overall, excellent work. The latter 2.5 minutes are rather danceable, btw! :D Keep it up, Johnfn! ;D

johnfn responds:

See this time I was all like "I'm going to put the troll ending at the beginning instead of the end!"

The real rationale for what was going on there was that the first 30 seconds represent something happening, and the rest represents the feelings of regret. So I had to keep it in for the storytelling potential, you see. ;)

It is dancy but it's so moody that I think I would cry if I danced to this. hahah

Thanks for the review :)
