Oh my gosh. I finally finished this song. I've worked so hard on it for everyone who wanted me to finish it, and I'm proud to say that I've finished it, even though it was HARD. I've worked on it for over 12 hours, or three months, working a little on it everyday because I didn't have enough inspiration and imagination to make it in one go.

Seriously though, I would love some criticism, even if the song is shit. This is a song that I've worked really hard on, and I would like to know what are its qualities and flaws. Mostly the flaws.

Thanks for listening!


I like the atmospheric mood at the beginning and the synths. The relaxing melodies are good, and it definitely has a good sense of climax and direction throughout. It is a little simplistic and repetitive at times, though. The main melody recurs a lot during the first two minutes. I appreciated the variations you started incorporating around 2:30, though, but even those last for a lengthy 45 seconds. I didn't think this piece had to be 5.5 minutes long - maybe 3 or 4 instead. The structural relief at the breakdown at 3:14 was welcome, though. I think the chord progression is a little cliché, and I think you needed some more transitional variety besides the simple sweeps and crashes. That said, the mixing is pretty good, and I like how you concluded the piece. Overall, it's pretty good. I've been tough on you. The repetitiveness and simplicity are the main things, but keep up the good work, Tourmithefly! ;)

This music is smooth and mellow. Mmmmm. I would enjoy exploring a cave in a video game with this playing in the background. As repetitive as it is, it never annoyed or bored me. :D

Ahah, thank you! ^^ And yeah, I've repeated the main theme multiple times (Each time with different instruments playing, though.) so that you can hear the difference with the melody at 3:13, where it sounds more "tiny" and "alone". That's what make it so repetitive, but I personally think that it actually fits the song.

Lovely song!

Thank you!

Huzzah! It is complete! I think it's an improvement on the WIP.

Ahah, thanks ^^
The WIP had a "canned" impression to it. I'm happy that I noticed it, or the finished song might have kept it and it wouldn't have sounded that good.

Thanks for the review!

That music would totally fit in a platform videogame like Cave Story , and it sound really good.
It sound a lot better than the last one, I can approve it

4.9899/5.0000 because the perfection doesn't exist

Well, thank you ^^

And yeah, the bass in this song is calmer, but still present and I think it's perfect for the whole song :p
