I have decided to create a series of songs. It is because of the song "The Cave" and how well it was received. So I will continue in this series, maybe we can put this stuff in a game! Anyway, enjoy!

It could have been longer, and looped better, and had percussion, but I still 5'd it. It's pretty, but it's still just a I-iii-V progression.

Thank you.

That early midi piano sound really takes away from the tone of the track. I recommend a better soundfont of some sort. I could recommend some excellent freebies.

Thanks for the review.

I think it's pretty, but I'm not sure I like the samples you used. Also, the way the notes cut off around :09 sort of disrupted the smoothness of this piece IMO. I like how you tried to create some dynamic contrast at :14, although you may have needed a crash or something to transition into that part. I like the melodies, and the progression isn't that bad, but I think you need some drums and more structuring in order to make this piece more interesting. Also, it doesn't really loop that well IMO. Sorry this is such a negative review, but I like these harmonies and I think you could've done a LOT more with this piece. For example, :46 seems like it should be a climax, so maybe you should add some more pads there and some drums and really turn it into a cinematic one! Little things like that can really bring out the emotion in pieces like this. I'd love to see this made into a full-length track with more structural variation. Keep at it, man! ;D

I don't mind negative reviews, unless they don't give me good feedback. I love that you were honest and didn't just say you liked it. Thank you so much for the review!
