Just an instrumental version of the original song. Not sure which one I prefer. Let me know if you have any strong feelings one way or the other.

Interesting ambience. I don't think I heard the original version of this yet, but anyways this is quite a really interesting listen. ...Holy jeebus I wasn't expecting that rising FX sound at around 2:35 or 2:36! XD Then how the sweep cymbal leads back to the music. Wow, what a dynamic! I don't think I've heard an ambient track like this one.

Nice job Chem.

I like the simplicity of this track!

Glad you like it.


I think I prefer this one over the original, honestly. The voice was relaxing in the beginning but kept pulling me away from the song as it went on, almost like it was an interpretation of this world that is Not Like Reality (see what I did there?) and kind of has to be listened to to be understood, y'know? I thought this version was more mellow and chill, but then again I like ambient music like that so I'm biased :)

Chemiqals responds:

I think I agree. I'm also a fan of ambient music and I think this version is less busy. I mean... I enjoy some of the storytelling that those samples bring with them but overall, I prefer to let the music do the talking. Plus... I put a lot of work into the percussion on this track so it's nice to actually get to hear all of it. =P

Thanks for the feedback!
