The melody in the beggining reminds me a lot of the dark souls menu music. It really comes into it's own after the first minute though. Very well done.

I literally just got dark souls yesterday! Thank you very much for your kind review ^_^

This song is so relaxing...

Bertn1991 responds:

Aww, really truly? Thanks, Andre. Happy you enjoyed it :-)

Absolutely stunning. Decent composition, nothing fancy, but very very pleasant to listen to. The production is almost perfect. It's very ambient and atmospheric, i love it. Would be perfect for a game.

Honestly, i think this is the most professional sounding song I've heard on this site, great job!

Bertn1991 responds:

Thank you for your very kind and thoughtful review. I'm genuinely happy you enjoyed it :-)

Day = made.

Probably one of your best. The melody is beautiful, memorable, singable... The instruments respond to each other very, very well. That piano has a really light, floating feel to it that doesn't encroach on the harp accompaniment. And it also gives me this sense of wonder, as if I'm looking out the window early in the morning. Despite its title, though, I have to say, this song would work regardless of whether it is raining or shining -- it's got the right sort of balance to fit both weathers well.


Bertn1991 responds:

Oh wow, thank you so much :D This may be the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me on this site. Thank you very very much for taking the time to write such a thorough, intelligent and thoughtful review. I enjoyed reading it!

And thanks for favoriting ;-)

This reminds me of Chrono Trigger. :)

Bertn1991 responds:

Ooh, I'll take a Chrono Trigger comparison any day. Thanks so much ^^
