Microcosm is a very good name for a song. It's almost like some soon-to-be-famous Newgrounder did it back in 2013. Catchy melodies as usual. The bass was a little too loud IMO, but the mastering is good. I think you overdid the reverb on the crash at 1:49. Well-structured, smooth-flowing, the usual suspects. Your endings are becoming increasingly less cringe-worthy. Also, good to see you branching out from that one genre you always make (sorry; I'm in a snarky mood today). Still, I like how it's upbeat, and it has a great sense of structural ebb and flow. Keep it up, Johnfn. ;)

johnfn responds:

Thanks TL! Actually, I write tons of non chipstep songs all the time, but I just never release them.

lol jk

Also I completely agree, Microcosm is the best name for a song!

Really cool jam, I don't know what you hated about it.

johnfn responds:

haha its just that when you work on a song for too long you really start to get tired of it! i don't hate the song, but i was PRETTY freaking tired of listening to it!

I'm glad that you were able to release a full song :D I've been listening to your music at least once a week for the past year. Redemption is one of my favorite songs.

This song is fun to listen to and it's good by itself, but it's not as memorable as most of your recent songs.

johnfn responds:

Thanks! I feel like I only really got into 'memorable' territory around 2:00 or so, and then by that point I was so exhausted that I was too lazy to then redo the entire song around that idea. Oops.

I hate this track about as much as I hate myself.

That said, I'm glad to hear something new from you! Not even sure if you managed to produce this to be really loud at this point, or if my ears just haven't adapted to using headphones for the first time today. Either way, the mix is as always, on point ;)

Gotta love that glitchy melody effect <3
And the melodies too ofc xD

So tasty... I really want to eat this song.
Ahem, there's one thing I need to say though...
It should be illegal to create a masterful work of art, only to burn it in front of the audience :'(

P.S. Did I mention that I absolutely love myself?

johnfn responds:

Lol. How did you review this so fast? I am literally in the process of reuploading to fix that cut-off ending, which I started immediately as soon as I listened to the whole thing.

Anyways thanks for the review :P
