Old funky FM music inspired by this amazing art by Carrion https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/captain-carrion/temple-distraught


Official AIM Review!

Funky VGM vibe on this, and good phrasing. Would probably liked a bit more presence on that bass, perhaps a drier sound. Drums pull me back to late 80's and 90's drum machines.

Transition around 1:10 was satisfying.

Overall, not a lot to critique. Track is just solid. 2:28 volume level is just a bit unexpected. I also felt record scratches were just slightly overused, but not really a huge deal. Static outro probably could have been cut a few seconds shorter.

Wish I had more to say. Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!

---Official AIM review---

I like the filtering work with the drums at the beginning and the groovy, mid-range bass. The melody that comes in at :17 is really cute. I love the retro video game vibes I’m getting from this. I think the drums could’ve been a bit stronger, though, especially in the first 50 seconds or so. The mixing and mastering are really strong. Clean, loud, and distinct sound. The texture doesn’t have a lot of legato elements, which begins to wear on me after a while. You could get a fuller, richer sound out of the piece even by incorporating some sort of pad or drone. I also think you overuse the stop-start transitions a bit (1:20, :45, 1:55, etc.). The piece has several different moments of minimalism as a result, which is also something I don’t think you want to overuse. That said, the mood, instrumentation, melodies, and mixing are all really enjoyable in this piece. While the piece does have a lot of variety, I commend you for incorporating enough repetition towards the end to make the piece seem cohesive overall. Overall really strong work, despite my nitpicking. Keep up the good work, Blarrgensnorf!

OH MY! Man, you are huge. I've been listening this song from like 40%? And I've seen it advance step by step. I've been super hyped about this, thinking how's it going to turn out, you didn't disappointed me ;)

The melodies are sick man, reminds me a lot of -Sunwalker- from @Waterflame.
Your mixing/mastering is great!

You nailed it with this one man, AWESOME job and good luck.
