Thank you for clarifying.

The decisions you made regarding this song make a lot more sense to me now that you've explained your perspective. I think there is a lot of positivity in this piece; I get a sense of honor and hope. Given your intent I'd say you did an excellent job.

Original 3 1/2 star review:

"This piece reminds me of something out of Disenchantment; it has a strong medieval fantasy vibe. I like it. I'd like to know what your thoughts were when you were making this. Did you have a goal in mind? Was there a project your friend requested that you made this for? To me the title of this piece is confusing; the word "reign" is by definition authoritarian, yet "Liberation" means freedom. Can you say more about that?

I'd like to give you better feedback than that, but without knowing your perspective I can't, unfortunately. I need to know where you're coming from so I can give feedback based on how clearly I thought your ideas came through in this piece.

Hey, thanks for your review ;)
My friend is making a game for his school project. It is about a poor kid from middle ages that has a dream he is a knight. So I made this as his title screen theme.

I'm from Czech republic and I took this as kind of an oxymoron type title. If you wanted to translate this precisely (not literally) into our language it would sound like "The time when someone sat on a throne and liberated his country".
For us the word "reign" means "when someone is the ruler", so it has neutral meaning. We add the meaning based on words connected to that. So "Reign of Liberation" means a very positive ruler.

As for the vision I had in my head- I made a hopeful song. That was all. My brother mostly comes up with names for my songs, because he can give a very nice touch to the words in those titles.
His hobby is lore making and story writing, so he always has some picture in his head. For this one it was like a cinematic from perspective of a pigeon that is flying through the land and has flashbacks of what it was before and of what it is now with the new ruler sitting on the throne. (He also wants them to sound exotic, so for example my previous song "Stellarion" was named after latin word for star- stella)
