Reviews for "The Lonely Reunion =HFX="


I did what Skiddledou did, I cryed. I read the story, with the music on... omg.... Very few songs will make me cry... good job *sob*

Do you know how to use flash?

I want to see your story along with this song in a flash. I could see it. I could see the whole story just go perfectly with the song. Great job!!

Wow... ok this is what I am seeing from this song.

December 2 1943

6th Army Division

2nd Infantry

As I am writing this the Commisar is rallying the men to make what seems like a desperate push to take back our city, Stalingrad, oh beautiful stalingrad, how could you let yourself be held by these vile Nazi dogs. This is the place where it all began, I lived here, played here, worked here in beautiful Stalingrad. As I am writing this, I can still hear my children playing as if they are right outside my tent, I know that it is not true though, they died when the bombings started, they were vioulently ripped away from this earth and are now looking down upon me from heaven. I can almost feel they're gaze as I am writing this entry. The Commisar is calling now, I must leave now, this may be the last thing I write, if I do die today, it will be for the Motherland, it will be for all those that were taken prisoner and viciously executed and hung from the rafters of the houses and buildings that are still standing in the city, it will be for my wife, for my children, they were spared that embarrassment, they are buried somewhere under the rubble of what used to be my home. I must leave now, they are readying the boats for the assault to take back control of stalingrad. I hope our winter has frozen any reinforcements for those Nazi pigs.


this actually made me cry.
the story is great.
seems like something that could really happen...

*waiting for something bad to happen* D:

I'd listened to this earlier. I'd thought I'd left a review! =o

This piece is very suspense-filled. The introduction was nice and simple and the melody carried throughout this song was hauntingly beautiful.
My suggestion would be to fix the violin. It is definitely too loud and doesn't seem to change in volume much, which makes it sound too solid and just there, when it could add more emotion by fluctuating in volume more drastically( I mean the violin's force, not the tremolo-like sound it has shown here), and seeming more heartfelt like the actual violin's sound. The violin soundfont is very beautiful, but I don't appreciate it enough because of it's 'just there'-ness. Soften the sound at some parts, and have it swell at others. But basically the overall volume of the violin needs some decreasing.
That seems to be it.
Everything else is just so wonderful...the soft and suspenseful piano, the emotion-invoking pads and choir, the tensely beautiful harp(?), and the xylo(?) gave it that extra touch, relieving the song of so much grief and tension.
And the final minute of the song. It gave time to relax, but still held much tension, leading up the end. Especially when it slowed down out of repetition, I loved it. *shivers* D: ..feeling all gloomy now..
Good job! ^^
I thought the very end was a bit short, like cut off nearly. I think the harp could have done a longer arpeggio instead of the entire song ending on that last note or the choir fade out for a 4 seconds or so, to give that slight lingering feel. The ending sounded nearly cute! :o
OVerall, this is a really amazing piece. Your progression with the song is nice and the melodies are beautiful. I can't wait to see this animated! Although sad, it is an inspiring piece.
