Wow, the loop is so seamless!

The song is energetic and lively. There are so many nice textures. I love the sound design, as usual. The bass around 1:00 is spectacular, and so is the lead around 1:400 – it seems to have a simple base sound, but the texture of it changes so rapidly– . I like that you used some simpler synths later in the piece. One of the basses sounds like it's trying to scream; it's such a lovely effect that makes me want to be more engaged with the music. I'm blown away by the outstanding production quality and complexity of the sounds, but that tends to happen when I listen to your music :)

Montron responds:

thank you for your review! :)

This is so beautiful. It reminds me of the main theme from Starbound :D

Bosa responds:

Thank you! I haven't played that yet, but I will have to listen to the theme definitely!

How is this only 2:45 minutes? It feels like 10 minutes of earpleasure. The song depicts an array of emotions in such a short amount of time.

ChronoNomad responds:

Haha, that's a pretty good trick, no? Very kind of you to say, BlueOceans! I had a lot of fun making this track for the Deserted Island contest, and I am completely blown away by the overall number of listens and positive response. Perhaps I should make more tracks out of samples like this...

Many thanks for the review! ^__^

Wow, your synths are always incredible. I love those plucks, and the bell is a nice addition. As always, there's so much to admire about the drums. Some of your synths have pretty orchestral qualities, which was a fantastic idea.

Montron responds:

Thank you for your review blueoceans! The pads and swells were created in absynth. They sound pretty close to strings do they! It was a fun experience.

Thanks again for your kind words. Take care!

I really enjoyed this. It's a complex track but it's easy to follow. It's rare that I get such a great impression of a song from my first listen. I'm glad you managed to get in and I hope you do well!

Spadezer responds:

Alright. Cool to hear. Thanks for the kind words

Fantastic! And I have to say that your accent here is quite interesting :)

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Damn you. But thanks ;)
And good night!

This was one of my favorites from the competition. Music rarely has an emotional impact on me; I usually solely listen to music in an analytical manner, but your upbeat music actually puts me in a good mood. Your drumming is superb as always (and thank you to Johnfn for revealing you as the musician during the competition :p ). I really like the sound design; it's so nostalgic and playful. Nice work!

LunacyEcho responds:

Thanks, BlueOceans! I'm glad that it had an effect on you—in the end, isn't that what writing music is all about? :)

And grrrr that darn johnfn giving away secrets

I'm a big fan of your compositional tendencies. I just wish you developed some of your songs more.

GreyHooves responds:

Hmm, I definitely can understand you on that. Sometimes I have a lot of pieces I work on at the same time, so some of those tracks end up not getting as much attention as some of the others. I mean, this track is not only short, it also just repeats itself, which is definitely me just getting lazy about it, and a bad habit I have with some of my tracks. I think I just envisioned it as something that would loop during a chase scene in a game (that doesn't exist). I should probably come back to this one and make it a fully fleshed out piece.

This is more entertaining than the original :p Seriously, you had some amusing voices :D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Oh God this exists still, hahha :'D
Why thanks ;)

Wow, this is quite a complex and polished song. There are small details to be found everywhere. This is a nice feat considering the length!

The atmosphere here is excellent. It becomes better as the song progresses, and there’s always something interesting going on in the background. Thanks to all the various effects, fx, and changing instrumentation, the song retains my interest for the entire duration.

So I like the orchestral elements of the track from a compositional perspective, but the sounddesign is lackluster. In particular, the percussion and violin sound muted and lifeless. I don’t necessarily expect vibrant instrumentation during a quieter part of the track, but I desire higher quality and more expression. The pads and other ambient sounds during these parts sound flat themselves, but they layer nicely.

I like the electronic sound design very much, except for some minor things here and there. For instance, the piano sounds slightly too bright.

Awesome transition around the 4:30 mark; that was brilliant execution!

I found the drops to be extremely underwhelming, especially considering the long wait times. I think one problem that arises with this kind of hybrid is that one may expect vastly different emotional expression and development from both genres, and that can make it difficult to sate one’s expectations after a genre shift. With that said, the drops as standalone music sound pretty good.

The arrangement is not bad per se, but for me, the lack of a satisfying drop detracts from the overall experience. I think the intro is solid; however, the ending, although well-executed, seems premature. I expected the song to return to its roots.

Despite all my negative thoughts, because of how complex this song is, it’s hard to have a negative impression of it. There are many minor yet likable elements that add up :)

EctiBot responds:

Thanks for the detailed review BO :). I read your review a long time ago and I was fully planning on revamping the track based on it, but I had to travel and time kinda slipped away from me. I think the drops are underwhelming is a bit too grand to be followed up by a
light happy buildup. Agreed with the orchesttal percussion. I really should have worked more on the mixing for them, but stuff like that always tend to go under my radar :/.
I'm planning on sticking with fusion music for a while because I really want to learn how to make a track combined of different genres still be coherent.
Thanks a lot for the feedback yet again:)
