This one is simply awesome, as usual, I simply love your songs, they have an epic feeling, and a great ambient, I loved the song's progress, the tunes are awesome, the beggining has a dark/underground sound, and I like the way you built the tune up, with that amazing piano tune, adding the violins (it sounds like a violin, correct me if I'm wrong. xD), and in the end, everything sounds great, all those instruments fit really well in the main melody.
You know I'm a big fan of your music, it's really awesome to listen to something like this song, it made me chill, it has a perfect atmosphere, I imagined a lot of different things while listening to this song... I guess you accomplished what you wanted, as always.
Keep up with the awesome work Steph, I expect more awesome and epic songs from you, and sorry for the bad and late review, it's been a long time since my last review, I completely forgot all I've learned in the RRC, lol.
Heeeeey, how you doing? :D
Thanks for reviewing man!
"This one is simply awesome, as usual, I simply love your songs, they have an epic feeling, and a great ambient, I loved the song's progress, the tunes are awesome,"
Glad you liked all that! Melodies and atmosphere are definitely two things I'm proud of in this song.
"the beggining has a dark/underground sound, and I like the way you built the tune up,"
You're not the first to notice the dark sound of the intro. I did that because I find it easier to start a song in a dark/atmospheric mood. Whenever I try and start songs in a light/happy mood it always comes out really gay, haha.
"with that amazing piano tune, adding the violins (it sounds like a violin, correct me if I'm wrong. xD), and in the end, everything sounds great, all those instruments fit really well in the main melody."
Great! Yeah, after the piano there's a violin, along with a viola, a legato cello and a more subtle cello/double bass in the background :3.

I haven't been making music as often as I used to, unfortunately. It might be because of college, but I think it's because a few years ago when I used to begin making a song, I'd make it whether it sounds nice or not so nice, and submit it anyway. Now my standards are a bit higher and I find it harder and harder to start decent songs.
Although yeah, I'll try not to disappoint :3.
"and sorry for the bad and late review, it's been a long time since my last review, I completely forgot all I've learned in the RRC, lol."
Nah man this review was awesome! Thanks a lot for stopping by, I'm very glad you liked the song!
I liked this song, it's a pretty cool thing to listen while you're talking to your friends in MSN...
I liked the beat, it's pretty cool to listen, I like the drums and the synth, it's a pretty smooth sound, I liked the little variations you did with the bass and adding a bit more of sounds into the main melody. It turned out a very cool tune to listen to...
I felt it had a really good dance sound, the drums and the cool rhythm make it a very nice thing to listen, and it made me want to dance while listening to thins song... lol
Overall, it's a pretty good song, but I think it was way too generic, I think you could have done more variations, because there were boring parts... But I think you've done a pretty good job, keep it up dude!!!

I liked the idea of that special challenge, and I think it was a pretty good song, since it was composed in 50 minutes and all that other stuff.
I liked the bass line, and the main guitar with a nice and relaxing sound, I liked to listen this one while I was going through newgrounds, it's a very good song for what what proposed in that challenge.
I'm givin' you a 10 because that's a very good song, I think it turned out great. My onyl complain is that it's way too short, it's a very good idea, so, I think you could just keep it up and add more things or make it longer... Keep it up dude!!
Well, I would've made it longer if I had more time.
I may revisit this idea in the future, but for now I won't edit it, in the spirit of the challenge and all.
Thanks very much!
I liked the beggining, that main beat was very nice, and the back beat and the drums were doing great too.
I liked the way the song got more animated, the drums sound was very cool, and the melody and the rhythm were very well done. The melody kept basically the same, I think you could have cutted some seconds in the beginning, you just used the same beat and melody, that part could have been shorter.
I liked the rest of the song, pretty cool, nice beats, melody, rhythm, the harmony was awesome... I think you did a very good job here dude, I just think that there's something else missing, I think that you could have used another beat instead of the same rhythm the whoooole song...But, anyway, you did a good job, keep it up dude.
Man, I really feel the epicness of this song... I loved the darkness it has, the keyboard ia awesome, the bass is great, the drums are in perfect harmony with the rest of the instruments and the guitar was really fucking awesome. You did a mindblowing job here, the whole song is a masterpiece, it remembers me all the Metallica's songs, they're long and have a great touch of epicness.
The keyboards gave the kind of dark and epic feel to this song, they fitted perfectly to the guitar sound, wich was awesome, I loved he solo, and the power chords (correct me if I'm wrong) were awesome as a riff. The drums were calm at the right times and aggressive at the wright times... I loved the guitar sound in the solos, they're greatly well done, I think it's a great composition.
Seriously, it's one of the bests songs I've ever heard in NG... I just think some transitions could have been done better and the quality wasn't great, due to the song's size... MAn, it's so good that I think you should talk with a famous label, like Universal or that other shit, I think you'd be very succesfull!!
Keep it up dude. This was a great masterpiece, during all the time I've been in the RRC, I've never seen such a brilliant song like this one... Man, you rock!! \m/
I try my best to get a good bass sound- I love the bass! And I think the keyboard organ sound is the darkness that this song really needed. And I'm going to get an internship in a recording studio from school (it's a requirement believe it or not), so that'll help me a lot.
Thanks a lot! I appreciate it!
Well, well, it's a fucking great song dude, I don't have too much to say, I think the current score teels you what this song is...
I loved the beat, the synths and the melody, the whole song is awesome to listen, it has a great sound, and I had a great feeling navigating through Newground listening this song. That voice was really cool, and the 03:19 part. What was that man? It was compeltely AWESOME. I loved every second of this song, it's perfectly well done, I think it deserves to be more recognized... Seriously.
This song was absolutely amazing, it's great to chill out, and it'd be great to listen this one in a ballad together with your friends... I can immagine that. The song rocked man. Keep it up!!!
I think that a pretty good song, the concept is great, your voice is very good, but it gets out of the melody sometimes, the guitar is very good too, it fitted really well to your voice, but it was very strange to listen, it's completely rough.
Like it's written in the name of the song, "Rough take" it's very rough! The sound quality is very bad, but I can still listen to something good inside of it, if you play it and then fix it, play the guitar very well, w/out mistakes that I could listen trough the song, and then sing and fix your voice, it'd be cooler, just like a real song we buy in the music shops!!
It's a pretty good song, you have potencial, but there are some mistakes in the riff, the very begin is very strange, because it seems you missed a lot of notes, you can play it better man, you hve a great potential! I think that if you fix it in the PC it'll look way better, just keep it up!!
Thanks about that!
I liked this one a lot, the guitar was great, it realle passed the impression of a desert, the main guitar melody together with the back one resulted in a great mix, altough the 0:30 to 0 :34 part was very weird, the guitar sounds didn't fit well, they overloaded the song in that part.
I liked the kind of delay (a guitar effect we use to play and the note kind of keep on playing) effect you made with both guitars, they souded really awesome together, the background one is doing the base, while the main guitar is playing the main melody, that was really nice!
Anyway, I think this was a good song, altough you overloaded in that part and I think the end wasn't too good, you could have done other thing in the end, like playing the main melody note with both guitars and let them ring, it'd look way cooler. But, I think you did a pretty well job, keep it up, I wanna listen more from you!!
Thank you very much! That small section is getting alot of attention for not fitting. I think that has alot to do with it follows a native sound and breaks away from the time signature people would expect. I listened to a bunch of true ethnic songs to get a feel for this and I noticed they incorporated a lot of extra little speedy flourishes like that so I tried to recreate that.
I liked this one a lot! The beggining wasn't too great, it seemed it was going to be a song w/out anything good, but in the 0:14 second, you variated and the song started to get cool, I liked the variations you did in the back beat, but the main melody kept the same!! You could have changed that melody when you added the background beats.
The song is very cool, I liked its concept, the melody and the beat are super cool, too bad you didn't variated too much the main melody, it'd be a great song if it had more variations like the 2:52 part, it was the best art of the song for me, I liked the life it gave to the song, all those background sounds mixed with the main melody were awesome, I loved that part, it was really very creative!!
Anyway, that's a good song, my only complain are the repetitions, you pretty much only repeated the same melody the whole song, you could have changed the notes a bit, variated the notes, and not only work the song in simply one base. But the song is awesome anyway, I liked it... Keep it up dude! Awesome job!
Man, this song is sooooo good, chilling and beautiful. The acoustic guitar has a great sound, it's an awesome thing to listen, it is the base of the whole song!! The pian ois awesome too, it gives something nice to the song, it gives life to the song, and the main melody with the synth (hmm, I don't know what is that instrument in the 0:14 part), it sounded awesome.
The song is great, I don't have words to describe it, everything worked perfectly, the melody is great, that's why the instruments sound that perfect... It's definetively one of the bests songs I've ever heard in NG... Keep it up with the awesome work dude!! I loved this song!
Thanks RogerBK, your feedback is helpful. You make me blush by the amount of praise you pile onto this song! Thank you for listening and enjoying!
