@Misael.K - Maybe heroin too lol.

@JohnGabrielUK - More like Breakcore knitting haha..

@Vaia - 236bpm....

@Sansero - To be honest, i think i'm just making troll entries at this point. It's rare to get anything serious out of me...

@Misael.K - Reminds me more of U-Ziq....

@CotMM - Dark. Hope she was ok...

@Misael.K - Listening back, you're right. I actually had to boost the audio, with an EQ, because it turns out the breaks were taking up so much room....

@CotMM - Phew, what a relief.

@Vaia - The lead could have been better executed sure, however i am pretty thrilled with the rest.

@Misael.K - Lol i guess i've already explained why...

@CotMM - I wonder if you've ever played Compo music at work? That would be funny....

@Vaia - I guess some people find it a bit much. I'm always trying to push boundaries, so i guess it's learning....

@Misael.K - The whole thing is pretty, and that's why i love about it. It just needs polish.

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!

Now then...

TheVideoGamer - Breakcore it is, and at 236bpm it goes at a pretty wild pace. The breaks are only one half though, because the rest is dominated by really beautiful chords and arps, with an illegal amount of reverb. There is so much reverb, it masks the whole thing into 1 ethereal texture. I tried to make it more grounded though, with a bassline and a melody. The intro is a contrast, to make it seem like we are going from industrial textures, into lighter melodic moments. Could be polished though, but as a whole i enjoyed this one.

cotmm68030 - Very unsettling, almost horror movie like. I have no clue how you managed to record vocals, since your are at work, however it could be some public announcement or something. Really dig the simplicity here, well done!

Arcana - Really nice melodies here! Enjoyed them a lot. There is a lot of timing issues here (Quite heavy timing i would also add too), but i do like it. Glad to know, how your progress is going with new DAW. Good job!

JohnGabrielUK - Very lovely soothing piano. The reverb is amazing on the piano. I dig the melody and chords, this is soo good. Incredible work!

Misael.K - This is also another pretty one. I love the chords a lot, very child-like. The vocals are very scary for me, it sounds like your are vocoding a vocaloid lol. As much as i am in love with the backing, the vocal combinations are really unsettling to me. The second half is great, because you actually used just your solo voice. I guess it's how i feel. Good job though!

Vaiaphraim - Ooh the drums are soo cool and funky, i love the dark retro approaches here. Great intensity here, has that great dubstep influence. Well done!

Sansero - Also dark, i was not expecting sewing to be a horror-like experience. As you listen though, it becomes bright and more melodic. Action RPG melodic feels. Lovely melody here, i love how it all flows together, well done!

Top 3 - JohnGabrielUK, cotmm68030, Vaiaphraim

Sansero: lovely emotional tune.

JohnGabrielUK: minimalist piano that works well for the theme.

Vaiaphraim: dark with energy, maybe more than what I expected.

cotmm68030: I liked the atmosphere and the creepy AI voice, but it ended up being a bit long in the end.

awesum: cotmm68030, JohnGabrielUK, Sansero, Vaiaphraim.
good: Arcana, TheVideoGamer.
