Misael.K: Really just captured me with this one. Fantastic chords, and the vocals are just beautiful.
johnfn/Lunacy: You guys crammed SO MUCH IN. Got two meme samples crammed in, sampled Jordi and my own song and then made and epic song for everything else!
christopian: great reverb and nice movement, worked perfect for the theme
IO: Yours was awesome too. The electronic equivalent of the theme I would say

christopian: super lovely! I love how emotive is this. Nice sound design, the broken piano gives it a great quality.
Koekepan: great atmosphere. I felt this was closer to what I felt the theme was about than the rest of my "awesum" entries.
awesum: christopian, ethansight, ethasnight, InvisibleObserver, johnfn, Koekepan, NickC, Random-storykeeper.
good: DarkShadow, GreyHooves.

1) "Life Isn't Easy" - Life isn't easy, and neither are vocal entries. :P This was absolutely lovely; I love the chord progressions, the delayed arps and the emotion. Your vocals work perfectly for this song. I wish I could hear them a little bit louder than the music, but the accompaniment is so wonderful I can't really fault it that much. So yeah, top pick.
2) "Grey" - Gorgeous! Aw man, something about the aimlessness of this piece really captures that feeling you've described. And the sound design is so lovely, pleasant yet sad. Overall, very evocative.
3) "Eroding Urban Canyons" - Atmosphere is your thing and you got it down to a square. I like a lot of chord progressions in this and the overall sound design nails the desolate tone thoroughly. The only thing I would say is that it's maybe not as memorable as the other two entries? but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Whenever I listen to it, I get to relive the experience of why I enjoyed this in a fresh light each time.
Everyone did great, but NickC would have probably gotten my fourth place vote if there was one. I love the weird, pentatonic feeling, but I wasn't particularly fond of the loud growls that came later in the piece. Still, really good.
