One word: Club.
I can just hear this being a club banger. Awesome work!
The reason I give a 9 and not a 10 is the absence of reverb; the song feels kind of 'stiff,' like a silghtly starched t-shirt or something, without a small amount of reverb on the instruments that leave dry areas. (E.g. the dirty synth that comes in at 0:42.)
Overall, though, absolutely love the track! FREE DOWNLOAD FTW, although I would not be hesitant to pay for it if t'were being sold!
5.00 / 5.00 (+ 0.0000030)
It was already at 5.00... I guess I'm just that awesome.
And speaking of awesome, this entire concerto is pretty impressive. Did you actually play these on the piano or use a program?
I actually played these lol!
Part 3 itself took a good two months to get just right!
Thanks for the comment!

"Fragile but Friendly" feel to it
Sounds perfect for a puzzle game.. Two things that you could improve on;
The drums are all default FPC, which isn't all that bad, but those sounds are just generic and kinda boring these days. Beat is nice, instruments could use some work, so I'd recommend something like Battery 3 by Native Instruments, or maybe EZ Drummer by Toontrack, or just downloading some drum samples and swapping them out with FPC defaults.
Second improvement is at the end - the drums stop quite abruptly with very little music to fade out (the music ends slightly before the drums do). To me, it sounds like you accidentally cut the music off early, or left some drums there that should have been cut.
The song could be longer, too; my only suggestion here is to add a buildup intro, turn what you have here into the chorus, and make a bridge for it to transition for a good 45 seconds into another replay of the chorus. So it would go like this:
|Intro/Buildup (mixed together)
It sounds like it belongs in the Video Games section, so there wouldn't be any 'verses,' unless you wanted to make it an interesting tune and lay it out like so:
|Buildup (separated from Intro to make them both longer, since adding a verse would turn this into a full-length song)
Overall, great track. I like the delay of the chime, adds to the beat as if to make it outgoing and friendly, but the tone provides such a dramatic warning. Good song to inspire or add to a pondered thought.
I have been waiting
Way too damn long for this.
Ever since you uploaded your Extended WIP. It feels like a lifetime ago.
Going to purchase now.

This is the real deal.... so refreshing to hear real rap on this site, it's too damn rare. Great mastering, great voices and great beat.
These are the types of reviews I like to see. People that appreciate real hip-hop music. I've been doing it long enough to perfect the craft. It's always good to see people enjoy the music.

Liking that Coldplay sample
I was just listening to that album earlier today.
Excellent mix with it too, makes for a great beat to just spit all over; not too much melody, just the right rhythm.
If you could make this into a song, I would suggest;
- [For the chorus] Pulling a more active sample from that song to use for the chorus, and leaving it more up in the front of the beat so that (for the chorus effect) it isn't so background-ish.
- Mastering/replacing the drums; they sound low-quality and too basic.
- Keeping the beat at the same pace. I just went and listened to your Demo, and didn't like it much.. at all. haha. Too quiet and too slow.
Also, if pulling another sample for the chorus wouldn't work, then perhaps
- [For the verses] leaving in the lower-pitched background violins (the ones that start off the original song), and taking out the sci-fi-sounding ambiance out. That would leave your current sample as a chorus, which would sound amazing.
If you still have the files for this one, or if you can get back on it from scratch, I think it would turn out great. I'm definitely downloading this one in case I ever feel like spitting on it... and of course if I do use it I'll ask you before posting.
Good beat, great to freestyle on, gonna be fun to try writing on.
Amen to that.
HOT DAMN SON.
I got my Turtle Beaches on right now, so when that bass kicked in, you better freakin believe I felt it.
I could feel the major vein in my penis suddenly expanding for a second, too.
LMFAO when the song started playing. Then the verse dropped and it was like, wow, how have I not heard of you before??
4.36 / 5.00 (- 0.028)
I HIT THE WRONG FUCKING BUTTON.... I'll be back tomorrow to 5-bomb it, and I think I owe you another the day after that. This is the shit.
All these fake-ass rappers on NG thinkin they're hot stuff, but their flow and wordplay is so shy, forced and scripted. This is real shit right here, I don't know what else to say about it, I think it speaks for itself.
You got the tone and delivery down like crazy.
I put up new songs whenever I makem so check back every once in a while to hear new stuff. I already have a bunch on here so checkem out if you get a chance and lemme know what you think. the more support the better right?
