Not alot i can crit on this cept for the fact its such an amazing song with such an amazing album. I bought it almost instantly after the first few songs.

Creds to you and also give my creds to ddrkirby when you can. Fitted the album so well :)

johnfn responds:

Hey, long time no see :D I am glad you are still alive ^_^

I'm glad you liked it. And yeah, if you like this kind of stuff, DDRKirby will be right up your alley (plus, he has tons of tracks out there).

Quite a mouth full of VST's you have there :o

As usual you never cease to impress me and wow me with your heavenly style of electronica. Makes me miss the old days of newgrounds where songs like this were very common. The sort of "Heroic battle" style. But alas, EDM seems to be the thing these days.

My only tiny point is the kick seems a little weak to me. you could probably turn up the lows just a little bit to add more oomph to it but not too much to muddy it out.

Ah yes the job. I actually follow your twitter and i remember reading a very long post from you a long time ago regarding making art over having a high paying job. I do hope it won't entirely kill your motivation at least. Lately...I've been having many moments where i should just quit music all together because i know eventually in the future, i will never have enough time for it unless i make it my career.

Anyway enough rambling, happy late new year man! Hope to see more! :)

I have been fighting with that mix for a while. My friend is going to look over it and try to do a nice mastering job so we might be able to fix it there.

Feels like forever since my last review. Yet it also feels like mere weeks when i heard your old stuff and then suddenly you start pumping out these beautifully orchestrated pieces of work. You're even getting better at me at all places. Mastering, melody composition, sound design, it kind of makes me feel a little meek really when it comes to music :c

Might go ahead join the NGADM. I need to push myself to see if i can improve as i noticed the last one made you so good.

As usual, very good work on this piece. The pianos that start coming in at 2:24 remind me of someone i can't put my finger on but it sounds very cool and unique. The beat for some reason i don't like. It doesn't seem to fit in the song with me but then again i can't really think of any other type of beat that would fit this.

The synths, oh god the synths. I never get tired of hearing those. And the little vibrato at 3:29 is just the icing on the cake.

I have quite a ways before i catch up with you :). So good luck in the NGADM. Who knows, we might even face each other sometime :D


(PS, the reason why im inactive on soundcloud is because ive used up my uploads. so yeah, sorry for being silent on there :c)

johnfn responds:

Ahhhh nice to hear from you again :) It does feel like forever. I'm glad you're still around! :D

You compare yourself to me too much haha. You do good stuff too, it doesn't have to be better or worse necessarily. Music isn't a competition! (Unless it's the NGADM, then it's probably a competition.)

Can't you just delete your oldest songs on soundcloud? That's what I do when I run out of space lol.

Anyway I'm glad to see you're alive. I listened to your latest song and I thought it was pretty cool B-) I really liked the vocal synth!

Super cheery as if i'm going on some adventure or even just simply biking to the store! Melodies were marvelous and i loved the atmosphere in this one.

Also it's not THAT sloppy i'll tell you that :P

johnfn responds:

Yes, the great grocery store adventure! :D

I guess recently I've been listening to a lot of cinematic put together by people way better than me, so I'm kinda nit picky. Glad you liked it!

Hey john,

I know it's been a while but i recently made a soundcloud btw! Also me being horrible at writing reviews and you getting alot better than me, i say this is actually my favorite work from you. That arpeggiated synth at the start gives it this action feel to it while still staying melodic and groovy. The EQ-ing is spot on and the drums are well mixed.

My only complaint is the voice as it seems rather unfitting. Otherwise, nicely done!

johnfn responds:

Duude what's the link to the soundcloud? I can't find you lol. I don't think I'm better than you though, your mixing and sounddesign and all that is still much better than mine.

Thanks for dropping by though, I was worried you had disappeared forever. Will be watching you on soundcloud as soon as I find you ;-)

What reverb do you use btw? I've always wondered? And pianos? They all sound so great! And the strings sound so....uplifting.

Thrixe responds:

I use the reverb plugin that comes with FL, and the piano is edirol orchestral :3 aaaaand the cellos are nexus and the brass thing is edirol

So, first of all, great and awesome song you have here. How long have you been practicing making dubstep?

Second, i can MAYBE volunteer but i know I'm not the best atm. You can see most of my great ones on my channel (See warmech) to judge, but if i'm not good enough, i have friends who might volunteer.

xTronK responds:

Thank you. I've been derping for about 3 years in total but started producing seriously only few months ago. Warmech is pretty good by the way.

Ey boi, welcome to newgrounds where people give bad reviews :B

Thrixe responds:

hehe I will ^^

Better than OOT water temple lol. I can't really find anything wrong with this one so i'm probably gonna leave this at a 5. Also it would be nice if you made a full version of this song :D

johnfn responds:

Haha the OoT water temple is my nightmare.

The truth is that after I wrote the melody I tried for like an hour to write anything nearly as good and eventually realized I couldn't do it. Hence the short loop. ;-)
