Firstly, I don't think this should be labeled as ambient - sounds more like industrial to me. Has a very mechanized beat to it; repetitive and concrete - much like a machine yet later displays a more a subtle calmed tone as if a product of sorts has been made or a conclusion from events has been drawn. Still I think it's very interesting and I think it could be used to depict the concept of a hunt. The intro seems.... blunt though; too direct with percussion and could have had better transition but that's just what I think. It's your song. Anyway, It's pretty good. It's got a certain intensity to it's tune and I like it.
This could have been something epic and to know it won't be finished... hurts.
I'm if-y about the beginning, the music is good, but what's throwing me off about it is the fuzzy echo at 0:00-0:50. How the track starts with it I just found bizarre. But where it is in the rest of the song, it seems fitting in the song, but I can understand how it fits with the story a little. I also find the part at 6:24 to the end confusing. It's good, but I'm not sure how exactly it fits with the story. But I'm not an expert on ambient music and don't have an in-depth sense to it so I suppose it only natural I can't see it. Still though I like how strenuous you've made it sound, it as if you can hear the caution being taken in the story.
The rest of the song is just beautiful and one of the most entrancing pieces of music I've ever heard, I just love that. And for the most part (in my opinion) it depicts the story flawlessly. Just listening to this makes me wonder if a day will ever come when humans do discover another inhabitable world like Earth, that would be a very exciting feet for mankind.
I wonder if this will ever get animated... that would be interesting to see.
It seems to me sometimes that some stories just beg to be animated in a near future. xD
Although I'm confused on what unsettled you at the beginning (either the white noise or the radio tuning noise), I respect your opinion and I'm grateful for your lengthy review. :D
Even if I think that the break right at the beginning of the last theme was needed in order to set another "dreamy" or "exotic" texture, I can understand if it sounds probably a bit rushed or unpolished.
Thanks again, buddy :)
Black coffee eh?
I don't drink coffee...
This is very out of the ordinary in comparison to the dubstep I typically come across, its relatively more calm. Its interesting to me how you've managed to use the idea of coffee as a basis for a song, its very creative and yes - probably very original. You got a nice musical flow going here. My only problem is repetitiveness in the first half. I was expecting some more interesting pattern variety as I listened to it. Still though, you've done an awesome job with the sound choice and usage. Its a nice piece overall.

Between you and me I like my coffee creamy and more on the sweet side haha.
I'm pretty sure this qualifies as trance.
The intro startled me a little, but that's ok - I liked it. The Xylphone sounds a little off pitch to me, it doesn't quite fit with the other patterns of the of the song. But this is still a very bright piece of music, alot of energy in this piece. Yes... it does get repetitive after awhile, but it kinda has a loop to it, which contributes to the fact that this does have a bit a flash potential. You might be able to add on to this if you so choose, if you do though - I recommend trying to give it more instrumental variety. It might help with the repetitiveness.
Overall though, nicely done.

Haha I couldn't think of the right genre for the life of me, so thank you for finally clearing that up for me. I'm open for the idea of adding to this song, and I would definitely add a few more instruments into the mix to keep it interesting. I'm glad you like the track too, because this is my best work by far. Thank you for your review!
The intro has a really nice interesting buildup, I like how you've given this piece a very exotic sound. After about one third of the song though, I start thinking that this is more like a dubstep. But you've blended that incredibly well into this song. I found the rattling an odd way to end the song, but that's really the only thing that bothers me about this. The rest of this is really awesome. Virtually flawless in every other musical sense.

Thanks so much Xenophaje!
I really wanted to incorporate a cool Dubstep break into Mr. Fiji's already great house climax to go for an almost "Feed Me" style track.
I'm really glad you enjoyed my trippy spacy buildup as well.
Thanks again, I really appreciate your review!
Its been quite a long time since I've heard classical music this serene and beautiful. I was actually starting to believe such talent had died out on NG, but seeing this proves me wrong.
Tones and pitch are flawless, the slow subtle transitioning is flawless, the melody is simply the most beautiful sound in classical music that I've heard in a good couple of years. Despite its slightly repetitive sound usage, the soothing sound of this - with the help of the excellent transitioning - completely makes up for it.
Just listening to this leads me to believe you are a musical genius when it comes to classic, that said - I hope to see more from you.
Really glad you liked it so much. I was worried the melodic material would feel mendearing, so hearing your feedback means a lot!
Metropolis gone bad
Its awesome, there is absolutely nothing I don't like about this piece. If I ever make a game, I'd probably end up using this at some point. (to bad I don't know how to make games)
Thank you !
I think I can actually hear the difference
The voice from A New Hope sounds slightly more grainy then that in the other movies... or I'm just imagining. Either way, your do an awesome Darth Vader.
Its a good place to start
As is I find its sound very repetitive, even for a loop. I feel like you could build a tension to this and make it an interesting song. I find it very generic, why not try adding to it? I think you should try adding some type of instrumental buildup at the very least. The instruments do seem decently picked for this piece though, as is it does have some potential in a flash video. But I think you could turn it into some thing greater, and more exciting, possibly epic.
