Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

wow this is actually really good. I'm surprised only 180 people have heard it, I feel like that's kind of a shame.

Epic, I especially love the work you did with the keyboard as well as the electronic beeps (why can't I remember what their called? oh well)

That was a symphony for the soul and a joy to listen to, thank you very much for the track.

I only wish I were half as good as you.

I hope you make more awesome tracks like this!

Saved, Faved, and Fived.

P.S. If you don't mind me asking what production suite do you use? (Fruity loops? Reason? Other?)

Incredibly articulate review, really appreciate all that! I use FL Studio 10 Producer edition for all of my music, as well as virtual sound tables such as nexus, z3ta+, and sylenth1 for all of the synth sounds that I incorporate. Thanks again for the kind words, hope you have a great day, you certainly made mine!

Wow... Just wow...

That was so many different kinds of epic I just couldn't pick one. You can really feel a story in this song, it doesn't scream it like other songs but it kind of... oh whats the word... pulls you into it to make it your own. (enthralling perhaps?)

It took all of maybe five seconds for me to hear the epic quest of one of my old story-book characters I call Voromier. The song didn't sum up the entire quest... oh no... but it did indeed inspire many idea's, things like the ascension to king, the conquering of a strange sky dimension, perhaps a long walk of shame, to many to type them all right now.

I really enjoyed this piece and I thank you for it. Definitely the best thing I've ever heard on newgrounds so far, especially because of the guitar sounds.

Superb and perfect, wonderful job, and thank you for the inspiration.

I have decided that when I don't really have anything intelligent to come up with as a response to reviews, I shall post (alleged) quotes about space made by famous people. I made sure you get a good one (from Ray Bradbury) because I feel guilty for not really responding to a multi-paragraph review:

"It is good to renew one's wonder, said the philosopher. Space travel has again made children of us all."

Very beautiful and fitting. I'm not very familiar with lullabies (Specifically) but I am familiar with zelda's lullaby, and you did a wonderful job on it. It's even better that the lyrics are appropriate for the game.

I do unfortunately have issues with lullabies (they make me cry idk why they just do) But I did enjoy this one very much.

I hope you make more wonderful songs like this.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it even though it was a lullaby ^_^

I knew checking out the audio portal this week was a good idea.

You really know the way to "Sound Paradise" thanks for the four and a half minute tour. If I ever get the chance I will definitely buy some of your tracks.

I'd put a story to this... But I feel like I'd be insulting its epicness if I tried.

Carried Away {durn} Carried Away {durn}

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Most of what I heard in this track reminded me of space flight, not shuttle flight mind you, but space flight reminiscent of Star Gate Universe, or Battle Star Galactica, perhaps even star wars.

I would say star trek but this reminds me more of a battle relaxation track one would pop in as he departs from his carrier.

Yeah I could dog-fight to this "so" easily.

durn responds:

Haha, man the battle stations, let's kick some space ass! :D Thanks for the review, tac1.

Yes... I've been lurking <.< >.> only 10 days late on this one maybe no one will notice <.< >.>


Anyway, This one was great, has a really trancey sound to it, and its very catchy, reminds me of megaman sewer/underground stages, also oddly reminds me of another old N64 or NES game that I can't remember the name of.

Keep it up durn (btw are you doing this for fun or have you gotten into selling your music yet?)

durn responds:

haha, lurker! :D yeah, a lot of people told me it reminded them of video game background music during the beginning and repeated parts of that.

I do it both for fun and for money. :D All the stuff I release here on newgrounds and other online places are just songs I make to keep myself happy. I get paid to make short background loops for online promotional games. Hence why a lot of my tunes have VG elements to em, it's part of my daily life. :)

Good Job

Awesome as always, had a really vintage/retro sound to it :P do I hear 1985 in there some-where?

Just kidding, the lyrics were a bit sparse but it sounded good over-all, don't be afraid to let your voice ring out unsynthed, (which seems to me what was happening)

Confidence shall be the success of every dream ever dreamed up by any man, woman, or child.

Anyway, The song was great, but I think you held yourself back a bit on this one, use your voice to its full potential! :D

(Try doing karaoke or rock band 2 for a confidence boost)

Sincerely, Lordtac1.

durn responds:

I fail miserably at practicing with karaoke cause I always try to sound like the artist. ;) lol, just need a funkier track to work with and I'll get into it. :D Definitely hear some 80s, can't help it! I am a child of the 80s after all!

Thanks for the review, lordtac. :)

I know...

I know how you feel. Whether your referring to a person, a pet, or even literally a flower.

All things require tender love and care to truly flourish in the harsh environments we ourselves may place them in, Sometimes when we try to give them what we think they need, we can get confused.

whatever that means to you, great job on the song, it sounds beautiful.

Long enough?

Awesome song but do you think it was long enough? I can only think of one other song that's longer then this.

I literally felt myself age while I was listening, haven't felt that in a pretty long time lol.

It does sound pretty awesome, almost like a club trance beat or a background theme for a game or movie.

I can see this being used in many flash's good job on the song and your top 5.

shades90 responds:

Yes, I know, it is WAY too long. The thing is, I always try to add a second progression, but this one was so awesome and kept wanting to add to it, so it got overboard.

I think I said this in the description I am considering cutting out a few of the more repetitive measures which would shorten the song and keep it more varied.

If you go to the soundcloud that i have on my prof, you can leave some comments for suggestions at different parts so i can redo the mix. I actually put a bunch of questions at different points in this song cuz i was unsure about certain aspects.
