I can only sit in awe as I listen to this creation... you can truly imagine the story and feel the instruments penetrating your heart. The presentation is so, so nice.

There are a few areas that sound like they were mixed a bit awkwardly, but they don't hold back the mastery and beauty this piece exudes.

Stadler responds:

Wow, thanks for the amazing response! I double-thank you for also showing where I could use improvement. I'm still trying to figure out how to make it sound like a real orchestra. I find the mixing/mastering to be much more difficult than the writing itself. It will come with experience though, I hope! If you or anyone else reading this has any detailed suggestions, I'd be glad to hear you out!

I'm really happy you enjoyed it. Keep on listening!

There are a lot of little gems hidden inside this song's melody and it's mixed really well imo! (But what authority do I have on mixing? Less than zero, probably.)
The middle part where it becomes less happy and makes heavier use of minor chords/melody sounds REALLY nice.
Something you probably recognize is that the song ends rather abruptly. Recently, I've been trying to either get rid of those or wrap them so it loops nicely -- it's better if someone else considers using your music for a submission. (which I understand happened to you on this piece! Congratulations!)

Frankly, your style is very addicting to my ears. Now I feel like sifting through your entire collection again!

OpenLight responds:

Glad to hear from you! I appreciate what you said in your review. Hopefully, I can start putting out more music soon!

I love your style.

pftq responds:


Genuinely sweet af. I love this to death.

PhatBoiJ responds:

Thanks man!

Wow, I love the reverb and how the song builds up. At 0:20, the bass melody that just halted everything else gave off a really badass vibe... this song is an amazing work. I love it!

There is really no criticism that can be given, other than that it's not perfectly tailored for a video game scenario because the level of energy it gives off fluctuates throughout the song. But I can still imagine it in a game quite well, even as I say that!

Coffee-Break responds:

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it. :)

Your style is admirable. It's always there and your touch is easy to pick up, but at the same time you can try new things out and capture different feelings. Each of your songs are melody-intensive, but they work so well because the melodies are spectacular.

For being a typical OpenLight song, this piece is hereby awarded 10/10.

And it *does* inspire Hope.

OpenLight responds:

Sorry for taking so long to respond. I'm always excited to see a review from you! This song is old though, so hopefully I can get back to this point.

As expected of Waterflame, this complex remix is just irresistably catchy. Great work!

Waterflame responds:

Thank you! :)

Sigh... it must have been over a year since I've rated one of your pieces. Well, OpenLight, it's been a while. Just going to say a few things about this.

It's pretty amazing how fluent this is compared to things that you've done in the past. From the resonance of the piano to the minimalist drums, it all just seems less rigid and more like a steady stream. I also noticed that you included some tunes, styles, and rhythms from past works. (I was surprised to find some parts of my Passion remix buried within the beginning. Maybe you did that subconciously?)

You've become so much greater of a composer since 2010, when I was first viewing your music. An arguable thing is that the drum came in a bit suddenly in 1:10, but it's cool because a rhythm was already established. However, I'm not sure this would be very fitting of a game. I don't know much about Battleblock Theater, so maybe I'm wrong.

I think you overlooked this because, the more you listen to this, the less slow it feels, but for people listening so intently for the first time, it's a bit too slow for a game. That's the only reason you didn't get a 5-star rating.

I'm definitely going to download and loop this music. It really is exceptional; something that can easily be compared to the top weekly audio. I hope this review could do your piece justice.


OpenLight responds:

I was psyched to see that I got a review from you. Of course, thanks to the new site design, it's harder for me to figure out when people review my songs, which sucks, so I just now saw this.

Thanks for the review! I'm always improving I feel, and that comes at the price of songs being harder and harder to finish. I'm glad you liked this song though! And yeah, I was pretty much just trying to get in BBT in whatever way possible since The Behemoth is AWESOME.

I'll keep in mind everything you said. Thanks!

I agree.

This song is not so much for robots. It sounds actually very heartfelt, and could be background music for a game or something (IDK.) But yeah, not really suitable for Robot Day. I really like it, though! If only I could get out of my stupid writers block :/

9/10 because I love what you did with the drums. Keep it up!

Atundra responds:

Thanks man! Good luck with your writers block xD

I love Canon :D

That aside, this is really good! Sometimes, you look at a song, admire it and look at it from every angle, and decide that it would make a REALLY epic remix. You could have added a better drum beat in my opinion, but otherwise, it's great. Like ThePal said, there needs to be more change.

DjClyme responds:

like my previous song, i intended this to be somewhat repetitive, just not to the point of being obnoxious. thanks for yet again, reviewing another one of my songs! I'm really glad you liked it. :)
