Hi, it seems you have brought my out of my forum stalking and have encouraged me to post
... Due to the amazingness of your songs of course.
Honestly I think you are a great composer, I namely enjoy Lancon's theme and Lightning storm. Lightning storm took me by surprise, it was the second song I listened to of yours and I was just causually listening. As the song progresses it seems to really take hold of you, at first there's this (sort of, not really, but kinda) slow escalation into the song. It's so subtle that you don't realize the song is about to draw you into its "main course" (I need to think of better terminologies). One the piano hits it ties in so well with the rest of the sounds, don't really know how to describe it but I found it amazing.
Lancon's theme is perhaps my favorite. Mainly due to the fact that you really built it upon the character, the whole song embodies that character. It covers both his sorrows while releasing the monstrous rage inside of him. What I really liked about this is how it toned back down at the end, the way the song switched from one point to another just meshed so well. You did very well at transitioning those two parts and keeping the theme in the song. And toning it down like that.... Wow it just brought so much more CHARACTER to the dev's already made character. Honestly this song made me feel those emotions, even at the end, with the piano it made me feel helpless in a way. Almost as if that his revenge has been sought out and his rage dies he can no longer push back the feelings of loosing his friend and no matter what he does he can never bring him back (thus that feeling of helplessness). Even the parts that are suppose to depict his sorrow contain so much intensity (something I really liked about it) There was a part in the song about 1 minute in, when we had gotton to Lancon's 'rage'. Where the song drops I guess? (told you I need better teminology) It's probably only for a second but its amazing, cause it jumps straight back into it. There's just so much FEELINGS put into this song! Wow I didn't expect to go on this long of a review about it. But truth be told this is one of my favorite peices of yours I've heard so far. This is the type of song that someone hears in a game and downloads it later to listen to contantly on their MP3 player. Professional grade, definitely.
Now that being said there are a few songs that I'm not too incredibly fond of (Wasn't too big in Sundown) but for the most part I really enjoy your songs. Can't wait to hear more
