Good job. I especially like how to song evolves towards the end. Definitely the nicest song in the compo.

Perfect tune for the compo. Well done!

Wonderful harmonies! Great melodies! Very very nice tune!

by NerdN
The midi guitar start is nice. Loud but still nice. A relief to hear some good melodies. I've got a feeling I've heard those patterns before though in a different setting. The end is very good. Dunno about genre, but I hope this one wins. My only 5* in this compo.

Guitar slinger! Yeah. Nice leads, but the breathing thingy and some other elements are slightly annoying. The "ambient" idea seems like having been slapped on as an afterthought. I'd like to hear the real song without the "ambient".

Smooth chillout. If I'd decide, I would have added some more filters to sounds. It's a bit too snappy now to be relaxing and ambiental.

Nice song with scene and a bit of Xerxes influence. I liked it.
4
by Buzzer
Not sure about the sax reverb (delay), but otherwise really nice laidback tune.. tick tock \o/
4
by The_Tubes
great slow song, but it's only ambient at the beginning.
4
by NerdN
Start sounds like title music from a depressing movie/documentary. Crisp sounds. Misses an interesting direction. "just get it over with" feel. Tic tac sounds makes me feel older and the jazz depressed :D
4
by Arktos

by lemonade
Very Xerxes like tune. When the saxophone kicks in this tune really starts taking it's form, but I would have left the melody part that starts in 3:39 to some other song. It totally ruins the mood for me.

My favourite in this compo - much because of the melodies in the last part. So emotional and unconventional for scenemusic. Awesome! And I like the rhytmics throughout the tune.

a bit monotonous until 5 mins but that's definitely not a minus in this compo, especially when the mood really is there. nice "live" solos at the end. 4+

The tune starts to build up nicely and I like the improvised parts in the end of tune, but some parts (like 6:08 - 6:17) sound fake artistic and ruin the listening experience. You need to concentrate into mixing your tunes, it's too silent comparing to other tunes in compo and there's lot's of silence in beginning and end.

Totally ambient and relaxing. It's too repetitive for such a long track though. You need to either spice it up a little or make it a few minutes shorter.

Doesn't require attention, but is even too uninteresting, and... Major Chords, yuck, I don't want to be surrounded by this kind of ambience. Bass is numbing. Fsck the major chords. This makes me angry and stressed, I want to turn this off all the time.

Very ambient. Reminded me of Blade Runner movie music. Five stars for hitting the compo style on the head. Well done!
5
by The_Tubes
YES
5
by lemonade
So damn excellent. These soundscapes hook you up for total 7 minutes and it's all worth it. The ending reminds me of Jarre's Rendez Vous 6. Mostly because of the similar bass drum sequences and pads.

finally real ambient. and great one

OK, this is really a full blooded raw ambient tune. Scary atmosphere and little bit Jarre style in it. Perhaps little bit too long ;)
4
by Mystra
Very very well done. But it might be a bit too focused on sound instead of music, though.
4
by yzi
Works as ambient music, i.e. you can listen to stuff and follow the details, but can also ignore as background. I'm not sure about the break in the middle and the more "cinematic" mood after that

Tortured whales in the beginning of this tune. Whales are sloooow and gives the first clue that this will take a while. Floats away into nothing. Might be true to genre though.

Quite nice, but the melody should maybe have been a bit more interesting, as it is so dominant throughout most of the tune.

There's constantly too much stuff happening in this tune, which doesn't make this tune feel too ambiental. I think this tune might have been better without drums.
