Positive Comments: The boldness of this electronic track took me to a dark world of big dark things and big bold rumblings – indicative a black hole or time warp perhaps. Where was I? Oh yeah, I’m in this time warp you see … and I can see visions of smoke and fires in the distance as if shorelines of old have been destroyed in a war of epic proportions perhaps. A beastly orange sunset lights the backdrop. There’s a warped musical cataclysm in this piece that stamps out any lightness or hope of being and into a dark underworld of scenes beyond dark mysteries. The dark taunts, the drums, the percussion, the fine tuning in equalization in this piece is to be reckoned with if you’re one of these super heroes that’s going to save us all from this time warp!

Constructive Comments: I liked the easy intro to set the environment for the listener. It beckons appropriately. The slight echoes create a nice mystery. I like the slow building and a slight lonely violin? Hmmm… 🙂 I like the constant changing while maintaining a sense of light but dark mystery and then that big entrance. NICELY DONE. And the dark taunts that follow in the dark echo mixing – nice. I liked the warp rumble in the stereo cabinets. Cool die down the 3 minute mark. And here we go again. I love those haunting echoes in the back mixed with the light string section – frickin’ awesome. And love the intro again with the drums. The rest is all spot on and mixed well and nice filling of the sound field. From there on in the the track it seems a tad long, but if this was for a media of some kind – it could be a long scene. Those horn echoes towards the end are very cool and again the warp rumble. I loved the ending! Have a super duper new year.
