Good stuff by Cyclone, I have this for a very long time in my playlist now and I still like it. It's nice how the tracks builds up and develops and the guitar kicks in. The guitar needs a bit more realism maybe, but I'm happy without much realism anyway. :)
Be sure to listen to the subtunes as well!

Very good piece, as the review also states (review? that's just a descriptive text, not a review!) so anyway, yes, nicly laid track and indeed well made - both musically and technically. Couldn't but help notice the Tubular Bells 2 (Sentinel) piece stuck in at around 3 minutes in :P

GREAT! fades in w/ a synths single note, then it softly lays the chords, w/ a funk bass coming in after a couple of chords, w/ a steady from, with popping for you who care. Then a hihat comes in, pumping 16s, and an electric guitar giving the melodie. Then the drums gain more, w/ snares, bass drums and toms, and for it all, for a while, changing synth sound, then coming alive, w/a more steady, complete drums rythm, after a while an 2nd guitar comes in, laying the chords, with a riff build upp. In the middle, theres a sort of chord change, but nothing drastic. It ends sort of the way it began, where nicely, tieing things up, w/ a the bass giving it's regualr form, a last hit. Then another part comes in, wich doesn't feel at all like it's supposed to be w/ the previous, or maybe it is. It's darker but sort of like the previous bit in structure. It has a synth in the beginning, but w / a steady hihat, counting. and a bass guitar "funking about". Then an electric guitar comes in and mutes a couple of notes to later on open upp etc. A synth is making ambience in the background that builds it all up, but I on't want to makes this review to an entire book, so I'll just say "download and listen" I'm worn out from the music description, som sorry in advance for missing things... What makes this song stand out is that it's ambience is great, very good building there, and you just want to keep listening. It's a different build up from what you usually see around here... since modarchive is very common w/ tons of dull build ups, and all to common pale songs. This is a Beautiful exeption. I'm looking forward to find anything more with this guy, brilliant.

                                I've spent more time on this
                                tune than on any previous one,
                                so I really hope you like it.
                                I just love those gradual
                                transitions.

                Music:
                ______

                I often get asked to write music for
                games and demos. Keep in mind that
                I only work for free if the project
                is non-profit.

                I currently only release about 4 or 5
                tunes per year. Writing more music than
                this would require taking time off work,
                so please don't ask me for a large number
                of tunes unless you are willing to pay
                for them.



---------------------------------------------------------------

A fraction of time,
Silence in the moonlight,
Two golden memories,
An instant then gone.

I sit on a hillside,
watching stalks of grass glow in the dim blue light.

A liquid flows over the unreal surface,
pressing my thoughts back along the path I've travelled.

I yield and float backward,
forgetting that I've always been here.

-   -   -

A blink or a flash,
An image frozen on the retina,
The detail is suddenly clear,
Ironic, now that it's too late.

Watch how the field changes subtly as the wind blows.
Memories.

Watch how the old oak cracks the horizon with its black
silhouette. I'd rather forget.

Don't try to stop the scene from changing.
It never obeys.

-   -   -

A gentle wind blows,
The liquid grass flows,
Stalks bend and sway,
The surface moves subtly and permanently,
And the memory is lost forever.
