"A State of Regret" as this tune is called, starts out in a very soft way with smooth synth/piano sounds and is accompanied with bass. Shortly after some soft drums enter and i am already sure this will be a soft ballad. The two composers have a quite nice tune here, i could imagine this tune in a Danielle Steel movie. Ok, time for some critisism; although this tune is calm and very smooth, i could see some improvements. Maybe the artists could have included some more instruments than just the synth piano for a lead. Maybe (just maybe) they could have created some variation by, for example, introducing a flute. Now this is not really that necessary, because they have utilized the included samples in a good way, it's not like the piano plays through the whole tune like some artists do it. All samples will break at one point and something else is introduced. Like in the middle of the tune, it breaks for an even calmer part with some strings for leads. Then in a soft way it goes back to the "normal" softness, and the bass and drums comes back, including the piano. In this tune i also noted a kind of soft horn which i can not name, i hardly noticed it because it was so well built in to the tune. Now, soft may not really give this tune enough credit, because it is Very soft! Like i said above, i wouldn't be too surprised to find this tune in a movie, because it is really well composed and you hardly notice it is tracked at all. As for the samples, i just mentioned you hardly notice this tune is tracked, and the same goes for the samples. They are well chosen and of high quality. Now this tune is pretty large, and i believe this has to do with the high quality of the samples. Drums, piano, strings, bass - you mention it, all the sounds in this tune are well used. Putting all this together: This is a very soft tune, professionaly made with quality samples. The artists must surely have put a lot of work into this tune, there are many small things which you may not even notice. I can very much recommend this download, especially if you like calm ballades. Great work!
