If I had to review this piece of music with only one word, I'd say: "WOW!". This wonderful piece of art is indeed one of the very best S3M's I've ever heard. It's simply perfect from the first second til the end. The title fits in perfectly into the music. When listening to this module, you seem to drift away into another galaxy where all seems peacefully and full of harmony. After a long day of hard work, just turn on your computer and listen to that mod, you won't believe how your body and mind will relax... Don't listen to "Distance" using your old crap headphones, this is for high end amplifiers and expensive speakers. The Zapper writes here that he has done the perfect guitar loops himself. If this is the truth, he has done really excellent work. If you didn't knew that this is a S3M file, you would think that you have turned on your radio, listening to a number 1 chart hit...! The first time I heard "Distance", I wasn't able to move a single muscle; I was so in trance that I even forgot to breath. Then, after the third or fourth time, I turned off my player and only thought: "Wow...". The arrangement never repeats, isn't neither monotonous nor boring for one second and has lots and lots of variations in it. All samples are (naturally for a S3M-Module) in 8-bit, but you will be of the opinion that they were sampled in 16-bit quality. One of the best and outstanding samples is the fretless bass, playing a rich, well arranged bass line with a whole bunch of slides and pitches. Then, I have to mention the extraordinary string samples. The longer you listen to this fantastic track, the more you will love it. It is simply unbelievable that "Distance" only has 12 (twelve!) channels. It sounds like 32 or more channels are in use. The artist has used many effects in a very professional way. Another big pro is the intensive use of stereo / panning effects throughout the whole song. The ONLY negative thing about this tune is that it only runs for 3:22 mins. If it was longer, I would have to give a quick rating of eleven or more :). I don't know how the artist has been able to put so much perfection into a module which is only 393k big. 393 kilobytes! This track could also have been a MP3 file of three or four megabytes, I had believed it! If you miss to download this masterpiece, then nobody can help you anymore. Even if you aren't a fan of guitar and ballad songs, you simply HAVE to download it. THIS is the kind of module that should be uploaded to The Modarchive - technically stunning and musically outstanding. Trust me, have an earful and fly into another world full of wonderful dreams and imagination. You won't regret it...
