My only major point of disagreement with Cooth is on the voice modulation. To my ears, both the high and low voices have been modulated. I would guess that the artificial sound was deliberate and that the exact pitches were chosen specifically to fit. It worked for me, anyway.

The song is a lively synth pop, with a distinct and quite loud rhythm. At the same time the quality of the music is so good that I found myself stamping to the rhythm almost unconsciously. The main melody is really excellent, but it is short and it just comes back several times. The song is therefore somewhat repetitive; however, what is important, it is not boring. I think I would make some variations or one more motif to enrich the tune, nevertheless. The accompaniment is a professional work, indeed! It is rich, interesting and exceptionally pleasant to listen to. The drumbeat is simple, but it works fine, and the fills are pretty cool. Another thing I really liked is the part that begins at about 3:00 - it also doesn't change much, but it is just brilliant! I wasn't really keen on synth pop before, but "Far From Home" is the kind of a song that can alter one's point of view. I was thinking about giving the song 8.5, but the general impression it made on me convinces me it deserves 9. Myvoice is a very skillful musician and this track is a fine work of his. It creates a very positive and nice atmosphere. Really, really kewl! This song is surely worth downloading!! Just click and do it! =) The artist uses 8-bit samples, but they sound very good and it was only when I checked for the song details when I got to know that. They are chosen perfectly, but the most important thing is to put them together to 'squeeze' the best out of them - and Myvoice managed to do it here. What's more, he uses effects thoroughly and with skill. Just the vocal samples are not that good, but it does not disturb much while listening. I also noticed that one of them is played at a lower pitch than originally recorded - it makes it sound rather unnatural. I guess it would be better if it was played a couple of halftones higher. But it's just a detail that doesn't spoil the general impression. Good job!
