I was working on my computer then I progressively realized there was this beautiful, light, elegant trance music in the background that I had no idea where it came from. But it was coming from by sound system and therefore from my own computer, how could that be possible! I saw VLC was open and playing it, no idea how it found it, probably searched my HD. I finally remembered that I had saved it on my PC but I had forgotten. Interesting experience! Thanks and congratulation to the composer.

I know my rating is not gonna meet the general agreement... But, this tune has been stuck into my head ever since I've heard it, and I mean stuck.

I've been looking for this one for a while and I've finally found it. This is a masterpiece. This song deserves to be recorded with a real piano and violin. The composition is awesome. At last a real composer! The emotion is so true and beautiful. I'm less kind with the technicalities, the tracking is quite good but not outstanding, but frankly I don't care. So many variations - I like particularly the one of patterns 13 and 14 - and they all fit together, wow.

A poor cover of a poor song anyway, most of it sampled from the original.

I love this chiptune. It's technically perfect as far as I'm concerned. The melody is very humanized, well thought, comes from out there. Only 4 voices, adds to the achievement, but who cares.

I wouldn't say it is by far the best chiptune on modarchive, there are tons of outstanding chiptunes in there, but it may be amongst the best yeah. I really like when I find something that is clear, simple, stays stuck in the head and I want to listen to it again. Pattern 12 and 13 use the classical F-G-A progression which is cheap but falls in place and is not long enough to be boring. Thumbs up.

First, you should check out the high quality version :horizon-highquality. The song is quite beautiful, peaceful, the speeches fall on place but it is way too short, very frustrating somehow, the author could have developed much more.

I listened to the song after a random pick, wondering how a 3/10 can sound. But it's not that bad. It is a minimalist soft house techno. My big complain is when the bass comes together with the organ at 3/4 of the song, beuah... Otherwise that was OK.

By moments the melody really takes me, as I grow older I feels that less and less often, I guess I'm getting used with most existing melodies so it feels really good when that happens.

It's a very funny song and enjoyable but I don't think it deserves a 10, for instance, the drumming is not very impressive. But I'd still recommend it for fun.

It is too dirty sometimes (that fat loop doesn't help obviously) and the scale transposing is cheap. Yet I like it a lot, the melody is really great at moments.

Sort of a compu futuristic electro, it starts very well, but gets too repetitive and boring, and messy by moments. Still not bad, I like the synth filtered sounds simultaneously with the HitOrchestra. Could fit with a Street Of Rage level.

Very old fashion, there is some elements of originality though, it could have been an excellent song, but there are IMO some weird moments, weird musical scale transition at the end of pattern 7, and at the end of the song it fails to be grandiose the way it could have been, this continuously hold choir doesn't make it as far as I'm concerned, especially when the weird scale change occurs and doesn't mix well with the tone of the choir, then the choir goes an octave lower and it's even worse. From pattern 13 to 16 there is a very cool break, but at pattern 18, the re-introduction of the chord synth somehow sounds out of tune, but just a bit. OK, sorry for being so critical... Overall it is rather good mod and I enjoyed it.

Warning, this song is extremely old fashion, the samples are probably over 20 year old, yet it apparently has been made only 2 years ago. It has 6 channels, the result is pretty good, it is very clean and the arrangement is classic but well done. I like the break in pattern 11 and 12, with this old fashion portamento and echo. I personally like it, probably partly due to nostalgia.

My 2 year old son started dancing immediately when I put it. The lead is crazy, the drum on the edge of a jungle mix. Too short but I recommend it.

Interesting nice little chiptune from Michu, too short of course as usual... Kinda crazy, I like that, the transposition of the second part is too cheap IMO but the way the melody gets crazy during that part makes it forgiven. In the last patterns the lead totally gets out of tune in an interesting way reminding me some type of Bulgarian folk music when they get excited over the clarinet.

Really good. Between Vangelis and Enya. I really like how the master tempo is modulated. Simple and beautiful. I know some will think "nah, too simple harmonics, common place, blah blah" but don't be fool, making a song that flows so well is not simple at all. That was great to listen to, thanks man!

It starts very promising but then I got disappointed when the melody lead came it was not exactly in place and then even more disappointed when the transposition occurred (I hate transposition when they are not meaningful, they just disrupt the movement). And then it basically loops until a fade out. It is sad with such a start it could have been an awesome song, I would have imagined something very progressive, building up and so on. There are really good elements though, the pads, the drums, the atmosphere.

This song is not for anyone. It has several interesting parts, it is very crazy at points, would certainly fit some horror video game. It starts rather softly then suddenly turns into a "Tales from the Crypt" hardcore version, then soft and scary, and so on and on. It has its imperfections, at some points it is too "raw" for my taste, but some other parts are quite good. You ought to give it a try.
