This is creative, unique module composition at its best. A real gem, it starts out with an utterly original bass line and it just gets better from there. Just listen! :)

Ecstatic feeling chiptune with great melodies which float on top of chords, harmonize with other melodies or disappear for slow arpeggios to take their place. Awesome tune, this made my night.

The synths start up with atmospheric melodies and play until the chords come in, and then the drums, and then melodies play with different samples over the chords. After a while a short synth plays in background and the drums punctuate the synths in patterns, and then start playing off of each other until a crescendo is reached, which then opens up to a more syntheval-sounding section with synth strings, which plays until the drums and chords come in. Then various melodies using various more samples play over the chord progressions. A more futuristic atmosphere then builds up in the next part.

Throughout the MOD, basic synths are used with enough elan to excuse their primitivity. This song’s atmosphere is built upon the arrangement of notes, chords, and rhythms. Considering that timbre is the easiest to create an atmosphere with, it could be said that 4mat really took the path less travelled and put a lot of effort into using other means to create atmosphere than timbre.

Some tracks have a tendency to create an ambiance, and then remain in it for way too long. Such is not the case with this track; there is change, flux within the atmosphere. Considering it's length, at twelve and a half minutes, this is an accomplishment. This track encapsulates dynamics within a singular flowing atmosphere. You never feel like a part has been grafted on from another track. There is a unity to all that is going on.

This track is in short, excellently composed, and I highly recommend it.

This is just a really good track. It really does convey a sense of cosmic awe. The way the sounds are layered and build up and then release tension is very effective. The samples are very well chosen and used. I've listened to this track on loop quite a few times and its always a pleasure.

This module is very long, with a slower middle, but does express sadness and madness well. It's also unique sounding, which is a plus.

This module has a good atmosphere, using arpeggiated resonant bass samples effectively. I liked it so much I listened to it again after it was over. The feeling this S3M gives is one of emotional heaviness, but not oppressiveness. It's good, so I recommend it!

Listening to this I was impressed by the level of emotional intensity conveyed by the leads, such as one might expect from someone playing a live instrument who is really in tune with his emotions.

A sublime sounding track...I can hear some of the artist's more recent experiments coalesced into a more satisfying whole. A compositional accomplishment...I love it!

I really enjoyed this song. You really have a knack for beautiful jazz melodies and conveying an idea into music. And I know what its like to have only a computer as a friend...it's like, computers don't make the same mistakes that humans do, so you get used to not having human mistakes around. So you judge yourself, like you should be a robot hehe...or at least I do :) I thought about that when I was listening to your song.

The world should not miss this unique sounding module...and also take note of the technique of using drums for emphasis, instead of as a droning beat which most music today uses.
Truly the melody in this is different sounding, in a most interesting way. I can not come up with anything that sounds like this out of all the music I've listened to. It begs to be heard!

Pure melody and harmony floating on emptiness. This is a way of saying there are no drums in the nicest way I can think of, but that's good because I like compositons that aren't fettered by drumbeats. The composer uses a sample tuned, if I understand, a quarter step up from the original sample. So this would qualify as a microtonal composition, which is pretty interesting! The melody and harmony seem to have something to say...I'll be listening to this more times in the future.

Sounds like its name. I imagine a prayer in the air floating through the sky and then piercing the veil of this world as it comes closer to God. Very atmospheric, it sets ones heart in a good place to listen to it.

Giving a late 10 out of 10 to a module that richly deserves it. This module's melody, harmony, and general aesthetic are a stroke of genius. It sounds like an old jazz piece, and by that I mean it really sounds like an old jazz piece, not like a module trying to sound like one. Like most of this artist's work, it is evocative of its theme and leaves a very good feeling in your heart after it's listened to. I have become something of a fanboy of this artist as of late, but you can trust me, it is really good! Listen to his other stuff too, don't let a bright star fade into obscurity!
