It's Ellie Goulding's "Burn".
Something harsh, play it loud, giving love to the world.
We'll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky.

Beautiful melody, evokes imagery of an ancient, perhaps even prehistoric age, but with a slightly futuristic flavor due to the synthesizers in the background. A strange combination that works beautifully in this cse. The lead is a wood flute with a haunting, almost Oriental sound to it that works well for the sustained notes of the melody. Do yourself a favor and lie back in a comfy chair when you listen to it. It's so serene and relaxing that you'll find yourself sighing in no time.

My only complaint is that I like the first part of the song more than the second, so I would deduct half a point for changing in the middle if I could. I'm rounding up because scoring it as a 9 would be an injustice to it.

This is the first of Awesome's Ancient Stories trilogy. More a folk piece than anything, Awesome came up with his first masterpiece (that I know of), with 2 very successful follow-ups. Definitely a unique piece of music for Awesome, the 7+ minutes here work well, with a very subtle part change at 2 minutes that eventually changes the piece around entirely. Imagine flying around a crystal lake and watching nymphs play melodic tunes in the first part, and then hop aboard a camel in the desert for a journey, watching time pass by, riding through villages with past events occurring, until you ride off forever. This song concentrates on flutes, choir chants, and bass. Please refer to my other AWS reviews for more technical info.

   This song has two
  completely different
           parts :
     patterns 00-22 :
" The Fantasy Lake "
     patterns 23-3D :
  " Book of Dreams "
I suppose I could have
   made two different
modules, but they are
the same music really,
 with different point
          of view.
At least, that's what
    I tried. Enjoy it.
