Goosebumps! Love the synth melody in this one, gives me such a nostalgic feeling.

This is a soothing, positive energy-giving, mellow tune that sounds like from the eighties. Considering the technicalities, I would say this work is a great achievement in tracking history.

Totally inspired piece of music this. First heard this in early 1997 and its still a favourite tune of mine to this day. Love the key changes and soaring leads. The piano work and percussion are simply excellent too.

This version sounds like an earlier version before Siren corrected a few errors and changed the ending slightly. I've got that version on disk somewhere.

Awesome tracking!

A powerful piano track, a mellow, yet mighty bass, a perfect synth line. This is indeed a gem and a real classic. Alex Brandon, the master of the S3M format. And damn, this is from 1995!!!

An absolute gem, real classic. This is one of the very reasons I wanted to be a tracking wizard myself (never quite got there! oh well :p). The melodies, rhythms, everything about this track is amazing, really captivating, and it's just an S3M, I've heard many mp3's which don't sound nearly as good as this. The leads are amazing, really dreamy and catchy... Excellent stuff!

Very melodic and immersive. This song is like a flight through white, fluffy clouds. I could (and did) listen to it over and over again. Great piano/keyboard work throughout, with key changes and accidentals to keep things interesting. The drum and bass parts are well-written to support the keys. This is one for the collection. This is a lot of MOD file for 365k. I've heard 2mb MODs that don't come close to this one. All the samples are clean and effective. Good use of effects -- just enough, not overdone.
