Oh my god....

Dude, this wins the internet!!!

I don't think I can really call this a real review seeing as I have no experience in the art of making professional sounding music to tell you what you might need to hear, So instead let me tell you a story.

Many months ago I forgot my password for my account here on newgrounds. And since I'm a super lazy person, I've been going around the audio portal listening to songs without my account, and seeing if I can put them in my game I'm making for a project at my school. SO I've been roaming around and trying to pick rarely heard, totally different, electronic type songs to put in my game. And all the while I was looking I was debating with myself on whether or not I should put my game up here on newgrounds. So I found a couple songs that nobody's heard before and I put them in my game. However then I came to the level in my game where you have to defeat the boss in a race. And after every song I've heard before yours I just didn't think they were "racing-ful" enough.

So then I see your song in the results and honestly I thought that this was gonna be another song with an exciting mysterious name just to grab peoples attention, so they can listen to it and whatnot. But I plugged in my headphones and clicked on it anyway.

And man......I WAS TOTALLY BLOWN THE FAWK AWAY.

I just love this song!!! I adore the piano part, and the melody, and those cymbal like crashes in some parts. I mean seriously I just think it was that awesome and pwnageful!!!

I haven't heard your song Speeding Through Infinity, though I'm sure that this is waaaaaaaaay better.

Any song that can make me go back through all my 2000+ emails to find the email from newgrounds that has my password enclosed, come back here to newgrounds, log in, type up a comment this long (even though I have no music making experience AT ALL), give it 10 stars, save it into my favorites, vote a 5 on it, download it in order to put it into my first game I've ever created for my school prgramming project that counts for a major part of my whole grade in that class for the final quarter, AND help me decide that I WILL upload my game onto newgrounds when I finally finish, just to give official credit to all these awesome songs I've used, AND all the while not caring how n00by or how much of a suck-up I probably sound typing this up right now, or how this could be marked as a useless review,

Is a song of supreme awesomeness that deserves to be recognized as such.

W-O-W.

I've never seen such an awesome and supportive review in my life O.O... I seriously don't think there's any possible way to thank you enough... I mean, I'm no professional producer, far from it, and getting a review as supportive as this is quite a big achievement for me. Thanks a LOT :D.

"I don't think I can really call this a real review seeing as I have no experience in the art of making professional sounding music to tell you what you might need to hear."

Firstly, I really don't mind at all if you have musical experience or not. I'm actually really surprised you actually made a review this big without any musical experience, so thanks for that.

"However then I came to the level in my game where you have to defeat the boss in a race. And after every song I've heard before yours I just didn't think they were "racing-ful" enough."

This song wasn't actually intended to be race-like. I named the first one 'Speeding Through Infinity' since after finishing it (it was my first Trance song) I thought it reminded me of Space, although Space seems a bit like a lame word to use in a title, so I decided to try out Infinity.

I liked the sound of it, but the title 'Infinity' was too clich� and overused, so I added Speeding Through Infinity. Then, for this song, I just found a synonym for 'Speeding' and 'Infinity' and replaced the words :P. Technically, I only thought of 'Speeding' (which led me to think of 'Racing') because I didn't want the title to be 'Infinity' on its own xD. Although I'm glad it sounds 'racey' enough, that's for sure :P.

"I just love this song!!! I adore the piano part, and the melody, and those cymbal like crashes in some parts. I mean seriously I just think it was that awesome and pwnageful!!!"

Glad you like the song :). The piano part was something I added because I enjoy adding piano to my trance songs, and the melody was me messing around with an arp and thinking 'Oh hey, this sounds cool'. The things which are similar to cymbal crashes are probably the sweeps I added. Those are filtered white noise :D.

"I haven't heard your song Speeding Through Infinity, though I'm sure that this is waaaaaaaaay better."

Yeah, you're right :P. Speeding Through Infinity sounds really bad now that I look back to it, although I don't think I achieved as much of a good atmosphere in the intro in this one as I did in that one. Probably because I used a slightly detuned dance-like saw in the intro which doesn't provide such a good atmosphere, and there I used a cross between a multisaw and a square wave which sounds a bit deeper. Alright you probably have no idea what I'm talking about so I'll stop right about now...

Although yeah, I think this one's way better.

I'm feeling sorry because I made you do all that, and amazed that my song had such an impact O.O. Thanks, I suppose :D.

Well, thanks for the really epic review. Out of the 100's of reviews I received, this is probably my favourite from them all. Yeah, now I'm probably sounding like a suck-up too, but I mean it xD. THANKS FOR THE REVIEW!
