You know what they say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! And it looks like Notion has created something that definitely isn’t broken. Almost a year ago Notion wrote a song, had someone with an amazing voice sing for it, and then had an excellent videographer make a video for it; and it was a great success! And he has done it again! This time he has once again enlisted the extremely talented Vylet Pony to perform the vocals. Vylet’s style fits the theme of the piece perfectly and goes well with the synths. This song explores an interesting concept, who protects the protector? Luna protects many dreams from nightmares, but who protects her dreams? It is all tied together by another great PMV created by none other than Jack DC 93. This is a change from Jacks normal style, but it integrates perfectly with the song and its theme. All in all an excellent piece, hopefully we see more in the future!
If you ever wanted to hear a piece that portrays the story of Nightmare Moon in a beautiful way, then here it is! “The Longest Night” is a track in 5 parts, the distinct parts evoke emotions that fit well with the story of the rise and subsequent fall of Luna’s darker side. ThisSideOfOblivion has done an excellent job smoothly progressing this piece through its separate parts. If you are listening for the changes they are noticeable and match the setting very well, but if you are passively listening, the changes won’t be sudden or heavy enough to disrupt the experience. The balance is just right. Well done ThisSideOfOblivion, I’m eager for more!
If I was to make a list of songs that make me feel like I’m away from civilization and relaxing with nature all around me, this song would be one of the first on that list. Sky Runner has done an amazing job of combining the smooth beats with an emotional, natural atmosphere to create a beautiful DnB track. The Flutterchops help refine the already serene arrangement and add a calming depth. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go find a waterfall to fall asleep next to as I let all my problems just Fade Away.
Once again Elias Frost has covered a classic Equestria Girls song, and done an amazing job of it, especially with the guitar work! Keeping with the original theme, the song has a very “Monday morning” feel to it. I can see myself blasting this through my car stereo at the start of the week. The metal adaptation fits really well and Elias has done an excellent job bringing it to life. Well done mate, I’m keen for more!
