The series finale feels continue with a melancholy-themed track from the new collaborative album, “The Rest of Our Lives”. Replacer has put on an interesting and unique performance to try to express some of the fandom’s struggles of the “Friendship is Magic” book being closed. The lyrics and vocals are eerie, and they reflect the struggles of many bronies after watching the finale (with the use of a vocoder) to give the message of bronies feeling lost with no more gen 4. The calm piano is so effective and gorgeous in telling this story. You really need to hear this for yourself. It may not be for everyone. Regardless, its message is powerful. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
Not just crafting an emotional Orchestral composition reminiscent of Lullaby For A Princess, RedSpark also contributed with his own vocals to the song and it adds a lot! Enacting the heavy dialogue between the two sisters during that fateful moment in time, the piece makes for an amazing and heartfelt tribute, and RedSpark definitely did wonderful!
Evershade takes us to The World Above with this very cuddly song starring their cute vocals! Very Equestrian for sure, the mellow track feels like a warm hug, or like rolling in the fluffy clouds in the sky. With friends in our heart it’s even better, I’m sure thinking about everypony I love so much while listening to this song and escaping in that comfy place!
Spicy titles aside, this new release by the talented Rarity Advocate is actually very fuzzy as it brings so much love in musical form! The “spring” vibes of the song, with the “rebirth” aspect of it perhaps represented by Philomena here, are completed wonderfully by sampling of vocals from Winter Wrap Up, and listening to this feels like trotting in Equestria on a first day of spring!
Studio Quinn made such a lovely tribute to Discord’s character depth, accompanied by a fitting artwork by JustKat! The vocals sung in Discord’s perspective will make you sympathize for his struggles, and the Discord quotes in the video will remind you just how deep of a character he was always meant to be in the show!
Originally pre-released on VibePoniez, this beauty part of The Rest of Our Lives is starring Evdog’s charismatic vocals, singing about the impact that the Magic of Friendship had on our lives. With loving references to ponies in the lyrics, and such an emotional instrumental completing the vocals so well, it is one of the many tributes included in the compilation album!
Hot off the new compilation album The Rest of Our Lives, Direct Current and Evdog really plant one in the feels with Redshift. The sound design and ambiance in this track are incredible. The depth of the instrumental feels like it is coming from another dimension and time. The vocals are heavily processed to really give it a feel that feeling of being something beyond this world. Lyrically the vocals sing about great friendships and memories past and how that time lives on to strengthen us as we venture into the unknown of the future. Slowly paced to really savor the nostalgic emotion, you really get the opportunity to feel all the warm, uplifting, and even somber melodies that come from an incredibly well-crafted song.
All proceeds from The Rest of Our Lives album will go towards the Brony Thank You Fund, which is currently providing supplies to mask makers during the COVID-19 outbreak. Any contribution helps and the album is packed-full with incredible tunes and talent!
The opener track of the new tribute compilation album The Rest of Our Lives is itself a tribute to And the Rainfall and works as a spiritual successor to the song Tulips! There’s just so much heart poured in this breathtaking piece of more than 7 minutes and you can feel the love from all of the musicians who contributed, in both the music and the video that I recommend watching along the song! With deep quotes and Background Pony inspiration, sweet feelings giving birth to creative musical endeavors, and meaningful visuals, this masterpiece and joint effort is certainly a timeless gem!
Long live Prog! Rinnie expanded on Lunar Drift’s love of the genre by covering Chaos & Harmony themed around Discord, and this new interpretation is presenting new progressive wonders and ideas that certainly would make the God of Chaos proud. So glad that Rinnie is covering other brony songs in addition to show songs!!
Ah imagination. Without it in childhood, could a lot of people create in their older years? This wonderful track 25, on P@D: Ignite. It’s really is like a soft dream that reminds you of those soft rock songs of the 60’s and 70’s. Where you drifted in and out of your own imagination. The lyrics done here by Replacer tells of a young Pegsai colt that likes to dream and make his own worlds and characters. Real life mirrors this for all of us. Being that strange kid that went out into the woods and fields and played pretend all by himself for hours. The song tells this story so well. It’s so wonderful. In full circle, this show we love is a world of make believe that had inspired so much creativity. As always, this Qilin asks you to judge for yourself.
