So Much Left to See is exactly as amazing as you would expect from someone who has been a big part of so many fandom hits over the years, featuring incredibly beautiful vocals and a gorgeous acoustic guitar. The track is a love song between Derpy and Doctor Whooves with Splash singing of how much better things are for the ponies to be together. It is difficult to listen to just once and that’s a fantastic quality to have in a song.
Even when he’s working on something completely different from his usual metal styles, everything Osoch touches is gold! Pleasant Chill is everything the title claims and more. The song begins with a captivating intro and great bass line with mood setting pianos.

Featuring excellent acoustic guitar work throughout, I’m the Draconequus is a mellow rock track, but not without group vocals and an accompanying violin that add the necessary chaos into the song.If you like some southern rock, country pop, or just some general chaos, then make sure to click on this video!
Fresh from the newest Ponies at Dawn album, Soren Ember brings us the touching tribute to Rainbow Dash.

The track is beautiful and somber at the same time, a very satisfying piece for listening!
Spectra is back and as good as ever with his beautifully touching contribution to the newest Ponies at Dawn compilation album, Rebirth.

The reminiscence and emotion in his voice combined with the gorgeous acoustic elements mix intensely to create an incredible, solastalgic track – perfect for a rainy day!
The landscape begins rushing by seemingly never-ending and full of vistas each more epic than the last. In the Magical Land takes you on a grand journey through the fantastical land of Equestria by gently inviting your gaze toward a simple landscape, gradually guiding you into increasingly epic sights and experiences, and finally allowing you to settle down in a peaceful field to take it all in. This piece by AndNoOneDriving is a wonderful musical portrait that may even enhance one’s personal image of just how beautiful Equestria could be.

4everfreebrony has re-recorded his classic Stay, and does an absolutely beautiful job. His vocals are brimming with emotion and longing, and the instrumentation is simple but powerful.
As a wonderful surprise, Osoch deviates from his heavier material and brings us a very beautiful track of hope and inspiration. Inspired by the Fallout Equestria universe, Heal the Soul is a prime example of how to make a song build up with energy – starting with soft, emptiness and ambiance, growing to a very satisfying, moving chorus, and then expertly switching back to build again. Osoch sings of the many difficult trials ahead and the better days to follow, utilizing brilliant harmonies and epic backing instrumentals along the way.
An incredible new version of the original Lachryphagy, this Acoustic Mix focuses on expressing the mixed feelings you have when you realize the changeling’s right to simply feed themselves and follow their nature. Originally seen as villains, you start accepting them and feeling for them, thus offering them comfort and understanding, a warm lapse of solace in all the antagonism. And this track reflects that blissful time and those heart-warming feelings to perfection. Soft drums, bittersweet acoustic guitars, pure-hearted synths, and a switch to a divine part including an electric guitar solo, all convey so much emotion and match the concept in incredible beauty, proving once again eksoka’s incredible talent and vision like none other.
It was bound to happen at some point. Overall it doesn’t spoil the movie that much, but better safe than sorry, eh? Check out the song after the break.
