A melancholy theme for the rainy city level. You escape here right after your home is destroyed, and start to realize the world is bigger than you thought.
This is a consistent favourite among my friends, so I would really appreciate a larger audience giving me some good criticism on how to improve it. The mix has been giving me a tonne of trouble in particular. The silvery highs strike me as integral to the sonic emotion (lower case S) and they sound great on my AKG headphones, but they're shrill and difficult to tolerate on most speakers I've tested. What am I doing wrong?
This one also suffers significantly more from the conversion to MP3 than some of the others. Maybe the loss of clarity is more apparent in something downbeat.
Extended version involving a bridge section incoming soonish. I've also rewritten some of the chords since then.
