The title could just be The Machine, hmm...

Posting from my phone by the way. I'll post opinions on the remaining songs one of these days. :)

It's sort of fun to drop misleading hints though. I had someone ask if All In This Alone is my album's name. Also have been asked about Midori and Who Reigns In Memoriam?.

SunShade in March, Skyward Dreams in April, Leweit in May would be a LIT spring.

I can say with confidence that this is far and away the best thing I've ever created.

Just curious - is the angel fallen because it has a broken wing? :P

I sense a large communal continuity between all of our projects...

We really are going to be having a Floydian Spring!

Also not to worry Silver, I won't be dropping any major projects for a long time. :lol:

Much appreciated. This should be the last thing for a while.

Great news, just got an email from the indie review site Divide and Conquer, and I got approved for a review (which automatically means I'm getting at least a favorable review). If I do the free option I get just a rating in a list, and if I pay $25, I get a full review.

Any money I rack in from my next album is going to go towards funding the $25 that it will cost to get an actual review for that album, assuming they like it -- which they should if they liked this one.

I didn't even know that was a thing, although I don't think I've put out a project that's consistent enough or solid enough for a real review yet. If you can find a way to find applications for soundtrack work that would be nice though, making "albums" and "singles" really just doesn't fit with my way of making music but I don't know how else to go about it really.

I think that I'm going to stick with the free option for this one, and devote the money to the next. This first album was... good, but pales in comparison to what I'm about to put out. In quality, consistency, all of that.

I'm looking forward to it. The musical hype trains never end! Although I think after Project Antipode, my hype train will be pulling into the station and taking a break for a while. Doesn't stop me from being the conductor for other hype trains though; not with Fallen Angel and CABW both coming out in April (probably).

It's time, friends.

An ode to the journey of a lifetime under the wing of the person I want to spend that lifetime with: Flight with a Fallen Angel.

I'm off to bandcamp, take care!

Thanks, I really appreciate that! I knew far before my flight what my theme was going to be and made sure to take way too many pictures to find one to use.

Also, for those not fluent in Japanese (I'm not either, did some research for this), the Japanese on the wing says "Fallen Angel"

I gave the album a listen once but didn't make it all the way through, and I've just been completely fucked in terms of scheduling so I haven't finished it yet. Very positive feelings so far though!
