Lonesome October Nights $1.00
Publisher: Bailey Records
by Shane O. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 09/13/2006 00:00:00
Lonesome October Nights is a single MP3 by Bailey Records. It comes in a zipped file, 3.12 megabytes in size. The zipped file contains not only the MP3, but also three PDFs and a Microsoft Word document. Each of the PDFs is a single-page advertisement for Bailey Records material. The Microsoft Word document, in contrast, is a single page telling you about the CD this MP3 is from, gives the credits and some links to related material, and a bit of background on how the music came to be.

Lonesome October Nights is ninety seconds long, and is meant to be used for horror-style games. There are no lyrics, since this is meant to be background music. The track opens with a cacophony of strange sounds, which then leads into a subtle ambience that does a good job of evoking a lonely road at night. Towards the end, the cacophony from the beginning starts to rise again before all of the music slowly fades to a close.

While this single track is good unto itself, it comes across as feeling somewhat incomplete. The rising ambience of the main part of the music does a good job of establishing a feeling of isolation, and possibly even of a lurking horror, but it has no follow up to that. While perhaps on its original CD it was followed by more music that worked on the implications laid on this track, Lonesome October Nights doesn?t work quite as well in a vacuum. This is a good song to play to establish a fearful atmosphere, but be prepared to have more to follow up on it. It takes more than a lonely night to scare PCs, after all.




LIKED: The music does a good job of evoking feelings of being isolated in a spooky area.

DISLIKED: By itself, the music can be spooky, but doesn't try to be more than that. This track needs further music to cash in on the foundations it lays.

QUALITY: Very Good

VALUE: Satisfied
