[Music] Thoughs on the tracks
Labs track(mus6): I think it has a bit too much of these noises in the first 1.5 minutes, some are way too stretched. And the part from 1:30 is incredibly nice, at times still gives me goosebumps. What about shortening the noises in favor of extending the things like in the ending of the track?

Palace trac(mus6): also full of noises, I believe previous levels have enough of these tense noise stretchy stuff, what about adding more melodic moments?
I thought it could be some medieval theme with your own approach, of course. It's a palace, why not medieval? Or just something more melodic =)

Ambient 103 for you know what. I believe the original track is very good and doesn't need any ambiance, plus it is different from the rest of the set. I think ambient sounds add unneccessary noise that doesn't fit. Not to be rude.
Also can we get lyrics for the song, please? And is it fully in English or some is in the invented language, because I can't often get the words, however I'm not a native speaker either.

Big Dog's theme could be little louder maybe, because of all the explosions and spinning bullets and stuff it's hard to hear. I also thought that it could use Organ(the musical instrument), would fit the majesty and size of the boss.

Also that song from GDC, is it going to be in the game? Hopes for lyrics.

Waiting for OST and tabs, keep creating the goodness =)

Hey hey! Thanks for a post full of comments!! Let's try to answer these:

The first part of Labs music could probably be a bit shorter like you said. We're also talking with the team about making transitional levels (dark levels) a bit longer because right now they're kinda short and ends too quick!

Palace music is definitely full of long noises deliberately. The music in Nuclear Throne has this drama arc that's been in the back of my mind for a long time. Very melodic stuff sure is kind of a "retro video game" thing, but that's definitely not what I'm aiming with the music!

Definitely need to go through all the ambiences at some point so they don't interfere too much with the music, but still adds the atmosphere of the level to it. We've decided to have ambiences in all the levels and for bonus levels I just want to do something a bit more "out there" if you get what I mean hahah!
The lyrics for the Venus song is definitely gonna be in the OST release. Right now it's super fun to watch people trying to decipher the lyrics so want to watch that a bit longer hehehe! I can say there's just a tiny tiny bit of "venusian" in there, which you can hear more of in GUN GODZ.

Big Dog song IS super low volume! Gonna mix all the songs after I have them together so that's on my todo list!

The acoustic song I've been playing at some Nuclear Throne talks (GDC, Fantastic Arcade, Game City, etc) is *shh shh* the "ending" song of Nuclear Throne *shh shh*. Again, lyrics AND guitar chords are gonna be in the OST!

Thanks super much for thinking and using time to comment on the music stuff! Super nice to see that someone really thinks and cares so much about this stuff too!

Great, wonderful information!

Hope Labs' track ending will be extended also, it's magnificent! As of palace, I expected it won't change, but maybe a medieval B-track? And once again if it was missed, Organ(instrument) would fit the majestic Big Dog.

Very excited for the OST, hope to get hands on the tabs and hope you get a moment to record how-to-play/playthrough of the main theme.

And yes, music is a very important part of a game to me, glad you the devs have time for talks here =)

Thanks for the answers!
