Moved the YT link to the correct entry field.
Anyway it's a VICE capture, no point in actually looking at it as it's even degraded (you know, mpg artifacts) comparing to watching it directly in the emulator, imho. It would make sense only if taken from real hw.

These sounds and compositions are far beyond the usual Marcin's stuff. Psych858o is the new the PRI of the millennium.
Make sure you check at least the YT link.

Loving the music Marcin! Exactly what I needed to soothe my nerves. I'm 'all ears', when you make long anthemic compositions.

Wonderful. Moody, ambitious beats perfect for this dark winter night. I especially love your pads in "First Contact". Greatness.

Superb presentation, too.

C'mon - photo choice is spot on - Psycho looks here as monumental as he does in reality :D

Yeah, I know, it's nice to be an inspiration to you guys ;) but seriously, I just meant that it was probably not the best photo of Psycho that Carrion used :) And yes, pointing the eq to some other DMC registers is certainly a good idea.

@all: Thank you for the positive feedback. It really helps to keep us going. And thank you for the warm welcome. We're glad you like us back :)

@wacek: regarding the composer in the music collection. Please type in "Life Work" in the search field :)
And regarding the equalizer: i'm open for suggestions. I'm using the "note" registers from DMC and it seems that Psycho is doing something funky in the tune #2 . I'm open for any suggestions and might even release a bugfix version :)

Nice release! Definately my kind of sound, good gfx (although you could probably find a more flattering reference photo ;) and as for the code I have one complaint - the equalizer. You had 2 tracks to test the equalizer 'principle' on, and it doesn't work good on the second track. Wonder if anyone else noticed that ;)

But nevertheless, good to see you guys releasing something again!

Hi, thanks for your comments.
I understand that "it's ain't easy to listen to" soundtrack, however, I would like to give you some background, especially about First Contact tune.
Behind this one, there is a whole science fiction story about "them" landing on earth (at around 1:17) till "their" departure.
One needs to have imagination. I'm pretty sure that it would work out much better with some kind of animation. However, this is a first 2Pack and my idea was to keep it in a special mood. Another one will come, yet with different style and atmosphere.
