    Not What I Was Expecting...

    Okay, one thing I've learned through listening to many audio dramas is how much listener expectation can color your experience of a piece, and this was no exception. Through episode 2 and 3... this isn't what I was expecting to hear, so it really threw me off. I was expecting a more straightforward narrative arc, much like the 'OT' We're Alive story, but Goldrush has already established itself to be its own thing, and quite different in tone.

    I can really appreciate it from a craft perspective, but from a story perspective, I'm still not not there yet.

    Personally not a fan of the background music so far it just feels off somehow. And the random notes at the end of chapter 2 when theyre talking eagerly is completely out of place and doesnt feel like were alive in any way. And overall chapter 2 and 3 have felt kinda... bad. First chapter was great so i hope it gets better as soon as the party is over

    You're talking about those synth stabs around the 25 minute mark? I think I get what Kc was going for there. My take on it was it's a few disparate notes from the WA theme injected into the scene as a non-diegetic representation of the soldier's growing sense of excitement at the prospects of finding the gold... their 'Gold Rush', as it were.

    ye those, and i understood that its just not a thing that fits into how things have been done before, it makes it too much like a comedy. yes theres fun moments in we're alive too but those notes just didnt fit in. i havnt been much of a fan at all of the last two chapters its like some random person wrote a fandom version of a party with everyone, it just doesnt have the were alive feeling

    That's pretty much exactly what I told Kc yesterday. I said that it "feels like a We're Alive parody, acted out by the characters in We're Alive". The tone is certainly different than original WA or especially Lockdown... jury is still out as to whether it's gonna 'work'.
