This sounds HUGE. The piano sounds great. The synth moving around at the beginning over the piano sounds awesome. When the vocals come in it left a smile on my face. This is great. I can't wait to hear more. 5/5
This is a nice reflective track. It has almost a David Gilmour vibe to it.
+ I liked the overall feel of the song. You definitely accomplished getting that ambient rock style.
+ The call and response type thing you had going on between the bass in the chords and the higher notes was interesting.
+ The Chimes. Harmonics are always fun.
+ The Guitar playing was good.
- It got kinda repetitive towards the end.
- The reverb seemed to muddy the guitar sound in a few parts.
Overall, you have a pretty good tune here. I liked the laid back feel of it. You did a good job on this one. Enjoy using your new interface to create all kinds of new music! 7/10
The "bass" effect was entirely coincidental, i just messed with the reeverb and delay a bit to create a kind of harmonic bass lol That might have been the cause of the little muddyness that atacked sometimes
I am glad you liked it, it got repetitive towards the end because i kinda improvised this in one sit XDD I just cut off the parts i didn't like and then recorded the second gutiar above everything :3
An ambient song with an interesting name. It was definitely an interesting listen with a nice atmosphere.
+ I liked the overall feel of the song. I could really see a piece like this fitting in the background of a game or animation with a tense feeling to it.
+ I liked the overall tempo and length of the song. It moved along at a nice pace, but was not overly long.
+ The levels of all the sounds were actually pretty good.
- It felt repetitive. Try to progressive somewhere.
- The song in general just sounded kind of bland. There was really nothing that stuck out to me that made me want to listen to it again. (Although at the time of writing the pros and cons of this song I have listened to it 3 times.)
Overall you did a nice job of creating drama and tension, but the tension was never really resolved. You should really strive to create a song that pushes you to the limits of your creativity. Both with the tones of the synths and the composition of this song, I feel like you could have pushed it further. Really reward yourself and your listener for taking the journey. The best part of creating your own music is that you can do whatever you want with it.
You are off to a good start, so keep trying to improve! 5/10
Thank you for the review I will try to improve future songs.
I consider myself something of a punk rock connoisseur, so this review was fun for me. So much of punk rock is about energy, and boy does this song have it.
+ The energy this song has is undeniable.
+ The structure and time are great for a song of this style/genre.
+ The transition at 1:10 from your solo section to your downtempo/verse-ish section is really good.
+ The intro is basically perfect for this song.
- It needs vocals. This is punk rock man! Find anyone who is mad about something and have them scream their heart out over this track!
- The levels are all over the place. In particular the guitar that starts at 0:35. Also the solo guitar.
- While forgivable for being awesome, the solo is a bit sloppy. I would recommend really trying to tighten up the song in general.
This song is unique, but at the same time reminds me of a lot of stuff I have heard from local punk bands as well underground touring bands that have came through my area. So much about punk rock is the setting and atmosphere. It's something that's really hard to capture in a recording session. I actually really dig the raw type of sound you are going for here. It really fits the song, but i feel like there some is refining to do here. Thanks for the good listen, it really brought back some memories of being at a local venue and drinking beer with buddies. Keep up the good work because you are headed in the right direction. 6/10
Wow thank you so much! I know it needs vocals, I should get on that for next time. The raw sound is more less the low quality of my equipment. Cheers
Finally! A rock song to review! This one is a diamond in the rough. I've listened to it three times now. The theme is mean and has attitude. It's upbeat and you clearly know how to play guitar well.
+ Good overall structure. I could really picture someone being able to sing over this easily.
+ Yes, that main theme/riff is sweet. lol
+ The section at 1:55 is great. My favorite part of the song.
- 0:26 needs a better transition. Something seems off there. Transitions as whole in the song seem to need some work.
- I really disliked the guitar tone. I do however understand it's a demo and likely scratch tracks.
- Along the same lines as the guitar tone, the drums sounded really flat and out of place.
- The fade out at the end seemed unnecessary and it might have sounded great to end it with the punctuation of that riff rather than fading out. Leave the listener wanting more with a statement, don't just fade away!
I really like this as a demo track. You should be proud of the potential this has. Keep working on it and always pushing the boundaries. I think this could be really good with some work. I can't wait to hear it as a finished product. Good job. 5/10
Thank you! Will be sure to re-visit this one with your tips in mind.
This song has a very reflective mood to it. I was impressed by the way you used ambiance to build suspense, but still managed to evolve the song as you went on.
+That drop at 1:04 is so good.
+You did a great job creating rhythm with the swells. Especially around the 2:00 mark.
+I like the suspense you added towards the end. The high strings that came in at 3:55 were just sick.
-I the lead melody at 1:15-1:50 seems a little loud to me.
-I really think it could have used some big percussion. I know it is kind of cliche at this point, but I feel like the end could have been incredible with some big drums brought in.
I really enjoy songs that take me on a journey. You, sir, managed to do that. Thank you for the great listen. Good job. 8/10
Thank you for your feedback, I like very much that you include clear pros and cons.
As a comment on your cons, I would argue that the lead melody would easily be drowned out if not at the volume it is, because there is so much else going on as well.
I consciously avoided using big percussion to make sure it did not become too cliché.
But I really appreciate you taking the time writing a review!
This is a great piece. The beginning slower section was good. The only thing I didn't really like was how long the upbeat part at the end went on for. The rhythm just kind of wore on me after a while, but that being said, I appreciate the time and effort it took to add new layers to that rhythm to keep it interesting.
The Section from 1:15 - 1:30 was very interesting. I liked it a lot.
The brass at 3:15 was incredibly triumphant. lol It was great.
The last section just seemed kind of long winded.
There was a note on the brass around 3:20ish that seemed loud and a little out of place.
Overall you have a great song. I enjoyed listening to it. Keep up the good work! 8/10
Thank you for your review! Those problem will be fixed in final version. Thank you again for your inputs!
I really like this piece. I enjoy how it's gentle in the beginning, but I can feel the power around the time the choir comes in. Very nice, and great use of the sample library. I would love to pick your brain about which of the samples you find most useful from the massive file. I have East West SO, but I am always looking for some other stuff to compliment what I have.
5/5 Great Song! +1 for using Finale!
