I really like it alot
THe only problem is when the piano melody comes in but is alone with the background, it sounds unmatched. When the accordian sound comes back, it works again. ITs almost like the happy, bouncy piano sound doesn't quite mix with the rest of it. I love it anyways, its interesting and has a slightly twisted side to it. But I'd like to hear a few more versions with different piano melodies added in - similar, just less bubbly. I'm not a music expert, so I'm sorry if this didn't make much sense.
I see what you were going for
A+ for trying to put the sounds together, but they mean nothing to each other and make you sound like you're listening to two really different sounds. I like the ambient side, but mixing it with really industrial sound effects just makes it sound like high-pitched dentist drilling at a rave show. Either put the ambience with softer sound effects or vice versa. THe first six fifteen seconds or so were good. THat sounded like it had a little bit of harmony.
Hehe, listen to Dressed in Wires. If you honestly think that you can't mix industrial sounds with ambient sounds your denying half the music I listen to a chance. The goal of this track was to have an soft ambience with some harsh electronica sounds on it. I understand that it might not be your style or whatever, but I love how you put it, a "high pitched dentist drilling at a rave show." I'm sorry but that's exactly what I like. Like I said listen to Dressed in Wires.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review.
I can't decide
I'm really torn. I like the inventive lack of structure - its like a poem thats really good even though it doesn't rhyme or stick to meter, but its also unpleasently bouncing around. I think it would be perfect with a little more cohesiveness tying everything together. Otherwise it feels more like sound effects than a 'song'. But if thats what you were going for than awesome job.
A lot of that has to do with my total ignorance about things like measure and meter and all that. I'm kind of just learning as I go. I'm glad you liked it though. Thanks for the review.
Its pretty good
First part is the best, but it sounds like its trying to be too many things at once.
I am not gonna lie, but yeah I would that is true. I couldn't think of much to do after that. Last time I do a song after pulling an all nighter.
This made me pull out my 48 Hrs Cd again
I wish I was a music major so I could be more specific, but when the song goes into its main part at :37 in, the xylaphone sounds too loud for awhile - maybe see if backing down on that when the music unfolds there to see if it doesnt make it a little more fluid. Overall I loved it. One of the better submissions today.
The xylaphone part is loud in the mix toward the beginning and end because it's a 5/4 riff over the main melody in 4/4 time. I'll check it out and see how it sounds lower in the mix or just a decrescendo when the drum-kit drops in!
Thank you Delina,
glad you enjoyed the track and I much appreciate the review!
What is this?!
Its like eighties pop baseline with a mix of ambient and a touch of house techno. We need a word for this - its futuristic and nostalgic. Only thing is its a little boring and when the drum-like beat kicks in around 2:30, its too heavy, to distracting, it feels likes its throwing off the harmony. THen the following cresendo is alittle more homogenous then the rest of the song before it fills in. Its not missing much, but it needs a little something more to go from good to freaking amazing. I love anything that sounds unique though.
Some Morbid Shit
I really like the split personality thing. THat's a very cool idea to run with. I think with your abilty to rhyme, you should put out things with some higher quality. And, maybe its just me, but it was so similar to Eminem's style of beats and rapping (especially with impersonating womens voices and that sort of thing) I think you could develop your own distinct stuff. I look foward to more. Oh, and maybe don't scream so much.
Cool sounds without a lot of direction
THis song is pretty interesting and not bad a t all, but it doesn't work when you kick up the tempo. I'm sorry I can't explain it better, but something is just off a little whenever the tempo goes up, and it kind of ruins it for me.
Just above Mediocre
Thats a beautiful voice in a song that has a serious identity crisis. That voice is sultry and emotional, and a little gritty, but the music suffers so much from the contrast (as well as a lack of any stand-out instrumental preformances) that it really starts to sound like crummy soft techno. Plus the lyrics are kind of boring. I listened to it twice and all I can remember now is that she's alive and she wont apologize...everything out I zoned out for. Vocals would sound great in a remix and with a more complex bass line.
Better than nothing I guess. I'll keep working at it I guess...
Its not bad at all, but it lacks all forms of melody through half the song. I think you could keep the heavy, sort of scratchy sound if you had an underlying melody that tied it together with all of the rest thats going on in it. Alot of times it just sounds like a bad mic. But it was cohesive, it was pretty impressive.
Yeah, there's a lot of clipping on most of the instruments. As for melody, eh, I didn't want any. Whenever I try to add it, it makes the song feel happier, and I wasn't really going for that.
