100th Audio Review :D
Well, you posted in the RRC saying that you wanted lower, fairer scores in the reviews, so I'll try and point out everything I didn't like...
First off, the first few bars of piano lasted maybe one bar too long, you could have brought in that extra bit of melody a bit quicker.
I like how you kept the piano still audible when you brought in that techno beat, that was nice..
The main problem I had with this track was that all the time it felt like it was building up to a main song, and I felt like I had finally hit it at 1:50, but with only 30 seconds left it had to start to wind down again straight away. Maybe if you had made the song longer and had more of a full song, because it just feels like you've got the beginning and end, but you're missing the crucial end.
Had I been kind, I would have given you a 9, like everyone else, but I think 7 is more apt, if I'm comparing it to the rest of the songs on NG. Even then, to be honest, 7 is a little generous, but since this is my 100th and possibly final Audio Review, I feel like being a tiny bit generous.
[Review Request Club]
A 6 would have been fantastic and still too generous. This is my latest track, and yet, I excluded it from a 6-song portfolio I gave to my music teacher yesterday. I'm not proud of this song, there are -a lot- of things wrong with it and it's still too short of course. So really, I don't mind the 7 and it does seem too generous.
The main problem with the song does seem to be its anti-climatic nature indeed. It's too short but that's because, like most of the my other songs, I never finish it.
Congrats on your 100th review and possibly final review, it's an honor to be the one getting it.
Not too funny.
The vocals, as you're probably aware of, are pretty horrible. There's way too much static on them, and it's just really generic and computer generated...Still, I suppose it's no surprise that Microsoft Sam wants to die, being forced to say whatever anyone wants..
The music itself isn't too bad, but not actually sad whatsoever..
It just feels like a joke, but not really funny...
Try again, methinks.
It's only funny to me because it's based off of something that happened to me recently during a fire alarm at my school. You probably won't think that's funny either depending on your views about the things involved, but here it goes anyway; a MENTALLY CHALLENGED MALE kept screaming about how he wanted to die, and the person in charge of him was laughing which made me laugh. Yeah, that's pretty much it. It's not supposed to be sad AT all, it's not supposed to mix well with the music because it's not actually supposed to BE sad. The music is like the teacher's point of view and the voice is the dude's point of view.
I usually don't like trance much at all, but this song is really easy and nice to listen to.
The melody is nice, and never gets boring or repetitive. The beat carries it expertly too.
It kinda reminds me, especcialy the start, of some intro to some series of tutorials on the internet for some reason...Or maybe the news...Either way, it's professional quality music that would well suited for the media in some way.
Can't wait to hear more from you! :D
I kind of understand what you mean about associating it with some type of tutorial, it does kind of give off that feel if you think about it.
Thanks for the review!
Bit dull...But good :)
Generally, I thought it sounded pretty good :)
I know it's an ambient song, but it didn't stand out enough to me though..It just didn't grab my attention, but it wasn't painful to listen to, just not worthy of a second visit.
For four hour's work though, it was great! Nothing much else I can think of.
Rush much? Tehe.
Yeah i often have ambience influences :D Thanks for the reivew. Peaceout!
Well, first off, this is by no means Ambience..Not quite sure what it is, but not Ambience..
I quite liked the song..The general melody was nice, and varied enough, so, coupled with the short song length, never became boring.
I think that the vocals at the start would have been better if they were a bit louder, as they were drowned out by the music a bit.
My favourite part was the piano at the end, it was a nice sombre end to the slightly sad song.
Overall, good job. I'll be looking forward to hearing more of your stuff :)
ambient was the closest thing i would say it is, i have that problem somtimes withe my ambient/glitch songs
yeah im getting that the vocals should have been louder from a couple of people, listening to it again now, im starting to agree
im glad you liked the track dude
The vocal sample at the start was great, and kept me listening, but the actual music wasn't too good...It was just a bit repetitive..The beat was alright, but nothing compelled me to stay listening..
The second vocal sample was a good choice too, and a cool way to end the song.
thanks for the tips, next time i think i'll add a solo to something to cut down the repetition, thanks for the review!
This started off great, with the amazing glitchy effects and all that..Unlike many songs of this kind, you managed not to sound generic whatsoever.
Unfortunately, as the song progressed, it just didn't do enough for me, really...It got kinda boring after a bit..Still fine to listen to, but nothing that stood out enough..
I enjoyed it though, keep it up :)
This was actually meant to be an experiment for my new glitch filter, and I decided halfway through, just to finish it and make it the sequel to "A Quick Fix". I can see how it starts to get uneventful after the beginning. Thanks for reviewing.
As everyone has said before me, this is very 80s. It was also really relaxing, calm and just a great song to listen to..
I can imagine it being used as the intro to some 80s English country drama series..A few slightly rocky aerial shots of lush hills, valleys and rivers..Panning across fields, close-ups of bees and flowers in the wind..Before finally settling on a panoramic country background, where something like "A Country Life" fades in in a really cheesy font.
I could listen to this for ages, it was great.
I like that image! Thanks for the fave!!
The Ballad of Anna and James :P
Well, first off, this was really repetitive, but that just emphasized the mood of it, I thought...
As I listened to it, this whole sorta plot kinda formed in my head, set in a nightclub...The main character (let's call him James for now) really likes this girl (Anna, we'll say). He was planning on telling Anna how much he liked her at this nightclub..However, before he gets a chance, he spots Anna with another guy, and she's all over him..This song would be the song playing as, on the right of the frame, she is dancing slowly with the other guy, then the focus changes to James sitting at the side, looking miserable...
But anyway, it's a pretty good song.. Quite sombre but relaxing..
Heh, sounds like my life story... Thanks for the review!
Nothing to do with Oasis whatsoever.
There was nothing here that sounded remotely like Oasis, in my opinion...Just sounded like your average generic rock song..
Some vocals would have been added a bit more to it, really...At the moment it's just too repetitive and boring..That said, possibly because it was so repetitive, it was actually quite relaxing..
I usually don't like songs just fading out, but in this case, it kinda worked...
Yeah, it doesn't have anything to do with Oasis. I just felt obliged to submit this since they've gone officially kaput now.
And about the vocals, if someone can sing for this then fine. I won't bother adding vocals to this, I'm a terrible singer.
