A very lovely song. Its got an awesome feel to it. Brings happiness though I would say personally that this is more electronic then orchestrated. I could actually go with hearing some more strings in this through out the song and not just in parts of it. I bet that some well placed strings (perhaps some cello's) put in to back the synths (and not just the ones that come in at 2:29) would make this song stand out as a whole. Anyway that is just my opinion. I'd say that you did a pretty good job on the most part of this song. I'm going to be faving this and looking for more from you in the future.
Thanks for your review, I really appreciate it! :)
you.....are....tooo....angry!!! LOL actually man this sound spretty good for being a bad white kid rapping lol good work buddy
I love how you review a two year old track xD you know im better then this
I JUST REVIEWED YOUR MUSAAAAAK!!!!!!
that was a beautiful story brother It had a happy ending
Oh this is very well done. Has that ambient feel yet at the same time you keep the emotion flowing with the strings. I can almost hear this in the background of an RPG while a backstory is being played out. Wonderful work on this.
Thank you, I appreciate the kind words, much emotion went into this piece
Loving the piano intro to this song. The story i'm getting from this song is a lost love and a man reflecting looking out a window to a raining front porch where he remembers being with his lost love. Wonderful but i feel its missing something. Perhaps if you added some subtle strings it would give a bit more to the song. For the most part though its a wonderful listen and it makes the imagination run. That is what i believe music SHOULD do. So great work.
Thank you for the suggestion about the subtle strings. I can see how that would add to the texture.
And nice story, too...It makes me think about the girl I like. I sure hope that I'm never that guy you describe! :p
Very nice for the most part. I have to say though that your lead in for this was a little long and i feel would bore some people. For the most part waiting is well worth it. You got a pretty cool sound here. Though I'm not 100 % with the guitar synths. They work for what your using them for however i bet this could TRULY shine if you used some better samples. Keep it up buddy and good work on this.
It's been way too long since I've seen any comments from you, man. Literally almost four years. Where've you been? lol
Getting back to the comment itself...the synths I used were used mainly because of my own personal preference. They're tried and true, and I have a hard time giving up using something that works, you know what I'm saying? I would hope that the relatively long wait would be worth it, since I don't make my songs and covers to disappoint. In fact, I just heard from a friend of mine only this Monday that my song "Battle of Gram Cave" made his Tron lightcycle game that much more epic. Obviously, that means I did good in making loops.
That same friend also told me that he held off in telling me that so as to not let it go to my head. At the same time, though, I know I'm good, and I know I might even be one of the best in my genre, if not on NG, but at the same time, there's better artists on NG, like Goukisan, DjSc00p, EvilDog, and you. It's gratifying to be told that my music is good, because that tells me that four years means something.
Thanks for the review!
Usually I'm all in when it comes to a song like this. However somethings very off about this particular song. It loops nicely I'll say that much. However its missing so much. My advice would be to turn down your choir slightly so its in the background add some more strings for the foreground perhaps give it a slow beat leading up and then go into something full on with a slightly quicker tempo but keeping your ambient feel. Remember Ambient is supposed to be relaxing. None the less Good work and keep it up.
thank you for your advice. given this is jsut a very short work and no true details are in anything is addable and adjustable :) i have already lowered the choir and i am attempting to make it have a more calm feel first. everything will take its play. again thanks for the criticism. i and my friends who test listen agree that everything sounds better when you have different people give you different ideas to try. thanks!
Reminds me of a chase theme song. Like one car chasing the other guns blasting and life or death kind of scene. Lovely use of instrumentation. Nice mix also. What gets me is you put all this hard work into the song and no one else has reviewed? What has this community turned into? Anyway, I could do without some of the clips in the song. That is just personal preference though. The break down at 2:09 was pretty cool. I'm listening to see what this turns into. Again at this point of the song good use of effects though there's those voice clips i'm not fond of again. I think in this case less is best for something like that. Anyway, This transitioned into something pretty nice to listen to none the less. Good work and keep it up!
I just uploaded this and nobody in the community knows of this yet. Its just an idea as of now but thanks for the review.
Loving the church bell at the opening of the song. I think perhaps some choir in the background at that point would bring out the other instruments you have that play along. The song itself seems to work for a horrific moment in someones life. Though the song is wanting a bit.. needs a little more to add that effect. Perhaps a heartbeat drum in the background. Those are my two cents. Good work thus far though.
I see what you're saying, and I think you're right. Thank you for the comments! I really appreciate them.
Tooth pain is the worst kind of pain bro. Hope all is better now. Anyway, on to the review.
The opening is a pretty good build up. Makes me feel like something awesome is gonna happen. Nice use of choir and i believe strings for that build up. Ah, the song has begun and gives off a silent hill vibe to me. Running from monsters and the unknown. The song is tittled I feel for good reason obviously. Wonderful work on this. The piano added to the song gives a wonderful feel but i feel there could of been more to it. though i guess sometimes less is best eh? Wonderful work and good luck on the competition.
I think the section post 1:13 drags a little, but I think the song is at a mix point where non-head phone listeners lose a lot of the acoustically effects. I'll probably layer up the main flippy floppy panny reverb on/off synth with something subtle that's centered.
More to what exactly? The piano and its writing? PM me more deets. I think its worst hit by a few quick transitions with it, and needing a little more velocity layer work. Some spots are sexy and others sound to me like I'm playing piano with my ass cheeks (not a good thing).
Glad you liked the intro - I was certainly trying something a little more teasery there.
