Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Some decent ideas floating around in there, but I think the synth choice really may have killed the melody. I am trying to envision it with a different more trancey lead and it definitely sounds better with it. And the drums unfortunately detract greatly from the song until about 1:30. P.S I love the little video-game sounding break at 1:22, it was really sweet haha.

I think you should rechoose synths, keep the melodies, and add some more bass to this to give it some more Umpfh.

5/5 for the sake of getting your score up.

Thank you for the honest feedback. I suppose that I should've mentioned that this song isn't entirely finished. However, let me try to explain the song a little more. I'm very influenced by video game music, and sometimes, songs that start out as VG music, may transform into something else entirely, depending on what direction I think the song should go. And I think if you think of video games while listening to this song, you will hear what I hear. Definitely some old school influence, especially Vectorman, haha. But anyway, the main thing is, if I changed the song, or even just the sound of the main lead, it wouldn't be the same song I've listened to a thousand times. I realize the beginning sounds cheesy, but that's how the song started out. I basically took a video game sound, and modernized it as the song progessed, while at the same time keeping the main theme.

So anyway, I really appreciate the criticism. And I will try some things, but if I feel at all like the song is going a different direction, I'll just leave it alone. I hope you can accept her for what she is. Maybe a couple more listens will change your mind. Thanks again.

Sweet simplicity

Fucking incredible melody mixture, up until 1:14. You mixed 2 keys together and lose a lot of points for that, but I LOVE the bells, and the 2 overlapping melodies. Sounds like something straight off Final Fantasy, but it seems you ran out of ideas somewhere along the line.

MattReeves responds:

Wow, you know, I never even noticed that. I made this song over 2 years ago. It's weird that you pointed it out, because I can hear what you're talking about. Although, I think it's mainly only one note that's really sour. But I think it fits in with the creepiness of the bassline. So I'm kind of on the fence with this one. I think if I had brought the bassline out a little more, the melody would've faded into the background, and sounded less strange. Nevertheless, my mind is very boggled right now. Huh. Well thanks, haha.

I love seeing people try and use padding for main melodies, its very pretty.

You have some good melodic ideas but the hi-hat has got to go, it detracts from the main melody. Also you need to throw in more atmosphere, you have one synth playing, and like 2 samples with one bass synth sounding thing. Make more go on, and don't be afraid to raise things up an octave!
I like the melody though, very sad sounding. Keep working on it!

Epic. Atmospheric.

A lot of energy in this one philjo, love the piano :-)

Long intro, like I do haha, but the melodies are very well pieced together, and great synth choices in my opinion. The only thing I didn't like was the cymbol, but thats more of a personal preference. The piano had perfect quality (much better than I can ever get mine to sound haha I just pump them full of reverb and eq them) and the padding was very pretty :-)

Good job, I'm glad you're still making music.

philjo responds:

Thanks man, thanks. A deal is a deal, you don't stop making music and neither will I. Deal. Cheers. =]

Thoroughly enjoyed.

I would love to remix this and complete it.

The melodies are stellar, but it lacks atmosphere, and it builds up to nothing, you really set yourself up for something great. Finish it or hand it over haha.

So crunchy, I'd eat it for breakfast

That bass was sick.

The song was a little too simple for my tastes, considering for the first minute it was nothing but bass and drums, however the drums were VERY clear and well mastered (So was the bass).

The acid synths you used (the 303) were appropriate, but the melody was a little boring. They fit well however, and I loved the vocals you threw in with them around 1:40.

As for the next part of the song, where you introduce the prettier arpeggiated melody, and the pads, I have the exact opposite problem, the melodies were much better, however the synth you used did not really bring out the impact they could have had haha.

I must say though, all in all, the song had a sweet vibe, and it was very well mastered. Good job! 5/5 to help keep it popular. :-)

Nav responds:

Thanks! DJ Nosebleed and I are working on another song of this style :), I'll let you know when it comes out!

Intrigueing little piece

Very cool melodies, they fit well, and like a few of your other songs I have listened to, the harmonizing of the elements (and melodies) is very fitting. However mastering seems to be your weak point. Try not turning everything up so much. Although I have no clue how you would achieve drums that crunch like that without clipping haha.

Anyways, keep producing. Just don't over-do effects.

The songs I'm making in Logic have much better mixing because of the tools I have available. I also have a bad habit to mixing with bad headphones.

Great harmonics

Fairly original, nice filtering, and great harmonizing near the last section of the song.

Great mastering also, very nice balance.
Good job!
