One of my first real attempts at DnB. I might make this longer... not sure yet.

This song...

...is amazing. I generally don't like people that do that, what with the elipsis leading from the review title into the review itself, but it really rather dumbstruck me with being so damn awesome.

Anyway, on to the review, this song is rather long, so I'd rather just review it bit by bit while listening to it once :)

Intro (0:01 to ~ 0:30):

Very well done, this SERIOUSLY snagged me into the song. It's got the super bouncie bass to melody intro (what begins sounding kind of like a bass turns out to be the real rhythm/melody to the song) with those crazy sound FX in there, makes it sound pretty awesome. One of the better intros I've ever heard. 3/3 for intro.

First Body (0:30 - 1:47):

This junk is so big, I need two body sections because you split the body of the song in HALF! This is perhaps the worst section of the song, mainly because it gets really repetetive at times. A bit more variation here would do. 2/3.

Second Body (1:48 - 2:40):

After the song's second pause it starts going all acid on me, and I like it. By this point I've had about ten seconds too much of that damn starting theme, and I needed a breakdown back to basics with some distortion in it to make the song fresh again. This timing is about perfect, maybe move it up around five seconds or so. The song really slows down towards the middle of this section. It almost starts to sound arabian, possibly saharan, with the speed of the music and notes, but then this segment ends. Very well done. 3/3.

Finale (2:40 - End):

This part of the song pulls a traditional Dimrain, and merges body 1 and body 2 together to form some sick twisted kind of body 3, that is in fact the end of the song. I like how it got sped up and yet it still felt all slow and distorted out at the same time. Really gave it a unique flavor, and you could tell the end was coming, which is always a plus. The end itself is roughly two seconds long, and is a very good way to end the song, that little crunch of notes at the end. Not quite sure what to call it, but good job with that cut off, it sounds perfect. 3/3.

Now, needless to say, I've gone far over 10 with this score, in fact it has hit 11/12 by now. However, I'm not stopping there, I am rating its creativity and trueness to genre out of eight! Yes, eight!

Trueness to D&B -

It's missing a bit of the bass I expected, but the distorted bubble bass going on in the second half of the song kind of takes care of that. I suppose this is a 3/4, it needs a bit more bass, but it sounds fine as it is.

Creativity/style -

Well, this is my "do I like it or not" area, and damn do I like it. Well done. 4/4.

This nets you a total score of 18/20, or 9/10 for this D&B song. I will, of course, round up to 5/5 for my rating score.

To answer your question, you should cut a piece of the middle out and expand it a bit in other places, but that is just my opinion. I may not know music, but I do know what I like, and I think that would rock out loud.

Ooh... Nice...

I actually like this song. I'd like to put this on StepMania. =D

Pros: 1. It has a great deal of suspense in it. 2. The slowdowns and speedups occur at the perfect time. 3. You also put in the perfect amount of acid, and the rhythm is perfect. I actually think it's pretty good overall. =)

Cons: You could've used a little bit more bass. I don't hear as much bass as there is drums. But I still think it's okay overall.

Overall, 9/10. Nice job. =D

Good.

But this doesn't compare to some of your other work. I kept waiting for some insane beat to blow my mind but it didn't come. This fails to grab my attention like some of your other work.

Always First to Ruin A song...

Not drum and bass, if good.

This is techno. It has acid. Not a reese. Drum and Bass requires DRUMS and BASS of a specific type, and this comes nowhere close to drum and bass.

First off, you need to hear some drum and bass. Listen to Spor or Noisia.

The reeses are usually 2 saws detuned and distorted. Here it was just resonance. The snare was not punchy at all, and the kick was all sub, no mid. There were no ghosts, and the hats were wayy too fucking loud. You used no rhythms that fit drum and bass.

This song is not drum and bass.

I'm sure that you are going to act like a faggot and say "NO IT IS DRUM AND BASS" and all of your pussy fanboys are going to flag this and some fanboy mod is going to delete it, but there is something you need to get through your head. This is not drum and bass.

THIS IS NOT DRUM AND BASS. Get this travesty of a song off this site, and do not even consider making it longer. I hope you learn your lesson.

Glad to see you branching out.

Pretty cool song. The drums were a bit weak but what you did with them made up for them. Nice distorted synths at around 1:10. This song had good diversity with is something i look for in dnb. keep it up.
