Gillenium responds:

This might be in contention for the weirdest song I've ever made. Must remake! Thanks again.

Nostalgia

This sounds very old school. This song reminds me of Bomberman Hero for the N64. I miss that game.


Gillenium responds:

I was an N64 kid :) Probably had a big influence on my music. I made some strange stuff back in these days. This song could really benefit from a modern remastering. Unfortunately, I lost the files for it years ago. Thanks for the review!

i love it!

very well done! I especially like the sounds that play at the very begginning of the track. it brings back great memories of the time of N64. I dont know why. but anyway, thanks for making this. I appreciate it. Five!!!


Gillenium responds:

Well, this song was made shortly into the Gamecube era, but I was an avid fan of the N64, too. So, maybe that somehow affected this.... never thought about that before. For a lot of my older songs like this, video games were the main influence. I didn't have too many musical influences. I just listened to the radio.... bleh. Thanks for the review!

A good song from a good artist

Sounds high-tech in my opinion. It's got a great strange beat. I may not be the best user on the portal, but I hope my reviews mean something. I first heard about you (gillenium) through mindscape. And, well, I was curious, so I looked through the rest of your songs.

You are a very creative artist. No song of yours goes below a 8/10 in my book. So you have my admiration. Good work, Gillenium.


Gillenium responds:

Mindscape brings another fan my way! I'm glad you enjoy my music. For this particular song, I can't say I'm 100 percent happy about the way it has aged. Some of my songs age gracefully, but I'm less excited about this one. I didn't know much about compression when I released it, so I squish too many sounds together. I made some weird melody choices though. Weird is good :) Thanks for the review.

A review from ME

Yeah, the guy reviewing a lot of your stuff up there is me.
I didn´t feel for reviewing all your stuff with this kind of lenghty review, so I had an alt and used the feature of that alt doing so. This is a last review because I want to make a biggie.
So onto the review.

So I´ve yet not opened the song... the title is insomnia, sounds nice, but DNB is not totally my style, but I guess DNB is OK for me.

*opens song*

And it starts out good, with some nice semi-synths that could eithere be pads or leads... a strange instrument truly. The lead following was really harsh, it gave flavour into the song though.

The drums were OK, pretty basic though, but they really follow the song in a nice style, there´s nothing wrong with the tempo, beat or anything, and it´s generally a good drum roll.

Jungle beats, huh? I love that stuff. It´s not always you hear a good one, but when the good ones come up... its like... yeah, really fucking awesome.

Nice bassline into it wich starts a tad late, though, but I guess that only makes the song kinda cool. It plays a good melody and follows the song and drum roll again,. there really aren´t anything else than when it comes in I can complain about.

The title fits the song very good. The description doesn´t say particulary much about the song, but I guess that gives some kind of surpridse.

And for the scores;

Originality; 10, because it´s totally damn your own style, the effects and synths really aren´t anything I´ve heard before.

Clarity is a 10, because there is no clipping or any kind of disortion in the song whatsoever, the levels are really good, and the volume, there is nothing wrong with.

Diversity is 10, again! I loved the shitload of stuff you put in this kinda short song, and there are loads of different melodies and beats in it!

Effort is a 10. You take long time making your songs, dontcha?
These all sound fucking awesome and better than anything I could do.

Overall is big fat cock. If you read the review through I believe you could guess what the overall score actually is.

Great damn work, I loved the journey, bye!


Gillenium responds:

You saved the big review for an oldie?? Ah well... thanks anyway. This is the first song that made me feel popular, because it was number 12 on Amazon's dnb charts for a while UNTIL amazon stopped making their music storage service free... I got pretty mad. Glad you enjoyed though. Reviews like this inspire me to compose! :D
