This was made with Massive and Absynth 5 in Fl Studio.

Well here's a little story that i made when i mas making the lyrics for this track:

James is a little kid who is fascinated in becoming an astronaut when he gets older, he had his room filled with all kind of spacey stuff. One day he was on the hospital visiting his father who was sick with a terminal disease. He brought with him a silver space ship toy that his father gave him on his birthday hoping he could play with him at the visit.

When James saw him he asked him "When are you coming back home??", he grabbed his toy and told him " I won't be coming back home, because I'm going on a secret mission to explore the galaxy finding a new planet"

"BUT I WANT TO GO WITH YOU, I DON"T WANT YOU TO GO ALONE" James replied

" I'm not going alone" he said "Even if I'm away from you, I'll be with the stars watching you while they guide me to find the way home."

So the lyrics are pretty much based on this conversation that James had with his father.

I can imagine an adult James visiting his father's grave remembering the last conversation he had with him. ( this would be at 1:56 , the part where the lyrics start)

LYRICS:

I'm flying into space
Away from home

I will explore the whole galaxy
into my spaceship
we will find life on a new planet
away from you

I will explore the whole galaxy
This is my place now
with the stars they will travel with me
away from you

Thanks for listening

uh huh

As the others so clearly pointed out, the song is really, really great, but the vocals slightly killed the song to the point of me not downloading it. I was so torn between listening to it so many times, and having to press the back button because of the vocals. 9/10

Hmmm...

While going through the list of dubstep songs and trying to fins something quality, I noticed this song. I listened to it, and I was hooked from the start of the song. The synths give it the perfect extra-terrestrial feeling to it, with a "floating in space" feeling from the background synths that reminded me of 2001: A Space Odyssey. A very well done piece, I thought.

Then the drop.

Sheer majesty, in the sounds and cuts from the foreground synths. The "this is not dubstep" part was perfect for the song, somehow. It all sounded wonderfully, harmonically... I'm not sure for the word here, "endless" maybe...

But... there's always a but, isn't there? This was about the point where I hit the vocals. And I'm not really going to lie here, it wasn't as good as the rest of the song.

One of the things that I've found a lot in songs, especially songs in general from the 90's, is that vocals can often kill an impressive song, no matter how well supported the song is by the instruments. In any song, the vocals always take the lead, and everything else takes the back seat at the time for most of the song. With a dubstep song, this is very hard to do, especially since the song needs to be focused on the sporadic instrumentals, and the voice can oftentimes be incorporated into the instruments. However, when it takes a lead, it can be interesting.

Unfortunately, this is one of those interesting times. I mean, quite frankly, the lyrics themselves are okay for the song. It would seem childish to me, though, and I wouldn't get that that's how it's supposed to be without it being explained to me up in the author comments. It's mainly in the voice of the song.

Now, nothing against you as a singer. This is the second song of yours that I've listened to, and I don't know how you do your music, so I'm not going to be the one to tell you how to write your music. I WILL, however, make suggestions here.

Frankly, you have a voice that reminds me of Eiffel 65, and I enjoy that. Being one of my favorite bands at one time or another (and not for just Blue; Johnny Gray, Silicon Girl, and Journey were brilliant as well), I can relate the singer to his music: A light techno sound that helps carry the voice while the voice carries the song. But hearing this mixed with Eiffel 65 isn't what I would picture them doing.

One of the other things I noticed in the song is that when you sing, there's another version of you singing at a higher pitch. However, the timing for both your voice and the other voice is a little bit off.

So, here's my thoughts:

1. You could very well remove the lyrics from the song. It wouldn't affect it much if you were to loop a synth with the same notes.

2. Potentially lower the pitch of either the foreground and background vocals, or just the foreground. I believe that with either more of a harmonizing between the instruments and the vocals would make it sound all the more excellent. Either this, or to make it so that the steep contrast aids the chaotic sounds of the dubstep by adding the vocals. This way, it can sound more like a part of the instruments instead of standing out all alone.

And the one I would highly recommend, 3. Rerecord the vocals so they match better. I know how difficult it can be to match one set of vocals with another in a song, especially getting them at the same time and being able to hear one over the other. This at the very least would make the vocals seem less sloppy sounding and make it a little more clean sounding.

Again, kudos for making an awesome bass beat. And no offense with the vocals, it's just an opinion.

And with that, adieu.

Thanks for the review

As i have stated before , Eiffel 65 is my biggest influence for me. They are pretty much the reason why acid paradox exists. So it's obvious that there are some influences on my track.

I will have to disagree with some aspects of the vocals you mentioned. In my point of view the vocals make a huge difference when it comes to make an "impact" section on the song because if it wasn't for my author comment, nobody would be expecting vocals in this track because they are not used (excluding the "This is not dubstep") until the very end of the song, so my prediction of the listener's reaction would be something like "woah , there's some vocals here! i wasn't expecting that" which gives an impact to the listeners perspective towards the song but i can't really do nothing else if that impact is taken positively or negatively that's up to the listener's tastes.

Now i perfectly know that im not a good singer, I rarely sing in real life and the lyrics are not that "special" and complex as many other songs. That's when my eiffel 65 influences come into action. If you analyze their lyrics you would notice that they are really simple and hard to take them seriously but it's the combination of sounds(notes) and rhythm patterns that makes them interesting, i was pretty much aiming for that. On the other hand , i personally hate lyrics that are over dramatic , where they use uncommon words just to sound more sophisticated and act like they are some overrated nobel prize writers or something.

You're right about the second voice , It's a little unsynced but nothing to worry about. Makes it sound more natural.

I'm not gonna make any changes on this track anymore, it would help me to analyze it in the future and understand what i did by the time i made this song and what techniques could i take out or keep for my future songs.

But in the end , i appreciate you for taking the time to make a review for this song and don't worry, i know that everyone has a different point of view and i always respect them.

Thank you

Way good

I think you should put another chorus at the beginning. Just a thought.


Acid-Paradox responds:

Nah i really like it the way it is , makes the listener go "WTF i wasn't expecting the track to have vocals"and replay the song just to hear that part again.

Weeee
