My round 3 submission for NGADM! more of the same jazz rock metal crap. Thanks for listening!
This almost isn't fair. This is the best music I've heard on this website. How did...what did you...why the eff,... it's just not fair. God loves you more than the rest of us.
I'm super glad you think so <: thank you for the kind words
I dunno. I might have a particularly weak point for your style since I'm consistently giving you scores so high even you don't agree with them, but I feel bad about it at all and I honestly don't feel that it's an overstatement to say that the stuff you come up with in a couple of weeks challenges the stuff of established prog rock/metal bands.
My old praise remains: the instrumentation is absolutely glorious, from the absolutely authentic sounding drums via the playful latin jazz piano to the layers and layers of tight, squeaky clean and impressive guitar playing. There seem to be more chord progressions in this entry than the other entries this round combined. I thought the flow was great as well - sure, there are a whole bunch of abrupt and unexpected transitions but after a few listens I find none jarring enough to throw me off.
This time around your submission is one major issue away from jackpot, and it's a composition-related one, for this track certainly tests the listeners endurance and attention span: the song just keeps on going and going and going at full steam with hardly any change of pace save for the occasional roadbumps (i.e wonky transitions and triplet grooves). It's like the musical analogy of a stream-of-consciousness essay with stunningly beautiful prose that doesn't actually convey a big coherent meaningful message, but has an overarching feel and certain recurring ideas, and ends up being a hell of a ride in the end.
Wow Buoy c: thank you so much for the kind review! I think I should try to find a new approach to transitions though. I think BTBAM is already doing the whole abrupt thing XD
Thanks again Buoy y r u so nice
Everyone else's reviews are all long an imposing and stuff.
I just want to say that this is so stupidly engaging and enjoyable.
Thank you for making this. ouo
Sounds alot like Animals As Leaders O.o I dunno how to feel about this I like it but it seems very similar >.> I like it though
I love it whenever some funk and jazz is incorporated into rock. Makes it more active and complex. Great job here man, was this made with live instruments, VSTs, or a mixture of both?
The drums are sequenced; it is a VST called AddictiveDrums. Everything else is either a live guitar, live bass, or live keyboard part.
Thanks for the review!
