Energetic, funk-ish type thing. I had a slightly cheesy JRPG battle music-type feel as my goal while creating this. Hope you like it.

Made in Reaper using a bunch of soundfonts, TAL's Dub III, Reverb III, BitCrusher and Chorus VSTs, g200kg's ProtoPSG VST, Poulin Le456 and a few in-built effects.

The name? Got it from a random phrase generator. I liked the ungrammatical whimsy of it.

The first few notes make me think it has turned into a battle and this is the theme playing.

The main synths and pianos make me think of an rpg being played on the SNES. That quirky yet fun to listen to sound. The bass has a funky sound to it that makes me think of the song as a bit of a boss battle possibly. Lastly, the drums with the claps and snares and overall rhythm make me think of Final Fantasy X battles.

Overall, very enjoyable beat.

I was definitely going for a SNES sound. I wasn't entirely faithful to the SNES's memory/sampling limitations or anything, but I was aiming for that kind of feel. Glad it came across!
Interesting... I never really got into Final Fantasy X; sounds like I'll have to give the soundtrack a bit of a listen.
Thanks for the review!

Pretty good song. I like the upbeat tempo here a lot. It creates a very good and "energetic" atmosphere, just like you would expect a song to sound like, if it was supposed to be a song that is played during battles.

But this song can also be used during other occasions. It's that kind of song that motivates you to get some stuff done, so I guess it would also work well as "world map music", heh.

The slower parts of the song fit in quite well. They give the listener some time to rest, before he has to get up again and get things done. ;)

This track immediately brought back memories from the days of Gameboy soundtracks for me, which made me feel more than a little nostalgic. I was thinking that you might want to EQ the bass to get just a little less attack and a little more of the low-mid range, but then again, you made this pretty lo-fi, so I understand how that fits in with your production choices. This doesn't really strike my area of "expertise" (if you can call it that) in terms of production, but I like it, so I can at least tell you that you're doing something right! There's a lot of good employment of counterpoint and different voices that works to the benefit of the piece as a whole. One thing I'd like to see more of is more structural variety. You had two main themes and sections you played off of, and I'd like to see where a different melodic variation and chord pattern could take you. Still, I like this a lot, and I can definitely hear the JRPG vibe coming through clean and clear.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. I wanted to leave a little high end in the bass -- I thought it gave the individual notes a bit more definition. Listening back though, I see what you mean: I'll see what it sounds like if I cut it down a little -- having some mid-high end on the bass was a conscious production choice, but having too much wasn't!
lijkDICKJUSTICE (below) said the same thing about adding more variety -- I'm starting to spot a pattern, here! I'll try to be a little more adventurous in the structure next time I submit.
Glad I succeeded with the JRPG vibe. Thanks again for the review!

liked the vibe, interesting array of sounds as well.
i felt it got a tad repetitive, but it's only 3 minutes, so i personally think you did good.
maybe turn the gain down a tad for the synth that comes in at 3:18, that's about it!
4.5/5

I see what you mean about the repetitiveness -- most of my stuff tends to either be a little too samey or too all over the place... rarely anything in between. Case in point, I'm working on a piece at the moment that's similar to this one, but that strays from the path a bit more. Have to see if it strikes the right balance or if it ends up too distracted.
And yep - point taken on the synth at the end. I wanted to bring up the volume a little at the climax, but I seem to have overdone it. Might change that a little and reupload...
Anyways, thanks a lot for taking the time to post some feedback, it was much appreciated!
