Theme of another character of mine, Mark Daphiel Wess. I had a lot of fun while making this one.

Hi. Have another review by request.

The Good:
-The initial bassline is awesome.
-I am loving the piano, especially the subtle fast arpeggios making a neat texture.
-You have a lot of cool ideas. This is a lot less repetitive than the other piece I reviewed of yours, and the mixing is better (though it could still use some work. Same comments apply from the other piece).

The Not-So-Good:
-I don't really like the drumset, mainly because the kick is panned to the right, throwing off the mix's balance.
-The guitar sound coming in at 0:20 is a bit overly strong IMO, there's no particular buildup and it just explodes out of nowhere. It also disrupts the mix quite a bit.
-At the point of the piano, the background synth doing another solo is a tad bit muddy and hard to distinguish from the rest, mainly due to the delay.
-Ending is poo. There's not really any conclusion, it just "ends", leaving the delay to finish it up.

Overall: Improvement is obvious. I think you have potential, just keep working at it! I think that the mix could still be cleaned up, and that the composition could be a bit more coherent. Try using one or two 'main ideas' that can be clearly heard throughout the piece to distinguish it.


Blacklawn responds:

The kick isn't panned to the right o.O

Yeah, I tend to like sudden transitions, but not many people do, so I've toned them down in my recent tracks (this was my 4th composition).

Thanks for reviewing!

I really like the bassline that starts the song off and everything. I'm not sure how I feel about that synth-y thing that kind of sounds like a guitar, the high pitched one. It comes in a bit too abrupt it makes it harsh on the ears. The piano selection was really good, goes well in throughout the song.

Not really a fan of any of the synths you use though, they all sound a bit too cheesy in my opinion, but maybe that was part of the plan. I like the guitar parts when its just the drums and bass with it, it works quite well there, but I think it sounds a bit too cheesy again with everything else. Almost reminds me of Sonic the Hedgehog.

My complainants might just be because of personal preference. Besides those though, it was an enjoyable listen.


Blacklawn responds:

Thanks for reviewing. Oddly, some people actually complained when I took out the synth and left the rest. Can't please everyone, of course.

I'm sure this would be a lot more meaningful if I knew the character that this goes with, but I still like it a lot! With all that going on at once, I bet your number of channels was crazy eh? Good job with the mixing!


Blacklawn responds:

Wow, thanks! Perhaps you'll know him someday when I publish my books (if I'm lucky with that). This track was a bitch to mix because something always felt too loud in comparison to something else (I'm still not 100% satisfied with the mixing, but at least it's a lot better than before, haha)
