LiquidOoze - So Good (Original Mix)

Made for the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2013.

This year, the same happened as last year: Step informed me that I was to replace someone in the first round of the NGADM '13. Luckily this year, I had more time to work on my submission, and here it is! It's also a little surprise for my girlfriend. :)

Hope you guys like it!

- NGADM Round 1 Review -

The general melody you've got going on is a fine one; however, it basically rules the song. The entirety of this track uses the same melody over and over, and quite frankly the repetition is terrible. At 0:52 when the drums come in I expected a change, but...nothing; it was somewhat fuller, but just as flat. The song is unfortunately very weak because of this. The beat does not help the generic feel of the song, and keeps it on the same level for nearly all four minutes. While you lost major points here for that, your production was not bad, although your drums did sound a bit choked. I think with even some simple variation in melody, this track could be significantly improved.

Score: 5

This is an NGADM Round 1 review.

--

Like always, your sounds are well-chosen, and you've got great production here. Apart from that, there's the classic EDM buildup leading to 0:52 which was well-executed (along with a sweet drum fill that was even used later in the track to round it up nicely), and I like that you put a twist on it by introducing an even more powerful part at 1:22 when generally people just build up to one powerful part and leave it at that. Great effect to transition with at 1:52, by the way. This is all solid, well-produced stuff, and the main hook is decently catchy too.

But dammit man, it has happened again! This is too repetitive; your audition was great (even better than this I think) but it was too repetitive, making you miss the top 64 by a scrape, and here the repetition is even more present. I understand that repetition is almost a key factor in this genre, as it's made to really engrave the hook into your head, but it really maximises the predictability of this track, and dumbs it down a little too. I think it's perfectly possible to stick a melody into someone's head without repeating it to no end in the track. Also, the track can get a bit generic at times. While I think you chose your sounds nicely, some more unique-sounding synths could really take this track places.

Anyway, the repetition is a huge problem because if it wasn't for that and a few other minor issues I have that aren't really worth mentionioning, this would've been a solid track. You get bonus points for your production skills though!

Score: 7.2/10
