PFT WHAT SORT OF FAGGOT WOULD MAKE A FAGGOT SONG LIKE THIS. THERE IS SO MUCH FAGGOTRY IN THIS SONG I CANT EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE IT.
I enjoyed this track mainly because it had a nice progression to it, and I love progressive personally. It was the usual generic stuff you hear now a days, although sometimes there isnt anything wrong with generic. I think its really cool that if you listen to the #1 song of the week on the audio portal main page and let it continue down into the #2 song, they both tie into eachother very well. It is kind of like a classic Tiesto buildup. *RIP Tiesto* I wish that the song could have had a bit of mastering in it,which was really the only problem. Mastering, however, is a large problem! Not mastering can sometimes ruin the listening experience. There are parts there that are to high in volume such as 1:55 - 2:20. Plus, that part really disrupted the song from its normal balance of progressive trance. It really turned it into a hardstyle without hardstyle qualities.
Basically, the best advice I can give is that when you make your pads / synths, make sure they sound good with headphones and speakers. If they hurt the ears a bit, have to high frequencies *such as the pad that comes in at 4:50* then do not use them. Do your best to make pads and synths that sound EARGASMIC, pleasant to the ears. :)
Lol spik. You crazy Dubstep bro. This song was very strange. I liked the strangeness of it though. It is very original and different. You used a lot of different sounds, programming, and glitching in here. I loved the part after 1:50 that was so cool the way you distorted the sounds. The percussion in here, as Dj-Nate says, is very well done. Personally I do not like industrial, although am impressed with your mixing and mastering abilities. Keep it up bro.
One thing I noticed right off the bat was that your percussion was to loud and cracked a bit, distracting me from the chill like atmosphere of the song. I enjoyed the singing and thought all the instruments were played very well, however. In my opinion, that percussion should be changed to a mellow background beat instead of a lead. Remember to pay attention to what instruments are leads and which ones belong in the background. Percussion is rarely used in the foreground. it takes skill to play all of that, so remember to mix it together well.
There was a lot of things going on at once in this song. So many things were going on that it seemed to peak at some points, but you managed to keep it steady. The bass at 2:14 was very well done, although I noticed some crackling in there, so make sure to change that. This seems to be around 160KBS if im not mistaken. Very trancy with a well done mix.
