Album review time:
Overall this album seems to attempt to convey a wide range of emotion, mostly melancholy, while utilizing a perplexing amount of instruments per track. It's pretty dang good quality, and I can tell its the kind of album that would grow on someone after just a few listens. For 1.50$, that's about as much as a soda from a vending machine. Looking at the album's total play time, its about 16 minutes. Presumably because a. There's hardly any repetitive elements or b. the song is just too short/doesn't loop back around often enough to satisfy my feelings of completeness.
Just a few more minor crits I wanna get out of the way.
1. Instrumental confusion/never any gradual transitions that eased instruments in or out
2. Tracks like Revelation(which is definitely my favorite) play out so slowly, setting the mood perfectly, then ending so shortly that its actually kind of disappointing to me because of how much more it could have been. Just left me feeling empty.
In summary I can't hate on this album, but its hard for me to fall in love with it and get attached to it because the songs end before I am able to.
4/5 or 8/10 solely because of instrumental/overall compositional quality and album pacing. It feels exactly like an underground album should, but shorter. only other thing that bugs me is the album cover. its displaying a more intense mood than the music.
Anyways, just do what you can to drag out the songs. Pretty please.
Blueberry Fields is a 5/5 on its own, though. Even though you tried to use harmonics to go back to the chorus and a scratch effect that didn't seem right, the bass and chords were just awesome. It was like a Italian/jamaican salsa dance
Revelations also gets a 5/5 on its own. Possibly the best and most emotional song on the album.
This type of music isn't my forte. But its well done. Never any ear rape/wtf moments so that's good.
Also, I'd have to ask. Are the instruments live? What daw did you use?
