Judge Reviews for MusicalSerenity 1-5

Well, what do we have here. September 3, 2006
Entry: Here comes the Tankmen! Overall rating: 9
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. The beginning was a bit slow but after a while... woo boy this piece was doing great.

EXTREMELY original. I loved this. I ALMOST laughed (i'v never laughed from any musical piece in my life except 1)

This was ever-changing, ever-moving into a pshycotic state of retardness. I loved it. This would be a wonderful tankmen theme. This is also a great first piece and I can't wait to see how you do with your own original works.

The only thing that was really a low score was your clarity. Many times sounds could not be heard and some things blended together.

Still, a wonderful piece and it barely dragged you down.

Originality: 10
Clarity/Sound Quality: 6
Diversity: 10
Effort/Skill: 9
Catchiness/Appeal: 10
Overall: 9

Good luck in the MAC6 August Contest. Your definately in my top 3 picks. ^^

Wow man... hehe...thnx a lot for the review. It was very flattering, I'm happy you liked my composition :D

On the clearity issue, I agree, and hope it's something I will get better at during future work.

cheers!

Good. September 3, 2006
Entry: Tankmen--_--(1:26) Overall rating: 7
Hello -Zenon-. I'v seen you around on forums but i'v never really had a chance to listen or review your music now have I? Sorry about that.

Anyways, the clarity and diversity were great. Constantly changing and moving foward... this piece kept you listening.

A nice piece but... not exactly well-thought out and done with time and care. Please forgive me if I'm wrong about that but that's what it seems like.

It's extremely simple... just the dun, dun, dun, dun, in the backround anyone can do. As well as... although your piece was constantly changing, only a simple thing was done. There was nothing at all complex about this piece.

Anyone could have done something similar by sticking in a melody and easily doing everything else.

Then again... the characters of Tankmen arn't exactly... complex now are they ;)

What i'm trying to say is. Although it would be a fitting piece and it is entertaining. It's not the best you could do. You could have done so much more with this and made it a must-have as a theme!

Anyhow, it's fine just the way it is, could be better, but it's good nonetheless.

Originality: 5
Clarity/SoundQuality: 9
Diversity: 9

Entry: Tankmen Attack! Overall rating: 7
Alrighty then. Lets start with diversity. Although changes did take place this piece god kind of old after a while. Yes, it was very fun and very good in the beginning but as i'v said before... it was dragged out and worn down.

I'v seen you on forums but i'v never listened to your music. I have to say I am quite impressed.

The clarity of this piece is superb. Tho', for originality i'v heard similar pieces and there wasn't much new or out of the ordinary in the piece except a few minor things.

I really don't feel Tankmen should have been a technoish piece though. You may be best at techno (i'm not sure) and similar pieces but one of the hardest things about making this piece (which is the reason I didn't do it... i'm to amateur =P) Is that you have to change your style in many cases. I have never done a happy, humurous piece in my life... the closest i'v done is my Piano Sonata but I feel I could never do a decent Tankmen theme.

You need skill, to take what you know and change and totally incorporate it into a new genre of music. I'v seen others do this... but I don't feel you did.

Still, don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful piece. Just not suitable for Tankmen I think.

Originality: 6
Clarity/SoundQuality: 10
Diversity: 5
Effort/Skill: 5
Catchiness/Appeal: 6
Overall: 6.4

Good luck in the MAC6 August!

Entry: The Tankmen Are Coming! Overall rating: 8
I liked it. A very original piece I think... especially next to all the other Tankmen submissions.

It could have been more diverse I think... from middle to end I kept hoping that something new would come in. I know new stuff did happen but the same tune stayed and was dragged until it wore down and died.

Overall, you did a good job here and I really liked the transition you made.

Entry: Tankmen Overall rating: 8
Excellent job here. It was extremely clever and original to throw in those Tankmen lines. Although the piece was somewhat repetitive it still changed enough so that it would not get boring and of course, those hilarious lines kept you listening.

Everything was great for this piece. And I feel it has an excellent chance of winning.

Originality: 9
Clarity/SoundQuality: 7
Diversity: 8
Effort/Skill: 8

Good luck! I think you have one of the best chances out of everyone to win! ^^

Triskele's Reviews.

Syntrus - Major Heart On

One standout in your tune is the progression. Not exactly revolutionary, but as it's a themesong, the way in which you introduce several theme variations very quickly is quite nice. Also, the heavy, echo-y kick is perfect. Problems arise in the levels and mixing though. There is some pretty heaving clipping in some of the most important tracks of your song, and the cymbal is just plain annoying at its current volume level. Moreover, though the beat is interesting, the melody is boring, quite frankly. Extremely generic techno line. You've got a great idea going here, you just need to develope it further. Keep up the good work.
62.4%

Deflektor78 - Tankmen on breakfast

Wow. This is a brilliant piece of classical composition. The progression, the theme variations, and the very distinct sections are very nice. There are two BIG problems though. First of all, I can't help but feel that this really isn't suited to the style of the Tankmen series. It's too low-key and unassuming for the rowdy manner of the movies. Also, the instruments are HORRIBLE. They are FAR too MIDI-ish. You need some new samples, my friend! Otherwise, great work. Keep it up!
68.6%

General_Leo - The Fall and Rise of a Hero

First of all, very nice intro. Real-sounding instruments for the most part, and it moves quickly into the main section of the tune smoothly. Personally, though this is a very serious-sounding piece, I feel it resonates with the themes of Tankmen in an ironic way...kind of a sarcastic tribute to the "brave" "warriors." My main problem is that there is little diversity. A few more variations of the main theme would do wonders. Also, the piece often feels a little sparse. There is a definite lack of depth in some of the main section that could be easily remedied by a few more instruments. Otherwise, excellent work. Keep doing that thing you do!
72.0%

Bad_Man_Incorporated - Bad Man Tank Thing 1

Very nice mix of techno and metal. The tune is catchy, and the drums are pretty well done, but it seems a little sparse. The bass could definitely stand to be cranked a bit, as well as the kick. Also, it's a little short, even for a themesong. A few variations on the A part would do wonders. Great work though, probably the best match of the Tankmen movies thus far!
73.8%

Darkside_555 - TANKMEN (bombs away!)

Brilliant. Yeah...that's basically all I have to say. The inclusion of quotes from the flash means extra brownie points for you, and the sound effects are great. All in all, a PERFECT match for the Tankmen series. Only suggestion - Needs a bit of a bass boost for true rock pwnage. However, you've really got it going in this one. Keep up the awesome work!
90.7%

RiftMaster - Tankmen

The intro is ridiculous. You could definitely do away with it. Too dramatic. The main section...hmm. You've got the playfulness going a little bit, but it's too "family friendly." And when you introduce the rock elements, it gets a bit too hardcore to really work out. Basically, I feel this is a pretty disorganized, unsatisfactory piece. It's really not coherent enough for a theme song. Better luck next time.
5.3%

Anth0n - Battery Power

First of all, I want to make it clear that this song is excellent. The distortion is really nice, the intro theme is nicely morphed throughout the piece, and the fast breaks are really groovy. Sadly, I don't really feel that this matches the style of TANKMEN very well. Too edgy and hardcore for the hilariousness of the flashes. Still, really excellent work! Keep it up.
79.7%

Chronamut - vortex

Nice track. Pretty generic metal, but it works pretty well with the theme of tankmen. However, you've got your own weakness pinned: Your samples suck. Hard. If they were fixed, I think you'd have something pretty damn good, but as it is, it's kind of hard to get past the crappy tones. Still, great work as always.
67.4%

kliff - my submission to tankmenn

Ok, so...nice composition for the most part. some slight issues with the chord progressions, but forgivable, and the playfulness is fitting. I actually don't mind the piano as a solo instrument, and I think this might fit well with the series...if it was better quality. Yep, it's obviously the piece's major downfall, and it REALLY ruins it. Fix the levels and do a direct connection to your computer, and you'll be dandy. Good work.
56.4%

John_Floyd - Take my Tank...Please

Fun for a kid's cartoon, but really not appropriate for Tankmen. The arrangement and composition is fine, but everything is WAY too MIDI sounding. You need some new samples and a little more edge. Keep up the good work.

i missed the show, hopefully i didnt sound too much like a tired ass...who am I kidding, I KNOW I did.

anyway, I recorded my reasoning for not saying what my definitive top choice was - frankly because it's a combination on a few that I liked and I plan to use many of them in something tankmen related. I explained this mostly in the audio review if you go check that out.

thanks again COCK JOKE
