Synth lead is great, I wish the bass beat had more punch but that's just because I'm a fan of hardcore.
your sounds are mixed perfectly, drum samples fit well, very original and not repetitive. Great job.
good rhythm, but...
definitely calls for a deeper bass line
otherwise, not the Most original song, but props for good execution!
this song is sick
hard to believe this has been out since 2008 nad hasnt even been rated, especially since its better than allot of that shit thats consuming newgrounds.
anyway you did a sick job with the drums/cymbals sounds. try adding more bass drum sounds to your songs in the future
For a genre I don't care much for, this isn't half-bad -- in fact, I enjoyed it, which completely surprised me.
As I listened to the song, I didn't really go for the synthetic sound you had at the beginning (the beeps and boops), but as soon as you brought in the strings as a background at 1:07, things just started to go up. You moved away from a traditional mediocre dance song to an impressive mix of genres, and for that, I loved it.
During the more string-part that started at 1:07, the beeps and boops sounded a ton better with a more traditional background -- however, the 1:44 odd sort of cymbal/drum/synthetic stuff didn't do it for me (it lasted about ten seconds as a transition). I enjoyed the more traditional sounding drums at 2:00 though.
This piece shows that you have true potential -- I'll be looking to see it the next time you submit.
Thanks for actually taking the time to write a quality review!
I personally think the beginning synth is pretty cool (I made it myself), but to each his own.
And yes there will be plenty more on the way!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
