I enjoyed this one. It flowed pretty well and while the few breaks and stops of the beat kind'a threw me off, It was a pretty solid song. Toward the middle of it, though, it got a little random, kind'a like a kid with ADD messing with the synth or something. But other then those bits, I'd say that this is a nice song. Great for a club or something, I could definitely get down to it. 8 out of 10 for having the ability to make me bob my head with the beat.
Nothing is ever random.
I loved the intro, felt really epic imo.
At some parts it felt a little disconnected, but overall it was very good. :)
lol good song i love it faved butter tastes good on mashed potatos dont you think?
Sorry for being random, Just got my sugar rush XD
In fact, so good, I'm down only to a few points, mostly nitpicky ones, for this review. :(
The main problem I have with this song is that it's 5 minutes of sameness. It's background stuff. The energy level really doesn't change much throughout, the biggest change is the "melody" later on in the song (though it's just a synth on the offbeat, I actually don't see any one defining melody in here) and the quieter section before it but I still don't see enough of a difference overall. There's very little structure to it that I can find, it's section after section of goa. Well-produced goa nonetheless, but it's difficult to listen to it all the way through (even for me, and as a comparision I listen to 10+ minute trance songs all the time), let alone multiple times. This is the kind of song that gives me a good impression the first time, so I download it to my computer (which I have already), listen to it a few times, but then rarely listen to it after that. And even now it repeats in the Newgrounds player, and I hardly notice. :\
I'm not necessarily asking for a break-build-peak sort of trance structure, rather, I'm asking for defining moments and sections in the song that makes it addicting to listen to - I'm not finding many of those here.
It might just be that this song's not a serious song, or just an exercise, or something you pulled together for the sake of submitting something after you came back (great that you did, by the way). But hey, a review's a review. :P
Other than that, I have very little to criticize on. There's no real melody, the kick has a little too much click for my taste, 4:06 is a little rhythmically disorienting (though that could be a good thing depending on what you were going for), the bassline later on sounds somewhat simple - it's all mostly personal taste. Other than my first point, the song's really well-done to the extent that I can hardly critique it, after all.
Last thing - if you've got the time, I'd like to ask you to review my remix of Paradise on E. Last time you reviewed one of my songs it was really helpful, so much so that you made me reconsider where I was going with my music entirely. If you don't mind, I could use that point of view again. ;)
Nice job with this, keep it up, I hope to hear more from you soon!
Goa is entirely different from "real" trance. If you don't like it, you don't like it I guess.
I was thinking about reviewing that song when it first got on the top 5, but I didn't for two reasons: It's really, really, REALLY long, and it repeats itself a shitload.
Sorry bud, but I wouldn't be able to review that song without going for several cigarette breaks in between. I do appreciate this review, and just PM me when you have a newer song that's up that's a little shorter and I'll gladly oblige you with a review.
so that means infrared would look inverted. idk.
like the shady spots would be yellow and the light spots would be blue.
inverted thermal visors.
i think, meh.
Real good song though.
