This is my entry for the madness day 2008. It's pretty early, but due to my inability to make improvements with it, at the current time, I'm going to submit it. Still learning about making music....
Enjoy! Vote n review or w/e.

First you need to increase the pitch of the shotgun sound so it doesn't sound like crud, then add a lot more instruments. You need leads, supports, bass, percussion-ahem-more percussion, harmonies, and some other random crap to spice it up.

Great for a madness flash.

I liked how you used the shotgun for the start. nice job man.

Very distored; boring.

This really isn't all that great, all it is is one synth and some not very special drums for most of the song, and that one synth sounds very distorted to me. You need to really cut down on the distortion, and try and produce "cleaner" sounds. And as an idea for the drums, you should throw a loud, powerful snare in there or something, because the set of 2 different drums is just not enough for most music out there. The bass synth at the end sounds pretty distorted too, and I didn't like the sound of it or the melody it was playing at all.

The song itself was pretty boring too, just the synth playing some notes for a while, it seems. Throw some variation in the melody played, instruments used, stuff like that. It is absolutely important that you find and use new instruments / sounds, so you can make more interesting music.

People find this review helpful!

Yes, yes, quite true indeed... If you read what I wrote, you might've gathered that this is probably going to suck and you would've clicked the red X on the top right immediately.
Yet, here you are, patiently listening to this ... not-really-music. I thank you for the review and advice. It's good to hear honest feedback that actually makes sense.
I've been trying to figure out a way to fix the distortion for ages - 2 minutes :p - and came up with nothing. If you are a musician, which you probably are, you'd find that it's really really REALLY hard to find good quality drum samples, made harder yet the fact that I've just started. Same goes for the instruments, I have no idea on how to make the sound I want and the presets just aren't close enough to what I'm imagining. I end up making something that is absolutely the opposite of what I've planned out to make, kinda depressing.
Anyway, it's not your job to listen to my boring, depressing stories and all that crap.
Thanks for the review, probably one of the best I've received so far!
