Hello NG, here you go, the final rendition of it! :D

I made the vocals louder/fuller, and balanced the song a bit more/made it longer.

Lira also rerecorded everything, because she had the flu in the first one. I think this one turned out much better!

I loved it!

All the way through!

pretty good

If I was rating this for an amateur, I would give it a definite 10, but you seem like the type to strive for perfection, so I'll be blunt. I'll be comparing to the original at all points, so if you were going in a different direction at any of these points, disregard them.

By the way, I don't make music. This is purely from a guy who likes to listen.

You brought the voice in too abruptly. I was listening to a great build up and then the voice seemed to just pop in without any indication that it would.
I'll be completely honest, I prefer the instrumental version of the original song anyway, so there might be a hint of bias there.

2:55 to 3:10 The whole thing sounded too muffled. It sounds energetic, but almost as if you were standing outside a nightclub when the best bit of a song is playing inside, if you know what I mean. This is something I've noticed throughout the whole song. This might yet again be a bias. The original song sounded so crystalline and clear. That was it's hook.

4:00 to 4:30 I was expecting something like this. Yet again I have to mention the muffled sound. I was surprised that although it sounded like a solid end, I just didn't feel that dizzying feel that I usually get around the end of a great vocal remix.

As I said above, I still really enjoyed the song, but as I rate Lira at the level of Hania when it comes to vocals, I just can't give it a higher score in comparison with Moonless Blue (One of the only two songs I bought from Synthetica).

Sorry Kazmo, I haven't heard your other stuff, so I can't rate accordingly for you.
Looks like I'll be spending the rest of the night perusing your stuff ^^

Sorry if this review wanders a bit, I'm good at listening, not explaining things ^^

6/10 evil critique
9/10 otherwise

Kazmo responds:

Woa a real review, nice!

Sorry I didn't realize this was here sooner.

I'm quite aware of most of the flaws you mentioned in your review, it's just I can't update the track because it got quite popular. It won't let me edit it under my Audio Submissions page.

I've gotten better at mastering since this time, so I blame the muffleness on my compression technique and overall mixing.

You should listen to my newer stuff, you may be surprised :P

I strive to become better and better with every track I put out! :D

Thanks for the awesome (evil) review haha


i loved the song completly!! so thats a Happy face =D but..... the outro, where there where the vocals startin repeating, this is a pro outro but it didnt fit the song... they seemed a little off beat from the outro you were trying to make, other than that the outro was fine... Lira Is going places! and im not talking about mcdonalds... She has a Great voice, You are going somewhere...and while u might go to mcdonalds after, ur going to be a very very good dj soon!! soo wen u do dont forget about us newgrounders who support u, and who will probably buy the hell outta ur cds lol

Excelent mix, but

I can perceive that the singer is a little bit tuneless :S

Kazmo responds:

Noone's perfect.


This one has a great beat, the vocals are pretty awesome, thumbs up to Lira!
I also like how you threw in the piano part from Edge of Faith. Nice job.
I liked how you changed it up in the last 35 seconds, made it sound different, and then I like how you end it with the lone piano. That was pretty awesome. Great Job!
