Based on the poem by Daniel Fishel:

Tendencies of Fires

It could be simple
It could be quick
It could be tiring
It could be sick
I will not know
I will not go
I will not feel
I will not heal
It could be simple
It could be quick



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I liked it

Besides what admiral poopy pants said this is a very hot track. I here the multiple voices and the angst coming right out of this. I can smell it too. I like the song you have the pain and the emotion of a good indy track.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

it's ok

I'd agree with dj-sleeper about your strokes-like sound with guitar, if you'd played that in a higher octave, it would have sounded like the chorus to "Reptilia", haha. I really like when the bass guitar comes in, cool bassline indeed.

However, I have a few critiques:

1. I'll start off by saying that sleepers review did not come off as condescending at all, and if you can't take a review as kind as that, maybe the music business is going to be FAR TOO INFURIATING FOR YOU.

2. I agree that your vocals are not really in time, though sometimes they are. I also just don't like your vocal melodies. When you actually have a vocal melody, it's too low for your voice.

3. The song is lacking power, it's missing like a bridge building up to a euphoric final chorus release, or something maybe less generic than that formula, but something nonetheless.

Just a few things.

Yeah what you said is mainly true - about the singing especially, although I know the the left and right channel vocals throughout the song don't sync, that's not by accident. The music business would be too infuriating for me, but I have no intention of entering it; I love music, but it will always be a passion that I persue at an amateur level. I really don't develop anything here, but stick to a single main idea, which is what I seem to have more success with; anytime I try to make anything more complicated, it is utter trash. With music, though, sometimes simplicity well done is best ( a lot of Red Hot Chilli Peppers songs are a good example of this ). I appreciate your insightful thoughts on my song, and thanks for writing.
