This song i'd made last year, and i edited it, and made a whole bunch of changes to it.
And got rid of the LONG introduction. And just generally edited it overall and mastered it better.

Made last year for the girl i love...
Who's now left me :(
So this song is for her.

My whole heart went into this song to make something beautiful for her.
So please review and vote fairly!

You got it!

This time I have no problem with the song. You got everything down perfect, and I love it! ^^
I hope to hear more like this. Keep it up!

not some of your best work

but still even though it is good

It was OK...

But, somethings really needed redoing in my opinion man. The use of the filter was cool, and sure it had a nice lil melody, but there was like zero development throughout the song. You through in all your best cards right at the beginning. Sure you died down to the pad halfway, but live i don't think that would really cut any mustard man. Mainly because musically peaking you stuck with the same octave being played at the heart of the piece throughout. For this reason I call it samey, not because there is repetition of a motif, or because there is a repeated melody or synth but because the way this song operates tries to keep every part incredibly smooth. How manyy times have you heard a dj throw in a break, a cut down, a filter to just bass or drums? It is this which in my opinion seperates the boys from the men, the bravery to leave space in the words of Jim Mullen.

A lot of the stuff you quite evidently spent hours over sounded cool, but seriously, you have to give peoples ears a surprise or they just wont remember you, they'll vote high, get picked up then just leave forgetting the song, live people wouldn't wanna scream, they might just stick to the walls to be honest. Still, if I'm gonna vote you down I'll tell you what might of made this completely awesome, as it quite clearly has all the structure and melodic potential.

1) Maybe play the first few notes of the melody over on their own at the beginning.

2) Try sampling hooks into breaks. You can search loop libraries for vocal samples, just little lines like Shirobon's trademark "WE LIK BRK", or the infamous "ALL UR BASE R BELONG 2 US". This could just give people something to get yelling.

3) Around 1:34 try just whacking up a sequence of root notes on the bass and hits on the bass drum, mess with the filters a little, just mess with it.

4) Maybe around 2:04 just cut to the last notes of the melodic line on a treble cut.

This would get you a ten for me, but whatever you wanna do.

Love & peace.

Finally! A review!
Thanks so much for the effort to write this!
Its points and tips like this that help to make songs brilliant. I mean, like when you listen to your own song, its hard to find areas of criticism, cause like whatever you make - to you it sounds good right?
So thank you for the advice!
I will do some more work to this and let you know once its been edited.
As ive said, this is an old song, and the editing done was better EQing.
Thanks you a million for the advice and review - I really appreciate it!

When/If i redo this i will give you a shout and let you know!
Once again, thank you :D
