This song really makes me think for some odd reason, could just be my rusty insight again. But overall its a good dandy song :)

FairSquare responds:

It makes you think? About what? :P
Thanks for the review!


Frisky.I quite enjoyed this track.It was somewhat adolescent ,but in a fun energetic sort of way.That's why 'I gave it a ten.It's reminds of a staircase climb.But not in that perpetual unbalance off set clumsy unbalanced sort of way.

FairSquare responds:

I'm glad you enjoyed it :-)

Hellagood XD

Sorry it took me so long to review that I actually missed out on two of your tracks, been working on a new song, the WIP of which is already up.

This is a nice song, perfect for a kid's game or a T.V. show.

The best advice I can think of at the moment, and you might think I'm crazy for saying this, but try replacing that guitar sample with a saxophone. That's the #1 advice I can give you.

Other than that, the flute kinda blends in with the synth. However, it occurred to me that the current tuning of the instruments is the best tuning, so this might be the best choice musically.

Which reminds me, excellent choice of instruments. Absolutely excellent.

It gets a little bit crazy after 1:20 because a huge collection of instruments start playing simultaneously. However, that may not be too much of a problem since the guitar is still very audible, which at that moment is the most important instrument.

I believe that sums up my review. The intro and outro is nicely done, mix is good, drums are exceptional as normal, everything is in order. On to the next song!

FairSquare responds:

A saxophone?
I can try that :-)
Thanks for the review!


It sounds peaceful and energetic. Great work.

FairSquare responds:

Thanks! :D

Nice job!

I really like the strings you got here, makes it sound very 'playable'. I can tell where the concept "Kid" songs comes out of this. Nice instrument and vst choices, really enjoyed it, and didn't seem repetitive to me :D Nice job with the drums also, I am not very good at varying that up ;)



FairSquare responds:

Thanks man!
Really appreciate the review :-)
