I made a remix of MarioKart 64's Mario's Raceway Song. Please Review and let me know how I could've made this better (rather than bombing me with a 0, or 1 vote like many people do -- and then I can never get enough reviews to help me with my music).

Enjoy (if you want). If not, then whatever. I write music and remix because it's my passion (and I think this one turned out great).

Nice job

Awesome job love it!

If it was a little faster it would be 10/10 but I still love it!

This Just Wasn't For Me

Here's my score:
Instrument Blend--- 0/1
Accuracy--------------- 1/1
Clear Concept ------- 1/1
Originality------------- 1/3
Appeal----------------- 2/4

Total------------------- 5/10

Instrument Blend:
The piano just a little to synthesized for me; there are ways to mask it. And the Organ sound in the back was very fitting with the actual game song, but it stood out way too much in this remix. The background should always be the subtle harmony that adds to the song, not distracts you from it.

I heard a couple of strange notes, but I'm not sure if that was intentional; basically it wasn't BLARINGLY obvious or anything so I won't mark you down.

This piece is simple; you can barely here it over the sound of your acceleration in the game. I would've enjoyed this more if there was something flabergasting about it.... it was just a redo.

Other Comments:
Don't get me wrong! I know how much effort goes into making a MIDI piece. I'm just out there looking for something that is new and fresh, and I just didn't get it from this. Technologically this is a well structured piece--but that's just it; music is about power, emotions, that feeling you get jumping off the edge, the first kiss, etc. This just felt like a math equation: Note + Note = Song
I have faith that you'll produce something to awe me.

Pizzaroma responds:

The main piano wasn't meant to sound completely realistic, I used chorus to change it, it actually sounded quite realistic before. What organ? That's a piano, but I do agree a bit. It could be the volume that you listen to, or how you do, so the mixing may sound a bit different.

Also, it wasn't supposed to be meant for gameplay, just listening. It wasn't supposed to be some dance remix style thing or anything, just simply, a "remix." Please try not to set your expectations up like that.

Thanks for your review though, I understand that not every song speaks out to everyone. When listening to this with higher volume I noticed, the song sounds better (and you can hear the reverb better). It actually makes quite the difference. Try listening to it at a higher volume, or not with a preconceived notion of how the song should be. Then maybe PM me on if it sounds better...

I'm not sure how you don't see the emotion in this though? Do you see any emotion in upbeat jazz songs, or other styles of music, or does music have to make your hairs stand up to be able to get a better rating than 5... or is that just how you rate. The scales that people go off on newgrounds are whacked and inconsistent. VERY inconsistent.

Overall thanks for the review though, I do know of some things to fix (although I don't plan on changing the piano -- I purposely made it sound like that because I enjoy the song with that feel it gives it.)
