It's a preview and... REVIEW PLEASE, i need them constructive criticism-sa

OOH! guess what?

I'm singing and playing guitar. Well, i know that i can play guitar, but i personally dislike my voice and really... please tell me if i should let someone else sing.

About the slight inperfections in the vocal melody... I recorded it in one time, and i could record it a million times to get it 100% right but to be honest - I like the touchy, emotional vibrating sound of a voice.

And i hope you don't mind that i sound a little young because.. yes, i am. ; )

I really liked it! :)

Damn good work man, sounds very put together and pro! I enjoyed the feel, and as said it felt pro, but for me that last number of the 10 points is just, the "perfect", and out of this genre, i cant give that. Because ME personally dont like this THAT much. And if i am to be COMPLETELY honest, the vocals may have been slighty off, now, im just being honest!

But as said, i enjoyed it. Your reverse sounds and your immense detail never fails. For me the vocals just didnt quite work, and for me this genre just isnt that "good", im sorry but i do have to be honest!

Its a preview, so ill come with some "tips". work some more on the vocals ;) It sounds like you are holding in, just give it what you got, im sure itl sound 1020410204102 times better! -b Nice guitar playing, your sound is really good there, especially with this particular genre! Nice percussions, your "ace" game is percussions if you ask me.


Keep on working man! L0_oking forward to the full!

Thank you for your time.

Well actually it's all about holding back my voice to make it sound as if it's an instrument more than a vocal line. Anyways... I kinda 'checked' it with autotune, to see what notes were corrected... and none were actually, so i'm fine with the tonal position of my voice, but i can imagine you don't like the sound (:

Thanks for the kind review, and i hope you'll like the song eventually, even if im 'holding in' my voice ; )

Thanks! ; D

Pretty Coolz

Nice but could use a little touching up.
I thought the end was pretty creepy. Nice blending of instruments.
The guitar worked well - but - I think you could change a bit of the water at the start, if you wanted to. Just to make it fit in.

tijnn responds:

Well still, remember it's a preview.

Anyways, the end is somewhat euphoric for me... but that may differ from person to person i guess (:

Everyone is talking about the water in the beginning... But actually it's just some playing with FX to create a scenery. I actually think it already fits quite well.

The flow of the water, representing the flow of the slow, downbeat and easy song. But also, that may differ from person to person. (:

Thanks for the review though!

I liked it a lot

The voice was a bit hard to hear, but IMO it sounded pretty good. I think with a bit of work (either cheat with melodyne, or take a few vocal classes :P) you could have a pretty great voice for this kind of music.

I liked the guitar too, simple, but works great in the song.

The intro was neat, but I wished that it was incorporated more into the actual song. (The water sfx I mean)

Little kid's laugh was creepy :P

Good stuff, keep it up!

tijnn responds:

Ha thanks, i actually don't really like my music so i'll continue to let others do the vocals for me in the future but... thanks anyways, i might try something with my voice sometime. (: At least i'm glad you liked it ; )

And yeah, i really liked the simple melody too... It's so relaxing and subtle.

Anyways - Thanks for the kind review man ; )
