This is the best thing you've done so far, i really like that you can hear it's two different things, but then it melts together

Number7even responds:

Make sure you give Looplover props bro

A few things would help

Love the beginning, a suggestion for the space of cymbols would be to add a few crashes on the cymbol right before the guitar comes in. I think it would add to it and give it a great sound for the guitar to come in on with the same effect of startling volume. The guitar entrances are good other than the first one I was talking about. You should try different sounds with the guitar, try different pedals. I didn't really like how the overdrive sounded with the synth, just didn't jive with me. Also at the end with the strings, they do not fit at all. They just seem completely out of place considering they don't have a part in any other part of the song. Take those out and the ending would actually be perfect with just the piano.

Number7even responds:

Thanks once again! I love the idea about the crashes, I will definitely be implementing that in my final cut. The violins appear for the first time when the overdrive guitar hits for round 2. They play in unison with the guitar track.


you used my loop :)
It is great!

Number7even responds:

I will definately use more of them! You are talented indeed. I have a challenge for you. Try and write one that sounds a little darker

Missing something.

In the first section, the odd clicking synth(?)(actually I don't know what the hell that is, haha) just sounds gimmicky. The transition to the heavily distorted guitar takes too long, the near silence didn't help build the tension (also it wasn't perfectly synced at one part). The part with the guitar could use something else in the background to help fill in the silence within the riff. Good idea but it's missing something.

Number7even responds:

Hey! Thank you very much for your review of my song. I appreciate the time you took to listen to and review it for me. Ok, here's my take. I LOVE that synth sound, man. I'm sorry you don't, but hey differences are what makes life so special. =) I also love the near silence because that took a lot of restraint on my end because I tend to really over complicate transitions. And yes, a much more talented guitarist than myself will be writing a solo in the distorted guitar part. Cool, eh? And finally, don't be so concerned about timing in music my friend, rigid composition makes the music seem artificial and forced. have a good one! I'd love to see your takes on all my other songs =)
