lol, this was another very fun song to make, though frustrating at times. eventually i gave up for two weeks, then got back on and finished it in like an hour, and it sounded awesome!! as always, i'm using garage band (no loops, all keys) and it sort of reminded me of sickness at some points. i can't really say i got the inspiration from the swine flu xD but i did the an idea from an "epidemic spreading that can never be stopped" -.-

comment, criticize, and enjoy ;)

So I said I'd review back.

I'll do simple +'s and -'s

+ Interesting drums and percussion instruments very nice work on varying them

+ I like the pad'd intro

+ Cool hits especially at 1'44" reminded me of the Mortal Kombat theme which is a GOOD thing.

+ Solid length not too short not too long

+ Nice usage of accidentals

+ Like the eerie ending

+ Neither snare or bass is over powering

+ Props for using keys not loops

Kay so..

- Not sure if the last hit at the end was purposeful

- A few transitions need work but most are good

- Get rid of that clap its so generic

-/+ Song lacks a strong melody (all though I see what youre going for kind of a chill atmosphery sound so not a negative or positive just not my style I suppose)

- Again : Change that clap. Its so distracting from the rest of the song. Claps can be great when used like salt.

Overall great piece. Give it an 8.5 outta 10 but i'll round up for ya :D

thanks for the great review! I've been really working on my garage band techniques and fx, and I realize that this is pretty basic. The form is weird and all over the place, and all of the instruments are pre-made. I look back on it right now, and figure...hmm, not the greatest thing i've made. I'm deffinetly going to make another version as soon as i finish the song i'm working on right now. thanks for the awesome advice!

Nice into,,,,

...and stuff. It sounds like it has some sadness in there and then it goes off into a dark sort of beat and then it just gets more dark. After reading the description I guess I could hear this in some kind of zombie movie/game or whatever form of media that deals with an epidemic, but I like zombies. I like all the instruments and how you use a lot of different ones. It's kewl.

lidlurch responds:

Thanks, thanks, and thanks! Yeah, the more i listen to it, the more I think of a dirty town in shackles because of quarantine, and of people in white suits trying to heal them over and over again.

You killd my cabbie

The transition into 2:00 is cool, It sounds like someone walkin around doin a beatbox. Up to 1:00 this is really chill, after that until 1:30 It feels like your on a cross town commute in the shadiest cab on the road. At 1:30, it's the cabbie startin shit with a fight right after. 2:00 minutes is the happy beat box you do as you lean over the cabbie's dead body and stop the ticker while tipping his dead body with the change in your pocket. The rest of the song is your pursuit into the moonlight from a hundred cops and mad cabbie's. Have fun out there you cabbie blugeoning freak! <--haha morbid tale

lidlurch responds:

Believe it or not, i was snapping my fingers at the "beatbox" part.

Eh...wow lol, I've never seen any of my songs that way before..yeah that's morbid...*shivers*


Definitely catchy. The instruments were well chosen, the tunes aren't bad, but there are some arrangement issues. Sometimes things didn't line up with each other, and it kind of made me twitch. Also, The synths and the drums don't seem to be on the same level. They sound totally separate and unnatural. Other than that, very catchy song. I liked some of the catchy percussion tricks you threw in here and there.

lidlurch responds:

Yeah it is really choppy. It's been a long time since i revisited this one, but i'm planning on making it a smooth contrast, you know? I figure it's going to be hard to pull off, but once i get it, i think it will be a one of a kind song. I'll be sure to use your advice ;) thanks!

aaaah sweet

now this is what i like something calm but with a bass/kick behind it real smooth i really like it =D
