Nice Work

This is a pretty well-done cover of NIN, and the vocals I hear from you only get better. Keep it up, and as I said in another review, practice more with it. As far as I can tell, you'll only get better at it.


Usually I'm a fan of your songs, but I don't quite agree with this one.

The original song Closer is rich with angsty, mind-probing tunes, but apart from hearing the most direct, flat tune in your piece, the rest of the tunes are gone.
Also, most of the nice parts just don't fit metal, and sound great just the way they were in the original.

The guitars were awesome as usual, which earned you this 5, and I don't really blame you for losing the other 5, I just don't think that Closer should be metalized.

Good job

There are a few issues i had. This song was more about how the sound fits together (at least for me). The beat in the drums are meant to stand out a sort of "pop" in your face. There should have been more diversity in the guitar sounds so we could hear the individual build-up parts a bit easier. The vocals seemed a little forced, and like there trying really hard to be Marylin Manson, as well as trying not to sound like them. (It makes sense to me i don't know if it does to anyone else lol)

Really other than those issues, i liked it, was an interesting version of the song. =3

I understand what you mean but I wasnt trying to do the original version I wanted a more structured metal song. As for the Manson thing not trying to sound like him or not, that is just my natural voice.

Somewhere, right now....

Trent Reznor is smiling.
