i just had it stuck in my head for the longest time and now i mixed some different soundtracks from it together, ill probably update this one sometime soon.

Sorry mate.

I am going to equate you to the Timbaland of Ng; and that's not a good thing. Like the famous producer in question, you really didn't bring anything new to the track... A new rhythm track, and a few minor fades aren't cutting it... Perhaps I am a bit biased, because I adore Akira's work on the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack, but I still stand by my observation. It seems, you should dissect the track more - and find ways to work in your own flair; instead of pasting a novel drum beat over it. Best of luck.

Thats fine i cant argue your opinion. I didnt want to dissect the track any more than i did cause i wanted to keep that main melody of it, and as i said to the guy right below me, its more about making it into a rap song than just "pasting a novel drum beat over it".

I don't dig it.

Is there any copyright issue here?
I mean, you used many samples from some Akira Yamaoka's song, am I right?
When I used to take just even a tiny sample from a song,
everybody on NG is jumping on me like I'm a fucking plagiarist.

Anyway, to the review now:

Yeah the drums are cool, they suits perfectly the song.
That's what drums are made for.

I heard a flaw at 1:08 and 1:22, the drums fade in is too brutal.
At 00:40 and 00:52, the wah wah effect are cool as well, I often use those effect during some of my songs.

At 2:00, I disagree with the synth's sound used, it has nothing to do with the ambiance of the song BUT I can dig that it's a "Hip Hop" wannabe song.
And to my ears, this synth's tune makes me thinks about Yeah from Usher.

So just adding some drums and wah wah effects to a song from another artist makes me uncomfortable.
Sorry pal, I hope you find my review pertinent.

haywirehaywire responds:

Thanks for the review first of all, i expected that you wouldnt take as many points off as you did take off but whatever. The drum fade in at 1:08 really does not seem brutal to me man, idk what your talking about, and i agree with you on the synths at 2:00. Its not so much that i just added drums and wah wah effects, i wanted to change the whole mood of it to a rap song for people to spit over, and i also wanted to combine my two favorite songs by Akira Yamaoka into one, cause thats another thing that samplers do to make theyre work more original. Also, no copyright issues here, all samples are credited to Akira Yamaoka.


This takes me away to a happy place in my mind. It's very relaxing and has a great beat. Wow man!

haywirehaywire responds:
