Final version of this song. I put a ton of work into this. Uploaded for the NG Audio Deathmatch and this will also appear on my album due out fairly soon ;)


Nice work!

Repetitve start, but sets off to great synth work after that. Nice work on background and blend, those are simply amazing. Melodies are slightly repetitive and there were some discordant notes in some small areas. Drums too got slightly repetitve although i liked the use of small variations that you used. Nice work overall.


P.S This is your judging review from NGADM Round 1. I posted it for ya just cos its always nice to have more reviews.

Repetitive beginning

This song starts out very well, with an addicting atmosphere and a good drum line... and then it doesn't change for a minute. At this point we're treated to a new melody, which also doesn't change for another minute. Then we have a breakdown with some really weird chord processing going on that's a bit too random. When you're processing chords in ways like that you always have to pay attention to the beat so that you are strengthening it as opposed to destroying it.

At the 3 minute mark the song really shows off its incredible atmosphere, which continues into a soft and slow ending. This song is bursting with creativity and clearly shows a large amount of work has gone into it. Sadly, a lot of this is ruined by a lack of good melodic structure and the songs extremely repetitive nature early on.

I think you could benefit from some EQing on several of the instruments, a few of which sound like they're being played from behind a wall due to a lack of high frequencies. The overall production ijavascript:submission_controller.Get ReviewController().SaveReview();s otherwise fairly good. Again, the melody is what's lacking in this song.


SineRider responds:

hey thanks for the honesty. I like these kinds of reviews. I do have to agree with you, I didn't focus on melody too much. I'll have to rework it a bit before I release it on my album :)

so chilly ^^ but some beats are a bit shuffled up.. but in the other way it sounds nice!
