Voice samples are too quiet

Sometimes the voice samples are very hard to make out because they are so quiet compared to the music.
Also, the speech at the beginning was too long in my opinion. It goes on seemingly forever, before the song starts.

I think the samples take away too much from the song. It sounds nice, has some very good melodies and the mixing is done in a nice way. But the voices constantly "force" me to stop listening to the music... so yeah, I think you should take out most of the samples and maybe only leave in the sample at the beginning and put in another one towards the end of the song.

imaybe if u had heard the sample better u wud understand.

A strange blend

I really have no idea what to make of the marrying of the vocal samples and the music, which sounded like it should be from an epic tale akin to Lord of the Rings. There could be so much more to this if I could actually hear all of the vocals, but occasionally it gets drowned out by the backing ambience. With that in mind, perhaps take the volume of that up slightly and reduce the music, just for balance. I kept catching snatches of it, but was unable to take it further, which was a shame.

I think that the epic sounding parts of it could have been tempered by some more rousing cymbal crashes, since they were a little on the quiet side. When you added synth / piano into the tune at about 3 minutes, I think that you need to perhaps make that a proper piano and develop this a little more, as such an instrument is worthy of far more than just a cameo.

i havent got a real piano in my arsenal of VSTs :O

1940 Samples? Thats preety cool.

I know you were trying to implement a sort of shaky feeling into the listeners, a sort of feeling that would bring a tear to our eyes, but I thought i twas just a bit to corny for my taste. In my opinion you shouldnt have that sample. It takes away from the harmony of the song and turns it into a corny fest. I think near 2 minutes you should have slowly flown in a trance synth and a trance synth that would make this song COMPLETLY EPIC. You could also add a few more synths.. hell you should add a lot of synths.

All in all, it was a nice listen. You are an underrated artist. Next time you release a song tell me and I will do my best to get you to the top of the week. I know people who would gladly give songs like this the 5s they deserve.

CKC2009 responds:

thanks, i thought the charlie chaplin vocal sample, added nicely to the song, given it a sorta message unlike jsut havin it b epic.

And i didnt add synths cos i wanted the song to be organic or real.. hard to explain.. but u no.

Amazing.....

I have been Wow'd......
Great epic sound.... this should be used for a movie where the worlds about to be smashed by a meteor or the 2012 thing happen... this would be the song for the presidents talk to the world. =) Great! Hit!!!! (Downloaded) =)
I'd write a great song to this if u made it HHM. "Just a thought" ;)
