So this is just a demo, a few things i personally want to change is the lenght, i made it this long so that i could have an open space where i could experiment with some effect and so on, so the end result will be shorter, also some vocal stuff here and there, and like i've said before, i'm aware i'm not a very good singer, so feel free to speak freely about that, and speaking of the vocals, i tried to make it more interesting, but i can't decide if it sound good or shit, so that's your job to decide.

About the song itself, it's an old song i made for another project, the melody and stuff is something that's been stuck in my head for a long time, so it's good to finally get it out.
The song is basicly about day dreaming, mixed with a good portion of doomsday prophecies.

When recording this i wanted to do something new, and i just happened to have a guitar and amplifier available to me, so the solo guitar in this song is played on a Hagstrom through a marshal amplifier, really nice tone, it's a shame the recording don't pick it up too well, will keep on recording this way as it produced a much clearer tone with more sustain and warmth (IMO)

I've also thought about more parts for this song, as it does become alittle bit repetitive after a while.

And finally, i'll add the lyrics, so you can pass judgement on that aswell:

Sitting down, dreaming away
Looking at people and what they all do
Time is now, no way out
It's the end and we're all gonna die


Look up here, look at the stars
Look at the earth all the way from mars
Let's all jump, into the world
Discover places that noboy's heard

In the end, that's all we are......

aaaah aaaah aaah etc.

I'm not good at writing lyrics, and i'm never really satisfied, so i might change it.

Happy listening, Happy new year, and Namaste :)

Cool vibe

So this was a cool vibe and nice flavor of all this mixture and sound really nice work here and a great sound of works here the vocals are nice too and work well with this back end sound so really nice work here on this one

No changes needed at this time


Wonderful work

This is quite a nice piece, when the lyrics aren't heard you have a feeling of having just gotten over something incredibly harsh and horrendous as well. You just feel a lot better knowing it's over.

Vocals: Really echoy which is OK I guess since it's ambient anyways? Glad you posted lyrics with this.

Guitar: Sounds simple and nice.

Ambience: Sounds really nice.

Overall: Very nice piece of work.

Good music, poor lyrics

Personally, I think that if you're after ambient, you don't need words, save for maybe some sort of high pitched latin stuff from a choir on occasion. The music is good, well paced and well thought through, if a little poor in the quality stakes. I'd suggest messing around with the equalisation, taking the bass out and adding treble, to make it sound less muffled.

Yes, this can be a little long of a piece - I'd have considered making it slightly shorter, by perhaps a minute or two and then looping it, so that it's usable in various flash pieces, since that's a great way to get your music listened to more.

Thanks :)

I agree, but sometimes it's nice to express myself through lyrics, besides, if i ever want to be good at it, i have to "practice"

It will most defineatly be shorter next time around, now that i have a better idea of how much time i need to give the effects the space it needs.

Thanks for the review :)


Bad sound quality, great song

Well, just like with other songs I reviewed from you, the biggest downside of this track is the low sound quality. Sometimes it's hard to make things out properly, but the nice sounds from the guitar and some of the effects kept me interested in the song.

The atmosphere you create with the guitar here is very dense. It creates feelings of loneliness and melancholy in me. Not quite sure if that's what you wanted to achieve, but that's how I feel when listening to the song. ^^

Thanks :)

I guess i sometimes forget that some elements just aren't that easy to hear for people, as i myself know they're there, and that may be the only reason i "hear" them clearly.

Loneliness and melancholy was indeed the emotions i had and was trying to create when making this song, as i found that music with a melancholy feel are the most beautiful and the ones that moves me personally the most, so i guess mission accomplished:P

Thanks for the review :)
