It is indeed the time to live
Hey Joseph, this is my log of when I was listening to your song:
0:10 Ooh I like this beginning. Very poppy.
0:23 Nice sounding guitar. Sounds very wobbly though. It sounds like you're changing the filter to an overly rotating formula. If you know.
0:59 Very nice little chimes throughout.
1:08 Again, nice break in drums. It creates a sort of variety that one always underestimates.
1:26 Woah! Very nice bass! You never really see this.
1:38 The bass is a little scratchy though. Nice breaks.
1:54 There's more breaks in the drums.. your claps are very nice. What's that noise that you hear though that sounds like you're scratching your car with a key? It's interesting to say the least.
2:27 Again the guitar is too wobbly. Maybe a little less wobbly would do the trick.
2:45 I like saying 'again' a lot.
2:53 The synthy strings in the background fade and they pan across your ears. Niiiice.
- Creativity/Originality -
Very creative and original. You used a very synthy bass towards the middle which is more used to electro or techno songs, but you pulled it off with aplomb. It was just a teensy bit scratchy, is all. But that's it.
- Soul -
The soul of this piece is very tranquil, nice. Sounds a lot like the chord progression for Pachebel's Canon, but isn't. Sounds very musically sound. I like this sort of groovy song. Rhythm, but more blues, and I like it.
- Entertainment -
Very entertained, trust me. This is my type of song. A break from the generic techno/trance that miind you, I spawn out a lot. Only lately have I got into making funk. You have made R&B sound like a very entertaining and viable option. Thanks it is very ballad-like and fun.
- Professionalism -
The professionalism is abounding, however the guitar was too wah-wah for my taste. Sounded like you used a formula for your changing filter that moved too high a range. You wah-wahed too much, in other words. Might have been better if it had less wah-wah. But overall, your beat had space, your beat knew where the sweet spots were and utilized them wonderfully.
- Reviewer's Tilt -
My tilt is overall very positive. This looks like a very good raving review for you. And it is. I thank you for bringing slick beats to NG and I thank you. The overall feeling of the song was tranquil, and then groovy, and then the rhythmic bass came in and took it away! I've listened to it 3 times now and it still fascinates me. Thanks.
