i never made a cover before and thought that it would be wise to at least attempt a cover...so to my shear amazement my bro talked me into making a cover for the award winning song..."MAD WORLD"..by the "Tears for Fear"...eventually covered by Gary Jules....and finally by me...:P:D....Nehoo....i made this song on Fl....played the piano and recorded it...and made the rest of the instrument..to justify the essence of the song....
And then the final thing was left...the vocals...i would say that i pretty much made justice to the song...but could have done better...
Neways....I'm proud of the outcome....and hope that you guys would also like it.....

IT HAS A NEW FEEL ALTOGETHER....so Hang on!....for the ride to the 'MAD WORLD'....:D....
and oh yes...i forgot....Pls do comment....:P:D...thnx


Pretty good.

I enjoyed it.
And I like the reverb. It makes it sound more distant and lonely it fits the minor key and feel of the song. Though for me it only fits the verses, maybe a little less in the chorus and it would be perfect.

The backing vocals towards the 1:50 mark seemed a bit off, Can't quiet pin it down why, but I think one of the reasons is that the levels are a bit high for them.

The drums fit well, but they are a little bit overpowering for such a soft song.

I have always liked this song and you have done it justice.
Hope the review helped :)


you did a nice job but in my opinion i think a womans voice would have been nice, it would have a better effect with the echo and a softer touch to the song

relay good

im not sure if you could fix this, but it was very echo-y. only complaint.

i think you're right..but the thing is that my pc is like ancient...and the dry recording was really sounding..dry and recordish...u know...so i though of giving it some reverb...and viola..but i guess i should bring down the wetness.......!....thnx neway..man really happy to see a genuine..critic.....cheers!
