The Voyage Continues.

After going into the "Studio" to listen to my newly mastered song, I noticed that there was Fuck all bass or kick power, So I adjusted a few of the Parametric EQ's

Please do this artis a huge favour and listen to both this version and the other one (It has the same Icon) and tell me if its an improvement, what else can be done to fix it etc...

Also, this song seems to have a lack of.... "Flavour" or "Depth" whatever it is, I cant figure out how to fix it, however the lack of this depth or flavour is really getting to me.
Can anyone notice this lack in the song?
and if so, anyone have any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

ALL Feedback is Appreciated

(IMPORTANT NOTE: due to a lack of feedback;
If you leave feedback, Slap this lil guy at the end of your review "(^_^)"

and I promise to check out a song and do the same!
hopefully this will encourage more people to review and be reviewed.

needs meat

This whole song feels like the frame work for a real song thats not really there.

Your main "melody" which you repeat over and over is largely stepwise, rhythmically even and uninteresting until about 3 :15.

It largely improves after that point, however it's still missing somethings.

As of right now, the song feels largely ambient, without a very solid direction.
It feels like it's building towards something that never really comes.

The reason for this is the song never really changes much stylistically except for that change around three minutes so it feels like it's all "one part" of a song, rather than a whole song itself.

Try changing the instruments that the main melody is played on, make the melody a bit more complex or add a bit of effects to the mix.

There's also very little tension and resolution going on. most of the piece is simply fluttering around, and feels like a collection of sounds rather then a single piece.

Creating points of tension can help create direction.

Also, you add intensity to your background stuff that's going on, which is fine, but yo rarely give the melody the attention it deserves. if you are changing up the other parts and making them more intense/interesting, you end up listening to that stuff more rather than the main line. it takes away from the drive.

I have a couple more things i could touch on but i dont want to say TOOOO much.

To give a VERY brief summary of what i said:

The best part of the piece is from 3:15 until the fade out. You need to make the rest of the song like this, with drive and melody, rather then ambiguity and repetition.

Finally a real review!
for that alone I thank you.

In my description of the song I did point out that the song was lacking.... something.
which is quoted here.
"Also, this song seems to have a lack of.... "Flavour" or "Depth" whatever it is, I cant figure out how to fix it, however the lack of this depth or flavour is really getting to me.
Can anyone notice this lack in the song?"

I really have no idea what to do in order to add more, without actually over cluttering the song. which, I can tells its already borderline clutter.

umm, in terms of the rest of the review I.E. Lack of tension, and resolution.
I'm slowly working my skills upwards, as I still consider myself very amateur at composing.

As for the main melody that is repeated over and over again, is because this is the continuation of "The Voyage" which is the first song, which started and anded with the same melody but reversed.
thats the whole reason for the voyage, its to set the stage with the use of a highly reverberated piano tune.

I might try to add a little more, or fiddle around with a few of my effects to try and add more depth, and try to make a clear melody.

Thanks alot for a reall in-depth review! It is really appreciated!
