It has been one long year since my last submission to Newgrounds. Finally 276 Days, 117 Bars, 26 Samples, 9 Synths, and 5 Automations later its finished.

Rate, Review, Download, and Enjoy.



This is the generic, porrly made crap

that is makes the audio portal a shitty place to submit music.

It's bad how untrained your ear is after even a year.

Needs fleshing out

This piece is an assembly of some excellent musical ideas that are all under-developed and awkwardly combined. It reminds me of the NG "collaborative" flash animations, where some stuff is too short to be interesting, and the differences in style but similar theme just throw you off.
You've got two awkward transitions at 0:45 and 1:39 that used a slower drum beat; those parts should last longer because they sounded like cool ideas. And 1:45-2:25 doesn't fit; it's empty so it has no energy, but it's too noisy to be the "quiet part". Either beef it up, or reduce the instrumentation.
Finally, why the one major chord in the last segment? Switching from minor to major is cool, but that's not what you did - you changed *one chord*. It's jarring.
Globally, the separate sections should be more different from each other to give contrast, or more similar to each other to make the song cohesive. I know you put a lot of effort into the instrumentation, but just a little more effort into the music would have made a bigger difference.

First off, thank you for a great review. I don't mind anyone giving me zeros as long as the go into detail on why I "should die in a fire".

I was stuck in a hard place with this song. I had a bunch of great separate tunes and needed a way to blend them together while staying around 3 minutes long.

I was hoping that the transitions at 0:45 and 1:39 would be supported by the main high lead synth.

As for the section lacking energy, I agree with you. It could use more to beef it up. It was a difficult section because that is where the tune change begins.

For the ending I didn't want to drastically change the tune, but instead just give it a different feel. It's supposed to leave the listener with a different feeling from the beginning.

Thank you for the analysis you put into this review. It was very helpful.



I liked this one, even though people are saying that this is a mishmash of effects and stuff, but they kinda fit together :D

Sure, all songs could use some mastering, but this sounds nice as it is!

4/5 :)
