man it just makes you feel good about what your hearing i cant explain it it is totally awesome!

well, here's your first review

Here's what I think of your song.

The first word that comes to my mind is hypnotizing...
let's go into more details:

pads: this is the thing that struck my ear the most. I am not sure what to think of it. I find a bit weird when it goes low-high-low, but at the same time, it's like I said before: hypnotizing...

drums: Another thing that struck: I'm not an expert in ambient, but I'm pretty sure drums aren't common in ambient. BUT, it does bring a nice feel to it. I think the song would sound dull if it wasn't for them, although it does make it feel more of some kind of soft rock-ish song...

Synths and voices: again: hypnotizing, I don't know what else to say...

Overall: it's a really good first try I must say. You ventures marvelously into unknown territory, way to go!

keep up the good work ^^,

Dj-UnKnOwN responds:

i originally wanted this to be a hiphop song and i had it under the hiphop genre when a friend told me that it's more Downtempo than anything else and that makes a LOTT of sense.. it's definitely not meant for vocals i think it would ruin the whole feel of the song.

Thanks for all these reviews man i'm really grateful for the constructive feedback!
