It's good. Not perfect, that's for sure, you probably don't need me to tell you that.
I am making a promise with myself that I would never criticize somebodies voice unfairly as they can and will only get better with time, however, I will say, there wasn't enough variation in melody. The last verse could have been done a lot better, vocally. When the "Distant Serenity" line was sung, I felt a LOT of holding back. There's nothing to lose, rock the mic like it's a casbah.
Bass was not heard enough, and could have been improved dramatically. I'm gonna disagree with the other reviewer, the instruments could have done much more. The guitar was slow and unmoving, not powerful as it could have been.
Lyrically, I'm not a fan of the kind of writing, for personal reasons, but I'll ignore that. The lyrics are well written and recorded, and I will not take marks from that.
However, there is so much room for improvement over a month, I'm gonna have to ask you to redo this in a few months, because I really want to hear it. This could be awesome on this site. Keep up your good work!
PS: If you're looking for a nice mic, Behringer are really great quality and value.
thanks for the review! yeah theres actually a lot more i want to do with it and i just havent yet...and i agree about the not enough variation in the vocal melody...we recorded it yesterday and i was sick as a dog and wanted to go to bed lol...ive got a friend of mine writing a new bass part to it as we speak and seein as he is a bassist can prolly make it more noticable from the guitars...also ill be sure to mix it slightly louder next time around...again thanks a ton for the cconstructive criticism....i really enjoy hearing what others have to say
Not bad, lyrics are well written.
However the actual singing seems off, I suggest a re-record of the voice, maybe with some better equipment, or some editing.
Pretty good though, the instruments are perfect.
thanks a ton for the review man...yeah a lot of it will depend on getting an actual studio mic in order to really get into it...just using the onboard mic on my recording device
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
