This song is really good and beautiful. From 3:01 to the end of the song is just beautiful--the piano melody and the chord progression in the background are just stunningly ear-pleasing. I wonder, though, why this is classified as House, since the BPM resembles that of trance to me. But oh well, good song.
Haha, the song has a tempo of 135 bpm, so it's along the "faster" house tracks. Now that I listen to it more and more, I don't really feel that it's house though. Probably because people have kept telling me that it doesn't sound like it. Not much I can do now. Thanks for expressing kind comments. It made my day (especially the part about the ending of the song :) )
I love this.
Reminds me of xKore a little bit for some reason :P
Also that reverse reverb is a really great touch.
Keep this up, your songs are amazing. :D
DL'd for sure :D
Doesn't xKore do more Dnb? Anyways, thank you so much, and I'm happy to hear that you noticed the reverse reverb. Cheers!
a relaxing yet fairly energized song, most are just trying to be completely relaxing and just bore the crap out of me, this one kept my attention, very nice!
Yeah, I'm still learning and experimenting, but this was definitely one of those tracks that I put a lot of creativity into. Glad you liked it.
00:21 I like that effect, really brings the beat into place.
00:41-1:04 Great buildup. Everything is adding up to something...
01:01 The way the chord changes is great. I like how it pulls away from the
01:36 Woah. Awesome breakdown. The song almost goes down to near silence, yet maintaining a beat. Really nice job here. Though it didn't really build up much energy before breaking down.
02:03: Hmm. Going a different direction from what I expected, huh?
02.04: Back into the beat. Yea!
02.04-02:31: Once again, tension is rising. Something awesome is going to happen!
02:31 Neat little piano melody here, it's great.
03:29 Really cool. The part I was really waiting for. All the energy in this song just flows through here.
4:26 Crap. It's ending soon. =/
Overall, it's another masterpiece you've made. Honestly, I find your other song, Unfortunate Truth slightly better, but this does show what you can do. Great progression, nice house beat and bass, and nice chilly piano do make a good song.
Actually, I find the main synth a bit weird, it sounds choppy in a way, but in another way, it does complement the house beat really well. And the sweeps, they really enhance the progression, you really have a way with them. They just appear at perfectly the right time, and really draws the listener's attention to the progression.
I can't find any flaws in this song, it's almost perfect. Perfect ten to you, and great mix of trance and house in this song.
Oh, I don't think I can hear the reverse reverb piano, despite listening to this a couple of times. Maybe my headphones aren't that good, or it was overpowered by the rest of the instruments.
See, I told you that I'd get around to this. So from the timed comments, it seems that you liked the song. I did a shorter intro because it's for ng. I personally prefer longer buildups that, as you commented on, build up more energy. The song could also have a more complete outro so it doesn't feel like it ends so suddenly.
Again, I'm still learning. I have focused really heavily on basses lately, and I'm where I want to be with them, but I'm still lacking on leads. The other thing is trying to get them to sit well in the mix, especially when using high freq percussion as I do.
The reverse reverb is a subtle effect that's most noticeable at 3:00. It's easier to hear with increased volume. It basically is a reverb that swells up into the piano right before it's played.
As always, thanks for the great review.
