92% of people only rate 0 or 5
7% of people actually use the numbers in-between and think about their vote
Then there's the lonely 1% of musicians and listeners who actually comment, criticize and/or use the forums.

That's a 1% chance someone will come along and say,
"Hey! this is ok, but you didn't do right, so here's how you fix it"

I personally think this song deserves a rating of 3,
But as of now, I don't know if anythings really wrong with this song.

Unfortunately, that 99% will actually be offended by me saying this, even though I read it on the forums.

Updated: thanks for the critique, If there's anything I missed or more critique needs to be applied, let me know.
As for the tempo, the filter wobbles are tempo based, but they increase in depth when the tempo is raised, I decided it would be better to keep the emotion of the bassline going with the slow pace.
I've also considered a fourth instrument for melody, I'm out of time to work on it more at this moment. But I'll look into it more.
Feel free to pm me and thanks once again for all the help you've given me. I just hope I interpreted what you said correctly.

Nice example

this is one of the better dubstep examples kicking around on NG, I do like my dubstep but havent put a lot of effort into making any personally .
I think if you put a little more time into this track and it had a little more progression it could be something special!
one other little thing your kick sounds a little to "clicky" to me I dont know if that was your intention or not but a little more beef and I think it would fit better.
Overall a nice track with some nice bass hits!

There's some beef, you just need a carving knife to find it :/

Gotta pull out my chemical engineering and keep modifying my skills and abilities.
I might come back to this song in like a year or two.

Overall nice, still needs some work though.

The wobble was pretty nice here. I also liked the synths at 0:49.
There is a problem though. It really sounds high pitched. For example, the kick is fairly short and hollow, while it would be better to give it a more punchy sound, to get more of a dubstep feel. The high percussion, too sounds a bit high pitched. Perhaps a slight filter or a simple hihat pattern to replace it would please the listener a lot more. I would recommend a nice punchy kick and a good firm snare (not too loud), to make the song stronger in structure.
I'm not sure if you tried to make it dubstep, but for dubstep it needs to be around 140bpm. After some listening I think yours is about 120. If the structure of the wobbles will be affected by, then I would just leave it at this tempo.
So I would give the kick a good punchy sound, replace the clap with a firm snare (or clap) and filter the high percussion (or replace it with a good hihat pattern).

It would perhaps be nice to put in a main melody, to give it more of a song feeling, but that's up to you, it's not necessairy.
The wobbles and synths/pads are nice, it just could use some work.
Keep it up! :D

RawGreen responds:

Wow! This review is great! I'll get to work and fix it up right away :D!
