Here's a theme song for one of those old detective noir stories. It's still just a loop but it's likely I'll extend it into a full song. If you vote, leave a review saying why you scored the way you did and if you give a low score, gimme some constructive criticism to work on, tell me what I can make better and don't be childish. Other than that, Enjoy!

An Amateur Noir Review of a Excellent Noir Song

It was a cold day in January, the kind of day which makes the entire 'Net shudder with the dead breeze of e-fame. I logged onto my computer, clicking past the overdue bills for months of internet usage, when suddenly, an audio file sauntered right out of the speakers. It was the kind of file that makes a man want to believe in fate again, with its smooth saxophone tones, and saucy beat. So I decided that the bills could wait, and listened to that fine file play.

(Excellent song, by the way. Made me want to write noir, as you can probably see. The only thing that was a bit grating was the drum and cymbal track keeping that constant rhythm. Maybe something a little more syncopated/asymetric next time?)

CarlTheVoiceactor responds:

Nice story you got going there! That's exactly the kind of style and feeling I was going for. I like your idea for the drums too, I think I'll remix this into a longer song and see if I can use an asymetric beat for something different. Thanks for the review! Keep on listening (and writing noir stories)!
