Hey. Wait. Where is the musical story here?
A song is a story, even w/o lyrics. And a successful story must have at least 3 basic elements: 1. A beginning. 2. A middle. 3. An end.
"Shark Tooth", unlike your brilliant "Trying," is simply one long, dramatically flat sequence of sounds. In "Trying," you start with an energetic beginning and between 1:00 and 2:00 you indicate we are nearing some kind of middle "plateau". At 2:00 this middle appears fully and beautifully. It continues for awhile and then "cools off" into your ending. Just so fine!
"Trying" is an example of an intensely satisfying song-story. I'm afraid that "Shark Tooth" is not because it lacks a story's essential dramatic structure.I really don't care if it's "noisy" (but love "Trying's" quiet simplicity) just as long as it draws us into its story and then pays off emotionally. "Shark Tooth" does not pay off. There's no gathering into a resolution. It's flat and, for me, honestly, annoying.
I was kinda hoping "Shark Tooth" would be a musical story of some swimmer ( soft, gentle music) who is caught by a shark (loud, crashing music!) eaten alive, ending up in the shark's belly (sad, somber, "digestive" music) See how there's a beginning, middle and end there?
I urge you to move forward, away from your roots, because you have demonstrated so much more powerful, mature music. "Trying" is an example of a truly excellent
song. You understand how to do that and with that understanding, the sky's the limit for you, Evandro.
Oh, yeah, I see what you mean. The Indian subcontinent DOES resemble a shark's tooth. I've been there. Interesting place.
I hate to rate only four stars. I'm not being mean, just totally honest with a talented musician. I look forward to another "Ten" from you real soon. I know you'll do it. :)
Back to the roots
Well, this one is more similar to the ones you used to produce time ago. While the whole is not bad I think there are some parts that don't match very well together. Noisy? I don't think so, just punchy sometimes. Keep it up!
