Pretty good overall. But, I have to say, it is FAR too repetitive and "wub, wub, wub, wub, wub, wub..."
I have to agree with the bit about the guitar. While it coming in suddenly isn't bad, the fact that it just goes and goes, then stops so abruptly makes me, at least, and probably several other people think: "What just happened?" It kind of hurts. Same thing for the ending. It just stops dead in its tracks, like suddenly a brick wall appeared in front of the music, making it smash into the wall and fall to the ground cartoon-style. That's what it makes me think of.
I also think the bass and drumbeat could have a /little/ variance. I mean, really. It's just the same thing over and over again. Yes, it has a pulse. No, it is not as fun when it just stays like that the whole time.
Overall, very atmospheric and well-mixed, but... a bit boring. Doesn't really make me feel "fulfilled" if I were wanting music.
Yeah you're correct about most of this. I think we got excited about the beginning and then totally ran of inspiration. Stopping the reverb did basically what we wanted it to do and that is to catch the listener off guard. I think we hoped that it would grow on the listener, but now I'm not sure. Thanks for the review, I think it would be best if we retooled this song a bid, maybe streamlined it
Really chill :D
The only thing that made you not get a 10 from me was the fact that certain elements just seemed to begin and end whit no real build-up/closure, like the guitar that just seems to happen without there being any indications of it starting and how it just abruptly ends.
I know its an ambient track (and a good one too), but try to let elements "Ring out" to prevent sudden changes in tone like what happens @ 02:25, the abrupt ending of the pad and guitar might make some listener uncomfortable.
Otherwise a well-done track and i hope to see more from you!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
