It keeps the same beat throughout most of the song! What's up with that? Change it up alittle bit, y'know? Not bad, though, nice job.

expect more in the full version! thanks for the positive review


I actually really love this but theres a few things I could suggest. Too much of the sang is drumless. I would bring the drums in much earlier like 30 seconds into the song. Also you could add a beat down section the latter half of the song to break up any repetition. But the sound sound great!

Flared24 responds:

i appreciate the criticism. however, this is only preview. that's the reason why there isn't much drumwork through the introduction

If only it wasn't a DnB

Honestly, this song sounds great. The ambiance is great and full. But the drums are missing for most of the song, and those that are there are fairly unchanging and linear.

In fact, once I realized how unchanging the drums were, I realized that the latter half of the song was a bit repetitive itself. Not too repetitive, just a little.

I guess the short of my review is that it needs more material to flesh the song out, and especially needs more drums. It sounds like you're off to a good start, however, and has plenty of potential, but it needs a lot more work.

Flared24 responds:

clearly mentioned in the title that this is a preview. the full track has more to it. maybe you should've actually read that and checked the description with my soundcloud link before providing me with a six and invalid criticism

nice :)

eh this is a really nice song, but Since its DnB you cant afford to be Drumless for half the song. i would say that shorten the intro and after the drumset kicks in make sure you add stuff so the song doesnt get boring. i would like to hear a 2nd version of this. It has a lot of potentioal

Flared24 responds:

the reason half of the track lacks percussion is because it's a preview, as stated in the title and on my soundcloud


That's all I feel really needs to be said.

Flared24 responds:

thanks for being the first reviewer. don't get a lot of opinions around here. i appreciate it
