oh man, im loving this loop!
its so badass, nicely organised and it has a really good groove going on...
in short, its a nice guitar riff, and i always love classic-rock style awesome riffs, they make me happy, and i enjoy them alot!

also, the riff gives you the feeling of someone being dizzy/hazy and rocking in a hardcore way, so its a nice track to get someone in the mood for dancing/enjoying the music.

i liked it alot, 5/5, do more stuff like this, perhaps a full song with vocals and with some more rock/blues-style guitar solo's/riffs as well? (because riffs always rule!)

keep up the good work!

Thanks for the review Chris. The idea of this track was to have it sound like it was a slow descent into madness. It's good to see that you got that, re: your dizzy/hazy comment. Glad you liked it.

Cheers gamejunkie.

Really get a feeling of someone who has lost their mind and walking on the street a little bit disoriented and as the loop ends they fall over and pass out. Really odd sounding pattern but it adds more to that feeling of madness and being disoriented.

Thanks SCTE3. Your really scaring me now. Get out of my head. When we finished this track and were deciding what to call it. I came up with 'Slow Madness' because I said I thought it sounded like some poor bastard was slowly descending into a state of madness. I love that you can appreciate all types of music. It makes you a great reviewer if you ask me. You seem to have a great insight into the feeling we are trying to get across to people. Thanks heaps.

Cheers gamejunkie.

Hello. Before I begin, I'd like to note something - I change my rating and judging based on the length of the song too. The longer the song, the greater the requirements for organization and keeping interest. Of course, it changes if the song is looped or sectioned into different movements. But still.

In any case, on to this song.

-The guitar is pretty well-played, and the recording quality certainly isn't bad.
-Tune is nice, has a good peaceful quality to it. ...a bit odd considering you called this 'slow madness', but whatever.

-Sometimes it seems to add or take away a beat or two or three.
-Some of the tunes also seem to go off-key in the progression, which can be a bit jarring until you've heard it about 5 times (well, it took that long for me, at least).
-Doesn't seem like you really worked out what you were going to do beforehand or practiced the idea before recording this - it sounds more off-the-cuff, which is mainly caused by the off-tune/rhythm bits.
-Might want to include more than simple quarter/eighth notes. Simplicity is good, but nothing but on-beat

Overall: It's alright, something I can space out to, but isn't really something amazing or specially good. Could use some more work, some more idea-polishing, and pre-recording preparation. Therefore, I give it a 2.5/5.


gamejunkie responds:

Thanks for the review. So to summarize. This was written in less than 10 minutes, played 3 times and recorded on the 4th play through. The off key stuff is supposed to be like that. This one wasn't meant to be a fancy piece, we kept it simple for a reason. It's just something that we thought could be used in someones flash for credits or something like that. Thanks for the input, much appreciated.

Cheers gamejunkie.
