This is probably one of my favorite pieces I've ever made. It's an upbeat trance piece with piano, strings and lots of synths.

i really like it

Mismatched sounds

As for the song itself, it sounds too disjointed and unorganized, and the sounds don't seem to fit well together until about 2 minutes in and even then it still sounds odd. The transitions are sudden and oddly placed, and overall it just seems messy, as one might expect from a song that was forced through in a day.

The mastering was good however, as is with most of your music. This particular one just didn't quite catch my attention though.

As for your project to release a song every day for the entire year, good luck, hopefully the creative essence sticks with you!

Michael425 responds:

Yeah I agree that a couple of the transitions could have been a bit smoother. As for it being forced into one day, I actually worked on this track for a few days. My project is just to release a song a day; not create/release the same day.

Thanks for the review though. I appreciate it. Hopefully I can keep the creativity coming.


ya know

if you send each one to me ill be sure to review each one and cheer you on along the way

i cant imagine making a song every day

try not to milk yourself dry of creative juices

its part of the reason why a lot of mainstream music isnt as good anymore

i like this song its calm but it still moves quite a lot

it puts you in that feel good mood

Haha thanks for the support man. I'll try not to run out of ideas. I'm hoping this project will do the opposite and give me more ideas. We'll see.

Thanks for leaving a review. I'll make sure to keep you updated.


Hey buddy

Everything about this piece just feels really good and yet just some really simple things missing. I'm feeling afraid you might be sacrificing quality for time but let me get down to what I want in the song and the positive things too.

The Piano part is amazing I love it. However when you stop and start playing the one note to build tension I either think you need a tempo speed up and slow down to get back to the speed you want for the song OR if you have the ability to slide i dunno an octave up or something with that note at 1:35ish. Another thing is when you pop out of that tension the melody with nothing else feels real unfinished to me. I dunno if you should add an echo to it or a followup in it until you reach the other part of that piece. It doesn't need to be an extreme echo just more of a background feel instead of a hollow precipice. Lastly, The end sorta cut off with a gentle stop but left me wanting a bit more. This I don't know what to add but a little bit more of something. Maybe a small build up to end it. Other than that it's a good song but I feel like the same tempo kills it a little but well done Micheal hope to hear more when I am able to.

You make a lot of good points here. I'll take them all into consideration for my next songs. I actually thought about adding another buildup on the end but didn't want the song to get too repetitive so I left it out.

Thanks for the great review.


cool idea!

you could add some stereo panning to the pad, and mabee add some white noise in a later track.

Michael425 responds:

Thanks for the ideas. I should definitely add more panning. I haven't done that much lately.
