Love the soundscape in the intro! And then when the music starts, it's really well produced and dark and odd. Doesn't quite sound like Despery though. More like melancholy, close enough I guess! This is a really song, cool but weird vocals, the drum sounded splendid, the piano added a lot and there were lots of additional sounds that added a great layer of cake to the song. Really good. Yeah the only point you lose is not conveying that much despair or misery.
Thx for the review!
This is right trippy, man. If misery went on an acid trip through the 60s, this is definitely what it would sound like. I especially like the very dramatic ending; that's an appropriately creepy music box progression you've got there. I also think that the drums sound pretty darn good. Did you sing the lyrics? They words themselves are pretty catchy, but I did think it sounded kind of nasally. Eh, maybe it's just me. Good stuff, mate!
OMG man this is so nice song i feel like i am in heaven !!!!
Freaking sweet, bro.
Awesome song man. Looks like I got competition now. >:)
As for the mixing - your bass and drums mash up with the vocals a bit. I'd try cutting off the high frequencies of the bass and raising the mid-high frequencies of your vocals. Also, make sure that your background counter melodies / fx's are more in the background. i.e. - lower the volumes of them. That should clean up your mix.
good luck in the contest man. :) have a listen to mine if you want.
Yay! This actually is helpful! I'm gonna try it right away.
The problem is that the last chorus has 100103432 tracks at the same time, so the vocals dissolve in the stringsocean :P To lower the volumes might do the trick. Thx!
