Not bad for an hour, if I do say so myself.

Well balanced, but could use more variation...

I feel that this is a good track - like you say, it's not bad at all for an hour's work. It starts off well enough, building up from a synth loop and bass beat to something a little more, from a few more effects being added in for good measure. I think that along that line with the intro / opening salvos, you could have added in slightly more in the way of instrumental variation. The bass is powerful, but not spectacular and the synths do nothing to make me feel that this is anything other than the rest of the techno herd, blindly following the others.

Really good techno pushes the boundaries and gets confused with the other similar genres - trance, house, garage, drum & bass, for example. Nothing here seems to come close to those and as a result, something is lost within. The outro, with the high pitched xylophone was fantastic, but merely too little, too late.

Thanks. I can see what you mean about pushing the boundaries and variation; I'll keep that in mind for future stuff. Also, I'm glad you like the outro. I too thought that was the best part of the song.

Not bad, its nice, but its repetitive, that means: boring, try to change that, the chord progression is the same all over the song, you could use more instruments too, keep your work!

alienchao responds:

Yea, I knew it was repetitive when I submitted it, I just decided to take a risk and submit it anyway. It didn't quite pan out, but I really like this progression so I might try to revisit it in the future. Thanks, though.

I can picture this into a video game though it does sound extremely similar to other songs

alienchao responds:

Thanks, that would be cool.

Honestly.. I have seen much better from you, this is extremely similar to other songs on NG, this one was a bit of a let-down.

alienchao responds:

Well I knew it was a bit stereotypical when I made it, I just decided to put it up anyway.

I was totally expecting some sort of sample of Ezekiel 25:17 in relation to the movie Pulp Fiction based on your tags. Throwing any sample in there would make this much more interesting. I agree with FightTheTide on the originality aspect , but like the song less.

alienchao responds:

Umm... I was more intending it as just a reference, and I'm not sure how one vocal sample could make a 3 minute song that much more interesting.
EDIT: Oh yea, and at least I compose my own music instead of using pre-made loops. you should try it sometime.
