I'm not sure if I'm facing off against a leprechaun or a dwarf while listening to this, but one thing that I do know is that this song is comedy in its fullest form. I don't bash people about the quality of their programs or samples, so I mainly wanted to focus on the structure of the composition. Every musician like you and I have our own style, and I can clearly see the inimitable style that you express in the composition of this song. I mean, there are so many dynamic parts to this song, I would be here for quite a while if I was to pick at them all, so basically as a whole, this song represents exactly what I believe you were aiming for: something comical.
I honestly keep hearing 'Carol of the Bells' in here. I don't know if I'm crazy or not, but I swear I keep hearing that melody, although it's different. But anyways, I know you mentioned that this song is old, although while listening to it I feel as though it is an excellent reflection of your musical skills. I mean, the amount of detail you've put into each instrument is remarkable. I especially like the 'bounce' that the brass and pizzicato have; it just adds more to the comical feeling.
I would have liked to have heard more defined percussion. Your percussion in this song seems a little too whimsical for my liking, I would have liked to have heard more prominent cymbal and more definition on the snare drum. I did like the bass, gong, triangle, and metals; good way to add some dynamics to the track. Another thing that I was somewhat disappointed with was the ending. It was very abrupt and I was expecting it to continue or at least fade out, but it just kinda ends as if it was going to loop. I know this is old, and me mentioning the ending is probably annoying, so I'm not going to say too much more regarding that.
Did I mention that I liked this song and the dynamics of the instruments? You're really good at music like this, and I hope to hear more from you. Maybe more music that focuses on brass like this song does.
4.5 stars -- Only because I was somewhat disappointed with the ending.
And a five vote.
Hi Bosa, thank you very much for the detailed review.
Reminds me of the Pink Panther do not know why lol
I like it, it's pretty good. The main line is catchy, but I agree with Calibrez37: It sounds like it's missing *something*. I'm not sure what.
However! It would make awesome spy music. It reminds me of something you might hear in a part of a video-game that has a section where you need to try to be sneaky. Almost like Vivi's section in FF9.
Sure; I like the FFIX soundtrack so it's possible I was influenced by Uematsu's orchestration here.
Sounds really epic, it reminds me of something, but I don't know what.
If you think of it, let me know!
Sounds a lot like Donnie Darko and Circus Music had a baby, it is good but it seems to lack something
OK. Thanks for listening.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
