It took way too long to pickup so... other then that it was prettygood, you just need to use more then like 4 pitches, i kinda was a lil bored through the middle.

Touché, Bloodkore, touché :P cheers for the review


Aside from the indeed somewhat long intro, this is actually very nice. Crisp production, great little bits going on in the background, and the composition is interesting.

Longwinded tracks can be very exciting. The kickass beat that pitbulljones suggested is a good idea to help reaching that effect.

What I also think would benefit this track is replacing or editing the glassy synth. It actually plays the lead, but the sound is so modest that it is reduced to background. If you'd give that some oomph, and perhaps some dynamic variations, the tune will stand out a lot more. The way it is now it sounds a bit too sequenced, thus lacking soul.

No further comments, you're working with ace material, just be a little bit more clever in arranging it :P

Thanks for the pointers man, I might try and incorporate those one day to make the ultimate robosong! Cheers for the review :)


The intro seemed to drag on a bit too much. I really started liking it once it got started though. The beat was simple and fit well fit well but could have made it pound a bit more. It wouldn't hurt if the melody sounded a bit thicker but that might be because of my shitty speakers. The mixing seemed good so I can't really say anything bad about that. Overall I liked the song and think it'd be great with some little changes. Good job man.

curriemaster responds:

Nah its not your shitty speakers i just went for a bass-light style on this tune. I might try and incorporate some of those changes one day. Thanks a lot for the review mr. messiah! :)

It reminds me the orbit song

I think it lacks originality. I also think you abuse the pads a bit. I find it a bit trivial for ambience but that's personal taste influencing.
So, I think that the production is quite good (even though I still this is a bit to... colorful) and the best is entering quite well. The main melody is a bit cacophonic.

curriemaster responds:


Thanks very much for the constructive criticism! You have named a few of things I dislike about this song and intend to change in the future:

The length of the intro,
the volume of complexity of the bassline
the drum stucture

They all need attention but Im quite lazy you see ;).

Thanks again for the review!

nice one son

not bad again mate, this is the first time ive listene to your stuff and its really nice stuff, one things thats missing from here tho is a really pounding beat, it would help this tune soooooooo much.

curriemaster responds:

This tune definitely need some pumping beats. And I think you are just the man to doooo it! Its a pretty boring tune to be fair, I need to enliven it somehow...

Cheers for the review chief.
