This was in my files for a long time, thinking if i would upload it or not, it is just a song about a box that never moves, and a little change where it moves for a while

Okay. This song's turn. Ready, set go!

The Good:
-I like the phaser/flanger sound on the bass in the beginning. It's well-done and sounds pretty sweet. :)
-I very much like the little chiming sound as well.
-Pretty nice distorted wobbles after the... transition(?) at 1:42-1:43.
-Actually, your mixing is a lot better in this song overall. I can hear everything pretty clearly, not much is overwhelmed unless it's a filter sweep, and those are pretty much designed to be subtle initially.

The Not-So-Good:
-Sorry. :< That kick doesn't sound good at all. It doesn't have enough in the attack, and also lacks a good bass sound - too much of the very low. Finally, it has the weird "deow" sound (really don't know how to put it into letters) which doesn't sound very good.
-Biggest problem: This is SUPER repetitive. There's very little variation throughout, and each individual section goes on for too long without enough change in it to keep me interested. Finally, each section repeats itself several times. Just switching patterns in and out is good for beginning work, but you need to go beyond that and have melodies as well as countermelodies - not just cool instruments and harmonic chord progression.
-1:42-1:43 what the hell <--This describes it in full.
-While the ending is better, it could still be improved a lot. The piece needs some sense of 'closure'. Part of the issue is the repetitiveness. At the very least, I could tell that the end was most likely starting to come.

Overall: I really don't have a ton to say about this, mainly because the content that's there is really only worth about 2 to 2 and a half minutes or so. That's the biggest problem in this, and it forces me to give a score no higher than 7/10. I actually have to say, I enjoyed this despite its flaws. You know what you're doing - just try to put in some melodic development if possible please! :)

Aqua8B responds:

well, thanks for the review :)
for the repetitiveness, sorry, I0m trying to get this all better and improved, allthough I0m experimenting now with the house style, i feel more comfortable with the house genre
and of course my biggest problem is the melody, i still do not know how toget that right with a good lead, and something that is like telling a story, melodies from people like "Envy", i want to do the same
1:42 - 1:43 - yeah, it was experimenting with "Gross Beat", maybe you could help me with the melodic development, if so, send me a PM
and again thanks for the review
