Hola, this was a test to see if I could write a song using just the one chord and not make it completely boring. It kind of worked, meh.

The panning in the beginning was good. I'm saying that because a lot of people including myself don't use it that often DX. The drums coming in is a nice touch. The intro is a little repetitive though. You do add plenty of instruments one after another to create a build. It especially gets catchier at 1:05 when the bass drum kicks in. Having that pulse bass drum is really good, and it can be good in a lot of songs. You executed it very well though. The drums are nice because they change up plenty. And I noticed you only used one chord as well as it says in your description. I think it is pretty difficult to do that for the most part, but for trying to do so, I say you did pretty well. The bass in the song is really good actually though, I would say that is the best feature for sure, unfortunately it doesn't come in till later in the song. Your mixing is really well done though. Everything sounds together and the instruments sound pretty good for the emotion you are going for. At least I assume you were going for the mood I am hearing.

Overall, good work though. Well executed for a one chord song. It's still repetitive, but it sounds good for the most part. Nice work!

Also, if you could check out my track "Stranded" and give feedback on it. That'd be great!

Hi stunkel,

Thanks for your review, I like hearing what other people think of my work, it always manages to surprise me somehow. Anyway I pretty much agree with most of what you said. But I never post the finished products on here as I use them in live sets and stuff,` so you'll never get to hear the improvements :(

I will return the favour and review your song as I'm sure you will undoubtably be aware of this already
