I concur with fredtheguy, it lacks organization, but it isnt a bad thing. I know a lot of good songs that are random. It sounds nice, and I like it (4.5/5)

Thanks for reviewing!!

This was pretty good. The only criticism I could think of was that I couldn't detect any form or organization. That's generally not a bad thing, but it kinda bugged me. The fact that there was a recurring leitmotif helped though.
Now for the good stuff. The EQ on this was done very nicely. Nothing sounded too airy or artificial. Then there's the beat in the background. It had a nice fluctuation to it; light 'tch' sound, then a rich clapping sound, repeated over and over again. I can't quite put it into words, but the pacing of it was interesting. Also, I disagree with zelazon's comment on the emptiness. I think this actually had a fair bit of atmosphere to it, and the parts where everything but the lead was silenced only made it more interesting by shifting in and out of an ambient atmosphere.
Overall, this was a really good song, but the lack of organization hurt it a bit.

JQiscool responds:

Some of my songs are a little messy haha
Thank you!

Why is the ranking on this so low? There is a good mix to this song that is very enjoyable.

JQiscool responds:

Thanks for the opinion

Could be TONS better. But right now it's just a "MEH" kind of song.
A little more variation would go a long way.


JQiscool responds:

Thanks! I'll work on it!

Claps are really damn weak... then the song kicked in and i wanst too impressed, WAYY TOO MUCH OF AN INTRO!!! But i wont complain, its not too bad, just weak...

JQiscool responds:

I'd like to know what u mean by too much of an intro...
weakness is my weakness haha
but thanks for the review!!!
