If you don't like long intros skip to 2:00.

My best song. I started working on it about 2.5 weeks ago. Although imperfect, I realized that if I didn't finish it today I might never finish it.


I listened to this through headphones so I am not going to give any criticisms on any of the audio mastering since I don't have an accurate representation of the sound. I do think that the piano in the intro though was a bit too wide and overlapped with other sounds. Maybe if you made it a mono synth but put a couple delays on it panning in separate directions you could achieve the ethereal sound while still having it pierce through the mix.

It was a really grounded song. Nothing was overwhelming so the listen through was very comfortable. The triplets at the end got me though. Those are my weakness. I definitely love them when accompanied with a somber bassline since it really heightens whatever emotion you are trying to portray with the melody.

It's funny that you liked the triplets. I tossed them in towards the end because I was exhausted from all the melody-writing and wanted to do something easy ;-) Your suggestion about piano is intriguing and I shall test it out. I've also come to realize that you can EQ piano really narrowly and still have it sound fine, so hopefully I can clear up (huh huh pun) any EQ issues in the future.

Thanks for the review!

You seem to have the same problem when it comes to music. That you forget about projects too much or you're scared of forgetting them. What makes it hard trying to get motivation to work on one song?

Also since you kind of admitted this already had flaws, im not going to point those out so ill give you a standard 4/5 mainly for the beautiful melody composition.

johnfn responds:

You should point them out anyways, you might have noticed different problems than I did.

I actually don't have a problem of forgetting about songs (at least not usually). My main problem is I simply don't have enough time to work on music, what with school and all. The spark I had with this song lasted at least a week or two, which is pretty long for me, but I was mostly busy with schoolwork during that time.
