NGAP 10TH ANNIVERSARY CONTEST REVIEW
Now this is interesting. It sounds like you used the cardboard samples that Rig made, which is quite a nice tribute to the original. And even if you didn't, it sure sounds like it!
What's really obvious is that this has fantastic production quality. It's rare to see this kind of production on Newgrounds, so it's refreshing to hear a very well-defined bassy oomph in the kick and the grittiness of the bass. Everything is very clear and sits well in the mix, and the mastering is pretty much nailed too. The sounds are all well-chosen and it's pretty obvious you know what you're doing. Still can't get over how wonderfully rough and gritty that bass is.
That said, this has flaws which you're probably aware of. First issue I have is that this doesn't have much of its own uniqueness. It's just typical gritty dubstep that doesn't take the original to new lengths. The only time you vary significantly from the original is in the intro, and whereas the intro in the original had a likeable 8-bit flair to it, this has just a fairly cheesy synth over drums. Moreover, this is too repetitive. Later into the song one can realise that this really doesn't have much content in it. What it has is undoubtedly well-made, but you need to vary it up more. And what's up with that ending? D:
All in all, you've done a nice tribute with great production value. However, this needs more work in terms of actual musical content.
