My new ringtone ;D
This is extremely creative and amusing. I love the 8-bit, videogame feel. The glitchy, robotic sound effects added a ton to it as well. I love the lyrics - they're extremely creative, and the mix is very full, but still good and not TOO busy! You also provide a good deal of structural relief with the minimalism at 1:03. It's catchy, cool, coherent, and overall very entertaining. I see no issues with the balance of volume levels or the mixing, and it's very smooth-flowing and well-structured. I think some of the effects are a bit high-pitched and harsh-sounding, but I think you were going for that gritty effect, which admittedly works quite well with the theme of the piece. Also, the vocals sounded a bit whiny at times, but I'll admit that, again, the unpolished nature of them seemed quite fitting with the theme. Overall, excellent work! Pieces like this are easy to review! ;D
This is quirky, fun to listen to. The sound effects, the 8-bit, it sounds so well done. The piece kinda reminds me of a video game version of Mr Bombastic.... whether it rubs me the wrong way, or not, is immaterial, because it's at least left me something to remember.
Right off the bat I feel the vocals are lacking precision. A bit off timing in places, and to my ears, sounds a bit nervous in some places. Perhaps it was intended to be sung in the same volume and predominantly the same pitch throughout, but I find a bit more expression is warranted in places like "Holy **** Tom's already a robot!" -- hip-hop is not my genre, but I do know one thing about it: good hip-hop artists have no holds barred with expression. Dynamics, manner of speech, tone...
The music is alright, I suppose -- I have no complaints with regards to mixing.
Fun song, vocals could use some oomph. For the record, I listened for the most part without looking at the lyrics, and it was trippy. Had me smiling a bit.
Mind if I use this?
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
