Last section needs work

What a fantastic beginning... great title since it reminds me of boats leaving the port. Very emotional piece I think. Great effect with the saxes.

I would point out that you really need to give it a few more turns in order to finish it properly. The beat seems to be out of context.

i love sax, sax is good. yeh, the end beat is quite lame, i am lazy


There's some magic here. The sax chaos really appeals to me. Is it a virtual instrument or samples I wonder?
I really love it when the big, languid phasered beat drops in. Sounds psychadelic.
This is definately one of the highest quality alternative songs I've heard around the joint.
Woah, thats a classy outro. Well, I thought it was going to end on the distortion...but here we have a duet! Very unexpected, and this beat is a massive change from the rest of the piece. To be honest, I think this conventional beat ruins to some extent all your wonderful first half. I would have liked that to be the whole track.
There's the exit, nice sax solo! ;)
You rock dude, and as a sax player myself, massive kudos...

not the best sounding song. its atleast original

snoballandthmonyshot responds:

ta dredbin,

9??!! WTF!

Very filthy piece - the first half is just dripping with grime - great ambience. Nice chops on the sax in the later part of this track.

You should go back and jump headfirst into the tedium of mixing up the percussion.
That's where the 9 for effort came from.

You still get a 5 though - I hope it won't attract too much attention from the zero-voting cockmunchers.


snoballandthmonyshot responds:

yo yo,
yeh, the whole thing needs a fair bit of work, if i ever get around to it i'll post a more comprehensive version.
tanks mate,
