This one of my favorites songs, its crazy but good

Maybe I'm too fast, but it seems like I'm the first to review this song as well (unless someone writes one at the same time but finishes before me). Oh well, that will change since you're bound to get lot's of fans. I checked out some of your stuff on SoundCloud and Bandcamp as well, and I'm now sure that you will indeed keep the good stuff coming ;)

Once again, it feels a bit dumb reviewing this, since I'm finding it difficult to come up with constructive criticism. I'm sure there are people that won't like this, since tastes differ, but I simply LOVE your quite unique, yet awesome, composing style. Again, I find no flaws with mixing nor with instrument choices. You have a great understanding of which sounds fit well together, and when to remove or add things to/from the song. You also know how to handle the different elements of the production in general. Speaking of which, which DAW are you using :O?

I liked every different part of this composition. To begin with we have that catchy synth-bass like thing, and then there are those drums; I love those Santa Claus like bells! After this there's some electronic stuff that seems to build up to that (dubstep-ish, what ever it's called) instrument at 0:47. And after this I'm like: "WOW! Did you just perfectly manage to blend in bongo drums into this" (seriosly though, are those bongo drums, or something else? [0.55]). Then there are of course those super athmosphere building sound effects!

You also seem to make the most melodical of melodies indeed ;)

I guess I could go on pointing out all the different parts (like that awesome transition at 1:16 :D), but since you already know they exist I don't really see how I'm helping.

One can definitely dance to this, since, the beat is perfect and evident through the entire song. I don't really know what to picture in my head while listening to this. There's just so much going on! Which imo is a good thing. At some points I kind of imagine just floating through space, while I at other times feel like I'm in some kind of weird jungle or something (like when those drums enter at 1:29)! At other parts I just see a lot of robots dancing to the beat inside of my head! Even my (funky) cat is baffled by your music!

The only "negative" thing I have to say is that you could've avoided such a generic ending. That is of course, just my opinion, but I'm sure some people would agree. Right now, it's just a bit too sudden, an slightly unsatisfying :)

Well this review didn't turn out to be so helpful. Just know that you're great at what you're doing, and please, keep it up!
I'm Not trying to force you to do awesome music that I can listen to bu.... Aww, who am I kidding. MAEK MOAR AEWSMOE MSUIC FOR MEEEH!!!! (And your future billions of potential fans).

GhostLawyer responds:

Wow! Thank you for taking the time to listen to my music and let me know what you think. You're one cool cat and I commend you.

I use FL Studio for pretty much all my music. The main synths I use here are 3xosc and Z3ta.

I actually considered naming this song "Yuletide Apocalypse" for a while just because of those sleigh bells. I love the way they sound haha this isn't the first time I've used them either.

Those are indeed bongo drums ^__^ I'm quite glad you like them.

I wasn't really sure how to end this song at the time I was making it so I agree with you there--it is a little abrupt. A better ending is definitely in order.

Thank you again! It's alright if you can't think of anything "helpful" to say. TBH I enjoy well-thought out compliments just as much as constructive criticism--it lets me know when I'm doing something right!
