There is a lot that this piece has going for it: the colors are very interesting, the blend is nice, and the variety in the different sections is highly appreciated. That being said, my primary criticism of this work is that nothing really stood out to me as a melody or focal point. There was a lot going on, and I could actually see you using this track in its exact form as the background to a main melody (vocals, strings, or something that has a smooth, solid tone color to differentiate itself from the highly colorful background would be preferred)
I was thinking of adding vocals actually! I just dont really know where to start because I can't sing. Ill hold onto it for now but if an opportunity ever comes up I'll try to get some vocals on this. Thanks for the review!
First of all, I love how it starts! I really dig the dry sounding guitar. It's got a lot going on like you said but I think that's like the song's "attitude". I do feel that some of the synths and piano are a little blurry or fuzzy, like, they don't sound clear enough, and that could be negative since they lead the track's direction. There's a bit at 2:05 (the synth strings) that personally I'd like to hear in a more organic way, so to say - maybe best strings VSTs? The bass is awesome throughout the song, the rhythm falls and gets up nicely (special mention to the part at 0:55) and I like the dance/trance vibe it gives me. Don't know if it's intentional but it sounds like something I'd listen on repeat in a flash or indie game. Overall, it's not the type of music I listen to with frequency but I like the feel and would love to hear it in some kind of videogame.
Awesome... Very good.
I love the energy that it gives.
