Singleton (Original Mix)



Rated 4 / 5 stars


Truly the best part about this is the atmosphere, so I'll start with that. The mysterious and somewhat creepy vibe this track gives is really nice! You've achieved that with an excellent use of reverb, subbass, and intriguing sounds. Paired along with an awesomely clear master? Yes.

Other great things include the percussion, your sound design (especially the bells at 2:34 and the soundscapes), and of course, mixing and mastering.

Now, my biggest critique: lack of cohesive melody. The guy below me said the same thing, and I'll repeat him. I feel like this track would have been really tied together with an awesome melody. There are plenty of places where I could see melodies fit, like the part at 0:57 and 5:20.

Other complaints include mediocre transitions (the percussion entrance and the transition at 3:36 were quite sudden), lack of chord structure variation, and the inconclusive ending.

Overall, this track has a solid ambient feel to it, and is overall pretty cool! A few minor details need some attention here and there, but I'd say I'm impressed! 4/5

MaxPoly responds:

I fully intend to focus on melody a little more for now on. I don't plan on coming back to this, but I'll definitely keep this in mind for future tracks.

I'm also getting better at transitions bit by bit, it's never been a strong suit of mine from the beginning. I've had significant trouble cobbling a song together with more than one section, let along a full 7-minute track. This was kind of a rare moment of productivity for me, and I'm trying to keep releasing finished stuff as momentum, if that makes sense.

Thanks for the review!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

The intro built up pretty well. I like all the unique sounds that created the array of percussion. Once the synth came in, it started to really intrigue me. The lead melody could have used a little variation. At 2:34 I became really captured by the unique feeling of this song. Your ability to master and add effects is really superb. The unique sounds and variation in ambience is what really kept my attention throughout this piece. What I felt was lacking was an explosive melody. Something that would just blow you away as a listener. The buildup was so fluid and exciting, I definitely feel the potential of a catchy and energetic lead melody featuring variation throughout this. I still gave you a 5 star because this track definitely took some time and dedication and I really respect the level of mastering and clarity you achieved. Keep it up!

MaxPoly responds:

I'm responding to this really late (sorry, I had a lot going on the time of year I released this).

It is kind of amelodic. My other tracks aren't really that way, I just couldn't find a place for a melody here that made sense. I guess the feel is channeling more of an Arthur Deep kind of a composition, where the melody is less important than the atmosphere. It is what it is I guess *shrug*

Thanks for the review!
