A bit fast:
This was a bit fast than the original, so yeah and out of beat in some parts.... if that was your aim, then fair enough, but yeah. Work on the timing and speed cause it just sounds too 'all over the shop'.
I really loved it, and the original song was wonderful. At one point it goes off key, not really sure if it's in the original song, sorry I suck. xD;;
But, keep up the good work, and honestly, even if you suck at singing you should try. It just seemed a bit dry. : /
A fair effort indeed, but...... no.
The begining of this recording hits on all the right notes, and your heart shines through the beginig of this tune. That is, until the lack of ANY of the haunting vocals. The Pixies trademark howl is just a fond memory that you miss and do with out
Ususally this would not be an issue, but the howl that lurks throughout the original Pixies version of this tune is an absolute necesity! It takes what is a fairly easy tune an makes it haunting and mabey even earie. If there had been the howl, or even any symbolance of it it could be forgiven. But instead one is left wanting.
In my opinon the sound of the recording starts off fairly decent even impressive. Unfortunately once the lead breaks in, it gets a little shakey for a moment-or three. If this sound would hold, it might just work!
I realy like the first verse section alot! It gently flows in with just enough of a build-up. There is qutie a bobble around the minute-and-ten mark that ends in a opositionally very sure climax in the next tewnty seconds or so. Absolutely convencing proof that there is a lot of heart behind this particular effort, and with some practice and self production a lot may be to come from you.
A bit of over anciousness seems to eminate threought the rest of the tune, with the sound slowly deterorating around it, kind of unfortunate as it is the last thing on my mind with some weird distortion at the end. Thank you for keeping your heart into this tune as that is what I walk away with, and that is a lot these day$. In conclusion be careful when covering a song that relys so heavily on vocals, that you at least adress the issue somehow, whether it be a "new" guitar part or just some "faking" it vocals. Let me assure you this, the more you work on your voice the better it will get. I promise that much, you may never have a "legendary" voice, but sing along with your songs when you play them, and really try, and find what does and dosen't work for you, all you can do is get better right? Thanks for keeping the music alive in your heart where it belongs!
Hey, thanks man. Some of the errors are just related to the mic I have. It's just an old headsetthat was donated from my schools Media Center.
Your review was very helpful to me and I relize that not a lot of people browse the Audio portal, and it's great to see some people being active. Your review sounds like something out of a music magazine.
I agree with you on baisically every point you make. I know I need some practice and what not, but I've only been playing for about 2 years, and this is only my 4th recording ever.
Thanks for all your help,
the balance is restored again
This review isn't directed towards FiveVoter, but if anyone has a request for a song, just send me a PM, and I'll see what I can do.
should be on billbord
Thanks, But I wouldn't go that far.
