Stronger, but still transitional part. Had lyrics, but I opted for an instrumental(mostly)

The start wasn´t that good, I think you abused your pitch bend a bit- it didn´t sound good.
But after the start it gains "betterness" You style is unique, I wish I could make songs like these. Nice delays and a really good mein melody in this.


Gillenium responds:

I've never been good at intros. I've come to embrace this though. For most of my newer songs, I try to make the intro purposefully amateurish, so I can weed out the reviewers who actually listened to the WHOLE song. Glad you liked it!

This one was decent.

But I really feel that you ruined it with the lyrics. I loved the begining with the distortion and all, but I feel that the lyrics take away from it's ambient and peaceful feel. Overall though, great job.

Gillenium responds:

Ah, maybe. I had inner conflict with this part. It felt kind've bland so I wrote lyrics for it, but the lyrics made it sound worse, so I only added part of the sung stuff at the end. I like to include myself in most of my songs. Sorry it didn't work for ya! Thanks for the review.


I might have listend to this before without knowing it, but either way I like it. Great peice with suttle beats in there and the octive down and up pitches were really great. Once again you leave me with nothing bad to say, damn your good music making skills! :D

Gillenium responds:

Gracious again. Not a whole lot happening in this part, but it's doing its job at connecting the other parts together.

=) i finally review WBSW

Outa the 3 parts this is my favorite, prolly because i like techno more than ambient, and this song has more rythms, the vocals in the end really put an image into my head that it could easily be put into a video game. Like background music in some scene. that dumb pablo guy said these 3 parts aren't ambient what a douche, no idea what he's talking about. anyway peace Gill, keep making music.

Gillenium responds:

Thanks for the review, man! Yeah, I wanted to put lyrics in the whole thing. But it wasn't working so well for me. I had good lyrics for it and everything, but I couldn't get it to sound right. This whole WBSW project is more about minimal anyway. My favorite part of the project is Part 4... how's that for a teaser? :D

Nice job

I really liked the pads in the beginning. and nice percussion as well. I like the melodies, and cool piano sounds with the voice.

Cool synths in there, really ghetto. review my stuff!


Gillenium responds:

I like my ghetto synths! Thanks for the review!
