Good job

I liked it regardless, and had no problems with the volume levels, thank you for submitting it :)

I like it

I wish you had done more with the percussion, though... mainly the hi-hat. Maybe just de-emphasis. My ears didn't like it. Other than that, beautiful work.

arleas responds:

I originally debated leaving the drums out entirely, but I agree... The drums were a bit bland... I'm not a drummer so I really had no idea how to make it work, so I just went with a plain drumbeat in the background and used the cymbal crescendo for the emphasis...


Both versions of Failure are beautiful, I actually like the old version better and think it's underrated. Piano fantasy is also not bad and a little underrated. Good work. Failure really is beautiful.

arleas responds:

The reason I resubmitted the "failure" song is because I screwed up in recording it to mp3 (ironic, no?). The only real difference between the two is how loud it sounds... the "first" submission was far too loud and all the highs and lows were washed out, so I fixed the problem and resubmitted...
