You can't win 'em all. This was a demo for an intro to an animated show. It wasn't accepted. That's life. I still like the piece. It's hard to put a 30 second non-loopable piece on sleepfacingwest.com as I suspect it has very little use to anyone so I'll put it here for now. I may extend it in the future, but for now I need to work on something different.

super awesome though it does seem to rush after 0:26

This piece has a much more engaging melody than the last one I reviewed. A bit of a slower start, but also with a similarly rushed ending. This time, I think the mix would actually benefit from a little more snare. If you're going for cheesy, over-the-top VGM, it's probably best to give the piece as strong of a kick as possible. If you wanted to loop it, I might suggest having the climax at :36 bleed right into the mini-intro to this nice little ditty. Either way, nice work. Brief, yet enjoyable. ^^

sleepFacingWest responds:

thanks! I'm listening to this again and you're totally right about the snare. It needs to be brightened. My rock drum programming needs a lot of work in general.

This was written for the intro sequence of an animated show, so no looping is necessary.

I agree that the ending comes quickly. I'd like to revisit this, flesh it out as a longer track, and let the sections breathe a bit more. That said, the musical cuts were timed to the action on screen. The B section (in both this and the last track) were set to coincide with a shift in the animation. Believe it or not, these were the best solutions I could come up with. The first track coincides better with the cuts between scenes, but I like the general flow and feel of this one better even if it only hits the big sync marks. Hopefully the next time I do this sort of thing I'll be able to come up with better solutions.

As always, thank you for your thoughtful response! I've got a bunch of things to work on.
