just trying to get those creative juices flowing again...


I am in heaven...

This IS the BEST song I have ever heard here... Voted 5, favorited, put on Top Star playlist, and on my iPod.

The mixture of electronics, and acoustics where a perfect blend.

thanks very much!

Nice track

I really like this track because it combines alot of musical styles. Nice effects.

attemptedperfection responds:

thanks; glad you liked it

Misc indeed:...

Hi there. Thought it was really about time I returned the reviews.
This trk has loads of nice ideas in it, and I've always liked guitar mixed with electronics, especially acoustic.
The mix sounds a little busy at times even though there aren't a lot of instruments, I think it's the mixture of delays that does it, that said they are effective individually.
Production is pretty good, I would like to hear the guitar a little higher and brighter in the mix and the delayed synth stop delaying every once in a while, but that's just me.
Respect for the creativity and kudos for the miscellaneousness of the trk:)4/5

Thanks for the review! I'll try to be more careful about mixing delays in the future. As for your review, I had meant that the whole song sounded like it could be used as background music because of the whole staying-in-one-place-ness which I can now attribute to your one riff/melody idea; I was specifying the second half with regards to the percussion being similar to one of your previous tracks. Hope that clears up what I meant. At any rate, thanks again for the review!

nice effects

The hi-hat sounded very nice in my headphones.
But the chord structure was a little weird, or at least the part the bell synth played was a little strange.
The acoustic guitar sounded great though, with the strumming and melody it played.
You needed a more staedy hi-hat beat to go along with the flanged out one, to give the song more structure.

Twas good though, hope your juices are flowing

attemptedperfection responds:

Thanks for the review!
yeah, the original song description went something like:
"weird chord progressions... weird scales... just weird." so yeah... weird is the perfect word. I'm not sure if it worked musically, but it's something a bit different anyway, and that's all I was really going for. I thought of putting in a steady hi-hat, and ended up just making it a bit more stable around the ending. Actually, there technically isn't any hi-hat at all; originally it was an idea for a drum beat, but I ended up filtering it out to the extent that it sounded like a hi-hat. I liked it that way, so I kinda built the song around it.
Anyway, thanks again for the review!
