To my knowledge this is one of two songs I've written in the last ten years with a cow bell in it. I have a love/hate relationship with cowbells.


Holy cow(bell 8) )! This is really cool! You seem be underrated as a musician.

Quarl responds:

Naw, im just old and washed up. I've had ups and downs over the years but Im mega lazy these days promoting myself. I'm super focused on a real life career, music just happens for fun. Thanks for the love :)

woah, do i hear some panning there? damn.
anyway, i think the vocals at the start could use some reeverb/delay
there also could be some sidechain
the end could probably be a little better if there was a lowpass filter, y'know, just to make it fade out, instead of the volume thing.
there's probably more stuff to critique but i can't really wrap my head around it right now.

other than that, pretty nice song! sounds somewhat experimental, maybe just because its not the usual stuff that i listen to, but yeah, thats about it!

Quarl responds:

lol, thanks for the review but if you could see my virtual rack, you'd understand that almost everything gets side chained. Not super hard mind you, I don't like when the envelope on my drum kit over powers everything around it. Usually, I'll lightly sidechain a little bit of everything, with a heavier sidechain on the sub.

cowbell is god tier percussion and shall inspire all for eternity.

nice song this sounds crazy harmonic and moody

Quarl responds:

no u

It takes a seriously cool woman to toss cowbell into a song, although at first I had trouble detecting it and was about to go all Christopher Walken on ya. This track is super fun in many ways and I know for sure I'll be giving it repeat listens!

Quarl responds:

Aws, thanks BwE. I was listening to Absent Tree Star earlier today but couldn't finish a proper review because I kept getting to the end like "damn it... what's this awkward ending?" The track was super potent, keep going with it :D

The words you wrote moved me though. My mom commit suicide a number of years ago. I'm still very fortunate that my dad is a huge positive force in my life. I'm sorry it sounded to me like your on your own at the moment? I'm sure you have friends and others that are filling the void. Right? I hope you're ok. Details worry me. Thanks for the feedback Bwe!

edit: wasn't aware you were 32. Regardless, I hope life is treating you well. It's not fair when life takes anyone down a peg. I'm sorry about your dad.

Only got to listen to this now. Enjoyed the **** out of it, but I don't have the time to write a better review (working on some school stuff, and it's almost 6am = I am not a smart person).

Also, lol at the reviewer below me. I'm honestly impressed by your response!

Quarl responds:

OG audio portal, that's the kind of response that would have got me zero bombed for the next two weeks.

I don't mind friendly "hi-five" reviews like yours. Hell, even low scoring crits are ok. I might come off a little pissy in my response but you gotta deal with the haters eventually and everyone is entitled to an opinion under the circumstance that they have one in the first place. Haters are just misunderstood.

good luck with that thesis you may or may not be working on right now o.O
