-/sounds so much better than most mainstream artists, you two! fantastic work on this piece :D/-
Solid track all around! I very much enjoyed it.
I noticed that you asked ganon95 what kept it from a 5/5, so to be helpful, I'll include why I gave this 4.5/5 instead of 5/5.
4.5/5 would go to a track that did everything in a fantastic way. The execution was amazing, the mixing is great, and the track is generally pleasant and enjoyable to listen to. (by the way, 4.5/5 is still really good and is basically perfect in every aspect, or damn near close.)
5/5 is when the track is extremely memorable for one reason or another. Maybe the chords, or the melody. The last half star is mostly based on my opinion of whether or not I feel it's memorable. For a track to get 5/5, it needs to have the level of 5/5, but it needs to be something I will remember and come back to and listen to again.
This is Super Good man! Absolutely Beautiful Production and Those Vocals are magnificent!
I don't usually listen to this type of music as I prefer songs with no lyrics so this review will mostly be from a production point of view.
The Piano part at the start feels a bit empty, could use some sound effects or synths to fill in the empty space. It does pick up a bit when the drums come in though.
The drums work great but, personally, I feel they are very light on bass...but that is more personal opinion as I like bassy kicks. however, for this song I feel it works best to have it as is as its a very light mix overall.
The mixing is well done all the sound levels are fitting with the overall tone. no sounds really stand out in a negative way.
It's a well produced song, lyrics fit well and everything sounds right.
About the solo piano intro. I wanted it to sound natural first before the rest of the instruments come in so no wooshy effects and stuff like that. I could have added foley and ambience but I decided against it and took the 'less is more' approach.
I don't get what you mean by the drums being "very light on bass". Are you referring to the snare and hihats not having any bass? (They aren't supposed to). In the drop, the kick has plenty of bass if that's what you mean. There is a sub bass that appears at 1:12, maybe you can't hear it on your speakers/headphones?
I'm also curious what's missing from the track which would've earned it a full 5/5 stars.
Thanks for your review!
Very well produced. Very interesting lyrics. Keeps me on my toes, musically and lyrically. Nice. I feel it. Nice feels. :3
