Good stuff, but more variety?
Hmmm~m. This is likable, and I again commend your patience in being able to work on a build-up to as many layers as you do. I do, however, agree with another reviewer on--Stained Chrome, I think?--who mentioned that you may want to start varying from "feeling your way into" songs by building them up one layer at a time--try starting with all or most of the layers there from the beginning, maybe, and see what you can do with the aural shock on the listen?
One thing I have noticed is that you've got pretty much the same beat loop with a different voice mapped onto it for the backbone of a lot of your songs--the beat-beat-(halfbeat)-beat--which could probably stand to be varied as well.
I do really like the tide/ocean sounds you've built this one over, though; very nice introduction to the aural "space" of the song. Actually, I think this might be better if you started with the ocean+pads sans beat and then layered things onto it--one thing I like about "professional" EBM music is that some artists will start with the more "ambient noise" for their intro rather than jump straight into the beat. It keeps songs from sounding too repetitive, IMO, and that's something your music does suffer from.
Anyhow. Good effort! Just needs some more polish, is all. :)
Well, I've been considering that suggestion of yours in that first paragraph but starting TOO suddenly and the listener, who's often starting the song from listening to little or nothing, gets an instant headache. XD But I'll experiment.
Not much to add concerning that second paragraph... and concerning the third, I'll agree that those pads are awesome. :D Interesting opinion, though, and I'll try to keep it in mind.
Thanks for the review, I'm glad you liked it. :)
