I listened to some of my old music and decided that what made it great (for me anyway) was how blatant and cheesy yet honest I was with melodies and delivery. So I decided to try that again, but with my current skills. Have a listen ~

Really love this one but this is the most loved song that you ever made.:)

I love the industrial sound effects and the James Bond-style guitar at the beginning. Interesting...at first I thought this was going to be one of your bassy, rhythmic tracks. The progression is a tad slow for the first minute, but you do a great job of slowly morphing it into a more upbeat track. I'm definitely getting some older Waterflame-style vibes here, but the instrumental palette is a bit richer and the texture feels more saturated, both of which are pluses. There's a lot of melodic content to keep me engaged. Your mixing has definitely gotten better in the last couple of years, but I think that snare wasn't always as prominent as I wanted it to be. The piece also feels a tad repetitive by the end. The contour in the main riff is very similar throughout the track. I also thought the ending could've been a bit more creative. Overall, though, I really like the sound design and mood here. The bass is really important to the texture of the piece, but it's still a really strongly melodic track. Keep it up, WF!

Waterflame responds:

Thanks for the review! Thats great to hear. I actually agree with the criticism too, I was entranced by the repetitive melody. I tend to fixate on certain bouncing appreciating things and make them go on for a tad too long. This could def. have been cut down a bit and mastered with less emphasis on the bass.

the beginning reminds me of the Zerg in Sc2
I LOVE IT

One minute thirty seconds to race around the world.

Considering some of the other music I've heard you produce in some of your other audio bits, I can say, it is very similar to the style I think of when hearing yours, which is hard to achieve from what I know. Not bad at all.
