Made for NGADM. Thanks for the top 32 :)


Lyrics


Life is one big party

Where everybody is invited

'Cept me cause I wasn't invited

That's where all the fighting started


You denied in disbelief

How someone like me

Would even conceive of being

Seen with you for any reason


I have no friends

While you have too many options

Seems like you know everybody

Just for being born so pretty


Maybe one day you’ll know how

it feels to be me

All rejection no affection

No real love from any woman


Everybody’s in-vited but me

Why can’t you see

How this tortures me


And I’d rather

Die

And end up in hell

Than be by myself

On this Friday

Night….


Life is one big party

Where everybody is invited

'Cept me cause I wasn't invited

That's where all the fighting started


You denied in disbelief

How someone like me

Would even conceive of being

Seen with you for any reason


I have no friends

But you have too many options

Seems like you know everybody

Just for being born so pretty


Maybe one day you’ll know what

it feels to be me

All rejection no affection

No real love from any human


Everybody’s in-vited but me

Why can’t you see

How this tortures me


When you judge what I

Cannot control

It tears up my soul


And I’d rather I

Died

And end up in hell

Than be by myself

On this Friday

Night….

The synths and drums patterns at the beginning are catchy and cute, but the instruments themselves are pretty cheesy. The melody synth sounds really thin compared to the bass, although the mix is fairly loud and clear otherwise. The lyrics have a fun, almost comical vibe, yet the recording quality isn’t perfect and the mixing on the vocals could be smoother. The panning on the vocals is pretty heavy, and the different vocal layers could’ve blended better. There’s also a bit of distortion at 1:17, likely because of the overpowering vocals. At 1:42, I’m enjoying the catchy percussion and circus-like instrumental solos. The chord progression remains pretty cliche throughout the piece, although I liked the gradual decline in register of the piece at around 2:20. At 2:26, the distortions from the vocals become more noticeable and the quantizing isn’t perfect either. I think the vocals often fall behind the beat. Some re-recording might be in order there, especially for the purpose of better syncing up the backing vocals with the lead. Overall, I think this is a cute piece with a lot of fun ideas, but the execution on the vocal processing and mastering needs some more work. Keep at it, Jackbliss! :)

Thanks for another great detailed review TaintedLogic. It's been a great opportunity for me to produce songs for this tournament and learn from my mistakes to get the best output for future releases. Keep up the good work! :)
