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 woman

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! :)
