Shit Im late to the party... Damn frontpage! Im so fucking happy for you! You fucking deserve that!
Alright lets jump to the review
Its the beginning and Im loving the pad. Like in every of your song theres a reverby pad in the background that gives an atmosphere idk how u do that. And theres a guitar i like that, its not loud and too quiet thats perfect lol. And OMFG Ik you told me that u would do vocals for your songs but i never heard ur voice and holy shit u can sing! I would loved to hear some vibrato in words like "fading out, fading in" it would be so cool although it already is now. The staccato strings at 0:48 is awesome!I like the distorion of the pluck at 1:28, I never thought that distorting a pluck would sound good lol, might try that. A tiny complaint: at 1:34 the vocals are a bit too dry and don't really shine out. I would probably sing it an octave higher just to boost the drop. Ok now the drop. Damn it sounds epic af, I like the use of the saws! The melody is repetitive but catchy. However, I might vary the drum patterns a bit more. Also, the toms are a bit too loud in the 4hkz-10khz frequency, that makes them kinda sound like in a phonecall or shit you know. At 1:52 fuck, theres some sort of high pad that kicks in and it completly changed the allure of the drop and makes it even more epic. Idk how you maked the pad I tried to come up with something like that but never worked lol. And I love the transition from the drop to the outro with the pads being slightly distorted. Again, I never thought of distorting something thats meant to stay clean. And theres your trademark pad again, I can't tell which instruments are playing the plucked melody (harp?piano?pizzicato strings?or layered?). I have eargasms every time you use the dorian scale with the C# and I think ive already told you i fucking love dorian? And wtf you have the phrygian scale with the F natural at 3:12 it sounds as amazing! One complaint at the end though, at 3:20 when the low E on the piano was played, a lot of the high frequencies from the previous section was lost and I think u did it intentionally, but I might preferred just to leave the highs reverb. Its a small detail but yeah. Also something that I noticed, the song is in 60 or 120 bmp cuz the beat stayed consistent with the seconds mark on newgrounds lol!
Alright Ive been writing this for an hour and its time to conclude. I hope my review helped u and don't mind the way I write I write just like how I would speak to u lol and were friends right
