here's your review =)
Mmkay, so I'm done playing poker, and I said I would come on over and ship out a review. It may not shock you, but I used to write long reviews like you have when I first created an account here. I kind of don't know what happened, so I guess I just lost my touch in writing, which I guess is why I'm sticking to writing screenplays lately. Anyways, on to the review.
The beginning (heh) is kind of funny. Sounds like it's coming straight out of a radio, oddly once the beat comes in, it instantly just sounds like a normal part of the song. I might have to try that sometime in the future. Or once I get FL or something, I might just have to remix this =P
I so badly want to see what's next for this song, because it has all the supplies to be the best song on NG, just as you say your having problems with it, which is a shame. It's got MANY flavors of some of my favorite artists (ATB, Cordis). I mean, when the beat is going, it's an awesome song, but I think the song really shines when their are no drums backing up the synths, which is almost similar to ATB's style.
Like I said over MSN, the pitch bend near the 4 minute mark is possibly the msot beautiful thing I have ever heard on NG. I honestly can't compare it to anything else on this site, and it's such a fresh aspect to the song. It was so unexpected to hear that and I'm just completely in love with it.
If this is not to be and this song can't pick up, I would just put in a notion that that melody right there is totally worth it to keep moving. I don't exactly know what the trouble is, because this song is just working wonders for me right now. Once the song cuts out, you could of easily brought back that melody that I'm loving so much, if it didn't fit with the notes, you could of easily rendered it somehow to fit. From there, it could o just died down like any other Progressive Trance track would.
The song does not have to be energetic really. It's perfectly serene as it is, and if I was working on this, I would keep it exactly how it sounds. This is by far my favorite song from you, and I just hope you don't give up on it so quickly, because it's got A LOT of potential.
