Reviews for "Dragon Ball Z Inspired"

FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!! i love this. ITS OVER 9000!!!! stars. so bad ass its so heavy and deep it just rocks you yet still so smooth the Kamehameha was a nice touch. I love both your works. Tar Boy was my first thing that got me to like James when i saw that i was hooked. then hearing you Hana wow your fantastic. James you lucky you are one of my inspirations. okay now that i am done kissing ass grate song its all good. much love your fan for life Gerodias

In contrast to FightingSeraph, who is still entitled to his/her opinion, I'd just like to say that I found this to be a very solid piece of music. I've always found your music well-written, interesting and well-produced. This song is no exception and I think that for the most part it's a really nice track. I'm not going to say you're the best composer ever and that everything you do is necessarily a masterpiece, but you're making consistently good songs I always seem to enjoy so you're definitely very talented.

Like I said, FightingSeraph is entitled to his/her opinion but I'd still like to remind you that it IS only an opinion and that you are NOT just an half-assed songwriter with only "basic skills" - you have plenty of fans who love your music and that is proof enough that you are good. I also really enjoy your music and wants to encourage you to never stop doing it (as long as you enjoy it yourself).

I am going to be honest with you.

I never found you to be a good musician at all, though it is obvious that you do know how to sing. However, I will try to be fair.

Sound design: This is possibly the only thing that this has going for it. You did a good job on the piano, timpani, and strings. You know how to handle VSTs correctly, and that is probably one of your few merits. Unfortunately, the instrumentation, while well done, is unfitting for something like this.
Vocals: To tell you the truth, I never found your voice to appealing at all. However, it is obvious that you know how to sing, which is the only other thing that justifies your reputation. As for the lyrics, they're the same as the stateside intro, but I'm not a lyricist so I really can't criticize.
Composition: Seeing this is a cover of the intro, I can't really fault you for following it to a T. However, the tempo for this is unfitting for a song that is supposed to be intense. I understand that you wanted something slow and ominous, but it just doesn't complement this at all. Please listen to Gwar, Infected Mushroom, Texas Faggot, Andophoria, Penta, Hypnotic Mushroom, Simon Posford, Cannibal Corpse, Slipknot (their first two albums I might add), Dying Fetus, or KMFDM.
Other: I may be harsh at times, but will acknowledge that you have the basic skills. On the other hand, it would be best if you went in a different direction.

What I did like:
-Well-written for the most part
-Well sung
-Nice use of classical instruments
-A different type of cover song.

What I didn't like:
-Annoying vocals
-The soundset and tempo didn't really complement this.

Overall: To tell you the truth, I have no right to give you a zero, but am sorry that a five out of ten is all I can give you. I sure as shit know that your fan will hate me and what not, but felt that serious honesty was sorely needed. (2.5/5)

Glad your back!

I don't know why, but the track reminds a lot of one of the scores from "Men In Black".

You rock, Hania!
