whu?

For a pokemon animation with a skyrim reference this was unexpectedly extremely funny.
Full score for writing, animation and voice acting. Great. Stuff.

Great concept!

This is a great idea! It will bring audio artists more exposure than anything else: best exposure is through flash, so what would be better than a flash about the music? Animation and audio need some work. While I think the animation part is optional, it serves the cause, you should really do something about the audio! Needs better quality. Also, you should work on your talking, I'm sure there are voice actors who would love to help you out!
Now, I'll let some input from the bbs flow into this review, because it's important for your concept. What I didn't like was the the tight margin you drew. It's ok imo to keep this open only for regulars. It is a way to determine dedication, especially to this site. I didn't like the regulation of music being streamable, complete album and with cover artwork. The grade of seriousness can't be measured in the fact someone compiles his music to an album/ep. For one anyone can do that and for another, there are artists on newgrounds who fit their music to the needs of different things, like ... well you know: movies and games. They don't want/need their music to be displayed on an album like compilation, but some of them do awesome stuff as well. This point seems to be unnecessary.
But I won't end this wall of text without saying that this could be the first step to something great!


YouriX responds:

I have to admit my voice acting is far from perfect. But this is after all the YouriX Music Reviews. Also i think is fitting for a show to be made by a musicians for musicians.

Audio quality is hard since i dont have the expensive equipment to do so. I WILL work on it though ;)

About the thread rules.
Well the rules work more as guidelines not laws. I might just go ahead and review a seprate track or talk about a musician i like. But having a album shows that you are at some point serious about your music production. But the musicians that make songs only for flash and games will catch my eye and i might just review them because of there achievement! Believe me i scout every corner of the audioportal. Since its now my job ;)

Anyways glad you show support to this show and not only will you help yourself but other musicians as well! :)

great work!

That was amazing! When I had dreams on a really high temperature, it was kinda like that: the strangest things happening, all different, but all causing each other seemlessly.

what?!

Are you saying smoking is bad for me?! Does the government know about that? I am so glad somebody was bold enough to enlighten me with this wisdom, because now I know and I will stop smoking immediately, thusly living forever, right?

nah, I'm gonna leave your "review" up as a testament to the ultimate of text based sarcasm. Like I care what my score is, this is a school project. My choice of topics were this, cancers of the digestive system, or problems with donor organs. So yeah, sue me for picking an easy topic to research.

sigh

Yeah, it's very well done. Yeah, the transitions are fluent. Yeah, the sound is awesome. Yeah, the wubbles are great. Yeah, the wubs have reference to the pre drop part.
I just don't know how much of take-a-song-and-shove-some-dubstep-up on-it i can take anymore.

nice'n glitchy

I love glitch sounds. I'd love IDM if it was more in my fucking face. This seems to be on the verge between classical and IDM, just because of this one pluck sound you used. I honestly don't like that instrument too much, but it sounds awesome backwards. You could have put more effort into mastering, sound is pretty flat, doesn't have any highlights.

Fun stuff!

Lol! I listened to the first chords and scrolled up, expecting midimachines name. Then I read the description. I talked to him about that minor subdominant he used in his last two submissions and now you come along doing the exact same thing with 8-bit style music... funny stuff :D!
You combined 8-bit melodies with some solid drums, they come out nicely, have a lot of pressure and both parts fit well together. The only complaint i have is that you don't ever change the chord progression. A b-part to this a-part would have made it a lot better. At least you don't drag it out for more than you do, but this has potential to be even better! Keep it up!


Or4nges responds:

Yeah his song was catchy as hell. I had to do something or it'd never get out of my head. But thanks for the critique too! My biggest problem when writing a song is failing to change the chord progression once in a while.
