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.
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.
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!
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.
This is very lame. The square solo doesn't change even once, the chord progression is what I'd call overused, no surprises, no nothing. The noisy bass rides one single note, hardly ever changing in sound aspects, the drums are more than generic. This whole story could have been told in one minute.
It is nicely mixed and mastered though.
The bass could only play one note without sounding retarded. I guess you don't like my poly rhythms either. :( It was more about the creation of the bass rather then the song. This was just a place to download it if someone wanted.
Just because I got #1 top 5 doesn't mean I deserved it.
Is this really a Zither? Sounds more like a Dulcimer to me, both great instruments though. I love the bassline, it spices up the simple (but well fitting) chord progression a lot and provides a warm feel! I'm not a fan of the duduk, with all the tiny ups and downs - something I usually can't stand. But you managed to not bug me with it, so big up!
Well, it's actually a music maker, those cheap ones that you can find in toy stores, sampled for Kontakt 4+
"The Music Maker is a dulcimer designed as a child's toy musical instrument. It is supplied with a guitar pick and some sheets that slide underneath the string telling you which strings to pluck from left to right. Featuring such hits as "Darling Clementine and Aura Lee etc ...."
First of all: Your singing is great! You have a great voice and are out of tune just a teeny bit, just the amount that makes it alive (I hate auto tuning!), but doesn't make it painful to listen to at all! Wonderful!
The song has a great atmosphere, it instantly puts me into some southern US state on a hot summer sunday - though I've never been to the US :)
The lighthearted and joyful feeling the song provides is a bit of a contrast to the lyrics that are actually pretty sad. But that's just perfect, because in my experience every relation to a woman turned out bittersweet.
Hi, Thanks for taking the time to listen and thank you for your very kind comments.
Thanks very much. This is the best review I've ever seen. It's so well written and you obviously put a lot of thought into how to phrase every sentence of this masterpiece.
If there was a nobel price for reviews, I'm sure you would be the undisputed winner!
i come to listen every now and then :D
Overall a solid song. The part from 1:00 onward is the strongest. Very nice sound, good harmonies, surprising 7th chord (I think? I know what you did there, I just don't know if it's called that).
You are kinda right about the post 2:00 part being like another song. If you make the chords return to the ... uhm, tonica (in english too?!) you know the main chord, every now and then, you would draw a stronger connection between the parts.
My main complaint would be the bassline in the starting part. You should scratch or redo that, it's harmonically off, but not in a good way.
Full score for sound, points off for harmonics. I'd like to hear this as a refined complete track though!
The bassline at the begging might be changed, but just slightly, I don't hear what's wrong with it though.
Maybe this time some "offharmony" is good. :P
This is just like a preview so the part at @2:00 will continue with that melody again so that it draws connection just like you said.
Thanks for the review.
Keep reaching for the stars! It changed a little around the 1:34 mark, when I switched off a large power supply over here.
I was hoping this hadn't been done on newgrounds. Now you get all the cool reviews like from the guy before me.
Anyways, your interpretation is pretty good. Imo very close to the original, but still distinct. Only complaint is it could have been just a little longer for my taste. Did you do it yourself, remixing it by what you hear or did you import a midi file?
