This is like perfect for Need for Speed or Midnight Club. Maybe even Unreal Tournament. I think it could use a little better mixing in some places. Then again, it would lack a bit of that "oldskool screamer" charm.
Everything up to 2:30 feels like it could make for a really epic loop. Overall, I like this. It's obviously not your best since it is an oldie, but I really do like songs that have that oldskool sound like this one does. It's refreshing to hear something that sounds like it's from 1999 minus the 8-bit samples.
Yeah, I have tons of old modules like this (both my own and by other oldskool trackers) and it's weird how when I start listening to them they feel so outdated and flat but a minute or so into it, when the ears readjust, they sort of kick into effect and then they're just fun to listen to. :3
Thanks for the feedback!
Great job on the vocals. The overall mix is pretty smooth. I like how it breaks down into almost a trance step instead of aggrostep. I also find the dubstep growls and effects to be fairly original, rarely using an overused effect. There is a personal spin to everything here; very little generic anything. Great use of subtle glitch effects!
Thank you! I appreciate you taking the time to give me a review. I read them all and everyone counts!
I think this is pretty original, and I like the variety instruments. However, and maybe this is just me, it seems like the song kind of clashes with itself. I don't exactly know what it is - maybe the filter effects or the harmonies or something else - but the song is a bit chaotic sounding; it's got this tension bordering on unpleasantness. But I do actually like what you've made here. It's an interesting blend of many sounds and themes. I can't recall exactly what this reminds me of, but it is good what I hear.
After listening to it a few times now, it has an oldskool feeling I find reminiscent of the early 90's tracker scene.
Upbeat, a journey of a struggle, than a rise back up facing some obstacles than a triumph.
I feel like this works better as a loop than a song in its current mix; the ending feels a bit too abrupt. A few small tweaks could easily make this a seamless loop. (this is the only reason why I'm giving you only 9/10; an oversight perhaps or running out of ideas. Everything else is perfect for what it is
I like it! I feel like it could use some focus, but may that slight tension is intentional; maybe there are too many instruments - too much variety? (just my opinion)
Either way good job on the mixing, transitions, and mastering; it's got great production values.
Awesome track. Really getting down to this. I especially like that dirty, wet "yaug" synth. The song kept building up and up and never really released until the end. I'll be jamming out to this one for a while.
This song is a blast! It has one of the sickest outros I've heard pretty much ever. The last minute and a half is really good, not to mention the rest of it. Really getting a "monster within" vibe from this. So much awesome! Love it!
This is awesome! Fast, stomping, pumping beat. Great breakdowns. Tight trance-y sections. Yet another F-777 masterpiece.
This has got to be insane in Audiosurf! Do you mind if I make a video of me playing it?
I'm almost moved to tears...
As a fellow Aspy, this... I can't find the right words. You put it better than I could have: "we are confusing, we are angry, but we try to be as much friendly as possible." For me, it's a gift and a curse. It gives me a unique perspective on things, but it came with a price: medicine, social integration exercises, and those "bad" days at school. I will always be dealing with myself, trying to gain acceptance.
Great composition, but if you master it, it would be perfect. I'm not too familiar with classical composition - yet - so I can't really offer any advice on arrangement or particulars. But what I heard worked, and you carried the energy of the song throughout. A felt a constant back and forth, up and down, rise and fall, with a heavy down in the middle and ending with some feeling of triumph or peace. To me, this completely embodies the struggle of dealing with Asperger syndrome.
I don't really like Hip Hop...
But I like this! But I have a hard time hearing the lyrics. I like how it is dragged on, but perhaps the beat is a tad too loud--it slightly overpowered your voice. I still can't understand some of the verses. Maybe you could put the lyrics in the comments?
I'll do that shortly! Thanks for the review, score and download! I appreciate it!
Interesting blend of styles
The song does not clash with itself, which for me happens sometimes when I try and take two different genres and put them together, so good job there.
It invokes that feeling of mystery at the beginning, leading to "discovery" at 1:38. Good overall feeling to it.
The back synth starting at 1:15 could be a bit louder. It sounds fairly silent to me and interferes with the feeling of the song imo. And it starts to drag on a bit for me after about 3 minutes, but as you said it being good for clubs, that's a good thing (maybe).
Overall, I like it, and it's good to hear something different in the dubstep genre, especially a slower, dance-able one, but it doesn't really have that "something special" to make it stand out much above the rest. There is potential here for more, and I think it be would be something really cool if the full potential was reached.
In summary: done well for what it is, but I think there is room for improvement.
It has a good intro, but then it starts to get a bit repetitive. I'm not quite sure what you could do to improve it, but it has potential to be something more.
