Didn't strike me as... well anything really.
It wasn't a horrible failed attempt at making music. It was just a... a nothing. It didn't go anywhere...
Repetition can work if you have an epic sound, but you didn't.
I would have liked a larger vocal pitch range
Not to say that it was really good, I just think that you tend to stick to a rather small vocal range and I think it's responsible for the small feeling of bland-ness I get from your music.
I love your lyrics, btw.
The different melodies needed to flow better
or worse if contrast is what you are going for.
Although each melody was different and did work in the same song, it still felt like you got a bunch of little 1-2 second 'ditty's and put them together end to end to complete the song.
Somehow lacked strength.
Nevertheless, it sounded pretty cool at parts.
'Who cares what you think?!' Rang out behind her.
Going and hiding in a un-observed corner of nowhere in particular.
Look up. A smile.

...just lovely. (The music that is)
Better build up than the other one
The other one got straight into it.
This one built itself up to a nice melody for a bit. But again, it was the same few bars or so of each instrument over and over again.
I do see that you put the layers on them so that it wasn't exactly the same. And there IS 2 new parts. They were there, but it took what, 3 minutes before you see them. After that, they come together reasonably nicely.
But I still feel like there is a problem with the actual putting the different parts together. I think all of the instruments are trying to be heard over the top of each other or something like that.
I will look into that for future mixes of this track. I had some other professional advice for the intro also. the idea is getting the track to where it has good clarity and tight percs to the beat. if those fall in line perfectly the melody or parts that seem repetitive will be all the more addictive. normally i dont keep anything steady in my tracks.
Thanks for taking a close listen to the track. and see you around!
It sounds pretty darn good. But there's not enough in it for a 6 minute song. It started well. But got a little boring after 3 minutes of hearing what sounded like: "Chocolate Rain..." so many times. Maybe some different notes throughout the song to keep up with the changing music?
to each his own, i guess
Stayed interesting throughout, and sounded cool the whole time.
After hearing this, I agree that Electric Jazz Metal IS a fun genre.
The title fits more with the beginning of the song than the whole thing.
Maybe a bit more "Electric" stuff in, or maybe make it a bit more prominent, but either way, this was awesome.
Thanks dude! The title was just something that sounded cool in my head and seemed fitting for this wacky piece of music. Appreciate the review man!
4 notes, 2 drum instruments, and only one little tune that was repeated far far too many times. And the little tune wasn't all that great either.
You could have changed SOMETHING SOMEWHERE!
You really need to have got more than just one little tune make, and if possible make them flow into each other or maybe change the panning of the notes. SOMETHING!
I think I might be being a bit generous with a 3/10 for this.
I think you might be being a little too harsh...
I'm new to this, and I'm actually starting to realize that I repeat the tunes in my songs. It's good feedback that you are telling me, to change the tune, but the way you are saying it (you keep stressing it over and over) isn't the best way to get it across. Say what you need to say to get your point across on how I need to improve and at LEAST have the courtesy to tell me "good try" when you are finished...you guys are too rude and take everything too serious when you are reviewing.
Thx for the feedback, it is definitely noted...but you do need to realize that I'm just warming up with these songs/loops, a LITTLE encouragement would of been nice...not just raw negative (although good) feedback with no emotion attached to it. Regardless, thx for the review anyway...
I think the problem I had with it was that it wasn't so "clean".
I'm not sure if that's the word for it; like a more pure sound with less distortion. But, yeah, if it was more "clean" I think it would be better.
Other than that, I think the snare may have been a bit too loud, along with some other drum parts, but mostly the snare.
Still, a very nice song.
I might have to do more work with Compression, I noticed the bass is a little higher in volume which in turn makes other sounds be a lil more muddy. and with a limiter that is also being used I might have my central band of frequency range off leading to why my snare might stick out in clarity more than other instruments.
Thanks for your awareness I have been building in surround sound these days instead of flat speakers or headphones so most of my work is slightly off with treble ranges.
Took a while to get going...
Not sure if it was worth the wait...
Made me wonder what was going to happen. I was thinking maybe you'd do the trance thing with the "smash" and then really racy. You didn't, but you DID make an interesting tune. I liked the progressiveness of the whole thing.
You doubled the tempo of the beat once. Maybe do it again? (I like racy). Then a return to the original beat for a little while.
Or you could do the cool thing and thing of a new tune to change it to. You know, something that fits, but is new.
It was incomplete, rarely a high score for that.
