It's a pretty nice and summry song! Has a farm-like feel to it, probably because of that... banjo? Is that a banjo... maybe just a regular guitar with a certain style of playing? Sounds good!
Yeah, it's a banjo xP
I wanted to broaden my horizons a tad from the electro style and one of my most popular songs was
"To live and die in Dixie"
So I made another southern-flavored piece.
It's cute, but I didn't give it as much attention as it deserved
This sounds more like dance than DnB, considering the surplus of instruments apart from particularly drums and bass. :) But either way, it sounds good, it's got that light feeling the original had too. Simple; spiffy, keep it going!
Yeah, that makes sense. Thank you so much, I nearly jumped out of my seat seeing an actual comment on one of my works XD
Not bad for a first track! I guess most people have an easier time with the syncing when they use sequences rather than keyboards, and don't really need to time anything in. In that aspect, this really isn't bad! Melody's nice and atmospheric too. Nice work!
Thank you very much. :D
I'm also a bit unhappy with the volume, in hindsight. The instruments are somewhat unbalanced and a bit loud.
I like the higher layer, the one we hear the most of. Seems to contrast a bit with the background one, and though it sounds good it always seems to play without aim, it's jazzy and diverse but all the same a bit diffuse - it never really gets to that point where I immerse myself in the sound. Keep it going!
Thanks alot for the good points! I actually agree with what what you said. Though, now that I'm listening to it, the top layer has too much "smack" to each note. I tried doing that to make it contrast with the bottom layer but i'm not quite sure if that complemented each other well or the song in general. Anyways, thanks alot for the good critique and thanks for all the comments on my art as well!
Beautiful. Feels like saying anything more than that is just superfluous here! :P The rhyme scheme's perfect, the words playful and natural, music sharp yet atmospherically ambient, and the song's clear and angelic. It's that kind of music that gives you goosebumps. Masterful music!
^__^ Thank you so much! The lyrics aren't mine, however. Lol it's an old British folk song. The poetry's ancient. ;)
Regardless, I'm really glad you like my rendition of it! Thanks for listening!
Man I wish the audio quality had been better back then! Seems like it could've been really emotional if the recording device really managed to capture it all. Guitar is good, voice doesn't sound bad but it doesn't really come across either. Did you ever write down the lyrics btw? That'd be neat to have in the description. Hope you'll keep posting!
Ask and ye shall receive. Thanks for your feedback, the lyrics are now posted. Annnnggggsssttttt
Intense! The 'Whoop-dee-doo-da' seems to somehow trivialize the matter of the music. It's gritty, grinding, grimy... pretty great! Does feel a bit monotone in the long run, but excluding the potential for more variation (well, the score's based on that) it seems flawless, methodically melodic and moody. Nice work!
This is quite an old song, but thanks for the review!
I like the boppy intro type, and how the eighties-ish synth kicks in and brings a continuous warmth and wonder to the track. It's a smooth leisurely paced melody, with a good mood. Nice work!
Thanks bud : DD
Pretty awesome tune. It sounds like... crystal, or metamorphosis, a wavy voyage through a world pulsating with light and wonder. Not really like a boss theme IMO but it's energetically ambient; smooth. Nice work!
I see what you mean. It was my first attempt at a boss theme, so hopefully the next one I make fits better, lol. Thank you for the review.
Just listening to that piano man. :) The intro feels a bit long, but once you get into the pace it's natural compared to the overall piece; each section slowly phases into the next, but I guess the main difference with the piano is that there is no phasing here, there's just the one melody that loops and goes on and you're waiting for something to happen until it does. Still, the beginning is my favorite part, the rest is pumped up and ambiently energetic, but the piano is down-to-Earth and melodic in a way the rest can't hope to be.
I like the experimental vibe that kicks in for the latter half, and how it fades back to piano towards the end with some added instrumental interference. Overall it's a smooth and fluently morphing tune. And sound quality's great. Nice work!
Thanks man! I agree the intro is a little long, but as I said in the description, I wasn't able to do everything I wanted by the end, so that intro was left the way it is now.
