So Satisfying, Man
This was beautiful. The guitar sounded crystal cool with perfect distortion. The accents (most notably, the bends) were well-timed and professionally executed. The drums were exciting, with a hyper bass one minute and a reggae mix the next.
I never would've thought to make this song metallic, but you did a great job with it. I could listen to this for hours on end. Keep up the great work, man.
Strange, but Stylish
Well, this was definitely interesting.
I thought you did a great job composing the build-up. Yes, it was a bit long, but it helped usher in the myriad of strange riffs to come. Without the intro, this song would've felt even more erratic and outlandish. I was further impressed by the wide range of percussion throughout the piece. This, accompanied by the echoing synth, created the cool, jungle/ocean feel you were going for.
This was a great composition, man. Once you can see past the strangeness of it, you will come to admire its excellent workmanship.
Well i'm impressed on the attentiveness of your review. You managed to grasp the concept. As i said in the response before this, I wanted to create something that hasn't really been done yet if not before. Thus the drumline-ish feel to the song. I never have or will make to claim to awesomeness though, so if ever you can think of how this song can be better, please please let me know! I am a big noob when it comes to this and always looking to improve.
anyways. thanks for your time and the review.
The first thing that struck me about this piece was the impeccable sound quality. This amplified the perfect balance between the sections of the orchestra and the piano. What struck me next was the meticulous use of dynamics. Excellent flows of crescendos and decrescendos accentuated the passionate nature of the song.
Even so, perhaps the most impressive aspect of the composition was its ability to be interpreted in a number of ways. I believe you correctly classified it as, "a sweet romantic piece," but I also sensed a touch of sorrow and heroism in the theme. This bittersweet quality of the song enhanced its character and brilliance.
Fantastic work. Deserves nothing less than a 10.
The more you listen to it, the better it gets. You have an interesting blend of techno and funk going on here, and you managed to make the most of the odd mix. The powerful bass drum and offbeat hi-hat set the groove. You nailed the rest with a funky, wah-wah style synth riff and the electric xylophone (? haha) melody.
Great job on this one man, especially considering it was your first. I hope you can funk things up again sometime.
It does almost rival Victor Wooten. You're a very talented bassist and musician my man. This just oozed funk unlike anything in the Audio Portal. Perfect rhythm and syncopation.
I hope you do end up evolving this a bit, because it's one heck of a start. Keep jammin'.
Powerful and Energetic!
Aye, this tune be capable of yer ol' arse kickin'!
I loved it, man. It does sound quite a bit like the TSO, because it's effortless to imagine this composition in traditional symphonic orchestra mode. However, you rocked this one out perfectly, with several instrument choices that I never would have blended together (ie. harpsichord and hyper bass drum). There were countless creative sub-melodies bouncing in and out, all of which contributed to the unique, "piratey" feel. Great distribution as well -the cello and bass section would sustain the classic pirate harmony while the electric guitar would burst in with the flawless solo(s).
All in all, this was a zesty mix of piratey metal that offered one heck of a listen. This and "Holy Pirate Crusaders" have had me head-bangin' for the past hour! Awesome work!
