"Just a little short of professional..."
Percussion IMO should not stop completely at :29 and 1:12... leave like a quarter note hi-hat or something.
I agree with Chron on maybe diversifying... at 1:45 a guitar solo would be much appreciated. The beginning and ending however, I feel are effectively simple.
Just a little short of professional... needs vocals, which I may or may not provide. :) Depends on how crappy I sound.
Hey G9, Maybe you're right with regads to percussion, a ratatat would have worked pretty well, but I do prefer it with gaps, especially early on. haha yea, 1.45 does suit a guityar solo, im in total agreement, I aint a fret wanker, i can riff away but solos aint a massive thing of mine, then again I only need 20 seonds worth a most...hmmm good spot.
Hey bang vocals on all you want, if you work in cubase I'll send you the project files.
thanks for the review.
"...who ever said vintage isn't cool?"
As said by Chron, "this song is begging for vocals tho - some nice brit vocals". You should really collaborate with a vocalist (or maybe train up in your own vocals, never heard you sing) and ultimately complete this song by adding the human voice. Pretty vintage, but who ever said vintage isn't cool? Great percussion, nice guitar melodies... a more dominant bass would have added some more depth to the scene. Chron's comments about the harshness of the guitar are greatest in truth in and around 2:40. Some tone tweaks should make it sound a lot more relaxed, as said.
Vocals are on their way G9, just a matter of time thats all. Vintage is indeed cool my friend. I know that bass needs sporting i might have to hunt some decent monitors down when i get paid so i can mix it right. right 2:40 duly noted. Thanks for the review mate.
Unimaginative percussion and repetitive melody.
The beginning synth was somewhat dissonant (almost seemed detuned) and the kick drum hammered on with an overall percussion beat that was a bit unimaginative. Melody also was very repetitive. Not to bash or anything, those are just my thoughts. I feel kind of bad already.
"...producer of vintage nostalgia..."
Sounds familiar... like the Raconteurs, kind of, and this other Scottish band I remember hearing... it'd be amazing with vocals, and sounds a tad repetitive (at :56 it sounds like it's repeating itself from the beginning). It's the solo guitar that gives it this kind of vintage European feeling... the power chord rhythm guitar is another producer of vintage nostalgia, but not solely derived from European roots. Great work man.
"...the song under the vox was good."
As said by previous, the song under the vox was good. It'd sound much nicer with louder instruments. Not too sure about the vox, however. A distort/wah filter would probably add nicely to the effect. Keep it working.
Potentially good, but the guitars were extremely messy. Bass was alright... replace the main guitar with a synth, and I want to see how that sounds. The guitar should be a long-lasting power chord, as opposed to the main melody here. That'll make a great track.
"...Swedish version of Frontline Assembly."
You seem like a Swedish version of Frontline Assembly. It's a bit too busy though, and the snare was unnervingly repetitive. Don't know how to fix that. The addition of a guitar would truly make this an industrial masterpiece.
"...overall a nice sound."
Slightly Daft Punkish, as said before. Flowing, a bit repetitive, but overall a nice sound. I can't specify what to add here, but there's something missing. Perhaps it's just personal preference of sound.
"I wonder how a rapper would handle this one."
This is great for Hip Hop. In a genre half-drowned in repetition, this track brings a lot of variety. Not sure if it's the quality of the instrument, track, but some of the world instruments don't sound deep enough. I wonder how a rapper would handle this one. Beat's catchy, composition's tight.
"...I'm loving the fresh, clean sound."
I'm getting the metaphor man... I feel that the guitar should be stronger though. I'd love to make a remix of this, if you'll allow. This is a deviation from your previous work and I'm loving the fresh, clean sound. The percussion is very realistic (what'd you use) and adds a lot to the track. The track is a bit repetitive, but I still like it. I only wish that the sun smiled down on my back here on the west coast, instead of incinerating it.
