Excellent use of sounds here, really like the flow of it. This will probably end up in a Madness flash! xD
dont rag someone for making songs with male vocals when you use them too dumbass...
But these are my vocals queerbag... Not someone elses like you use
not the right title, but awesome piece
To start with...
Excellent song, i really love the opening and all of its transitions from phrase to phrase. You've done an excellent job with the chords and the keyboard like sounds as well. I find this to be a great piece for starring of into some daydream state. I understand that you took my advice (whether you ment to or not) and tried something out side your normal song scheme and I must say it turn out very very good.
However, I have noticed several things or aspects about this piece that really made me stop and thing when I've heard it the first time, realizing the second time that this something you usually wouldn't make, and even hearing this piece once I couldn't figure out why I was able to tell that until I've heard several more times.
For one, I have noticed that the unique transitional sounds and effects you normally would use in your works are completely absent from this piece. It's the various sounds miscellenious automations you normally use that makes your music stand out from others and its how everyone can tell that its something you've definitely made. With this piece, the slow and steadily building intro easily tells the listener that this is a piece made by F-777, however, it also lacks the full F-777 effect your music normally presents.
Also, I'm not too sure if it's the fact that this was something different for you to try, or maybe you just didn't know what to do with it, but I have noticed that there is almost no change in the overall melody! This little detail caught me off guard. Based on your previous works, I have found a pattern in your compositions that I have begun to try and build my works in a similar manor. From my analysis your music flows like this: " Intro > 1st melody > transition > body melody 1 > body melody 2 > transition > 2nd melody > trasition 2 > end"...
In this piece your song flow is more like this: "intro > 1st melody > 1st melody > transition > 1st melody (exstended) > end". It is this flow that sort of blends this song into most things everyone else makes. No offense, but it is becuase of this i have decided i couldn't give you a "10/10"(has given you a 5\5).
Overall, it is an excellent song none the less and it is another piece of yours that will be added to the favorites of my Newgrounds Album. In fact, most of your works are saved to my Album (PSP)!
And remember, if there is anything you'd like for me to review, just let me know and i'll get to it a.s.a.p. ^__^
So to start with...
I have not checked in on your original Silver Kiss, but i do like this version of the song. I gotta say you have many great sounds and melodies to start with, portraying a sort of euro/club feel to the groove of it. As for your start, its rather basic but fits best (i couldn't think of a better opening either). The opening was sort and it may not be appealing at first to most listeners, but shortly it does present a soft synth that keeps the person drawn. This is a good recovery.
After the soft synth come in you have a a basic body of the song, well... at least the first part of it anyways, and holds there for what sounds like a good 4 sentences. Afterward, you've somehow included a long transition (which was very nice btw). Somehow, its actually perfect to have that sort of transition in a song like this one, normally, vocals would have replaced that particular section of the song.
What i really like most about this song is that after the spacey transition, your song take a different twist, yet keeps to its original theme. This is something you dont hear all that often even on signed albums. You've created 2 bodies and lengthy transition that blends very well together. All in all, its an excellent song.
If you would like for me to review anything else... just message me... i dont mind ^__^
Wow! A great review :D
I'm glad my part of the song was able to replace the vocal part.
And I'm also glad you like the "spacey transition", the one that makes the song take a different twist. I made this transition in a creative outburst :D
Glad you liked it, and thanks for the constructivness.
Sounds like you've taken my advice. ^__^
First, your opening was much better than the last few you requested i review, this one was pretty much perfect and it would seem you have spent a lot of time on it, despite the fact that it does sound simple, but i can hear the difficulty in the automation's you used. so great job on those. I also like the fact that it was started with your basic 4x4 beat, but you've some how come up with a rather ear catching sequence of notes as far as your main and background melodies go.
Also, you've displayed an excellent use of sound effects in this piece. Normally, when a person is using sound effects such as those used in this particular song, they have a tendency to over do it, but you've used them not only well, but also throughout most of the song. I can assume that may have taken a bit to get right.
Although this is a great song (5/5 and 10/10), may i suggest using different beats? I have notice quite a while ago that you dont venture much into diverse drum patterns and I would consider it interesting how you would fair venturing slightly outside your style. Its no pressure or a coax really, but it'll be good to try something a bit off your style(I try that a lot, probably why my stuff doesn't end up as well as i want them). Also, toward the ending, it starts to sound a bit slow, like the overall tempo was slowing for some reason. Speaking of ending, love that last automation, it sounds rather simple but i know it isn't.
I understand what it is you are trying to pull off here, and let me tell you now that you are using the right sounds and lead instruments, but i'm not to sure i you are using the correct key signature. I believe it is when using the key signature that you have messed up. Its all about the series of notes you are using and i'm not to sure if you know the set of notes which correspond best to your song and what you have made so far. If anything, this song could have been great but you gotta get your notes right, plus it sounds way to retro. May i suggest throwing in some different variaties of melodies?
Really, all you have to do is to take your time. You are rushing this way to much and you just gotta take it slow. try it out next time and you'll see the difference.
cheers for advice, but i still dont understand the key signature thing
so to start...
Your start is amazing to start with, nice angelic melody that draws in the listener, then quickly transitions into a pretty nice trance song. Ih anything its lovely. How ever, when listening to this just on the second time, it starts to so very retro. In my opinion, you could try using a different sequence of notes for the second main melody so that way, even with your transitions it adds diversity yo your song.
All in all, its a great song with very good transitions. Let me know when you have something new posted. ^__^
so to say....
As i said to the first demo, you have good melodies, but you still aren't applying them the way you want them to be. I know for a fact that you know exactly how you want this to sound, but you keep rushing it, and that's the part that's killing you. This isn't how you want this to sound, but then again, this song will help you improve on your next, just take your time and experiment. You've already proven you can make very good melodies, so why not take your time and prove you can make these songs the way YOU want them to be?
I don't know what you did, but when you changed the intro, the notes you used seemed to be out of key at some points, you may want to take a look at that. Your drum sequence is way too basic, and i would advise changing it up a bit. However, i found that the points of 1:53 through 2:44 hold a lot of potential that you are not utilizing, and it was too long. The duration of that particular segment would not have mattered so much if you knew how to execute it properly. It would have been good to add some pads there, or add in some break beats too. But may i point out that your biggest mistake is repeating the melody over and over and over... its way too retro and most people dont enjoy retro, so you really gotta watch out for that. In my opinion, you should highlight each melody or group those main melodies with one or maybe two supporting melodies and making each one its own section in the song. then using one distinct melody as like the main theme you'll revert to every so often. People love to have a song where there is diversity and yet a main theme it comes back to, though its just an opinion.
This is not a bad song so dont get me wrong, and instead of viewing this review as something potentially negative, just view it as practice. All in all, just make what you are and try to let it flow like your personality. Though, i should make this suggestion:
When making your music, listen to it over and over and over, listen to it every chance you get, you'll start to notice that it doesn't really sound how you want it, and usually you'll catch your mistakes. Its just a tip but do what ever suites you. Don't worry if you dont get it right the next time, we've all had to start somewhere right?
If you have taken my review to thought and would like for me to review any of your up coming musics or flash, then please just send me a link asking me to review it, i don't have to be on a first name bases, but i do love to review music^^ Especially trance! xD
cheers, i'm going to start working on this one again soon
