Nice

A great song man. Nice job.

Good Things:
-Amazing instrumentation, many things happening at once, which is a good thing.
-Nice strings and cultural instruments.

Bad Things:
-I kept waiting for a hip-hop beat to come in, but than I realized it was in the classical section... Damn it, haha.

Not much to say for this one, other than I was expecting some hip-hop integration, heh. Keep em' coming man, 5/5, peace.

K-Dm responds:

lol i actually did want this to be a hip hop song at first...
but i had trouble combining the cultural drums with hip hop drums
so i ended up just leaving it classical lol

this is also the first track i released using east west
which is y my orchestrals might sound a lil better =)

neways glad u liked it
sry i left out the hip hop haha

K-Dm

Nice

Very good song, sounds great!

Good Things:
-Female vocalist was very good. Damn! :)
-Good use of strings, melodies blended well together.
-Smooth transitions.
-Nice flute.

Bad Things:
-I feel like some more powerful drums could've been used. Easy to overlook though.
-Some dark male choir could've been used at the more sinister parts. Like near the end accompanying the brass.
-I'm a fan of modernized classical songs, and this piece would sound great with some guitar and drums, but that's just me.

Nice job man, to you and the female vocalist, she's amazingly talented. 5/5, peace.

MaestroRage responds:

I agree with all the cons, I don't know if I can get some guitar in there, but you've sparked my interest! Now I will definitely have to try it out...

thanks for the review, i'm glad you liked it!

Nice

Hell yeah man, I'm likin' this!

Good Things:
-Drums were really good. Had a nice heavy feel to em'.
-Great choir, really good integration. Nice intro as well.
-Guitar was pretty damn good, yeah, artificial, but acceptable. I've heard much worse.
-Snare sounded kind of strange sometimes. But most of the time the drums were kickass. Toms were great.
-Nice strings usage.

Bad Things:
-Well yes, the guitar would be a lot better if it was real, but it sounds good.
-5:28 sounded kind of weird, guitar solo I'm assuming, but eh. Good though. Weird sound effects, which are solos I'm assuming, recur throughout the song but they sound alright.
-Song was really long, not sure if it's a bad thing but damn, haha.
-You seriously gotta get some real guitarists to work on this! I'll try to contact some right now here on NG! You should too man, this could be some epic shit right here if a real guitarist had some fun with it!

Well great job man, keep em' coming! 5/5, peace. Get a guitarist!

TiiBag responds:

Thanks for the review. I made this one a while ago haha a lot of my techniques have improved (although lack of a guitarist or skill to play my crappy guitar still remain).

The weird sound effects I believe are just my lack of a good harpsichord xD
...or the lack of a good synth solo instrument (like a saw or sine).

Anyway I know this reply is like 5 months late but I don't post music often (because I don't finish most of it) so I rarely check my account, but thanks for the review xD

Nice

Bout' time you made shit like this man, haha.

Good Things:
-Liked the string intro obviously.
-Like the way you used a basic "off to war" type snare to take the beat rather than a hip-hop type one.
-Nice brass, impressive.
-Nice string melody variations, Iike how you kept this song from being too repetitive.
-Smooth ending.

Bad Things:
-The snare drop at around 22 seconds was cool, but I think like 3 or 4 slow heavy beats would've worked better than that rapid kinda roll for the drop.
-At 48 seconds, I feel like heavy timpani hits would've worked better rather than that dull sounding kick.
-That recurring jingling bell effect in the background really got on my nerves and sounded kind of random.
-Choir woulda worked really well in this song.

Good job man, do more stuff like this, haha. 5/5, peace.

flashmac responds:

Your right about pretty much everything. Thanks a lot for the review

Nice

Pretty good song man, I discovered you a couple weeks ago and I've become a big fan, especially of you orchestral hip-hop songs. Like "Haters Burn Eazy" for example. Normally I would leave a long review but for now I just wanna tell you to keep the epic orchestral hip-hop songs comin' man. 5/5, peace.

stl-product314 responds:

lol That's whats up man. Appreciate the reveiw

Nice

Hell yes, epic orchestral hip-hop! Haha, nice work guys, time to bitch.

Good Things:
-Nice soloing string instruments, sounded really authentic.
-Bells were nice, but eh, I felt like you kind of overused em'.
-Brass was some of the best I've heard, the high-pitched and low backing melodies worked really in the climaxes of the song.
-The build-ups to the climaxes were great, got you really pumped. Drops were brilliant.
-Nice backing strings.
-Absolutely loved that string and piano part hat started around 3:55. Epiccc, haha.
-Bass kick fit well, but that clap... eh...
-Cool chime part that first started at 4:58. Haven't really seen that used much.
-Damn, that brass near the end was really intense, I like it, haha.
-I know I'm mentioning that brass a lot, but it's a huge improvement, kicked ass in this song.
-I like how the kick suddenly got more powerful at the climaxes of the song, but the clap... Man, just got way too overpowering and heavy...
-Like how you alternate a snare and a clap for the beat.

Bad Things:
-Piano just didn't really hit the right tone in this. Maybe an octave too high? I'm not sure, should've been more echo-ey or something. I know I always say that but it really helps to make the song sound fuller and more dramatic.
-Clap didn't really work as well. Sounded too overpowering, and I don't know, the tone of the clap didn't sound right for the song, sounded too heavy and out in the open.
-The backing strings always seem to sound a bit too high-pitched like in "Liberation," especially near the end of this song. But eh, w/e.
-Piano solo ending was kinda weird, didn't really flow well. Especially starting around 5:43, with that random note at the end.
-Snare sounded cool and had a nice echo-ey effect. But I think it should've been a bit more faint at the beginning and slowly built up. It should also be especially faint when it's backing the soloing instruments like that part that started around 2:16.
-Drop for the main beat that came in at around 24 seconds was kind of sudden. I dunno, maybe something to make the build-up and entry for the main beat more anticipated? But as I said before, drops for the climaxes were the shit.

Well, what is there to say? Great job you two, epic orchestral hip-hop at it's peak. Keep em' coming you guys! Definite 5/5, peace! Hope you guys plan tweak this a bit by the way, but it's cool if you don't, sounds great as it is really.

Zajed responds:

ye i realized it too that the clap is too loud at the end and too dominating

im not gonna say anything about the good things you mentioned lol, but im trying to destroy your bad arguments muahaha

-i actually planned a piano solo but i dunno the notes ended up in randomness, so we cancelled it
-well i guess the high pitchyness is a problem with the east west vst, if not i didnt managed it to fix that lol not yet :/
-actually i wanted to bring in more variation to the ups and downs, but this whole project was consuming 2 gigs of ram so i had to be careful i wasnt sure too add more things because i was afraid that my programm crashes, it even crashed one time lol

since im fed up with the ram consume of east west im looking for a way to save some ram ''less is more'' or something like that, so the next time you get more variation in the build ups but i guess this is gonna take abit time, anyways

thanks fgor the great review, a pleasure as usual
much appreciation

Nice

Nice man, got a lot better, but I still got some bitchin' to do. ;)

Good Things:
-That intro that ended at around 12 seconds I found to be kind of unnecessary. I think it'd be better if you just started the song off with that badass screechy noise that started around that 12 second mark.
-Again, like the groovy kinda "southern" feel this song has for some reason, haha.
-Drums, well to be honest I don't know much so I'll let those other metal people handle that, heh. Sounded fine to me though. :P
-Metaljonus kicks some ass solo-wise but I'm pretty sure you can hold your own too Xeno, haha.
-Tone, w/e, kicks ass.
-Liked how the song ended with that heavy riff and cool string sub-tone. Yeah, that might've been unintentional but w/e.

Bad Things:
-I didn't really like that part that started around 2:45. Eh, I dunno, I find that in my metal songs I don't really like parts when the snare is just banging a loud steady beat, it get's kinda annoying. :P

Good job man, lookin' forward to the "solo" version of this song, keep em' coming man, 5/5, peace.

Xenogenocide responds:

ahh well, I wouldn't have it any other way now dude. I'm seriously thinking of creating a build up to the 'snare banging' bit because it just simply adds more of a variety to it.

Love your critics though dude,
keep 'em coming!

Nice

Liked it man, good stuff.

Good Things:
-Lived the drums, especially the snare, fit really well.
-Background strings were nice, could've been used more though, like some independent string melody here and there.
-Nice piano work, cool echo-ey feel.

Bad Things:
-Part at 3:05 was kinda weird. The re-entrance was just too sudden and I thought the song like glitched or something. You should've made the melodies fit together more over that pause and have some faint strings during that pause to signify that the song wasn't over yet. Or you could've just end the song there, that could' work too.
-This song need a climax of some sort. Or a better drop before the drums come in. Make the listeners anticipate the main beat and melody coming in.
-Hi-hat things at the beginning sounded kinda weird...

Nice song man, keep em' coming. 5/5, peace.

T-Free responds:

Thank you for your critic, that's very helpful for me, Omgwtfcritz!
I will correct all these bad things as soon as I can and hope that this song will be greater than before.^^

Nice

Nice man, some good stuff right here.

Good Things:
-Great guitar, pretty sure it was synth, but either, it sounded great.
-That voice... added a nice effect, very unique.
-Cool combination of genres. Techno/hip hop, rock, and classical. Not a fave combo of mine but w/e. Normally I would just prefer symphonic metal alone but that's a personal preference.
-Nice usage of piano.
-Choir in the intro was really good. Really established the mood of the song well. Nice piano in that part as well.
-Cool ending with that echo-ey thud effect.

Bad Things:
-All I can think of are the synth effects, but that's really just cuz' I don't like techno much, again, personal preference I guess.
-Drums, I dunno, sometimes they sounded kinda weird, like they were too compressed. The toms kinda got on my nerves. Everything else drum-wise sounded fine though; cymbals and snare.

Nice job man, keep em' coming, you got skill. 5/5, peace.

NemesisTheory responds:

Thanks!
I can agree on the drums, but somehow complex drums didn't seem to fit at all so they sound kind of lazy now.

but it's something I'll see about handling in the near future, don't worry :)

Again, thanks for the review and scores!

Nice

Not much to say for this one, but I dunno, this sounds like such a stoner song to me, haha. This the song that plays when you got the bong out, heh.

Devastus responds:

Stoner song? That's exactly what it is, by good man :P
