I'm very glad you did something a bit different. The production quality since the days of say, Intrinsic, has definitely improved, but I can still hear bits of both of your styles!
The use of the vocal clips reminded me of Rameses B in a good way, and the percussion was definitely working.
The only two (hopefully constructive) criticisms I have are firstly that the piano is very close on the sound stage, which is good for stuff like pop but for both energetic and expansive themes, a reverb drench send or some stereo widening could go a long way. The piano just wasn't quite as grand as I *personally* prefer it but you know, it's your piece.
Secondly the bass wasn't optimal, I LOVED the pacing of it, but generally in DnB the low end is brought up a little more, sometimes with very slight sidechaining from the kick which gives that same awesome pulse you pulled off. At least you didn't go too loud with it, I guess.
I'm just saying both the good and bad because I know this was a bit different for you both to do, so setting out what worked is good!
Nice work though, that's why it's 5 stars to me.
Definitely feeling the production level increase! Thanks for your insightful feedback, we'll definitely reflect on that. and on the comments on the various touches - definitely see your point of view. Thank you for listening as always FL :)
Some of your hardest drops, some unique sounds, REALLY smooth mastering, and DnB beats in places.
So yeah, I LOVE this, man! Keep up the awesome work.
Just let me finish this cereal first.
I'm not a huge fan of classic rock style, but I can see past that for the music.
I notice your voice is more defined and smooth after just months since the last attempt. It sounds... Good in most places. Like more than anyone would expect from a vocal piece from nowhere.
I actually like this! xD
I'm slowly going off house, but I was made up when I saw you released something new regardless of genre.
The emotion in the melodies that's become your signature is present, plus the beat is very well mixed in and smooth, showing huge progress over just a few older works.
Always a pleasure, and thanks for making something that kind of helped me forget how messed up things are getting. x3
Glad you enjoyed! Thanks for letting me know.
Just to let you know I still exist. I'm just busy with stuff. Not even all music or exams, but just weird things people wouldn't expect of me. I am sorry for not reviewing all your work.
This track is obviously very passionate, and the sound is clearer and more powerful than your old work, showing great improvement as well as an obvious good reason for the song.
I'm bad at saying supporting things, but good work and RIP Rainheart's nan.
lol hey! its all good matey, i dont expect you to review everything lol. Glad to know you doing good and keeping busy and thank you for the review!
Your voice is actually good, the mixing and structure is good, and the electro drop is very climactic and SO catchy!
My mood is even better now!
I'l get this review done quickly; The track feels a bit empty but the percussion is very well mixed and the melody has a very trippy and expansive feel. Also, a bit more variation and a new ending will send review scores right up!
Haha, that is very good to hear! Thank you for your time to write this review :)
Wow that's gentle. I like this a lot. You could easily extend this and pass it off as A-Grade melodic ambient.
Not sure what parts to actually comment on though.
Haha love it.
The elegant, cascading melodies that provoke my thoughts listening to The 14th Album in bed, combined with a very rhythm-focused structure you've never done like quite like this. Also the bass and beats are flawlessly mastered into the overall mix.
My excitement for Lazer Snail has just tripled.
Dang, tripled? That's like, 3 times more or something.
Also, I don't think anyone has ever described anything i've ever done as elegant, OR cascading, so that's pretty rad.
I hope I DON'T LET YA DOWN...
But, as always, thanks for the review!
Lovely tunes, and thanks for the drum hits and FLP! Hopefully I'll make some sort of tribute or inspired piece with a melody I prefer.
You're welcome :)
I'll be looking forward to an interpretation from you :D
