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
Basically I can really get lost in this, and I may use this for the AIm contest unless you don't want me to.
Sorry I don't feel like doing a large, in-depth first review.
A quick review now: A bit simple, but that IS a style. Lovely clouds and powerful sci-fi feeling. 4.5 here 4/5 on the side.
I may use this for AIM, but there's a few good ones to choose between before sending PMs out for permissions e.t.c. so we'll see.
thanks breh :)
I don't usually review art, but I'm looking for a piece for AIM (this may be my choice, we'll see) and I stumbled upon this.
Though the colours are a bit bold so I feel like I'm missing something, the vibrancy and detail is just beautiful, and the the landscape is so familiar and perfect.. and yet so alien and lonely.
Overall very good work, this might be for my entry seeing as it got me to think for this long.
Thank you for the kind words!
