Hmmm... I seem to be sensing a peculiar pattern of fives scored on your page. Looks like someone's been craving for top-of-the-charts glory and voting their own work, yes?
As for the song, could use a more imaginative title, a bit more emphasis on the faint string-sounding bits at the beginning and a bit more diversity with octaves in the melody. The whole thing sounds dissonant to me, so it's not entirely to my liking. It's not a bad tune, don't get me wrong, but definitely not worth that strange 5...
Thanks for the tips and review.
You are right, the newgrounds system lets the author vote on their own work once. So i often will do the initial vote. The thing is, the way the audio system works, if i give something a 5 it will appear at the top of the list, more people will see it and vote on it, which moves it to it's fair place. If i leave it at 0 then people may never see it to decide what they think. It just seemed to make more sense to get it out there.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback.
I personally thought it was very boring at the start. As it neared the end, it sounded a little better, but I just think the instruments you used were too dull and almost cliche. What program did you use? It just sounds like something whipped up in your average MIDI Composer.
It reminds me of old SNES games like Crono Trigger and FF6. So if that was what you were trying to achieve, then you managed that well.
lol. thanks for the input. it is something i just whipped up with synthetic instruments.
I usually don't like techno as much as other Electronica genres, but this is nice and diverse, albeit short techno piece. (Songs are best kept short though in my opinion)
The beat builds up pretty well, but I think that it shouldn't have remained consistent throughout the entire piece necessarily. Maybe just 4-8 bars of focusing on the electric-sounding melody would've worked pretty well, and then BOOM back into the rythm.
Aside from my nit-picking, I'd say this was a good effort.
I couldn't listen to this song for more than a couple of times without becoming bored, but while it lasts, it's a good work, and very suitably titled.
The thing I really don't like about this is the bass drum beat. It gets repeditive and borders upon being annoying by the end. I think the song overall needs a more diversity. Maybe if you added one part where you just concentrated on the high pitched organ. I could also imagine a couple of piano rifts here and there.
This is identical to a song by Alexander Brandon, featured the PC game: "Deus Ex".
I suggest you don't steal from other people. It really makes you look stupid.
