Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice

Good trance tune. You have some very solid kicks and the melody is fun though a bit repetitive. Also, I really like how your sounds wash in and out with the effects you've put before and after a lot of the bars.

Very cool

You have a very original style, and I really like the composition you've put together. It's a pleasant melody. Also, the 911 joke is hysterical. Great concept there.

My only real complaint is that your bigger monstrous effects and synths sound a bit like they're coming from within a microwave. They're massive, and that's great, but they sound pushed back in the piece from being muffled. They're almost fragile sounding too (if that makes sense), like there's a great amount of stress on them. Otherwise, those are some nifty drops.

So yep. Good use of soundbites and composition. Keep on keepin' on.

Hurrah for the Water Bear!

What a majestic animal, capable of surviving most anything through death and reanimation.

I can dig this. Your beat and synths are simple but it works great for the song you've crafted here. I really like all the effects you've thrown together to bring out the piece. Good job.

Getting There

You've got a good rhythm. You might want to spice up your percussion patterns, because right now they're a little stale. Also, your first bass wobble sounds like it's coming through a brick wall to me. Now a lot of other people enjoy that type of bass, so I'm a bit of an outlier, so there's no need to change it because I'm not so appreciative of it.

Other than that, the main issue is the lack of spontaneity and dullness of the piece. You can easily take it to whole new levels with just a few changes, IMHO.

You're making a good first attempt, and I encourage you to keep at it.

Thanks :)

Great

Dude, very nice. I haven't heard an ambient piece this emotionally appealing in a while.

At this point in time, just stay the course. I can't wait to hear a finished product.

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. I enjoy creating ethereal atmospheres that sound emotionally appealing.

I'll definitely be finishing this, don't worry. Hope you enjoy it when it's done. :)

Wait, oh.

Shit, I accidentally put a 5. Sorry, can I fix that?

Oh well, I guess I lost. This is a pretty good song though. Funky as fukn. Pretty simple, but pleasurable because of it.

I don't have too much to say since it's a pretty sure piece. You've put all the elements together rather well. There's kind of a Secret Frequency Crew feel to it (not to crunch your style into someone else's, but it is reminiscent or inspired sounding).

Sure, please review with a 0 score too. XD And yeah, sorry, you lost.
My main inspiration right now is Nine Inch Nails. More tracks are coming soon, so stay tuned ^^
Thank you for your time,

[Lavender Town Dubstep]* [Lavender Town Dubstep]*

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Work

This is a great dubstep rendition of a classic Pokemon song. I hate to tell you this, but since Stephen Walking already made a dubstep remix of this, I can't help but compare this to his in my mind.

However, I am also happy to say that I find this one significantly more impressive, and when Stephen Walking's rendition came out I thought it was the shit.

What you have here is well mastered, well organized, and respects the massive dubstep elements that have made modern dubstep so sweet without the sounds becoming muddled and un-pleasurable. Oh it's quite pleasure, right there, in my ear. That sounds pretty creepy doesn't it? Must be this song.

Like I said. Great work.


Solkrieg responds:

Haha, not creepy at all, thanks for such a nice review. I've never actually heard Stephen Walking's version before. I might as well look it up. Glad you still enjoy mine!

Yes

Yes, you should finish this, and I'm digging what you've already done. It's got a monstrous feel to it. Monstrous in a totally good way (though since most people use the word filthy to mean delicious now days, I guess that probably got itself across)

It would be neat to hear what you have in mind for a finished product. Granted I'm listening to this on bad speakers at the moment, but that aside, this sounds quite complete.

Ha, not that my sense of complete is very good either. Anyway, great stuff, great sounds, great organization and great use of BPM changes.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Work

Great work man. I really like all the effects and tidbits you've thrown into the song. Really brings it up to the next level. Not that the melody and beat work aren't great. They're really impressive. I'm not sure what else to say other than how much I like this. Everything mixes together into a solid piece.

Oh, and that as far as I can tell this fits all the bottom line requirements of dubstep, but derpstep works too. Though I'm sure it's not a big deal to you what you call your song.

Rated 3 / 5 stars

A Good Approach

You have some good instruments lined up, but overall the piece feels too simple.

The start is good and lifts the listener into the song, and then the first ten bars or so are good (nice pumpin' rhythm and zesty lead synth).

But after that's passed, the song seems to be stuck on the same level, almost like it's on repeat. While any sort of dance or techno (or music in general) has some amount of repetition, the feeling here is "same bar" repetition. What I mean is the song doesn't ever take off, or take it to the next level, and never makes a full transition out of its first drum and synth loop into another.

I'm being, of course, very personal here, but to me the song needs to reach a higher level of ingenuity, with more intriguing drum rolls and surprises for one's ears.

I don't feel like I've said what I want to say, but I will add that you have a good foundation and now all you need to do is build on top of it.
