What an enjoyable song! It's got variety and keeps you going somewhere good. Very well done. The drums are the only "weakness" and yet it's mixed so well that it's a minor issue. Appropriate title too! I'll be checking out your other songs too!
Hey thanks for the review! Yup, I've tweaked the drums and cymbals already. Watch out for the full-length album soon! ^_^
Machine shop rock...8.5
The song has a cool rock groove that is catchy. The guitar sounds good and the synths and other effects are done well. I thought the mix was good too. The only issues would be the drums need to be stronger and the over-use of the drill. I like it, just not every few beats. Maybe add a bridge to change things up for a little more variety. But very cool...
Yeah will definitely cut down on the drill effect in the future, it was just that when we recorded this we spent a good hour or so playing with mic setups to get a good sample that once we did, I naturally thought it should run through out the whole song, and I guess during the editing process I got so used to it I just couldn't imagine the song without it. But yeah others have been saying the drill gets annoying too. So lesson learned don't overdue effects.
As for the bridge, I know what you mean, this wasn't written to be full song it was more like lets play around with our instruments and heavy machinery to get a cool industrial sound. Eventually we will be releasing full songs, I just posted this to criticism on what we had so far.
Anyways thank the review the criticism is appreciated.
For What It Is...7
Add more to it and jam! I like the humor.
The sound quality is good and mixed well. Catchy.
The song jumps right in and seems to not have an intro, but it works. This tune is ambient and yet keeps you into it with the odd timing of the drums. It provides a good balance to the guitar structure. I was relaxed without being hypnotized by a constant beat. The ending could've been a little cleaner, but a minor issue overall. Good meditation or stretching music.
Thank you for the comment, in my own words, I usually label short songs "hit and runs" because your presented with the structure of the song without any introduction and then the song suddenly comes to an abrupt end. You kinda wish such songs would continue.

There's so much going on and it's all cool sounding. The rap, vocals, background sounds that vary, the flow of the song are all very well done.

Sounds like a song that could be on a professional CD. My only dislike I didn't reflect in the score because I know I'm a little on the conservative side and I don't apologize for it. But, I'm not sure the lyrics would be my cup of tea. That's me. Others might not care at all.

Very enjoyable song that I could see people listening to over and over.

I like the melody and string arrangement

Too short! That's a good problem! I like the sound of the instruments particularly the opeing sound for the melody. The soft drum adding in sounded good.

I would listen again on purpose. It was cool to leave the song on while I writing the review.
I'm glad you've enjoyed the song! Thanks for the great review! =)!!

Whatever you're using to record with sounds good
Unique sounds & hooks 6
The intro area was cool and makes you listen further which is good. The loops sounded good, but I was waiting for that "something" to grab me. I liked the drum section at around :36 in the song.
Ups & Downs 6
The instrumentation sounds good. The "pauses" sometimes bothered me. Changes are good, but I wouldn't pause too long.
Listen Again 5
Again, I wanted to hear something that was so unique I would listen again. While I writing the review I was listening over and over. I kept listen and that's good because bad songs make you want to turn the sound down during reviews!
Keep on recording it'll just keep getting better!
Hey, thanks! I'm not sure what you mean about record with though...

The sound of this recording is very good. I particularly like the loops in the beginning of the song. The second part (or harder hitting area) sounded good, but like alot of other songs. On the upside I liked the choice of instrumentation. I can hear this song in the background of games and videos easily. As I was writing the review I didn't mind hearing the song over and over. But, would I purposely listen again was a maybe. Nothing was bad but I needed something else to hook me. It's got potential and maybe needs to be lengthened. That's where the hook could come in and leave people wanting more.
Thanks for the big review. It helps me a lot when I get such a specific review and makes me wanna do better
Crazy without the frog!
I like the "detuned" sound and the techno airy beat. Could easily hear this in a game that needs cool yet creative background music. If the transition in the middle had been smoother I would've given it a higher score. Cool!
