    Very creative Jeremiah it is something we havent seen here before for that thumbs up but it is indeed kinda loopy maybe keep that in mind when you make your next track for the rest your sound is great so keep up the good work

    Fair call having a crack at the tunes and accompanying visuals, takes a lot of effort to get both sides working together and most of us just struggle with getting the tunes part right.

     

    Honestly, I'm in the same camp as the last two reviewers, both tunes are too repetitive and don't feel like they have any form of structure. I know it's experimental but didn't feel like there was a start/finish/middle or breakdowns, build ups etc.

     

    First track, the guitar riff, maybe think about changing some of amp settings, even subtly or introduce effects into the signal chain so that even if the riff stays the same in terms of notes, there's variation of the sound. Same for the beats, it all stays the same hits at what sounds to be the same velocity across the track, however there does seem to be two main sections of beats. Maybe have a part of the track that is just a hat tapping out a rhythm. The part I really like and would have liked brough to the front was that piano, sounds like you're pushing the boundaries there but it's getting put to the back by the beats which are dominating a bit much.

     

    Second track the saw (bass) panned out to the right feels like it is dominating a bit much at the expense of the melody. As a saw form it's cutting right across everything, might need to eq or reduce its levels a bit.  The beats at the 7min mark sound great and interesting but they're a bit low in the mix. Some of the vocal chops are great but like Therm Optic said, it just gets lost too much repetition of the other parts.

     

    Best advice I can give is to have a really critical listen to the tracks and cut anything unnecessary. Some good stuff in there but the repetition of other parts turns the listener off, sometimes before they get a chance to get to the good stuff.

      Heeded and done @Matt Bulger...I appreciate all you have said. Valid points. I say this to you and all the others who have reviewed this...you actually listened and dropped science. Thanks!
