hey

just had a few listens, i like the notes you used in the riff and i like the sounds

this is just my opinion and my tastes :P but if it was me, id change the kick to a harder deeper one and at points when the song is like a "chorus" part of the song, maybe bring in some chords similiar sounding to the sound that comes in 4.45 but as a chord notes held with the kick pumping through it. i like the buildup that happens around the 6 minute mark too, maybe snare rolling or white noise (with the kick pumped through it) could enhance that moment abit more building it up before the drop :D

nice though :) i tried to add you as a friend on myspace, turns out im already one haha :D

Link Your Music is the correct forum for posting music threads in :wink:

Nice work though, good use of s/c compression.

Thanks for checking it man. I figured I would post here since nobody goes on that other one. I will try to refrain next time.

good effort, but to be honest it sort of failed to keep my attention for more than a minute. sounds a little too dry and sterile for my tastes.

/constructive criticism

Props for the loud synth part toward the end.

Maybe try loosening up the chunky hi-hat, its sequencing sounds a little stiff. I like the high kick, but maybe tweeze it a bit more so it blends more instead of making you think to yourself "Hey, he chose a high kick drum."
