It's music and expression. I get that. I once came really hard with some Metal Vocals just because I had something to prove at a song comp. Make a joke out of the contest if that was your intent but own it. Everyone needs a platform. I don't subscribe to that here and I just preferred not to comment rather than give you a horrible review. I did say I was sorry. That could have turned out equally bad and had you ranting. I'd rather spend my effort trying to help a song and artist complete or improve their song. I personally am working on this months song with a few better musicians and trying to complete it. You did your song as a joke mostly. How I perceived it. What's the problem? For a certain niche...it could work. There's other people in here that could actually benefit from the feedback. You just need to quit playing and write some music.

I usually go above and beyond the norm on here for reviews...so cut me a little slack. I went light on this month for a reason, because I didn't want to come across as to much opinion. Some really good work and I see people improving every month. Just trying to fit in.

See you next month. You don't quit. I can feel it. Fighter.

Here is a link to the collab that developed because of this song competition and theme. It's still a cluster fu.. but it isn't just dead at the end of the month.

Edit: https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaborat ... ile/865847

That should work for all subsequent updates as I make them.

What I want to know is when is the Donkey album going to be ready to buy? This guy just keeps ripping off hit after hit. I've heard him before this site and he was that good if not better over at the other station. I want the block set. Paypal.

I get where you're coming from. And I guess that not knowing me from Adam, you can't possibly know where I come from and what I expect from people. I expect everybody, good or bad, to be treated equally. I would have rather you tore me a new one. Believe me, I was hoping it was dead obvious that I was taking the piss with this month's contest. I mean could I have been anymore obvious? I thought the "requirements" were ridiculous. So I did a ridiculous song. I did feel at least that I did the ridiculous song well for what it was. So in the future, if you think something I do sucks, provided you give everybody else constructive feedback. I'd appreciate the same. That's all. No more, no less. Just the same.

Let's just put this all behind us now.

I'm good with you Wags. Time for some Donkey listen.

Edit: The Day of the Donkey. Priceless!

I really like that bandcamp playlist layout. I need to do this. Nice and organized.

@Mister Natural

Thank you for your review. Dashed off? It was done in about an hour. LOL. Now you gotta admit, for an hour's work it wasn't half bad. LOL.

Thanks :)

Hey, question. Has anybody ever come in dead last from every single voter?

That would be quite an accomplishment.

Hellfog

Music - 7.5
Instruments - 8.5
Performance - 8
Mix - 8

Overall - 8

Comments: Interesting intro. Curious as to where this is going. Low end could use a touch of EQ in places. Just a little muddy. Not much. Is that a piano or some other keyboard instrument? Sounds synthetic but nice. Kick drum is barely audible. Piece seemed to end before it should have. Didn't feel finished.

!

Everything is Omnisphere. The drums at the end has the correct volume for the song,

"There's some timing issues": are there?,
No french horns in there.

Very original & absolutely could be the intro music for a Cirque du Soliel show. If you haven't seen them live; do that and do that now. So magical
Thank you so much, never seen a Cirque du Soleil show

>>Mr. Natural "as I swim" : must confess, the backstory of Mrs. Natural injects a narrative that pulls at the heart strings (so I do hope she is doing better.) The composition itself seems a bit more montaged than structured, still a lot of promising moments clearly fueled by nostalgia.

good comments - and that in no way had I wanted to inject pity into contest/voting bias(es)

"montage-d" as a result of me "dashing" this one off in one day = fair critique
just wanted to get it out there and wonder if my monitoring is off this mix... I think one of my best yet 2behonest, love it

"Mike777 "the cave" : dramatic, moody piano piece. Find the strings somewhat distracting as the piano performance is so evocative on its own. But a beautiful composition. "

Thanks for review! I didn't like the strings too much first time either, so I improved them and it's been updated. Moderator allowed it

Tempted to get a little bitter at a few who consistently seem to put me at the bottom of the heap for whatever reason. Kinda messes up the final numbers. Fuel for the next comp when I hope to produce something amazing so that you look obviously bias. The goal. I don't like mysterious trends. How do you go back and check the votes from the previous months? Just curious.

I honestly don't know what you're complaining about. You finished in the middle of the pack. Some people just aren't going to like your music. The month I finished 3rd, some still voted me towards the bottom. It's going to happen.

At least you didn't finish dead last.
