A song which, when I started to make it, started as an easy going reagge-ish song. But I just couldn't help myself, and it became yet another rock-song :-)

US2K Review: This mix begins with a lead guitar introduction solo, four seconds into the mix after a very short silence, a rock drum pattern including hi hat, bass drum and snare playing accent, along with a rhythm guitar enter the arrangement. After these are introduced the lead plays a catchier riff. This theme continues until seventeen seconds into the song at which point some guitar feedback leads nicely to the removal of the drums, a rhythm guitar playing low down the scale to act as a bass to a strong verse vocal section, there is a short guitar solo bridge, and a backwards record scratch that changes this rock section into a hybrid pop song, introduces the second part of the verse and the return of the bass drum and snare, with additional finger snap percussion left of the stereo field, and either a bass guitar, tom or deep ethnic drum of some type in the center.

The verse continues with the last words, guitar and another backward record scratch skillfully introducing a catchy chorus, with a new panning synth melody backing that really adds interest to the song, and empasises the separation between the verse and chorus. Shortly after the first chorus, about one minute twelve seconds into the section there is a fairly catchy instrumental guitar bridge for about 8 bars which I think is intended to add variation and an extension of the chorus (I will refer to later as bridge concept 1).

After this bridge a backwards record scratch sound introduces the next vocal verse section with a musical arrangement including rhythm guitar, and the full drum arrangement from earlier, then a chorus introduced by backwards record scratch, this time without the click of the finger percussion, and another repeat of bridge concept 1 but with a more grungy rhythm guitar "chugging" accompaniment. This time it continues longer too although the listener is intentionally tricked with a false ending created by the backwards record scratch, instead it introduces a change in the snare to play a more complex free-style live sounding pattern, probably intended to be a middle 8 section.

This takes the song to the two minute forty three second position in the song at which point a high hat or ride is used to introduce another change, the beginning of the conclusion, which is the rhythm guitar played at a low octave to act as bass once again soloing, before the verse vocal joins it with an occasional tambourine ride/hat to accent every four bars. This theme forms a suitable coda to the song before the chorus section is introduced one final time, but this time with some additional heavy guitar at first that does not seem to fit the song so well (perhaps the band are getting carried away) but this gives way to a variation of the guitar from bridge concept one right of the stereo field towards the end of the song. The finish begins at the three minute thirty two seconds position, using the chorus section' s "Forever I will love you" with the "love" intentionally substituted for two rhythm guitar chord chugs, and two final chugs and tambourine plus ride/hi-hat to end cleanly.

My evaluation of this song is that it has an intelligent verse, chorus, bridge, middle 8, conclusion structure and that is it well produced. The melody lines and drum patterns are catchy, there are strong vocals and there is some well chosen subtle variations. The mixing down and mastering is suitable for a live rock music/pop sound. Some things I would suggest to improve the song would be a crash or drum roll earlier on instead of the reliance on the reverse record scratch, also the first use of the guitar section as the second part of the chorus may have been too soon, because I think the chorus vocal idea could have been taken further and that some of the instrumental sections would then have been unnecessary. My final score for this very competent rock song is 8 out of 10. I strongly suggest anyone who likes rock music have a listen.

I wrote this. It's awfully Serious and Important - it sounds that way, anyhow. It's got a fairly massive symphonic sound. I listened to the other submissions and came up with something so different from theirs that, I'm proud to say, there's no way it'll win!

Three and a half minutes long. I creating the beast with Finale PrintMusic music software and edited it with Audacity. It's all original and as grim a piece of music you're likely to gear any time soon.

Again, thanks and congratulations on putting together a competition that's got stuff flying in from all over the globe.

US2K Review: This is a very interesting classical music piece. I do not think it requires review as it had a thorough feedback during the competition. The final score from me is 9 ot of 10.

More Rock! This is punk a similar type of music to that referenced at the following excellent reggae/ska music and dance resource

US2K Review: This mix begins immediately with some very skillful human drumming, a crash cymbal every four beats, and some quieter guitar feedback transforming very quickly into a powerful punk guitar riff (riff/hook 1). I am not certain but there may two guitars, a bass guitar accompanying a lead, or a single electric guitar with bass harmonics. At the ten second position there is a short break introduced by a tom roll before a short slower drum solo.

Twelve seconds into the mix the guitar(s) return repeating the punk riff but with interesting variations and some sort of chord progression. Things to particularly note are the fills on the bass and drum matching each other at the 49 second position and sub sequentially afterwards. There is a precision snare roll at the 50 seconds position too to maintain interest and freshen the mix and a later one at the one minute twenty seconds mix position introducing a bridge/middle eight section.

This bridge begins with a drop of all the drums and then an alternative guitar pattern consisting of a temporary grungy sounding rhythmic "chugging" sound before the snare and ride from earlier announce the return of riff/hook 1. This time after only 5 seconds there is another short break announced by a skillful tom drum roll. The break is formed from a slow snare pattern that prepares the listener to one final blast of the main guitar riff/hook. The conclusion of this composition begins there after at the two minutes nine seconds play position. This conclusion starts with a coda consisting of a more intricate guitar lead section accompanied by a slower bass and rhythm guitar than the earlier parts of the mix. The drum section accompanying this musical section has a slower but more intelligent snare pattern too.

This coda plays for about 8 bars before one last final blast of a repeating section based on the punk rock concept, ending finally on a very skillful live snare and tom roll, with a "clean" but instant stop after two minute forty seven seconds. I really like this mix,

My evaluation of this rock/punk instrumental is that it has a very sophisticated structure, and that it is very well produced. I cannot be certain whether any studio effects have been applied because all reverb could have been natural from an acoustic environment, but there is intelligent instrument positioning, there is certainly evidence of highly skillful guitar playing and live drumming with some very catchy exciting moments, I love to hear real instruments once in a while. The use of variation is sufficient but in my opinion, they are less regular than I would have expected due to the fact vocals were intended to be included. To conclude is this is an excellent rock song, only let down by the absence of vocals and my final score is 9 out of 10. It is wll worth a listen to live rock music lovers.

This is my first rock production, I had done it for a while but now I've discovered rock on your side dare I heard (lol)

US2K Review: The mix begins immediately with some nice vocals accompanied with some strings, and a rock guitar bass line, and a ride or a hi hat in the background, left of the stereo field. Very shortly after there is some "full kit" ( bass drum, snare, etc) live drumming. Shortly afterwards there is a lovely instrumental section including some powerful strings, and occasional saxophone playing a rhythm right of the stereo position. At the 32 seconds position a vocal verse section is introduced and then a lovely instrumental bridge (only slightly spoilt by a mechanical clap sound which is way too “in your face” for the emotional intent of this song). The lovely instrumental section leads to a drop of the drum pattern and a quality chorus piano and vocal section, followed by some gorgeous guitar "power" lead lines. Then the drum pattern leaves the mix again for a layered bridge middle 8 section by on bass line strings, and the guitar playing a similar rhythm accent to the saxophone did earlier. An additional string or pad sound builds to a rock instrumental section with full live drumming to drive it affectively. At the 3 minute 13 second position the chorus vocal returns with the piano and saxophone and that less than ideal clap. That section is still lovely before my favourite guitar and strings section returns at the 4-minute mark. This continues until the conclusion at the 4 minute 31 section introduced by a by a human drum roll. The conclusion is a duet between guitar and piano playing a beautiful melody, which fades out in an emotionally reflective kind of way, to the five minute 31 play position.

My evaluation of this rock production which definitely is definitely influenced by 80s pop music is that it has a very intelligent verse chorus, bridge, verse chorus structure. Also the live singing, musical arrangements, and lead melodies are super especially that guitar part. The use of snare rolls and other fills is expert too and general production is faultless with one exception, that mechanical clap needs replacing with a more human sounding snare pattern that does not fight the vocals, although if the clap is treated with reverb to give it a little room presence that may remove the mechanical feel from it. If that hard clap had not been used the score would have been 10 out of 10, instead it is score is 9.5 out of 10. I suggest anyone who enjoys rock music has a listen to this regardless as it is an excellent rock/pop song.

Speed In My Veins (Alternative Diary) The One (Generation Of Peace)


Bass Mom & Dj CrusadeReview: This is my first time reviewing for this artist and I like the catchy guitar and vocals in the intro of this track and for it being a rock track I am liking the vocals as they are spot on and add a nice variation to the overall mix, there is much variation to this overall mix and the use of the drum n bass in this track are outstanding, the outro does a drop all at once and leaves the listener wanting more!!! I give this track a 9 for overall production and quality and vocals!
