Electronica's first album :) I hope you guys enjoy. I spent a lot of time on it. Some of the files might have the wrong album title, because I forgot to change them all. By the turn of 2010 we should have real recordings done. I hope you guys enjoy :D Crit4Crit, I suppose I will crit 11 of your songs.

01 Introduction
02 You Had Me At Hello
03 Hopefully
04 Bleeding for You
05 The Eye of the Storm
06 Forever & Never
07 Don't Be Alarmed
08 For You
09 But That Would Just Make Sense
10 Lights Out Scream
11 The End

B-sides will come in the future, depending on if everyone likes what has been done with album :)

We meet again :)

-introWhen you actually record this i think you should put some random ambient noises behind the intro. Make it a bit more intresting O_o

-You had me at HelloDo i smell a talking tomato? :P**** i see you switched the chiff lead out for bass + lead. i think i like chiff lead better though.. made it a bit more edgy.

-Hopefully*** return of the cats meow :P** OH noes! you shortened the intro!!* I liked that part..* *** honestly, i think your first version was better O.o''

-Bleeding For you*** Yar here be whales...Pink...Whales...** (Yes i remember all your songs lol.)*** NO!! the epic bird intro is gone D:!! BRING IT BACK. NOW D:!!** Did you shorten the area leading up to the bass duel? i think you need more buildup -it comes up too quickly.** Also i like the solos a bit more. they're not as edgy as the first ones (if i recall) but they seem to fit a bit better. (and maybe speed up the solo section)** I still think you should go back to using chiff lead instead of bass + lead. it sounds cooler :)** Good improvement on the original song.

-Eye of the Storm*** eh...bullet for my valentine song?*** hey a song i haven't seen yet.*** okay this is a song where bass + lead sounds good :P nice intro.*** hmm. all your rhythms that are just straight quarter notes should be refocused. switch up the rhythm here and there. some flashy fills you know?*** same with the chorus quarter notes. try a different rhythm.*** YAY BREAKDOWN* *giddy*** this song seems a bit ..eh.. less creative than your other ones. it's still good, just probably not one of the stronger songs on the album (so far)

-Forever and Never ** *COUGH* bullet for my valentine?!** You know old videogame music? this reminds me of it. in a good way. ** maybe expand on the intro a bit?** You know? you should try experimenting with synth strings too. they'd fit well in some of your songs. just background chords or something O_o..** i like verse 2 :D** hmm...i think this song needs a solo. :D
Okay i'm not gonna get to these all today, got a party to go to, but i'll look the rest over soon :)



hmm.. would you like to look at my techno song? :D

Dude, i listened to you had me at hello, it's so much you could do with the bass guitar man! don't let it go to waste playing f-ing root notes. But the music was pretty cool man!

I wish you guys would give the other songs a chance as far as I know all you guys have critiqued is the very first song on the album. There are 11, of which 9 are lengthy and important, and I spent a lot of time on. I would appreciate if you guys put some time into a crit please for more than the first song. =]

Thanks.

In my opinion you should have posted them as you made them, and earned critic on them.
Rather than posting an entire album at once, which is very daunting :P

I did listen to them all a few days ago, but i've forgotten everything :/ D/W i liked them, although from what ir emember it kept crashing my GP at certain points.
