Ive been composing this song for a few months now. ALways adding here and there, editing etc. Its pretty much near completion. All the parts are written and im happy with the structure.
What do you think people of UG? Any comments? Good or bad, im open for suggestions.

Dude, that was REALLY good.
The drums are great, all the melodies are great, there is only really one criticism I have. Turn up the volume on the lead guitar, trumpet and bass more.
I'm not sure how this got no replies.
Click 'Music' in my sig.

Cheers : ) Ive just gotta get some actual words. Tempted to go for the story lke plots thats artic monkeys do but im no where near that clever lol.
Or just the random-ness type lyrics of all the indie bands like The View. you heard the song 'Same Jeans'? Its not even that good, yet its all over the radio. The View deffo have better songs. Stil, they do look about 14...

Wow that was very unlike most of the stuff that is posted on UG and that is a good thing. the overall music is what i would expect of a pop rock song kinda like Franz Ferdinan or however you spell it. The composition was really good and it was very well writen.
The only thing i can really tell you is adjust some of the volumes. Bring out the harmonys and the bass.
Overall it was really good and suprised me. As is 9/10 (After ajusting the volume 10/10)

it kind of reminded me of the aquabats waterslides in areally weird way, they both have those end of the album kind of feel to them,
i thought the drums were out of place in a couple places like the ending chorus but other than that i liked it a lot.
just like the guy above me said though the volumes need to be adjusted
but definitely 9.5/10
ten after drums are adjusted (i was thinking just like make it a more consistent like half time kind of stadium-y feeling power beat)
but thats just my opinion
crit mine if so willing
link is in the sig

Made a few changes.
Drums realy isnt my forte so not sure what to do there. I kinda went for the Arctic Monkey's style with drums.
As for the volumes, i adjusted them on the GP5 file but im listening to the midi file now to see how it sounds as this will have to be sent off to the examiner no doubt. Its a shame realy, the gp5 file sounds so much better than the midi : (
But part of a-level music you have to perform a composition of your own (whether it be the composition you're doing as part of the course or not). Im gonna do this, so when its recorded i'll post it up. I warn you though, it'l just be recorded with a crappy lil 'overhead' mic sitting by my teachers desk lol.
