I liked the "Happy New Year" a lot, though it sounds like it wants to go some where. I liked what you had there though.

I didn't like the "Blue Skies" as much. I think the drums kind of broke it up and made it sound choppy. I liked the driving beat and fills of the "Happy New Year" and less the weird beat of the "Blue Skies."

Nice work on both of them, though. Care to crit my latest? Link is in my sig

Happy new year
I really like this song, when I hear it, it seems to flow nice.

The bass and drums are really loud. That would be ok normally. But, because of the theme of the song, I would tone them down or even just change the mix volume. The piano part is really nice in most of it but is hard to hear over everything.

Maybe try some volume changes in each part. Then you can have the bass shine through when it come in, but then get quieter so it won’t overpower.

Some crescendos and descends would be nice on the guitar part.

Blue Skies
Dont like this one much, Odd beat...

Happy New Year: really nice flow thru the song. But I felt like it had more potential than was in the song.

Blue Skies: Dunno why but it sounded slightly like Blink-182 (not in an insulting way though). But the drums were tight around some parts

Summary: Good job for both songs (better than I can do)

Crit my song?
