AlxEllis - Everybody Dance AlxEllis - Everybody Dance

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

You seem to understant Electronica, yet . . .

this piece seems to be rather lacking in the basics of the genre you're submitting it as, for example; instead of jumping straight to a different tune at 00:12 you could have just layered in a bassline and repeated the intro once more, and believe me the most basic part of dance/electronic music is in fact the bassline.
You also jumped from tune to tune quite noticeably (which served to jolt me awake quite nicely, thank you), which makes it feel rather unrefined (i honestly believed that my internet had glitched at the first jump).
But still, you have a great mind for basic melodies to say the leased, and some of your previous songs are also very good, but with this one in particular i felt that it could have done with another couple of hours of editing to "iron out the creases".
Still, i reckon that with a bit more fiddling around this could morph into something special.

Melody: 7/10
Flow: 5/10
Basics: 5/10
Intro: 8/10
Overall: 6.5/10 (give it 7 because i'm too tired to round it down)

Bloody Brilliant Mate.

I'm glad that you decided to continue on with something from your latest demo mix, and I'm sure that all your fans are too.
This song proves something for you too, it proves that even with your so called "writer's block" you CAN continue on with songs even if you say that there is no-where to go with it, I mean, how many people can you count that actually care whether you put in something that you've only spent a couple of minutes thinking out?
Whether you submit a gigantic lump of gold or just a heap of dog sh*t, no one on this site really cares, because it's YOU that is submitting it, remember that.
I also have to say that you made the video-game tribute quite well, with little room for improvement. (Just how much more can be done with 8-16 bit console sounds than you've already put in?)
In fact, I don't think you could have made this song any better than it already is without starting from scratch, so anyone that wants to pick at this song, go right ahead, but think about what YOU could improve before striking down the song over a small detail that doesn't agree with you.
Sad to hear about your planned break, but with any luck you might just think up something that has a beginning AND an end, instead of starting a song and then leaving it untouched because you ran out of ideas. (spending time on a piece without any real place to go from the middle sucks b*lls, right?)

Oh, and to the little sh*ts that keep rating all the reviews reviews on pages useless, I have 6 words for you, "F*ck-Off,-You-Have-No-Friends".

Brilliant song once again, and all the no-life electronica freaks like me are DEFINITELY looking forward to your next song after your break, (Hopefully "Set Me Free" after the long wait)
And I'm not going to stop bugging you about this, PLEASE continue with "Swing Sessions", it has HEAPS of potential to go in all different directions, you just need to put your mind to it.
Keep up the work, mate, people are worshiping you all over NG.

Come On Man!

You have to be one of the best (if not the best) electronica artists on newgrounds, and some people are on this site almost every day checking what you are going to uplode next, i mean, you're a bloody legend among no-lifers.
Even if you put in a corny ending to some of your songs, no one will really care what you do to your songs, as long as they're finished.
It was like your song, Swing Session, that was BRILLIANT, but you ended it RIGHT where the good part was starting, and that was a REALLY big bugger for everybody.
If you have a bad writer's block, why not listen to some of your old songs, just for inspiration. (if you're REALLY desperate then why not someone else's).

Anyways, it would be great if you could experiment a bit, just to see what works for a song, instead of leaving one unfinished that could be absolutely mind blowing if you just spent a little bit of time on it.
If you want some tips on what to continue, Swing Sessions is always a good start, (that has the potential to surpass Heaven 2, I tell you) or from the demos, Rock Shock and Dominate is a good one to continue with, not to mention Generic Techno and Chaos Fantasy, and if you have time why not try making a Hardstyle song, just for something different.

You're a bloody legend mate, remember that.
But the one rule about greatness is that you have to WORK AT IT, not give up at the first mental block you encounter, spend some time working instead of playing around and see where that gets you.
Oh, and one last thing, where is that vocal song you promised newgrounds? Anywhere near?
We're w-a-i-t-i-n-g..............

Envy responds:

Lol the vocal song will be tough because my girlfriend is at college. Wont be back for 2 months so... thats the absolute earliest it can be out. I donno though.

Anyways, this isn't my first writers block. I had a big writers block before heaven 2 then came back with it. Who knows, maybe I'll come up with something just as big this time around 8D.

I should have some new songs on here relatively soon because my writers block is slowly breaking 8D

coming from a bloody critic, this song has to be at leased one of the best on newgrounds.
I'd love to see if you can make another one better than this, but I think you've reached the to of your game.

Great job and keep it up. (you should look to make money from stuff like this, like selling your songs to some random anime company for their openings and sh*t)
