One-line summary of my review.
Bark At The Moon is probably one of my favorite songs of all time. Mostly because I love Guitar Hero.
So, anyway. The review.
Originality/Diversity: Originality here isn't applicable, since this is a cover song. As for diversity, I have no idea what to say about that, but I gave you a 4 because it looks better.
Clarity: Not good. I think someone mentioned a tin can here? The output is very scratchy, sort of like you used earbuds instead of a mic (which you really shouldn't be doing if you're trying to record in the first place).
Effort: Whheeee!! So I give you a nice bunch of effort points because I can actually hear that you played good notes. Not many mistakes as far as I can tell; also, I like how you did the whole song (at least I think you did, I wasn't sure whether you had finished or not by the time I hit stop). Normally this is the kind of unplanned offstage scratch-out I hear at coffeehouses at my school, but you did take the time to record it and that shows you must be proud of the work you did.
Overall. Decent cover, not-so-decent sound quality, however I do see potential for improving on this track and that's why you get a nice little 6 instead of a 4 or 5.
thanks.. my mic is a peice, which explains the poor sound quality. i also have no real recording software thats compatable with this computer. but thanks for taking the time to listen and review
Shame there aren't more genres available.
It'd be so much easier for me to listen to stuff like this and be able to review it for its own kind of music. I'm not exactly a metalhead so I probably couldn't tell you the difference between all the different subgenres, but this track sounds a lot like Dragonforce (albeit slower) so I'm going to see it as power metal. Funn.
Originality/Diversity: Both of these categories are kind of the same, and I'm not going waste time embellishing upon them separately. Like I said before, it sounds like Dragonforce to me. A bit too generic for my taste. It's an excellent track no doubt, but doesn't stand out much.
Clarity: Pretty good, but among your audio and others, I've heard better. Not much else to say here.
Effort: Thank god this isn't one of those 2-second solo bit types. I like how you stretched it out to 2+ minutes (didn't pay attention to the time, just an estimate), I'm not a big fan of loops.
Great playing here. I've been listening to some of your other tracks and noticed that you're pretty good at making the beginning sound interesting, and just as importantly keeping that level of interest up for the rest of the song. This is the last sentence of the review where I'm supposed to say something deep and patronizing, but obviously I can't think of one, so you can have this thing.
Wow thanks for the awesome review.
but just what does this have to do with 50 Cent? who I <3, by the way.
It's pretty good, but it doesn't sound much different from most of the other hip-hop beats on the portal.
i guess i felt like i was ripping 50 off the whole time i was writing such a generic song.
you can't rap. at all.
but I totally support your message. you got a really good sense of humor.
because you obviously wrote this down, so you don't know what freestyle means. plus I'm tired of you saying you're the greatest wanksta alive, because you're actually dissing yourself. stop posing and start being yourself, because you don't know shit about gangstas. now I'm going to make a step by step review here so read it and weep.
Originality=6: you called it a freestyle. but you wrote it down which makes it unoriginal.
clarity=7: you actually did good here.
effort=5: because you wrote down a little poem and read it. and your style is crap.
diversity=10: because you're the posingest poser on Newgrounds.
Overall=1: because I just didn't like it. stop tryin to be gangsta, because you're just a little 13 year old who probably lives in Malibu.
I swear I heard this before by Dark_Serpent, just it was faster.
i like it just as much as your other one...it sounds like a sad memories kind of thing :'(
great job!!! it would be great if you could submit a few more!!!
really good job
A great piece...sounds like a movie intro to me (which it has been used for). I really like it!
