3 times listened and still don't know what to write... That it's correct? Only strong impression I can refer to by now.

Since there are no real flaws I'll focus on those I've noticed, cause overall the tune's quite pleasant. I didn't like Vocals transistion between Intro and Verse. Bar 23 is surely the bast part of this tune (magic as for me :), but generally Your piano here is too static - some rhythm variations would really move the piece.

I do appreciate Your try with quartet :) and may I say it turned out even nice. I like the Outro most. Your tune reminds me game soundtracks a bit, ask Yourself if it's good cause for me it is ;)

Interesting key changes throughout this tune, I'll have to congratulate you on that. They're smoothly done, and end up bringing several different atmospheres throughout the song. Excellent use of happy/cheery melodies, with sudden hints of darkness throughout, I really loved that contrast within the song. There's only a couple parts which were sketchy to my ear, Bar 74-75, and the absolute last bar, which I thought would have been better to just let decay than end like that, the drums doing a fast fill seemed too energetic to me for the slow feel of the tune.

Excellent work though, very nice.

This is a good song. Yeah, it's simple and all, but who gives? Let's not forget a lot of good songs only have 2 chords. The chorus is epic like a wolfman. It's retarded how it's only up there once. I'd say the main thing that sucks about this song is the structure. If you could just make it in standard structure, with a smooth solos, and a dude with a deep voice to sing it, it could be a hit. 4.5 for what this song could be.

Well todo I do not have much more to say than the guys did so let's make this short.

- the chord progression in the intro was nice but then became boring even though you made a lot of key changes, you kept the same figures through the whole song and that made it a little boring.
- there was a bass line? seriously i didn't notice it the first time i heard your song, i'm gonna give you a little tip: try to follow the rythm of the bass drum and the snare instead the hi-hat
- Nice try with the String Quartet
- I loved bar 23 and the 12/8 part and the outro was cool, very catchy

As you know I've heard a couple of your songs and you have really good stuff there man, but you have to polish the backing tracks a little more. Cheers!!

It seems it wasn't short at all xD

*quadrouple checks* wowzers, you really grew! o.o this is way better than the entry with the cheesy, 'final countdowny' melody!

of course, there still is some cheese (intro vocals come to mind), but it's better cheese... I like this! it's simple, yet catchy and pleasant!

3.5, man!

This song sounds like Elton John!!! I guess the vocals before the 1st verse would be a wordless improvisation. Overall fantastic and enjoyable song.

First of, this is undoubtly the best chilean song I've ever heard.

But there is two things I don't like about it.

First: It doesn't happen too much.
Second: The strings at bar 74-75 are to load, just a bit, but enough to annoy.

Beside these two points, there is absoultly nothing wrong with the song. I can't even find anything more, no matter how many times I listen.

But the Microsoft GM-thing, it sounded better with my Creative soundfont, but I've tuned it to fit my own style of instrumentation, and I use those instrument alot, so I've found the "ultimate" sound. But that's a sidenote.

Superb work, todo!

4,5

A very good entry from you todo. A coherent piece. Good use of string quartet. Good intensity. Good development. Overall good song.

The very best part of the song was the two bars 74-75. The string quartet was excellent there! Good end solo, not too technical, but does the job. The song was a little too repetitive though, the intro was too long, and I miss seeing the chorus once more – because the chorus was excellent.

The song saw good development, but I still could wish for a better structure. Cut the intro short and incorporate a second chorus, which I think the song would benefit from. I don’t know much else to say - a good offering, nothing bad but nothing too exciting either. The easiest way to improve the song would in my opinion be to rearrange the structure some.

There were some decent leads here but overall I didn't get this song. The intro was far too long and it included vocals before the verse, which I thought was odd and it didn't flow. You could have varied the piano and bass to make the song more interesting. Bridge II was plain and needed something else in there. The best part was the outro and the 12|8 timing... I wished there had been more of that. It's not a bad song, just ordinary, and I can see it took a lot to compose.

Very nice. I think this is the only entry were I actually enjoyed the vocals. No real complaints from me. I thought it all flowed together nicely. I loved the string quartet part.
