I liked the progressive style of this song, and I think it would make a good rock ballad. It didn't seem like it would fit under the category of hard or heavy very well, and it was a little bit slow, but overall it was a good song. I liked the solos a lot and the chord progressions. I would give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Generis Humani – “1000 Miles of Doubt”

I like... I like a lot. Pretty soft for a heavy comp, but there is some kick in here... tho the focus is on something completely different. You always had a knack for writing really nice and memorable melodies. It really really shines in this piece... you get those fantastic, irresistibly hooking phrases weaved together into a flawless solo, followed by another flawless lead created from equally delightful pieces... every single instrument adds to the experience, even the backing has its moments to shine (some pretty nice bass work, for example). The song flies by unnoticed, and more often than not I return to bar 1 and restart, Before I give you your well deserved rating... lemme just say that the bend in bar 43 was FUCKEN AWSUM!! ^^ and maybe add a touch of vibratto to the squealie in 47? okay, okay, never mind, I shut up, here you go, your stars...

1000 Miles Of Doubt - Generis Humani
Nice prelude and a nice melody in the next section. Decent use of tones in GP5 settings. The use of palm mute gave this song a sort of "Egyptian" feel. The combination of the 2 guitars throughout worked well and complimented each other. Good melodies throughout. There was liberal use of variation - slow, then fast, then some other tempo or feel. However, this song could have been great if there was a better song structure.

Nice Work! The "Prelude" section, with its piano melody

gives the mood of the tune, then comes the "Intro" with the nice solo, (it took me few listenings to

fully appreciate it!). The "Part I" section tells me nothing until the piano comes back in, then gains a

subtle charming power! Another nice little solo leads to the "Intro-Revisited" section, and continues

keeping the mood of the song. "Part II" agains is a little boring, until the piano breaks in conveying

sort of a happy kind of mood into the song, even though this time I didn't like very much the guitar

melody (bars 43-46). I liked the following two sections "Part III & IV" where the songs speeds up a

little (again I didn't like the solo very much), but the last part sounds a little "empty" (can't

express myself at the best) and gives a strange "triumphant" mood, that in my opinion clashes with

the rest of the song. Beside all this, I say again: nice work! 3 out of 5.

What can I say? I'm supose t give a critical respone to a piece of music that I can find few problems with.

My only problems would be the fact that it's quite a slow piece for a heavy/hard comp. Not that this is a problem, just my attention tends to wander after a bit, but the melodies definately keep my attention. I didn't like part IV as much as the other parts. Mostly because I wasn't too fond of the piano riff that played over the top of the gutar.

4.5/5

This is a decent song. A thing in your favor is your melodies, however I seem to notice that whenever you go into the 16ths or 16th triplets in the guitar lead the note choices sound generally awkward – opposed to your note choices when you hold notes longer. For example the lead in the beginning of intro revisited is pretty excellent, nice bends there and good feel, but to me the mood is killed with the 16th note stuff by the end. This is true during the whole lead track. I’d say your song would have come across much better with more long notes with feel, than the 16th note stuff. I hope you know what I mean.

Besides that it’s a pretty good song, although I seemed to miss the direction it was headed at. It repeats parts once in a while but I don’t think it works so well. Also every time you go back to the intro the intensity seems to drop, so in that regard id say there is something to fix there also.

I’m glad to see more of your trademark melodies, but some of the parts in the song don’t work so well so here’s my rate

After listening to this piece a few times, what I sit back with is a little bit mixed. I'll admit that the first time around I didn't really find anything that stood out enough for me to really pay attention. However, a few of the riffs grew on me as I listened to it a cuple of times, like the first half of the intro theme and first half of Part II.

the good:
-melodically driven
-some original twists to chord arrangements

cons:
-lack of ideas in some parts, particularilly for the lead guitar which was really annoying from time to time
-The structure didn't do it for me
-Drums in Part II doesn't fit

Some original ideas which were well done, and some filling which wasn't that good. The intro theme was best from bar 26-29 and 47-50, the "Part II" riff was best from 63->
As a whole I'd say it's a medium piece of work, with good stuff in it which could of been more thoroughly explored, and bad parts that should just be cut out and deleted.

I'd give you 3 stars

Competition score : 65

Use and respect of Musical language : 5/10
Structure : 7/10
Orchestration : 7/10
Use of composition techniques : 12/20
Rhythm : 15/20
Melody : 8/10
Bass line : 9/10
Punch : 7/10

Advices : You seem to have big problems writing offbeats properly (if you’re paying attention to it) don’t let GP do all the thinking for you (an example Track 1 bar 20 beat 2) check some clean scores and some theory to fully understand this subject and write music more clearly. I also tought that part iV was suited for some 12/8 there is to much triplets happening but i liked the feel it gaved to this part. Structure was easy going....second time intro happened it should have been called an interlude, part II could have been a bridge, part III (bridge 2), part II (revisited) <<outro. Some transition were a bit rough but between part III and iV it was really smooth to me. Not much orchestration but good as it is. You used some variations on the solos as composition techniques but not much here either. Rhythm was nice all around...on a personal taste i found eights were too stiff at the end of the prelude. Melody>>Solos were nice and sweet congrats. Bass lines> Some pretty nice to be found and i mean really sweet . Punches not much but some nice at part II

Key signature : Should have been C minor if i got it right ????
Nuances : Some happening between orchestrated parts but not really strong to the listener
Melodic hook : not strong for me but it’s always depending on the majority of listeners....
Originality : Not breaking new grounds
General appreciation : Found it pretty easy to listen to it and i really appreciated the cool bass
Commercial possibilities : Why not with some tweaks and a fuller orchestration
General use of GP software : Not much to say in this case

1000 Miles of Doubt

One of the best songs in this competition. No doubts on that. Loved the piano, loved the chord progressions. The bass lines were great too. Nothing to complain with the guitars. But then, this song is too short to fully develop. Also, I think the part III (intro) contributed to that, cause it really cut the flow. And the part IV doesn’t help too much either. As blackiel said, the structure killed what would have been a great song.
Now I can’t say nothing more really, other than despite the flaws I just mentioned, this one is one of my favorites in the comp (Did I mention the piano is great?)

Final Rating: 4
