|_JR_| – Watching The Rain Fall

...*sighs* congrats. You managed to grant me the largest headache in this competition. You write a perfectly okay, in fact goddamn pretty ambient tune, and then you kill it with teh metuhl n shredzor... before going back to the pretty ambient. In case you haven't guessed by now, I'm holding a grudge against the heavy part. Whilst the storm itself is pretty cool and disturbing (you could have explored that mood more), you just start outright riffing and then top it off with a wankfest solo. I am very happy you can type such stuff in Guitar Pro, I really am. Why destroy a perfectly beautiful atmosphere (especially in an ambient competition) with it, though? The rest of the piece is really pretty, haunting, back-chilling... addicting even. I can't even decide what to give you star-wise... everything feels like too much and too little at the same time.

I like this one. Great intro. Mood was perfect. Structure was good; it tells a story. The use of "fade-in" was a bit overused. Only thing that spoiled in was the guitars in the break and the solos; didn't fit IMO. Rest of it was great. The Rhodes piano particularly was well used. "Post-verse end of storm" was the best part. Nice pace and atmosphere. Well done.

The tune is probably my personal favorite musically speaking, however the tune is too prog and metal and with too much stuff going on at times to be considered ambient for me. Just look at a shred solo in a supposedly ambient piece?? – it doesn’t work that way, at least not in this universe lol.

Your tune is pretty good, love the riff at 79 (although it’s clearly not ambient to me – a shame).

For bad things, you shouldn’t use the fadeins/fadeout like that all the time. It get’s kind of repetitive by the end. Also the key change part seems to change the mood too much for its own good, especially when it’s such a short detour.

The only real bad thing is the outro part. That sucks, really. It doesn’t fit and is pretty lame.

In any case, your tune is still good – just a shame you didn’t seem to get the ambience right.

I really enjoyed this one. At first I thought “7 min + ambient??!! I’m gonna be sleeping by the time it ends”... But that didn’t happen... Probably because it’s not 100% ambient.

Everything is great until the chorus comes in. There the drums are way to complex to be considered ambient. And then the “Break” part, I did enjoyed to see some metal influence there. From there to bar 110 you could say it’s just a rock/metal song, that’s not good... But the post-verse and the key change are really good, good job. The ending is probably my favorite part of the song. Simple, but nice.

Overall, I know it’s difficult to keep your metal roots aside when working on a song like this, but I have to say you did have an atmosphere throughout the whole song, and you did express the feelings, so that’s points up.
