Alive - Todo Winterwolf

You really pulled this off well. Tbh I can't really pick out a real fault in the composition aspect of this song. There's great piano work, understandably. ;)
Vocals are awesome as well. Really hooking.

I love the feel-good attitude of Part A (the verses?). Piano is easily the best in that part. Wish you could've put more solo piano in - I am really interested to see what you, as a keyboardist can do with a solo piano piece... you should consider that in a future song.

For some reason I was reminded of Slash's soloing at the end of this song - it just that style. Bass was constantly vibrant throughout the entire thing.

Well, I loved it.

4.5 stars.

Todo Winterwolf – Alive

There's a certain music school type organization, called YAMAHA. Used to be part of it when I was only starting on guitar, and every half year there'd be this CONCERT, where parents would gather to clap for their tykes as they'd perform. There was the vocal section, and every six months I'd see the same chicks take center stake, grab a mike and sing soft, keys-rich poppy cuts with a specific feel to them. Why the intro? Because your piece felt like one of those songs, minus the lead guitar. It's not a bad thing, brings back happy memories when I sucked on guitar even more than I suck on it now (and that's saying something... hard to believe I used to be worse!), but is far from original. You say no weird chords progressions, no dissonance... notice how you never ever had weird chord progressions in the first place, only very foreseeable and generic ones. If anything, this piece has your best and coolest chord progressions to date. No mood changes... bullshit, my friend. You get a number of slightly jerky jumps in feel before you even get to the verse. And it's like that all over the place, with the uneasy transitions and quick jumps between parts that should have been linked smoother or made more similar (not that they're different, but they're different enough to have such transitions between them feel bad). And as for no dissonance – your soloing has a number of off notes, especially in the triplet sixteents. Enough for critique, now for the positive – the thing was somewhat catchy and cool in this weird, guilty pleasure type of way. I liked the piece, and think it can be better when you polish it a bit.

I liked the feel of this. I felt the piano a bit overpowering though in the intro. There were decent melodies and good progressions throughout. I liked the "solo guitar part". The bridge didn't seem to fit for me though. I also liked Part D Guitar Solo. The Outro was the best bit. A nice song.

Pop-rock at its best :D I don't normally enjoy this style, but you nailed it pretty darn well. This song has a good vibe to it, it feels happy and upbeat, and it's as original as possible within pop-rock, with nice progressions and orchestrations.

Technical-wise, the piano sounds great, very "real" (as one would expect from a keyboard player I guess). I could say the same about most of the other instruments, but I'm not so sure about the lead guitar [it sounds good for the most part, but those 16-triplets, for me they feel rhythmically awkard, mainly because of the relatively slow tempo], but it's probably my fault if I don't like it - as you've said yourself, this is very Slash-styled soloing, and I've never been a big fan of him.

Anyways, it's been a long time since I've actually enjoyed a pop-rock song, so you get credit for that, great job!

The song is ok, but there is something uneasy about the whole thing. I think its trying, for the most of it in a successful way, to be catchy. But at the same time it’s not really catchy – at least its very forgetful, and nothing stands out as something I’d be able to remember. Part A for example has a nice melody, but listening to it over and over, it never seems to connect with me. Still it’s a good attempt at a simple pop-rock song. Your weak side seems to still be guitar/leads, so that’s where I would focus my energy if I was you – structure was pretty efficient as it is.
Ps the ending chord was not that pleasant to me
