    I have continued with part two of this work. No Avenger has mastered Part 1, but I'd like feedback on Part 2.

    This sounds big. Wonderful.
    Reminds me of classic Rush/Yes/Saga songs that had a distinctive voice on top, singing lyrics that spark your imagination.

    Edit: Just found your track "Shine Shine Deliverance".
    What a coincidence! Who's the vocalist?

    Thank you. There's a few songs on Soundcloud with Jon Anderson from Yes.

    it sounds very very nice. Can't judge the mix right now since I'm not properly monitoring but the composition sounds very nice.

    But yea I do think it requires some vocals. The melodies and sounds don't have a progressive nature for them to stand on their own, which isn't a bad thing at all, it's just that it's not meant to be an instrumental. Vocals would do it well...

    Basically what's happening in your track is that as you break and build, it's as if it's trying to make room for something else (most likely a vocal). That's why you may feel it is still missing something despite variation...

    But great job brother :)

    Wow. I thought you were super-lucky to find a singer who sounds like Jon Anderson but this is unbelievable!
    If you're still in touch, let him sing! :wink:

    Yeah, I got shivers when I heard those tracks! His voice is so iconic and individual. It's a great collab between SL/Notsol Oud & Jon.
    Did you hear 'Water'?

    He prefers simpler songs, so he can do it solo with a guitar. Doesn't like others doing rock. I did Love And Understanding on this album.

    https://www.amazon.com/Survival-Other-Stories-Jon-Anderson/dp/B004XIQHWU

    Indulge me as I paste this reviewers comment: There is a wealth of great melodies on this album. Love and Understanding, for example, is as uplifting and melodically exuberant as anything Jon Anderson has ever done.

    Nice song. Thanks for sharing another one of your songs with all of us. My friend, there shouldn't be any buts. You are happy with this track and arrangement. That feeling of accomplishment is not easy to achieve for creative souls. Leave it as is, and move on to next track. :like:

    Good advice. At my age I could grind to a halt at any minute.

    It's amatuer mistakes throughout
    Such as things repeat for no reason ,
    Changes happening randomly but not expressing any deep feelings in you.
    The drums don't make sense nobody body rhythm sync like that.
    The little bit of harmony is nursery rhythm TRIADS in the most corny way.
    The transitions make no sense .
    Here is what happened you just took clips
    And peiced them together in random ways .
    You have self indulgence changes constantly that don't do anything.
    The sound is clear but sterile no charactor.
    The ambient sounds ate pry nothing is happening.
    Every single song is boring .
    Nothing is happening.
    The things that do change do so , so randomly
    It becomes pointless.
    The worst thing there is no life to the songs .
    It's dead pointless self indulgent dribble unlistenable accept to yourself ( if that)
    Congrats you have figured out how to splice sound clips randomly move them around. Hit red button green button.
    What you have accomplished is audio .
    Sounds which follow sounds
    You have nothing inside you apparently to express.

    I've only heard music made like that by students the first hour of the first day they download a daw

    I dare you to have the courage to ask everyone you know who has heard your music , to force them to tell you the truth about it.
    Ask them the specific things I'm telling about it .
    Ask them if it is that .and have the courage to force them to tell you the truth about what they think . No lies to be polite or nice.

    I am unconcerned by the comments of individuals. Not everybody likes me or my music, but that's no reason to stop. I write music. I enjoy it and it has brought me success.
