It really is frustrating to put in so much effort writing a long review and then have the submission be deleted and therefor my review. This has happened three or four times to me thus far. One of the reviews i wrote for a deleted submission i managed to save before it was tossed out. I just feel like it deserves to
be seen. Also i want to be in the Reviewers Club and i really liked my review, so here is my review for a song called "Werewolf" by NormSaxYT
"Did you just immediately remove a song you just posted, something with a Spanish name? because i was in the middle of reviewing it and all of a sudden everything went supper glitchy. It eventually crashed my browser and i lost the review, a long review that i took a long time to write. So now i come back looking for your song and it is nowhere to be found. Instead here this is...i am not a happy camper right now.
So you seem to have a trend going here. Thus far, the two songs i have listened to of yours seem to have a theme about them of relying on professional productions of COPYRIGHTED material as intros and serve as general themes throughout your music. I am not that well versed in what constitutes copyright violations, but this seems mighty close to it because you don't even try to alter, transform, or parody the original material.
I predicted within the first 3 second of listening to you last piece that you use Logic (or garage band) to produce your music. Millions of people who start producing music have often found themselves sheepishly rummaging through the loops bin. I too have done this. I have learned almost everything i know about DAW programs by making dozens of songs purely consisting of Apple Loops. After i realized that producing is what i want to do with my life, i eagerly showed my songs to everyone who i knew had the authority to pass judgment on music to make my songs a valid piece of art. But i was immediately laughed at for using prefabricated loops to act as a veil for my lack of creativity and talent. Those people where right to call me out on that. Its bogus to assume that you would gain credit for a piece that was only half yours. Also, loops sound fake and really cheesy.
About your missing song:
I heard that comically out of place apple loop scratch in the beginning of your vanished piece after the strange marimba choir sample and before the famous quotes of "Blazing Saddles" and expected to hear a bland piece of amateurish rap and mundane hip-hop full of loops i can identify in my sleep (I thought the same thing about your "Werewolf" piece too).
-= And i was genuinely surprised when i really liked and was impressed by the rest of both songs =-
Now this is where i became confused. I was wondering how two songs of solid, interesting, unique beats and catchy, clever melodies of seemingly high production value have such unoriginal, blatantly borrowed intros of significantly lower production value. The contrast between the first 30 seconds and the rest of each song made me severely doubt the authorship of the body of both your songs. If i am wrong and you did make those songs in full (besides the apple loops and the famous movie quotes and songs), I apologize. But if not, i would take your songs down now (which is what i suspected you did with your mysteriously vanished song).
Overall a great set of songs with strong beats that really stuck in my head that i will probably be singing for a while, but shape up your intros and stop using easily recognized samples. 7/10"
