The Only Thing I Know The Only Thing I Know

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really enjoyed this

But it's going to be hard to get off of the addiction. I'm not a super hardcore gamer, but i do sometimes spend too many hours on the computer, and i was wondering, how did you stop your addiction?

Great animation, some great humor, perfect explanation and debate. 10/10, 5/5

Thanks for the great insight. i always had an idea of what video games could do to one, and what one could be doing while playing them, but putting it into terms like this really helped me. thanks a lot!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

interesting (sure you havn't heard that before)

I really liked it! I didn't pick up on any symbolism (was there any?), and the tone of the movie was just...idk, it wasn't boring like one would expect it to be. it's enthralling. reminds me of hodos, and that's a good thing. As for the sounds... You could probably just ask some of the users here on newgrounds, they could help you out more than i could, though GarageBand has some good effects. Great job!

whether it has any sumbolism or not is up to you, although you might want check some of the other reviews, they have some interesting interpretations on the flash and it's meaning


The Pigpen The Pigpen

cool animation

i didn't get much out of it...But there was some definite style and originality added to it. I guess it could be taken in a lot of ways? Good job :)

(AD) Carol Of The Bells (AD) Carol Of The Bells

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Couldn't dream of making something like this!

This is a great song! However:
1. I feel like the bass drop-out at the beginning comes in a little too soon and maybe this is just because this is more of a halftime feel song, but it seems like it would be more fitting for a single bridge
2. The Bass drum crescendos at the beginning, but the rest of the music doesn't really crescendo with it. try equalizing that a bit more
3. Generally, it seems that the bass is extremely overwhelming over everything else ( and i guess that's why it's called Drum n Bass ;)) But I figure making the melodies stronger would be helpful to make the song more identifiable
4. use of the choir towards the end would help to conclude the song more. just using it at the beginning kind of leaves you feeling empty
I hope you enjoyed my review! Good luck in the contest!

PrTr: 05 Only One Will Ri PrTr: 05 Only One Will Ri

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty cool, could blend a bit more though

piano should be stronger at beginning/end, although the bass from the piano sounds awesome

got a lot of buzz from the dist. guitar?

Idk, it just feels like different parts of the song are accented, at least, different than i would. I think that the beginning was a little too quiet, and the buildup was great and all, but it just wasn't intense without accented parts. I think the toms could be accented some more, as if they were clues before the storm

some chords from the horns at the beginning might sound cool, especially as it progresses

mebe some cymbals when the guitar comes in?

overall, it was an awesome song, but if it were mine, i would just change some of the balance and blend a little more.

CHECK OUT SOME OF MY NEW STUFF PLEASE!!!
4/5 8/10 ;)



&amp;lt;A&amp;gt; Never Forever <A> Never Forever

Rated 4 / 5 stars

fantastic!!

I have a feeling you use FL9? lol, lemme think of some things that might help with the song.

-the "de layering" starting at 2:48ish lasts too long! instead of making that part, i suggest making a bridge that incorporate modified versions of the melody. That way it won't be as repetitive at the end when it fades out

-cymbal crash at the end is sort of random, might wanna crescendo up to that rather than fade down into it

-at 1:16 when you fade down the backwards sound effect, try to fade it down later when the synth starts to come it, then it won't be near as noticeable, and will flow much more

otherwise, it's an incredible song. I had to think a little before i could find some stuff that could be changed. mind reviewing a song or two of mine? I'm into mutual reviewing

WOW! THATS QUITE THE REVIEW!

"at 1:16 when you fade down the backwards sound effect, try to fade it down later when the synth starts to come it, then it won't be near as noticeable, and will flow much more", well i did want it to be noticeable so that there be a bit of a break and it would be quiet enough for the melody to philter in.

Thanks for all that advice ill be sure to try all of it. and yes i did use FL9 :3
