i see you don't like black music. I will take your criticism with a grain of salt...or maybe an atom. Thanks but no thanks.
Why make a moronic comment like that? "i see you don't like black music".
Love black music, hate crap music. But hey, you like it dude and that's all that matters.
Why bother asking for criticism if you don't actually want it? Maybe get your mum to review it then eh? Much safer.
It's a shame the OP had to respond in this manner to Sea Lion's critical appraisal. There's a simple way to look at this, in my humble opinion: If you're going to put your music in the public domain and then court people's views and opinions, it's absolutely necessary to accept that others may not like your creation. I've put my music on to websites and it's been called everything from crap to great. If I were to respond defensively to those who have made negative remarks, then I would lose both credibility and worse, my dignity.
To slyly infer some kind of racism on Sea Lion's part is really out of order.
Moving on to your track:
There are parts in it which are really original, and unusual. The chords are dissonant, but edgy, and like other posters, I like the bell riff. However, it is very badly produced. All the elements are fighting for attention, and it ends up sounding very in-cohesive and grating. It's also extremely repetitive and a bit boring. If you analyze a lot of hip hop, on the surface it sounds simple but there is a lot of "ear candy". Unfortunately, points of interest and variety are totally absent on this track. It just sounds like a load of loops carelessly thrown on top of each other, with no consideration given to how each element interacts.
I wouldn't have put a track into the public domain in such an unfinished state. Finally, the $1000 price tag you have put on this track is refreshingly naiive, and I admire your self-confidence.
