Ok, so I've been trying to get feedback on the attached song (It Takes) in the review system but it takes so long (and yes I've done reviews) so I figured I'd try posting it here.

I appreciate any assistance on what direction I might take the song, or if it works as is.

Ok thanks. The last time I was in a band the Garageband website was big, and that's where I got my music reviewed. That system was really fast, and the more reviews you did the more reviews you got. So I guess I'm just used to faster reviews.

Not that I don't appreciate audiopolis, and the review I have is very informative. I'll do a couple more reviews sometime soon.

I'm gonna save my comments for the wonderful Audiopolis review system.

No, really. I actually do reviews. :mrgreen:

Ok, I'll review your song here Icuddy12 here because I don't do all the checkmark boxes and "do you like song 1 a little vs song 2 " stuff over on the official review forum (and I probably couldn't find it over there even if I looked) ..

Very nice and original song melody and vocals (and I don't say that easily because I'm a hard-rock fan) but I listened to it all the way through (which is unusual for me) and really liked it. The drum track could be crisper in the beginning to add interest then brought down (I do like the restraint on the drums during the main progression of the song). The "bass" needs a little depth, but not too much to make it muddy. The extra reverb in the bridge vocals is unexpected, but could do with a more unexpected effect (e.g. like flange) if slight shock is the desired effect. All in all an enjoyable listen!

Thanks xxyx. Appreciate the feedback. I definitely want to redo the drum track and try to think of a more original bass. We don't have a drummer right now so we're using a drum machine and Fruity Loops. One question if you happen to come back to this. Do you think the song could use another part? Could there be a chorus after that bridge?
