soundtrack for a direct to video lamo titled documentary.

Lousy Dam Drugs RGMixProject

it's a soundtrack sounding song for sure ....

but to me, it's simply bits and pieces - snippets that might be usable in scenes at best. as a whole, the song takes a direction and tho it might have seemed like something "moving" ... it's really just somebody preaching. so if it's some sort of SAY NO documentary ... or maybe some evangelistic christian movie to scare kids - that's one thing ... but otherwise, it's got no chance of success as a generalized for sale song.

soundwise .... kinda flat and just yucky ... digital drums looped flat off the circa 90something drum machine ... the bass has potential as it's simple riff is cool and something could be built off it - unfortunately, nothing of interest was. so it sits there in infinite repeat with some basically lame sounds surrounding it and leading the way for some incredibly average vocals singing cold lifeless lyrics.

the simplistic synth samples get old and don't add much excitement, nor do they help ground the tune in melody. speaking of which, there just isn't any in this. it wants to rely on randomly interjected instrumental voices and the vox but neither actually serve the song much justice.

and no mastering .... no dynamics in the mix nor the mastering. just a flatline understated sound. brings no physical reaction to mind at all and a few times I actually found myself nodding off to sleep while listening.

and that's not good.

the final thought is that I did wanna find something I liked about the song and unfortunately, that's resigned to be only the potential of the bass ... otherwise, this one needs a complete rethinking and rewriting unless there's no desire for success outside of the slim possibility that some zealot organization might grab onto it for it's narrow minded approach to making life better for people that probably don't want nor need it's interference.

is that what any music, soundtrack or otherwise, is about?

nothing stands out in the track as great either - especially the vox - which seem dialed in by a less than average singer who uses some sort of effect to strengthen his weakness - maybe even hide it.

and that don't get it for me at all.

keep plugging at it - nobody that's anybody would use anything
