What did I feel? What I heard?Because I do not have English language proficiency, I will focus on music. Hi everyone, Nothingpure, have a lot of fun with your song Sand of time, I understood the modal character if I'm not mistaken Eolio, I had to see on my guitar, I also made a song on September 11 the perspective should be different from yours, someone from the N1M told me that I make music having fun seems that this is the case for you too, big hug
buena pero...Es una buena canción, pero me ha dejado a medias. Me explico. Buena voz, buen comienzo, los instrumentos correctos, aunque a la batería le sobran cortes de platos, los arreglos de la instrumentación está bien y el espíritu de la canción, la letra no la entiendo bien. Donde veo el fallo, en que es siempre lo mismo, se hace muy monótona la canción, siempre lo mismo, quizá con un estribillo hubiera ganado mucho y saldría de la monotonía. Siempre hay tiempo de mejorar la canción. Por lo demás bien trabajado. It's a good song, but it has left me half-hearted. I explain. Good voice, good start, the right instruments, although there are plenty of cuts on the drums, the arrangements of the instrumentation is fine and the spirit of the song, the lyrics do not understand it well. Where I see the failure, in which it is always the same, the song becomes very monotonous, always the same, perhaps with a chorus I would have won a lot and it would come out of the monotony. There is always time to improve the song. Otherwise well worked.
Sands Of TimeHello, Let me start by saying that I review from the aspect of how viable the material is in terms of placement / pitching to an established artist or publishing company. The other concept would be from the point of view with you as an Artist.... in which case the song is either liked or not. The production is nicely balanced and you have a strong hook... "The Sands Of Time" Nice work! If it were me I might take a look at the harmony and melodic framework of the tune... It's a two chord tune ( which is fine ) but special care should be taken when utilizing this concept.... I might start by listening to a successful two chord song and see how yours differs from a established successful endeavor.... Feeling Alright By Joe Cocker (Mad Dogs and Englishmen version) is a strong example of this style of writing. As I said earlier your hook is good... That being said the support for the hook could use some more development.. Listing different times and tragedies that transpired over time is effective but also feels a little disjointed and disconnected to your hook. If it were me I would review the lyric and see if there might be some better word choices that would be more supportive of the hook as well as developing your own personal input on The Sands Of Time. You have nice start on a tune and now comes the hard part... The dreaded re-write stage.... Good Luck and Keep Writing! RW
My Review - Nothingpure - Sands of Time by: BoomerI like the instrumentation of the song. If I am going to review a song I intend to provide constructive criticism as I would hope others did for me as well. Please take no offence personally, my intent is to point out things to help you improve. First off, The 1, 2, 3, - 1, 2 ,3 - 1, 2, 3, phrasing in the vocals gets really monotonous really fast. The music never changes to set up the Chorus. The vocals do not change key or melody to enhance the chorus; making it so the chorus does not stand out much, from the rest of the song. Also there were a few words that came off as kind of cheesy and not well thought out, or so it seems. In this I would recommend a Thesaurus (different words with similar meaning) and a Rhyming Dictionary. Both of these are fantastic tools to help the song writter find the perfect words they are looking for (freely accessible online). Other than that I would get on youtube and try learning more about the home recording process. Learn how to get your recording to sound better than a Living room sounding recording. A little eq and reverb on the vocals would enhance this song considerably. You can listen to my tracks, they were recorded in my living room but you won't be able to tell. I learned most of my understanding of recording from youtube vids. Took me a bit but I finally got it sounding much better. I wish you the best and hope this info helps y'all to improve. Keep it up. Cheers! Boomer
Good songThis sounds just like something that would of came out back in the big hair rock band days ... Hadn't heard anything like this in a really long time so cool stuff man you guys rock on forever
ok, but try harder.The song begins with a strong but too short intro which tries to sound rock and roll, but does not convince the average listener that I am. Then the voice kicks in, and I like the singer's tone, but, hang on, what about the tune ? Well it is exactly the same melodic line for the whole song (four minutes) ! No specific bridge, chorus, nothing : everything seems so repetitive ! The mini melody is nice, but why stick to this and share it for four minutes ??? Fortunately the guitar add ons , half way, give a little edge and interest to the rest of the song, but there's still 1'30 to go ! And after the instrumental part you hear the same things as before ! No lads, when you have got a good line, you have to find more to go with it. Too bad, because the general feel is good, but please add diversity to the whole thing, or we are going to sleep ! thanks.
Rocco - Sands Of Time is a modern lullaby for a nation.the sound created by Nothingpure is harmonically smooth and behind an untiring search for justice. The vocal with a cadence in the middle tone helps in the idea of passing the tragedy and everything that must be redone.Sands of Time is a modern lullaby for people of the United States of America.
Great Alternative GrooveThe track is well recorded and mixed. Melodyhas a haunting and contemplative feel. Great guitar work and vocals. Looking forward to listening to more. Keep making meaningful art and doing what you love.
nice songHi guys. Nice song. Dark but catchy and touching lyrics. Good song for a 2-chords-only composition. It gives me an " on the road"-feeling, which I like. It must be nice to hear this song whilst driving far away. Musically well recorded; this is the work of a BAND... The solo halfway through the song could have been just a little bit more elaborated, and near the end of the song you seem to stumble a little. But the lyrics are very deep and philosophical and I think I'm going to listen to the song again. Just like what they said about the Beatlessongs during their breakthrough: It HAS something. And I'm curious for more of your music. Check also my music and if possible, review it: N1M search: spiceypete Greetings from Pieter B. from Ghent, Belgium
From here everything is far awayFrom here everything is far away, even the music of these guys in Ohio who are getting so much stuff already heard. I do not think originality is their strength. Instead, it is the rhythmic base well-planted with your feet in your hunting ground. The voice, while striving hard, is lacking in that spark that could help make the leap of quality to some Nothingpure song, especially at Sands Of Time. He knows very well the bassist, though perhaps in the mix, he tends to exaggerate in making it a bit too present. Overwhelming. You're good, you feel even lower. In Italy, I would like to enjoy the country festivals, in the States I think they are one of the many groups that do things that are already heard, energetic, genuine, without much pretense, some 70s, a good rock with passion. There are those who do better. Good luck!
Limp god-bothering plod rock with inane lyrics proves the Devil has all the best tunesA bog-standard riff accompanies a banal series of word farts that seem to be vaguely bemoaning the possibility of Holy War. A cliched 'sands of time' chorus combines with references to pharoahs, pyramids and a gratuitous mention of 9-11 to produce a limp anti-war song with no discernible merit.
