Your animation was very good, and the scene with the face-making was almost funny, but apart from that this really wasn't funny at all.
Not Really Funny
Hit puberty before voice acting first, please. :)
You have a nice idea going here, and I can tell that your animation skills are up to par to satisfy a lot of irate Newgrounds goers. ;)
I was reminded of the Resident Evil style quick action reflex cutscenes, where one had to unexpectedly tap a series of buttons in order to... not die...
A good idea, I hope we get to see it come to fruition soon!
Guitar Hero - Zombie Style
Brilliant idea, original and flawless. Killing zombies and playing guitar hero... my friend, you just combined to two most popular video game ideas in the history of mankind. Just the idea alone is jaw-dropping in its brilliance. I tip my hat to you.
Insert Summary Here
Your guitarist(s), bassist, and drummer are very good. Your lead singer and backup vocals have talent as well. You have all the makings of a potentially great band.
However, your lyrics are plain, cliché, and sort of whiny. Now, before you bristle and accuse me of not liking the style of music, think for a moment. If your band ever becomes popular, you might consider putting a bit more effort into your lyrics.
I think they follow a train of thought, but some lines conflict with the others or don`t make any sense at all. Sometimes its as if you`ve written a love song, other times a breakup song, and sometimes it dips lightly into the emo genre.
Now, you might think this a minor thing, really, but the core of a song apart from the instruments being played are the lyrics. That`s what allows listeners to identify with the song, and what in turn sells your album.
Right now they sound random and hurriedly thrown together, which throws off the quality of the music, which is good. Keep it up regardless, good luck to you and your band.
Very Well Done
It's an interesting deviation from some of your other works. At some points it goes from ambient to miscellaneous and, and back and forth again, but manages to keep with the theme... whatever that theme may be.
I can't identify any of the instruments you're using, not being a digital music artist, but I can say that you use them to great effect. The only thing I can point out as to give this a negative side are the repetitive high notes predominant in the last 40 seconds of the song. They grate just a bit.
I don't know about everyone else, but I found that the tune started out cheerful and instead finished in a more melancholic atmosphere, which isn't very common in music.
Overall, I liked it quite a bit, and would definitely listen to any more of your music, whichever the genre, should it be released onto Newgrounds.
This is a Summary.
Ah, now once I hit 1:24 of this song, I knew I'd want to download it.
I for one am especially fond of guitars, more specifically; acoustics, so you get an automatic +4 to your rating on that alone. On top of that, I have really never heard a classical guitar played that well before, and the quality is very good indeed, allow me to compliment your father on his playing.
Violins do sound nice alongside a guitar or two, and you've mixed it in perfectly, staying in tune and on key throughout the entire song, not pushing the guitar away nor being diminished by it. The piano accompanies both instruments nicely as well. The lyrics sung at the end is as effective as a musician could ever hope for, and as a tribute, this is certainly a resounding success, and I applaud you!
I can't really think of anything you could change, and I'd probably have to berate you if you did. ;P
It is with great pleasure that I present to you my rating of 10/10, which I don't feel many people deserve in their work. No offense to anyone, it's just that 10 is 100%, flawless. Music that is perfect is very rare indeed.
Looking forward to more on your part. :)
