    Sorry, I've been lurking not posting much. Fractured a rib a few weeks back, but that's no excuse!

    Here's a new one. I've tried to apply the tips of everyone over the past few songs and "think" I've put out the best version of this song that I can. Please comment, both good and bad.

    Thanks,
    Timbo

    v1: plastic faces in the know = they dance about in our dreams
    mirrors on the buildings transmit stolen thoughts to the sky
    plastic spirits whisper ill = we can no longer fend them off with fire
    gargoyles frolick in the wood = so beautiful, insane


    c: we cannot slay the monster
    we have no thoughts of our own
    wild roses choke our playground
    tomorrow never comes


    v2: plastic faces on the go = foster fear and stifle our minds
    mirrors on our eyes in our ears = who can see the fire?
    plastic spirits spouting ill = demons shouting gibberish from on high
    gargoyles frolick on the wall = so beautiful, glorify

    Pretty interesting sounds. I'd don't know what genre I'd call it either. I like the drum groove with the heavy ride. Are you using soft synths?

    Funny!

    Thanks for the replies. Maybe it's "electronica" because Bulls Hit is right, everything but the bass guitar and my voice are softsynths, mostly the ones you get with the AKAI Advance keyboards.

    Just goes to show that expensive analog synths are a matter of taste and will not necessarily get u better results

    Definitely EDM, but sounded good to me.

    I am wondering if you could get more sound depth out of the mix. I have listned to some EDM guys and some of those folks really know how to pull out some sound.

    Thanks for the replies, now I've got to check out EDM and Indie Electronica music. As for unique, I'm tired of putting out guitar rock and have been aiming for something different.
