1Overall Description
Qwerty - "is the most used modern-day keyboard layout on English-language computer and typewriter keyboards." I didn't know that until I looked it up when thinking about reviewing this song. What bacteria has done in qwerty is bring a standard driving beat and have sharp pulsating sound shoot over the soundscape with twisted acid riffs backing everything up giving it a cool groove. The track's lack of variation suffers against bacteria's foundation. The track would of benefited greatly from more risk taken in the composition. bacteria is demonstrating his potential in music and for this being one of his firsts shows a solid and very interesting future ahead.
2Creativity Description
The sound itself is unique and the established mood of urgency is nicely produced. However with lack of variation it makes me wonder if bacteria could of done more with it, but it is his sound and seems that bacteria is trying to produce a unique vision. bacteria is definitely establishing his own voice in the few pieces he has produced.
3Artistic License Description
More could have been done. Don't be afraid to take a risk and step out of the box of what your producing to really bring a piece of music home. The mood, as stated above, is strong and that's the most effective part of this piece.
4Arrangement Description
The beat is solid, the repetition of that works for the track. I would of liked to of seen more variation with the synth "ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-tas." or perhaps more breaks and more work with the dark synth at the beginning. There needs to be a bit more to hold the ear and variation can do it. What is here is a solid foundation for a work that could grow.
5Sound Quality Description
No worries here. They worked.
6Does it work as a piece of music Description
This stands alone for a bit, but I know bacteria can bring more to the piece. The listener's ear can be easily lost to the repetition, but as I've said before, this is a solid foundation that I think bacteria should still build from.
