looks nice but.. the lyrics aren't good, not good at all. Those combined with her "weak" voice didn't do it for me. The whole soundtrack just felt emotionless, didn't get to me at all.. nothing.. Perhaps I'm just too old for emo.. :(

Nice vocal, good scene...was on the party, but on my PC just text, no any other visualisations (music bugless ofcourse). XP SP2, P4 2.4, ATi Radeon 9550, Catalyst 4.9 (PS / no PS version same) :(

Some demo run correctly only on ATI, some demo run correctly only on NVidia gfxcards - wich card the development videocard. Suxxx!

Nice to see an oldskool group releasing new stuff. Great scenes and nice gfx. But as PS said, whats up with the melodramatic music and lyrics? Awfull Goth-wannabe Evenesence crap. Its just embarrassing.
added on the 2006-10-08 22:39:23 by tFt tFt
whats up with the music? its something different in my humble opinion. a techno, chip or gabbah would not have worked at all in this concept.

But itss all a matter of taste, i cannot blame u for not liking the soundtrack (which is great in my sick little world :)
Love it or hate it..but im glad the ppl at function loved it =)

alien: the music style itself is ok. its the cliche scene poetry and the lack of emotion performing it that ruins it. imho. im sure some other people disagree entirely.

The best demo from Function. I liked it a whole lot when it was shown and even more now I can see it clearly.

Whoa. /me likes. Some nice modelling (on purpose lifeless?). The voice didn't sound very professional, but i don't think it's the singer's fault. Poetry is surprisingly good, apart from a few points.

A novel concept, worth a thumb almost by itself. But it's also well done.
rulez added on the 2006-10-09 00:23:00 by eye eye
Everything about this was great! A really good demo!

The poetry started off making a lot of sense and I felt it spoke directly to me but then started turning into nonsense.

I won't hold that against the demo though. I loved it!

different sound, but fits quite good to the overall very good demo...

good art work, but bad lyrics (sorry, they sound like they're translated from another language), ugly font, and unconvincing music.
rulez added on the 2006-10-09 01:13:57 by parcelshit parcelshit
I don't like the voice (not exactly the lyrics) and the font. I don't think both match the visuals and general mood and ambience of the demo. Other than that I think it's great :)

Nice gfx, buildings, music EXCEPT that horrible whining. Liked it. Would like much more with "remove vocals" option. Sorry for singer, nothing personal, i've said the same thing and worse to 99,3% of scenemusic with vocals.

Nice gfx, but the voice and the lyrics broke the mood and left me thinking "wtf?" until the demo ended. Piggy.
added on the 2006-10-09 19:09:34 by slack slack
lol, is that the kind of demo that they put on the church now? I missed an "amen" on the end.

Also, just so you know, typography is something very important when doing a visual composition. You just ruined it with that font :(
added on the 2006-10-09 19:22:25 by mrdoob mrdoob
personally speaking, I liked it . Great graphics, but i didn't like the vocals in it at all. They are horrible (IMO). But thank god, finally a demo that has not trashy goa-trance-drumnbass-mess. However, I think the melody of the vocals lacks inspiration. Sorry Vincenzo, I really love most of your stuff, but this tune I don't. :) But Rebels guys: This is one of your best efforts in a looooong time. Congrats for winning Function, I' say you deserved it!

oh my god, this is truly tragic. so, it's a 3ds-player (man, i haven't used that expression in a while) with horrible typograpy and music that sounds AWFUL! the melody is all over the place, the vocals are pure crap (and don't even get me started on the scene poetry) and the whole thing sounds like it has been mixed/mastered by a deaf person. YUCK!

i thought things like these belonged to the "1st prod omg!!111cos(0)cos(0)cos(0)"-groups -- rebels, what the hell happened to you?
sucks added on the 2006-10-10 20:04:37 by gloom gloom
the soundtrack is so controversial that it hides the fact that the demo itself is plain simple. overall, it is not crap but it seems so cheesy. still kudos for trying anyway, i look forward to seeing better stuff of this kind next time.

That said, the content and especially lyrics sound like they were written by a lovesick 14-year old. Except they're more wank. If you do emo, do it properly :P

proper feedback: if there is something fucked up its easy to point and its the typography and the lyrics. there are some nice scenes, nice rebels logo, nice ideas, but damn.. i felt like "cheesy, partywinner cheesy cheese sandwich for emos" feeling during watching this. so please improve yourself, dont be so emo, take anti-depressants and such stuff to improve your mental condition if you feel like that girl.

Demo, correct. Doing shaders in a Pascal-written stuff gets extra thumbup [img]http://www.pouet.net/gfx/rulez.gif[/url]from me anyway, but not only because of that. I like the music too.

I don't like the red-flashing whatevers appearing part though. It's too much polluted by bad poly cutting, which destroys the mood for me. But not enough to cancel the thumb.

some nice gfx (great logo) and the code was not terrible. wost part for me was the music and I have nothing against emo. The tune was just too cheesy, with poor production and vocals. When you create the type of emo soundtrack you were attempting you have to be VERY careful of the actual lyrics. chosing the wrong words and metaphors will just make the song sound ghey. For instance: "I am just a number" = cheesey cliche alert! The song actually made me laugh. :)

not a bad demo tho....just that song. Good to see Rebels back in action!

In my opinion, this is an outstanding production. Naive. Fragile. Pure, beautiful. The music track is quite addictive and really great for sing-along! Both very emotional and passionate. Added the song to my main playlist and enjoying it!
