This is my submition for the NGADM finals!
Ive never spent so much time on a track, ever! MORE THAN 30 HOURS went into this track.
8 minutes of orchestral moody music. it tells a story of mystic exploring, from walking the desert badlands to discovering secret oasis coves.
I went for that kind of music that always changes, and makes a solid atmosphere without beeing in your face too much.
This is my first track like this!
I had to lower the quality a bit, hope it diddnt affect the song too much!

I worked so hard on this, so i really hope you enjoy it!

All respect to SkyeWintrest fo rclearly having the appreciationenough to be so very thorough, although, really, it's tough to demerit this song for being repetative after two minutes. Two minutes is about the length of an average tune, after all, and this melow melody doesn't exhaust the ears.

Besides, the melody stayed constant, but it's not like the tune didn't at all change. Something new happens at every minute mark. I think the subtleness of the changes was done extremely well. Any greater and it wouldn't have kept the flow.

I loved it.

Final round! Here you are, here is your review, here is your song, at the end of the road! Does it succeed?

The Good:
-That's a really nice intro, though it's a tad slow.
-I like the unique little melodies throughout it, they work together with the instruments to create a really cool atmosphere.
-That effect at 2:19. It sounds almost like a rain stick. Really nice.
-Nice change in chording after the shift at about 2:12.
-Mixing's great, as usual.
-Your transitions were fine, and you fooled me with the outro at first - made me think it was a normal fadeout... but then it wasn't!

The Not-So-Good:
-Unfortunately, at about the 2 minute mark, it gets a bit repetitive - you've been using the same melody for a long time. I'm glad you changed it up after that, but still.
-Would have liked more of a tune throughout 2:58-422. While initially the chords are fine, it really needs a stronger melody afterwards.
-With a song this long, it really needs a change in the constant 4/4-ness. There are other time signatures, like 3/4 or 7/8, or if you want to get funky, do something like 5/4 or 11/8, or even 15/16!
-Feels like you always have something playing on each beat. Not the best thing for an entire song.
-Alright, by the 6-minute mark, it's definitely feeling very repetitive - this is partially due to the constant note on each beat, but also due to your tendency to hold onto a single tune for too long - it also seems to get a bit 'meandering', I'd have liked it if you kept a bit more of a constant tune so I had something more to recognize other than just instruments/percussion.

Overall: Wow, you REALLY went away from your usual style on this one. ...and made it 8 minutes long to boot. I'm impressed - you have successfully tried out a new style. Good work! 8.5/10
