It is meant to be the theme of the final confront between two very important characters in my series. It was quite difficult to make.

if it makes you feel any better i thought most of the transitions were fine, but you could probably shape them more so that the abrupt parts come in more dramatically.

like, what i mean by shaping would be like having the guitar fade in very quietly like a bar before it's mean to start playing, but only fade up to a fraction of the full volume so that it still comes in really hard... aaaagh it's difficult to explain. but it gives the "drops" (pardon the term) a lot of extra energy and makes abrupt transitions feel a lot more purposeful (AND a lot more abrupt, sometimes)

you won't always need to do that, but i find it really helps make "abrupt" changes feel more natural even if the effect is reaaaally subtle

mix could be a lot tighter, too much reverb imo (try a higher cutoff frequency and shorter delay)
or even if it was less wet and more selective, not every instrument should have the same amount of reverb in most situations
also everything is trying to be the same volume and stepping over the other instruments places in the spectrum (mainly in the bass region). when this is happening you should be using EQ to cut holes in one instrument to make room for another. look up "subtractive mixing", i'm really bad at explaining it haha

anyway the composition was alright and i can hear where you've made some interesting and unique choices, especially in that one arpeggio.

You have a lot of interesting parts here, but they come in and out too suddenly, and that doesn't make them work together.
It gets better toward the end a bit, but if you want this to work, keep it gradual. Like at 2:12, what you have immedately drops out, save for the drum beat, but you should leave more in there to smooth the transition.

Abrupt transitions were intentional.

Thanks, I'll see what I can do about it later.
