i really like the melody. no complaint there. i think the percussion could use a slight makeover. possibly something a bit louder and "tighter". but other than that it's pretty rad.

I thought it was really good. Very cheerful, happy music. I'll probably listen to this again when I need to find motivation. Good job.

This is quite awesome for just being your first song! The choice of sounds is excellent, the melody is nice and simple, and it mixes things up enough to keep you interested! One suggestion would be to add a little more variety to your drums, especially around the middle portion of the song. It's ok to keep them simple when you slow things down, but slowly adding in the hats again or just giving the kicks a few ghost kicks would really put it over the top! Great work!

Unlike a lot of songs that I have personally come across on here, the intro immediately caught my attention. The plucks sound you used is great, and the main on going theme is solid. I can tell that you were trying to keep the variety up. There was never a time where I thought that it was getting truly repetitive; It always felt like it was evolving into something else. Though that could be partly due to the fact that I liked the tunes enough to not get bothered by the amount of repetition that was there.

Even though it mixes the beat up exceptionally for the kind of song it is, I still feel like it could have actually strayed from the main theme you had going there a bit more. I thought around 1:56 or 2:11 would have been a good time to do that. Instead, it almost feels to me as if you were scrambling to find something that kept the main theme/beat stay fresh, even though it was overstaying it's welcome a little. I think the song would have been overall more powerful if you had tried to go for a more proper bridge, rather than trying to run your main melody to tears. That contributed to the feeling of fatigue I got when the outro came along.

Or maybe that's not what you were going for. Maybe you wanted to keep the main theme going throughout the whole song, and that's fine. I still think it could have been done a bit better. I wasn't that big a fan of how you used the synth that popped in around 1:59, and around 2:31 it started to feel grating instead of being the big climax that you were probably going for.

But anyway, still really freakin good considering this is your first song. So keep it up!

First of all, thank you for the in depth review. They help the most.

Anyway, thank you for the compliments on the melody and the plucks. It took me a while to see what sounded good in that chord progression.
As for straying away from the synths at around 2:11, That's not technically the drop yet. I was aiming to preview the synths after the buildup, Then the drop comes.
Also as I stated below, I was trying to go for the big house music type feel. Which usually involves an array of synths as the main chorus.

"it almost feels to me as if you were scrambling to find something that kept the main theme stay fresh"
I do see where you would say this, because the song had a change literally every 10 seconds. But i was honestly just trying to lead up to the main chorus at 2:11.

"and around 2:31 it started to feel grating.."
If you could, please elaborate more on what you mean by this. I don't quite understand, but I feel this could be extremely useful criticism.

Thank you for leaving a great review. and i will most definitely give you the flp to see what you could do with this track. I am sure it would be amazing.

4.5/5. Sounds really relaxing, and has a nice tone to it! I can see it being used in a puzzle, or concentration game of some sort. I like the parts where the secondary parts drain out, and the melody turns into a trance, it was a really nice transition. Though, the high-pitched trance a bit after sounds a bit too high-pitched for my liking. Nice job though, and cool stuff!~


ThomasTimms responds:

Thanks for the positivity. I can understand what you're saying about the high pitched-ness. I was trying to go for that big house feel with the synths.
Thank you
