Goood!

Not only for my ears but for my eyes. I always listen to newgrounds music with scope visualizer. The bass is flowing, and the scope is waving. I love it. (For example at 0:15.)

Excellent work. The bass is good, the drums are awesome, the melody is kinda catchy. I can say nothing, but: This is beautyful! Keep up the good work.

(P.S.: You've got a half star minus because you made it to the next round, not me. Sorry for that. I haven't find anything wrong in this song.)

I like the dark mood at :12. It’s a little heavy on the bass frequencies early on, and there’s little sense of progression until around the 1-minute mark. I didn’t think you needed to drag out the intro as much as you did. The bright piano riffs at 1:24 were a welcome change, and they added to the sense of climax into 1:48. Unfortunately, you never really release the tension you built up there, instead creating a re-intro. I guess I was expecting a heavier drop before you had any sort of breakdown section. Also, those hi-hats get really lost in the mix at 2:25. I would suggest compressing them, doing some more careful equalizing with some potentially interfering instruments, and using some stereo widening techniques. I’m focusing so much on the hi-hats because they’re the main treble-range instrument you have in there for most of the piece, which is in itself a bit of a problem. The drums are mastered nice and loud, though, which is always good. During the second intro-buildup-refrain cycle, you also fail to deliver a cathartic emotional height, again stopping just short of it at 3:25 despite a distinct buildup there. This is especially surprising because this is a dubstep track, and dubstep is a genre that often prides itself with heavy contrasts between melodic and “drop” sections. By neglecting to include a prominent refrain/chorus section, you’ve missed opportunities to create melodic development, maximize emotion and drama, and give your piece an overarching sense of direction and conclusivity. That structural detail is my main concern with this piece, believe it or not. Some minor mixing/mastering issues and generic instrument choices also weighed down your score a bit. That said, I think this piece has a lot of potential. You did a nice job of maintaining a full texture throughout. Your melodies are enjoyable (if not well-varied rhythmically), and overall it’s pretty catchy, fun, and energetic. Keep at it, man. ;)

Turok 1 on the N64 (beginning of the song), the level where there's all the aliens and whatnot. Totally reminded me of that and for the nostalgia I'll give you props. Some pretty good submission (from what I've seen) for NGAUC
