Hey don't look at it that way. If that was the case you wouldn't have been chosen among the top 32 from almost 200 artists.

I haven't reviewed your track yet but I'll have you know I think it's a big improvement from your Round 1 track. Your new approach to making music seriously worked well. And to be honest we need more metal in the NGADM. Please come back :c.

But yeah haha great job making it this far.

Maybe there should be, but honestly I don't like competitions. Music is subjective, so no one can really say what's better or not. Someone might enjoy my music more than Bosa's per se, but that doesn't mean I'm better, or vice versa. I write what I'd like to hear, and what I think is great might be terrible to someone else's ears. If someone likes my tunes, that's all I need. I don't need to win a competition to feel good about myself, or my music. This is just something I do in my spare time. I've got a band that I'd like to focus on more because playing music live is way better than having headaches over volume levels and tones.. :P

The pairups for Bosa have been great so far... they're always well matched and it also seems Bosa always wins by a hair. :D

I really can't wait to see what happens between TroisNyx and Bosa... Trois has a very strong and upbeat style that is very unique from Bosa's own (mostly) upbeat style.

Your lolly has been confiscated due to quarantine reasons. You can have your trailer though.

Time spent doesn't always directly relate to quality. What you did with the time you spent is what's important.

Heehee, I'm certainly not complaining about an improved score. But I also can't say that I expected it at all XD

PS: Good luck to those advancing to the next round. =)

Believe me, I'd feel the same with my poorly-mixed songs. Anything we do is bound to be improvable at some later point -- I wouldn't worry about this, and I trust you won't either. So long as people know you're sharing yourself in the song, that's all that matters. ^_^

Anytime. ^_^

Now even though this week is going to be full of introductory classes for the Legal Practice Course and moving house preparations and whatnot, this is also the week that I work on my NGADM submission. It's going to be tight, that much I can say......

Thanks. <3 I'll be needing all that, and prayers and good thoughts. If I can get through this week and successfully complete everything, NGADM submission included, that'll be a week well spent.

Well, I was told upfront that there'd be ONE DAY of lectures per week.... and then all of a sudden our introductory sessions are ALL DAY EVERY DAY! Not like I even foresaw this happening..... The standard for the Legal Practice Course is one day of lectures per week. If this were the case this week, I'd have much less worry even completing the thing!

Wasn't aimed at you. I was just saying in general since lots of people are having doubts and trouble finishing their submission, you guys must understand why I said the NGADM is tough in that disclaimer.

That does sound rough though, good luck!

Thanks. I am doing my best; I do certainly hope that I might keep a comfortable pace with which to finish this song. After all, including today, I have seven days, and I've done something today. Let us wait and see.

How's everyone doing on his song?

The lyrics are done. Music-wise, I'm about 50% done and doing my best to sneak some time (half an hour to an hour each evening) so that I can finish it. I expect it to be up either Saturday evening or Sunday evening (my time).
