This is epic dude!! I love your chosen instruments. It is a little repetitive but I like the occasional variations you threw in.

Hello! This is a review for the NGUAC competition.

I've gone over one or two general categories of issues specific to your song, and one section of things I think also deserve complimenting. I prefer being very direct with my critique, none of it is meant to offend. Thank you for your understanding!

Constructive Criticism:

- This piece has two main issues here which feed in to the same result: It's good, but... not that memorable or engaging. First of all, one thing that would help quite a bit is having a clearer melody to fit your chord progression. At the moment, the only "melody" you have is the top note of each chord, which is voiced exactly the same way for the entire piece. At minimum, try throwing in some substitutions or inversions to the chord progression. At most, try developing a melody that can be used as a 'hook' for the listener to focus on. You can even develop it in the background of your drops.

- Secondly, the drops themselves... aren't actually that engaging. You have some lovely ways of concluding each hypermeasure in the drops, but the overall tone of these drops is very flat. As a comparison point for similar dubstep using chord progressions and no melody, have a listen to xKore's track, Eden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk8RGFN5txg Notice immediately how there are small bits of 'ear candy' and engaging background sound to lend it energy and a consistent textural tone. The drops have contrasting sections with a focus on bass and also, later, the chord progression returning to bring back the more melodic and harmonic feel.

Compliments to the Composer:

- So, while this track has some trouble remaining engaging and moving beyond flat textures, it's actually an incredibly solid foundation. You have a clear understanding of arrangement, the mixing is solid and clean, those small breaks with filtered phaser chords during the first drop are SUPER tasteful (the most memorable part of the entire track, in my opinion!), and you have a ton of room to add more texture and variety to maintain engagement. Really good and solid work here, regardless of my criticisms!

Final score: 8.7
