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:

- Let's start with the composition here. Your chords stay same throughout the piece, without any variation - even in dance music, there tend to be secondary chord progressions during the breakdown and to continue the drops more effectively. However, even more than that, your melody is somewhat aimless. It seems to take the form of ABAC, but the B and C sections don't particularly 'conclude' anything. A couple ways that can improve your melodic writing are (1) writing out melodies from songs you like to get a feel for how they sound and (2) trying to SING your melodies. If it doesn't feel good to sing or especially even hum, it tends to not be as good since that can keep the track from being very memorable.

- Let's also look at your builds and drops. The drops you have are fairly simple and calm, not actually providing much contrast to previous sections. Especially notice how at 0:40, you have a build going up until 0:45 with a lovely drum fill, but after that doesn't change the sound palette much or dig into the sub-bass to make the sound bigger for listeners. Try filtering and removing bass as you go through transitions to make the drop more impactful, and add some sub-bass as well as using a larger background sound to really achieve an IMPACT. This also hooks the listener and helps them remember your piece, since they'll have a cathartic dopamine hit from the drop releasing tension built in the buildup.

Compliments to the Composer:

- Honestly, solid sound design and general arrangement here. Even if there isn't enough contrast, you have some lovely plucks and build into your drops, even with a breakdown later to provide space between the first and second drops. Really nice effort and a solid job, you have a good foundation to work on more music in the future!

Final score: 7
