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:

- Really, one of the biggest things this track needs is SOME difference to the chord progression and melody. The fact that they remain the same the whole time tends to make the track get old very quickly. The changes between instruments are fairly minor, so they don't provide that much variation. You can have a secondary chord progression with a different melody for a B section in advance of your drop bringing back the main theme, speaking of which...

- The dynamics and sound development honestly don't do anything. You can master the track quite a bit louder without distortion. Try using a limiter with a threshhold of -1.0dB, then raising the makeup gain until a bit before you hear any distortion. Secondly, however, the drop doesn't actualy do anything. It would work far more if you had a raise in dynamics here by adding more bass-heavy kicks rather than maintaining the same type of hip-hop percussion. You can also add a bit more bass and perhaps use some filtered supersaw pads to enhance the impact of the drop as well.

Compliments to the Composer:

- The piano chords are actually lovely, and the bell synth fits them very nicely. Your lead into the drop also felt like you were preparing for a much more intensive drop. I think you have a good sense of harmony and melody, and once you've worked on arrangement you'll have some very satisfying music. It might even be worth looking into more hip-hop inspired rhythms for your backing tracks rather than working quite as much on making something into trance!

Final score: 6.5

V1ZION responds:

Hey, thanks for your review. I know the melody is the same throughout and the drop is a bit underwhelming. There are still a lot of things I have to work on as I’m growing. I haven’t put bass in a lot of my tracks, but I’ve heard it’s something really essential when making one, so I will surely look into adding some bass when I’m making a new song. Thanks for the compliments; I really appreciate them. I will take all of this into consideration, and I will definitely use bass in my songs more often.

Piano could be more reverbed or unique, but the rest is cool

V1ZION responds:

Thanks for your review. I’ll work on the piano tracks in my future songs!

Thank you so much for making this song for me :)

V1ZION responds:

You’re welcome! :)
