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:

- I am SO surprised that this is mastered so quietly. This is actually really solid overall, and I think it would be much better if the dynamics weren't quite as squished as they are, but also if it were mastered to around -1.0dB like most tracks. That would allow for more audible depth and detail to the sounds you use (since there would be more audible variation in volume, especially letting you have more of a break in loudness during the calmer sections). This would also include making the lyrics far more clear since the enunciation could be heard better.

- I would say as well that the... articulation and enunciation of this could use some work. The vocals are very difficult to understand since they don't stand out on TOP of the rest of the music. The pad used for the chords and harmonies throughout this track is also really... "blobby", for lack of a better word. It has a bit too long of an attack, since a lot of what helps vocals in hip-hop is the really crisp, clear, and snappy sound of the instrumental.

Compliments to the Composer:

- Man, regardless of the critique up there, this track is satisfying as heck. I really appreciate the inclusion of vocals to begin with, as they keep the track satisfying through the different sections of music. The fact that you have a really solid B section makes me enjoy this SO much more as well, and the final outro is tasteful through the slowdown, even if it's a bit basic. I really like this, and hope that you get through to the next round as I would love to hear more.

Final score: 8.2
