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:

- Quite honestly, there's only really one major issue with this track which I'd want to address, which is... the unrelenting repetition of it. Most of the instruments do maintain new and interesting things, but the chord progression remains exactly the same as a complete loop for each individual half of the music, and the basic string movement remains the same, leaving the overall intensity and dynamics extremely flat. Ultimately what this results in, along with the other instruments' lack of a substantial dynamic range, is a track that's pleasant but very forgettable.

Compliments to the Composer:

- There's not too much more to say. The melodies are nice enough, the mixing isn't bad, the chord swell in the middle is chill. It reminds me a bit of the Age of Empires soundtrack in the second half. Quite honestly, it sounds like a very pleasant background loop to a moderately tense section of a video game.

Final score: 7.8

Omson responds:

Hey thank you for your review! Funny that you mention Age of Empires since this track is part of my 20 track Fanmade Soundtrack for AOE 2 called The Forgotten Hero :D
