But to be honest, the synth that comes in at :30 has moments where it sounds great and others where it really clashes with what else is going on. Reading your author comments, that may have been what you wanted, but I'm not sure it works musically.
I love the percussion and how it's strong in the back with sound sounds that overlap the other instruments. The fade out/back in with a marching sound at 3:05 was brilliant.
I would end the song at 4:00 instead of the outro, as the sudden change doesn't seem to work, unless you extended the song to continue with the synth that comes in.
Overall 5/5, 9/10. Awesome. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the review, and I must say I agree with most if not everything you said. I'm glad you liked it though.
I noticed the synth clashing and EQed a little bit, but to no avail. And no, I didn't leave it like that because I felt it was appropriate, more likely out of laziness and lack of mastering/mixing ability.
I'm surprised you liked the percussion, I thought it was weak for the most part.
As for the end, just wanted to try something different and see what people thought.
