Quite frankly, this falls in line with most of the trance and techno music I've listened to for years. Melody did get a bit repetitive, and maybe overkill for the snares at the beginning, but as for everything else, I found little flaws. A new melody twist and, more or less, snare usage, and this song would be as good as gold. As for the buildups, that's to come naturally. Trance, techno, dance, and more are a lot like that, or tend to be like that. Saying otherwise is a lie.
My personal opinion, you really nailed a lot of solid areas, but I agree, it could use some more flare in other areas, and less in others. Be that as it may, you still did a great job.

Kazm0 took the words out of my mouth!
Loved the beginning - hated the snare roll - actually it was unecessary at 50 something seconds.
The kick was weak, and poor hat sounds.
The main lead transition was not smooth, and the main lead didn't actually add anything to the song.
Liked the first half of this song :)
Basically read kazm0's review.
Fix drums, make a new main melo and.. ill give 10 stars :)
Man, you totaly inspired me! I love this song so much ! Downloaded, favourited, 5/5, 10/10. ANy day of the week, any week of the year. Great song. Love it to bits.
Thanks for the download, and the fave especially :D
Good to know that people are liking my stuff
And thanks for the review :)
I really like the beginning, quite soothing. Maybe add some more stuff going on though, like sweeps, FX, stuff like that.
I really found your snare patterns quite annoying. Just when you think the song is going somewhere, the snare backs off, it's driving me insane! I wouldn't consider 0:51 deserving all that suspense that the snare honed it, to be honest.
This is nice though, quite relaxing.
When the kick came in (1:17), I didn't like your kick/hat combo, sounds really rough, and gives the feeling of distortion. A different closed hat may give a better outcome.
2:34 sounds disjointed, and fairly random. I doesn't quite match the mood of the rest of the song, and the transition into it was anything but smooth. A sweep down into it, or a crash with a delay would make it a bit smoother, there's got to be another way around it though.
This part though, I feel that it's too, 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 for me. There's nothing interesting going on with the melody.
Overall, what you have here is a decent piece that needs only new drums, and a couple looks into transitions and variety.
I'll also have to say that I felt this went on for longer than I would have desired it to, due to the repetitiveness.
Yup, that's my 2 cents. :3
Sorry about the late response :S
But thanks for the review.
Pretty much everything you pointed out I'm now trying to work on, especially varying the melody.
I can really see where you're coming from with this, so thankyou for your advice... It really is extremely helpful to me :D
And the percussion at the start will be sorted out aswell, so that it's not all stuttery and higgeldy figgeldy.
Thanks agian for the review, and your advice.
I really like this.
This is a very very good song. I don't think there is anything thing that you could do to make it better. It just makes me smile when I hear this because it's so upbeat. I love the piano melody you have in there and when I heard it right from the start I knew I was going to like this song. Very Good Job and Keep up the Great Work!!!
5'd, 10'd, and fav'd
