I love this song and it makes me feel up beat! It sounds so romantic in a way too, like I can picture a couple's lives playing in a montage-like fashion. :D

This could bring tears to my eyes.

If I were a slightly more emotional person. Amazingly elegant intro, followed up by an even better main section. My only problem? TOO SHORT. I know you made this for the Death Match which probably means you didn't have a bucket-load of time on your hands, but please come back to this and extend it. For now, I'll just have to live with a 2:43 download. ;D

There's not other way i can describe this besides simply amazing. I can scarcely find anything to criticise in this. Its simply great! What can i say? Blend is amazing, instruments are brilliant, melodies are varied and drumwork is fantastic. Some slight glitches in the intro but overall a great piece of work.


P.S This is your judging review from NGADM Round 1. I posted it for ya just cos its always nice to have more reviews.

Nice job!

This song is really awesome. It's one of the best New Wave songs I've heard in a big while, and it has that "Everything is going to be better" feel to it which I really like. I can tell you from now that if Chronamut took part in the Death Match, then he'd have a hard time beating this, despite him being such a good artist.

I really like the melodies. They're possibly my favourite aspects of this awesome song. The flute was awesome, and the guitar's melodies were fantastic. The melody played by that instrument which first appeared at 0:08 did get a little repetitive though, I'd suggest making a part in the song where the song doesn't have that instrument playing. Other than that, I loved everything that had to do with the melodies over here: it's hard to keep a smile off your face while you hear a song like this. As Blackhole12 and BanzaiBoo said, though, the song needs some mastering, especially when the drums come in, since when they enter the song, it instantly becomes cluttered and a little blurry. It's practically the main reason why I gave you a 9 and not 10. Also, a slow part played by the flute only might be cool, and a piano solo inbetween would be great :).

The instruments all sounded great, and fit well with the genre you were going for. That guitar sounds superb, and I really liked the sound of your flute, plus the piano's quality was decent. I don't think there are any instruments that sounded bad or any instruments that should be added, so great job! One thing that I enjoyed in this song was that you had loads of instruments playing at the same time, and actually playing individual melodies, but your song didn't sound messy. Maybe the EQing problems made it sound blurry and cluttered, but usually when I try and make a song which uses more than 2 different melodies playing at the same time, it becomes horribly messy and hard to keep track of. You did a great job making all of the instruments blend in well. Sorry for the really long paragraph :(.

I definitely can't complain about the transitions. They were all great and I couldn't find anything wrong in them. The song flowed very smoothly, and nothing was too abrupt. New instruments were introduced really well, and overall the song had very smooth transitions, and some nice drum rolls to transit from one thing to another as well. Buildups were pretty nice too.

The song is very well structured, and apart from that instrument playing the high notes which I mentioned a few paragraphs up, was awesome. I loved the intro as well, piano intros rarely come out badly, and this isn't an exception. The ending is almost perfect, IMO. I'd suggest ending it at 2:34 with that crash cymbal, and then fading from 2:35 to the end. Then the outro would be perfect, IMO.

The drums, despite the fact that they covered up all of the melodies and instruments, are actually very good. I loved the samples, and their variety was superb. Plus, the drum roll you did at 1:24 along with the crash cymbal after it was very well executed. The other drum transitions you did were all extraordinary as well, but the one at 1:24 was definitely my favourite. The drums fit really well with the song too, but maybe you could make the beats a little more complex. I mean (from what I heard anyway, the drums were quite cluttered and the volumes of the individual samples were quite weird) you only used a kick, snare and occasionally some background hat. Stuff like ride cymbals, shakers, tambourines, etc, could really do wonders to your beats. Also, your kick needs to be harder.

It does have its defects, such as wrong volume levels, repetitiveness of that instrument, cluttered parts when the drums come in, weak kick, outro that's slightly off and lack of solos, but all of the good aspects of this, such as excellent instrument choice, great transitions, melodies that are out of this world, really nice structure, awesome intro, nice drum samples and great variety all make up for its defects. I was going to give it an 8 but this truly deservs the 9 I gave it.
