Its amazing how alike this style of music is to your opponents. Both have a great flow, a great rhytm and both set up the atmosphere right from the very start. The melody did sound a bit familiar to something i had heard before, but i couldn't pinpoint it so maybe its just my imagination. The one thing that bugs me is that in some sections, you used the usual Axis of Awesome chord progression, which is the most overused chord in the world and while it can gaurantee that itll sound good, it sounds good at the high chance that your song will sound generic. Also, the song could have used more variation to it as it got a bit repetitive towards the end, which finished off with a decent outro though. Overall, great song. Good work!

Note: This is your review from the NGADM Round 1 and as always im posting it here for your convenience.
It still gives the effect it was trying to achieve.
For some reason I knew that it would be hard to pick between you and your opponent. Just like his, your song creates the effect you're trying for from the beginning, and they're both EQ'd very well.
BUT for this, I hear a lot of repetitiveness in the main progression. Change it up a bit, and you're set.
This is totally my jam!
Newgrounds has music to download for free!
But another thing I think could improve Newgrounds Audio Portal is if Newgrounds had a playlist system of its own. That way you wouldn't hafta put it on your hard drive, or re-upload it onto YouTube to make playlists with!
YouTube is an on-demand music service (though its mainly on-demand videos), and it has a playlist system of its own. I think Newgrounds needs a playlist system soon!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
