Very well done! Very pleasing to this reviewer's ear.
The intro/leadup is especially captivating. Very melodic, almost whimsical, yet perfectly in tune with the entire track. You've got real talent!
However, I have two suggestions. First, at 1:25, I think the transition a little sudden; perhaps that was your intent, but I think that an instrumental transition would work a little more smoothly than a sudden dropoff. Secondly, and similarly, I think a specific ending would be just the golden finishing touch to an already masterful piece- the fadeout works, I think, but something a little more variant would be better.
Overall, though, it's quite wonderful! 4/5!
I have to admit that I composed and recorded this one in two days :P
I'd have to agree with Evil on this one. The intro was nice and sort of melodic but afterwards it went a little soft. It didn't have the same feel as "The guitar is right next to you." in the intro. It sounded kind of like it was recorded badly.
Great intro, great overall track, the mix and the drums are a bit weak though. Great composition though, but I don't know if it really fits in that contest.
personally I love the guitar in this - reminds me of a System of a Down intro :P
actually the rest kinda reminds me of system of a down - it's just missing his vocals haha.. kinda combined with a more halloweeney metal feel - not exactly sure what this has to do with love though dude.. still that wasn't mandatory..
the abtupt stop around 1:28 I felt could have been worked a bit better to return back to the acoustic calm feeling.around 2:29... I dunno it started to feel a bit awkward.. not sure why.. kinda just felt dragging on at that point.
I dunno man.. quality wise it was stellar but I think it could have had more structure put into it.
The beginning started off kinda sad, but very pretty. I really like the guitar's sound, though it could have used just a tiny bit off the top end, it's a bit grating on the ears. The next portion of Wind is very nice; the balance between the rhythm guitar, lead, and the drums is just about perfect. Then in the buildup at about 1:12, the hihat gets distracting with how unnatural it sounds. Back to the acoustic guitar, with a bit of theme-and-variations battling between the left and right panned guitars. The acoustic guitar sounds like the string is pinched. The electric solo near the end reminds me of Santana or Bob Segar. Overall, the piece feels too quiet, like it could have had some extra polish so far as compression and loudifying goes, but I really liked it.
10/10 for continuity
10/10 for composition
8/10 for catchiness
There isn't one part that seems like it's too abrupt of a change, so you get top marks for continuity; the entire piece is composed extremely well, so top marks in composition. However, my personal opinion is that, since it's all in minor it's just a tiny bit unappealing. Also, the way it ends is just kind of uncharacteristic with this kind of music.
