This sounds like it would belong in a good side scroller. It's a interesting
mix of orchestral and synth elements, and the change in feel in the middle
kept this song interesting for me. Great mixing and production values.
Here's your round 3 review! It'll be a bit harsher than your previous reviews once more. Harsher the closer to the end we get!
Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh. :c I was not feeling very generous toward repetition in this round.
-Very bouncy - I like the little arpeggios in the beginning. This is so completely "Waterflame" style it's insane. Nobody could possibly mistake it for anybody else's work, I'm sure.
-Come to think of it, I like almost everything about the beginning.
-I really really liked the different kind of chord progression you used in the main melody. It's definitely more unique and sounds cooler. Also the main melody is very cute to my ears.
-At about 1:32-1:34, I lurv the little metallic sound there. It sounds *so awesome*.
-Mixing's great from what I can tell.
-I'm not particularly a fan of the snare you used. I feel as if a slightly longer sample with a bit more in the higher frequencies would have been better.
-The synth coming in at around 0:07 sounds a little bit 'ew' where it's placed with all the softer samples.
-Hi-hat at 1:40 is really a bit too much in the high frequencies, it hurts my ears. This does apply other places, though it's most prominent there.
-This doesn't really change much at all. It's nice, just... boring. Would have loved more variation and ideas in it, because it gets very 'samey', very fast. This brought your score down significantly, as I REALLY don't like songs to do the same thing/same kind of thing for most of the song.
-The end doesn't appeal to me as much as the rest of the track. Aside from the classic-fadeout-copout lazy outro, it has the same nasty synth as there is in the beginning.
Overall: Nice, but very boring since it sounds like pretty much the same thing for the entire 4 minutes aside from one break. This NEEDS more variation. That's my main complaint about it. Well, I would have liked if you tried something different but that's a relatively minor quibble. Unfortunately though, since you haven't really showed much of anything creative compared to your last two tracks and what I know you can do, I'm giving this a 6.5/10.
