Interesting song. Here are further details below.
I am a fan of those drums. I'm not picturing an alien type theme but suspense with normal humans. Not enough funky sounds to give that extraterrestrial feeling. Nice job with the fx sounds.
0:29-1:22 I didn't really like the lead instrument that came in. I do like the strings playing in the background though. Unfortunately, you spent too much time at a stalemate. Felt repetitive to me.
1:23 - 1:36 I like this break in the action. The sudden blast into the climax right at 1:36 with the fx is great. Nice job here.
1:37-end. I hardly consider adding high hats as a change to the repetitive pattern. 2:03 instrument didn't feel like a progression. I feel like you started strong, but you ran out of ideas here. The pad instrument sounds poorly made. At 3:54 did you really need to drag it out that long? I will say the fx to end the song is nice.
Overall,I think you should have made this song shorter. I like the theme you were going for despite not sounding alien like, however there needs to be a progression. Your drums were well made and despite not really changing throughout the song, they portrayed emotion...not a easy task to do. As I said before, I feel like once you got a good idea going, it fell flat around the midpoint. You ran out of inspiration there? Kudos on the mixing and mastering of this song. I can hear everything clearly. Keep it up with making emotional songs. 5/5
Bye for now
