NGAP 10TH ANNIVERSARY CONTEST REVIEW
Wowww, finally someone covers what's basically considered the Newgrounds theme song. I was worried it would get neglected!
The production is awesome. You're one of the people on Newgrounds who I can always expect great sounds, solid mixing and good production in general. The snare/clap in your beat is just golden and works so well. In fact all your drums are just perfect. I would've liked a bit more character in synth at 1:05 since it feels a bit plain compared to the original's, but honestly other than that your sounds are splendid, and complemented nicely by the aforementioned good production value.
Having said that, I expected a LOT more from you, man. I know what you're capable of making and this does not live up to it, mainly in terms of creativity. The creativity factor is not present here; most of the awesome ideas in this cover are ideas that I can't credit you for because they were in the original. This feels overall quite bare and lacking intricate thought put into it. You've got some much more high-quality sounds and production than the original has, but that alone isn't enough to constitute a high mark. Not quite sure what's happening at 0:46 too. I love your idea but it's not executed as well as I would've hoped.
A bit of a disappointment overall, but still a good attempt with production that's hard to fault. Decent work!
