Er- I meant to say in my last review that maybe some thought should be given to accepting loops, if there is some way we can make that work on SoundCloud, or another site. :p
So, I'm really liking this one a lot! :D This just has so much style. Very unique. Your mixing has improved from your last submission, for sure! I gotta say when that guitar synth came in at 2:28, I found myself bobbing my head. Man this just sounds so videogamey ! You do nothing to challenge that assertion at 0:55. Greatness everywhere!
So your main strengths for this one? Composition, and mixing.
Yes, it began to get a bit repetitive -- but only chord-wise, because your melodies are just really fun and unique.
I'm just gonna repeat what I said in the thread, and say that this take on the theme was very refreshing to hear. It's as if we settled the biodome on another planet instead of a future Earth. Listening to this, I imagine the atmosphere outside to be hostile in the sense that it's not *scary* or *frightening*, but rather just...we can't go outside. Because reasons!!
Alien life is having a blast outside the dome, while us humans are having a blast inside the dome, too, and it all just works so well. Straight from the beginning of the song, that is exactly what I feel. And that pad in the background really helps establish that 'unearthly" sense.
This song is the epitome of having normal life take place inside the dome - something about your mixing makes the track feel very interior (I blame some of it on your reverb?), which is perfect for being *inside* this fun atmosphere.
I find it interesting that you wrote "It's not like there's monsters outside (or, who knows?)" in your description, because that just fits so well - the "or, who knows?" part. Because this piece gives off the vaguely mysterious vibe while at the same time maintaining it's cheerful, carefree-ness.
So this was definitely one of my top favorites in this last round, which had some very competitive pieces, no doubt! Very well done !
