*sticks two thumbs in your EYEBALLS*

thx broc <3

I will 5/5 anyways!
I like it. Just a few things that needs fixing.

-First, it starts randomly. Transitions are important in trance music. An intro or a transition at the start will give the "oooh" factor to it. It's like, how a guy always tries to get the girl who plays "hard-to-get". You gotta make the start of the song "hard-to-get" so people will lean into. And then when they lean into it, it will explode into something great making their hearts pound to the beats. ^-^

-The bass is overpowering the kick. There needs to be a sidechain on that. Assuming you're using FL Studio, looking the short tutorial from FL Studio Guru's YouTube video, kick and bass. The side chain will make the bass volume softer every 4 beats the kick comes into. That will also give more of a pump to it.

-The kick is a weakling. More compression and EQ might solve it, but it could also be the fault of the bass like I said before! ^_-

I used to produce music but I don't anymore because I don't like doing it anymore.

Woa, late reply o.o

Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I'll try to incorporate it into my next song!

Excellently composed, Just not making an ambiance I can chill with. What the hell it grew on me-I'll be rocking glowsticks soon

larrynachos responds:

This one isn't really a chill song. I filled it with all of my energy and emotions. It's super intense!

Thanks for the review, man! I'm glad you like it :D

I like the frantic synth bass at the beginning, and the quirky lead at :15. I think you needed a more effective transition at :15, though, even if it was a simple crash. I like the climactic nature of it and the melodies. You have a great sense of harmony. I loved the transition at 1:25. I think this piece has a great sense of direction to it, and it definitely keeps my attention throughout. That said, I think you had some slight balance issues. For example, the bass at around 1:30 and onward was a little too loud. Also, you have some really high-pitched and harsh tones in there later on which could've been compressed more, at the very least. Otherwise, it's an extremely amusing, energetic, and fun piece. The title seems fitting. I think you needed another crash at 3:06 though to aid in that transition. The ending was good, and it doesn't even make a bad loop! Great work, Larrynachos! I think you could potentially go very far in this competition. ;D

9/10

larrynachos responds:

Thanks! Your points were all incredibly valid, and I agree with all of them. I'm flattered to receive such a high score!
