Not very happy with how this turned out...

Turns out I can't blurt out a song in a few hours, NGADM totally drained me and this here came from the last smidgen of inspiration I had in these four days.

I felt it would be unfair to the guys who didn't make it into N.G.A.U.C if I didn't turn up with a song, so at least I delivered a half one.

fits somehow a final battle from final fantasy or any other J-RPG at that

Love it.Nice batte music 5/5

I like the instruments and mood, although the intro was a little short and disorienting. You should've fleshed out the ideas you had with the choir a lot more. 5 seconds is not a sufficient amount of time to introduce the major themes of a track, however short. I'd suggest slowing the pace way down in the choir, and then that'll create some valuable contrast when the strings come in. I did enjoy the cinematic mood and intensity of the strings, but structurally this is not a complete piece at all. Treating :06 as the intro, you have a moment of climax (into :28), then perhaps what can be likened to a bridge, and a post-chorus/verse at :48. The percussion at the very end does a pitiful job of tying up and concluding this piece. I just need MORE, SilverPoyozo. I'm sorry. I can tell you have talent. The moods and instruments are beautifully done, and harmonically it's well done as well, but I simply can't get past the rather rushed and disorienting vibe I'm getting from this. It's too fast-paced - I can sense how rushed you were in creating this based on the mood of the piece (which, strangely, may even be a good thing that the piece can communicate that to me). Anyhow, I'm afraid this won't earn a very high score. I KNOW that this is not your maximum potential, though, so I'd encourage you to continue working on this. Best of luck at the NGADM. ;)


SilverPoyozo responds:

It was expected, it was very hastily put together and I was already spent from another recent composition. I can't defend this track much, but it was my intention to make it a loopable boss-like theme for game soundtrack, so the short introduction was supposed to do basically that, scare the listener and fill him with adrenaline just before the fast strings consolidated the feeling of intensity and rush.
Other than that, I absolutely agree, thank you for the detailed review.
