I like the instruments and mood. I think you need to work on your mixing a bit, though. The drums could sound clearer, and they will if you EQ the instruments more. Especially make sure you get rid of the low tones on all of the instruments except the bass and kick - it can get really muddy and distorted down there. This track is pretty repetitive, but my main problem with it is that there are almost no transitions. You might even be able to get away with just sticking a simple crash in there occasionally, but some more work with the drums or (if you'd prefer) sweeps and risers would be much appreciated. I do like a lot of the riffs and stuff in this piece, though. It has a lot of potential. Hope this review was helpful and keep at it, man. ;)

Thanks for your feedback. I listened to everything again on my Logitec 5.1 Surround system and my Razer Kraken pro headset and I can't really notice any of this muddy sound that you're talking about. I spent quite a bit of time cleaning up all of the instruments and sounds and everything sounded pretty clear to me. I didn't do any transitions because I wanted to keep it close to the original just with more modern sounding instruments. Maybe I'm just not hearing these things but if you would like to take this track and clean it up a bit or fix up the drums like you're talking about I would love to hear it but as it stands I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.
