No need for review. I say Perfection! (Even if I were to put a legitimate review it would be empty cause I would have nothing to criticize).

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like it :)

You, my friend, are LEGENDARY! You are the most fascinating artist I've met on Newgrounds! (Also Waterflame, Djjaner, DjNate, etc.) I just love the melodies, beats, and most of all, how hard you worked on this song. (If you did work hard.) If I tried to make something like this, well, you know.. it would be.. the worst song ever. But anyway, I looooove your songs. SOOOOO amazing. Especially this one. You would know the rating I gave you. :3

Thanks for the kind words :) I'm glad you like it!

0:00 OK we're starting off with some nice chords, uplifting.
0:13 I can hear strings behind it. It's uplifting
0:25 I think the orchestral build up is a bit cheesy
0:34 That riff on top that repeats is quite good for building up, the filter automation that I think I'm hearing is pretty good for building up.
0:55 I feel like this is a soft build up, i hope the payoff is good
1:04 I think the payoff could have been more climactic here, the main synth feels a bit cheap like it was put through a simple Gross Beat pattern, but it's not exceptionally bad
1:37 Pretty great mixing here. I like the composition of the track, it feels professional
1:48 Oh. That's good. The crash delaying at every beat.
1:57 AH YES i like this synth a lot, especially the wobbles at the very last note of each phrase. It's very funky.
2:18 I don't know if this is different from the first, but I liked this payoff a lot more. It is more energetic perhaps than the first. Shame on me if it's essentially the same composition as the first drop
2:50 Soothing.

Overall this song is quite well mixed if a little uneventful. The synth in the second build up is a lot more interesting than the first, which made the payoff make a lot more sense. It's very happy dance music, which generally with these types of song I would feel like I get a sickening feeling from how sweet it is, but thankfully this song more teeters on the less sickening side of the spectrum by providing some actually decent melodies. I would have liked to hear more hype in the song than easy listening, but for what it aims to be, it succeeds on most points.
