This is pretty cool! The mixing is a little off - sometimes the lead gets buried - but dang, you have a pretty good grasp on theory (or a great ear for good sounding chords :-). The orchestral sound choice, too, is well done - nice use of different string articulations, percussion, bells... all of that tasty stuff. The ending 30 seconds are great. 8

I'm very glad you enjoyed it and thank you very much for the detailed review! It's very helpful. I've looked at how you derive the scores and I've also looked at the guides you have on how to improve and I find them really helpful! You're awesome! Thank you again!
Amazing composition sir, the progression of the track kept me interested the whole way through. I definitely think you captured "a journey to find something within"
Thank you very much, kind sir! I am glad that you enjoyed it!
A journey to find one's own self/something within: captured perfectly!
I love the flow of this song. You nailed it perfectly, start slow and soft, rise, fall, hit heavy at the climax, and wrap it all up with a great resolution (albeit a bit of a sudden one). I feel that this captures the "inner self search" more than an underwater theme, but it does it quite expertly.
I imagine someone walking through a forest path just while thinking about a really heavy issue. This would be pretty fitting for their contemplating journey. Great work!
