== This is an NGAUC Audition Round Review. ==
Dang! Melodic trance is always really fun, and this just checks all the boxes. The mix is fantastic. It’s very very well arranged and varied - there are many sections that work very well together, and the breakdowns are just as interesting and well thought out as the climaxes (which is very rare to see in edm!). If I were to complain, I’d say that the main melody at 2:16 could be better - but thats just because the rest of this song is so lovely that I had very high expectations! You did great here. Score: 9
Mini-scores (See http://johnfn.newgrounds.com/news/post/936953 for what this means and how to improve)

Thanks a bunch johnfn!! much appreciated!
Sounds really awesome, but I can't listen to it really, since the hi-hat that plays through out the song is really rough on the ears. It's okay if I lower the volume a lot, but I love blasting songs on full, and this song does loose some awesomeness when on quiet.
Though if you fix it, I'm definitely going to listen more to this
you should listen more to this anyway lolz.
But ill fix it soon, just for you.
Only problem with the song: the hi-hat at around 0:50 hurts my ears, but maybe my headphones are up a little too loud. Oh well.
Everything about this song is where I wish I was at in music production, especially that complextro-esque bass at the beginning. It's something I've been trying to make for a while. Was it massive you made that with? Tell me your secrets plez (not really :P) Epic submission to the NGAUC, and good luck!
i mostly use sylenth for all my synths ;)
and its the ride combined with a hi hat that causes your ears to hurt. i will do something about it ASAP and update the audio. thanks for mentioning!
You display a level of complexity that I cannot currently create in regards to dance music, because well.. I'm not good at dance music.
Everyone has their very own qualities.
Dont be discouraged because you are equally good at something else!
Thats my message to every other person who reads this.
It's been a long time coming, but the effort really shows. There is just something so alluring about so many aspects of this. The snare roll, that atmospheric fade at 1:28, that fade in to the main melody at 2:14, the lead you used for the main melody. I can't really describe what it is, because normally I would have an issue with this lead, but it just seems to work so well in this.
I love it. Keep it up!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
