== I wasn’t your judge for the NGAUC, but here’s some constructive criticism anyways. ==
Holy crap! This piece is realllly coooool. I already loved the chords and the jazzy vibe, and then the synth solo really took me aback. My gawd I love pitch bend. The mix, on the other hand, needs a bit of work. I think it would be a much better song if the mix wasn't so darn dense. The song also clips in points, so you're going to need to turn down the volume of your instruments. Hypothetical score: 8.0

Hey, thank you very much for your constructive comment!
I'll try to improve the mix in my following tracks, but I'll improve it slowly, mixing is the hardest part of music (for me).
For the density of instrument, I know, the problem is... me. ^_^
Friends always say that, but I like it, so... If I improve the mix, It'll surely sound better.
Thank you again for this criticism!
I like the mysterious mood at the beginning, as well as the instruments. There seemed to be an appropriate amount of drama and suspense involved. It progresses pretty slowly, but I loved the climax and transition into the height of emotion at 1:04. It sounds very cinematic, and I love all the structural ups-and-downs that the texture offers. The percussion and melodic instruments at around 2:05 added a lot to the piece too. This is a very creative, unique, and engaging track overall. You took some real risks with it, but I think they all paid off! :D The ending is a bit sudden. You might need some reverb to smooth that out a little. Otherwise, there's an excellent atmosphere here, and I deeply admire your sense of harmony and progression. The mixing is pretty good, too. Keep up the great work, Nebulean! ;D
Hi ! Thank your for you kind comment !
I'm happy to see that you like it !
Yes, this track was a bit risky but you know, I like taking risks ! Composing without risks is too boring for me, so I try to be the most innovative as I can.
Thank you again for this kind comment ! :D
