This is an NGADM Round 1 Review
Oh geez, the melodies are jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Like stunkel said below me, you really hit all the right notes in the composition department. Memorable, well-composed, and incredibly captivating, with solid chord progressions to boot! 3:42's piano solo has to be what really sells your compositional prowess. With such a soft section, you really expressed a lot of emotional power and meaning.
Production is usually something I have little problems with when listening to your music, but I've got to say that this time round that isn't the case. First off, I feel like the mix isn't nearly as bright as it could be. I was really hoping to hear some nice high end fizz by 1:45, but I was left disappointed. Some of the sounds you used didn't quite fit with everything, and some sections are decidedly empty and lacking in power. This is why I feel like the strongest points of your track are the quieter ones, because over there you showcase your raw composing talent without the bells and whistles of a thick, well-produced mix, which of course takes more time and dedication than the 2 weeks of an NGADM round provides.
Anyway, you still get a high score from me for wowing me with such beautiful melodic content. Keep up the wow factor for Round 2!
