This is an NGADM Round 1 Review
I don't usually comment specifically on intros but I'll make an exception for this. DAMN that intro is one of my favourites of the round. You really nailed the atmosphere there. Another thing I was definitely impressed with was the amount of experimentation in this track. There are all sorts of sounds, from deep pads to dance drums to chill synths to saxophones. This is a truly unforgettable listening experience, packaged with a truckload of neat ideas and sounds. Somehow, despite the general haphazardness of your instrument choices, they still synergise well with each other to create this super interesting musical concoction that's unlike anything I've ever heard before.
My main issue with this is the apparent lack of structure. You've got a really experimental set of instruments and an unconventional melodic style, so I feel like you should've put in more effort bringing it all together. What started off as a really neat intro eventually just devolved into a series of riffs from different synths with varying rhythmic and harmonic accompaniment. There weren't really any repeating motifs and the transitions weren't anything special, which made the track ultimately sound loosely/carelessly tied-together. I feel like while you showed a ton of creativity with all these cool ideas and instrument choices, you didn't convince me enough that this whole setup can work to creative one cohesive song, if that makes sense.
Having said that, I can't help but give you a solid score because of the truly unique listening experience you've offered. Great work, and thank you for taking part!
