I like the melody at the beginning. I think the synth at the intro gets a little buried in the mix when the melody comes in at :15. The instruments are a bit cheesy, especially the one that comes in at :07. It seems that the drums also get a bit overwhelmed by the mix at times, like at 1:20. It couldn’t hurt to tone down the reverb at times, especially on that all-powerful lead that plays from 1:23 to 2:05. The piece also had a bit of a constant sense of energy that I would’ve liked to see you strip away at some point, just for variety and structural relief. I liked the outro, but I think this piece needs a lot more shaping and phrasing and dynamic contrast. After a time, it’s hard to keep me engaged given the lack of variety across these parameters. Overall, it’s not bad. You clearly have a great sense of melody and harmony, and the texture is full throughout. Keep at it, man!
