***This is a NGUAC first round review. Forgive me if it is short, there are a hundred songs to get through!! Further rounds will be MUCH more in detail on your review!!***

I love verything about this piece. I love the style. Effects, loved the very 80's Guitar vs Synth solo section. 10/10 would see live again.

Mixing great. Variations great, form great. Its all great.

well done!

Good luck in the Nguac!

Really great job with the mix and the guitar sounds. This song is super cheesy, but in a good way (like an anime intro). Interesting change around 2:00. I like that you've managed to integrate real instruments and vocals in with some more 8-bitty synth sounds and have it sound consistent and good -- the guitar vs synth solo was 5/5.

The big problem I have with this piece s the vocals, or maybe the autotune on the vocals. Initially, it felt almost deliberate and fitting with the style, but the more it went on the more I disliked it. It's almost too small an amount to feel like a deliberate effect, but too much if it's not actually meant to be heard. You are pretty competent so I'm guessing it was deliberate, but my opinion would be to crank the hell outta that pitch corrector if you want it to be heard at all, otherwise make it more subtle with melodyne.

Anyway, great work!! :)

ConnorGrail responds:

Thanks! Yep the vocals were definitely on purpose, wanted him to sound like a cyborg. Mostly I just thought it sounded cool (which is why it was a common occurrence throughout the EP), but thanks for the good feedback Gorilla friend
