this is just so good. i was surprised that i wasn't against you last round. justice for ghostlawyer.

GhostLawyer responds:

Hahaha thank you so much man

I like the dreamy guitar and reverb at the beginning. Great job with the atmosphere and progression here. The sub-bass was a great touch, too. One thing I would’ve liked to see more of is emphasis on the melodic content. You have this great piano melody at around 1:20, but it’s a little hard to track because it sits behind the guitars in the mix. I also think you really could’ve fleshed out the structure more here. Overall, killer mood and atmosphere, but the composition could use a bit more effort. Regardless, you’ll be happy to know that this piece was my 500th favorited audio submission on the site. Keep it up, GhostLawyer! ;)

8.5/10

Super smooth and creamy, i love it|
Excellent job!

great.

outstanding instrumentation and production quality.

GhostLawyer responds:

Thank you dude!

woulda liked a less dark piano sound (maybe a rhodes for that smooooooth tone?)
there are some points where there's like one too many melodies playing at once (e.g. ~0m49s)
also woulda been good to pull back on the drums and go with some smoother, softer percs @ 0m59 until 1m17 when that piano melody comes back in, just to carve some more overall dynamics in and emphasize the differences between the sections.

overall this track is dope and makes me feel *good*, perfect length too. solid.

GhostLawyer responds:

Thanks man! Fair points, especially about the flurry of melodies during the main sections. A notorious problem of mine.
