intro is great man. drums at the start could be more balanced (EQ or sample-wise. theyre too top heavy imo. the kick needs more bass and the snare needs more mid).
1:04. too much reverb/release. try making these sections super dry to contrast and make it stand out.
1:37. the repetition is kinda annoying tbh. try making it variated in either melody or percussion, or just add another layer.
section around 2:24 is great. the part after tho is just a repeat of earlier, you shouldve added more layers (or taken some away) or made it somehow more interesting.
i think 3:45 shouldve faded into the ending, honestly. and the part after, again, is a repeat.
overall, you tried really hard to make this super long, which made it less interesting. also in some parts mixing was a bit off. sorry if this doesnt make much sense or if it doesnt help very much
Thanks for the review. I don't know how apparent it is, but at 1:37 and in the third drop the percussion actually does change into a more hardcore style briefly. Honestly it doesn't really feel that repetitive to me, maybe it's just all those other random melody songs around that make it feel that way. I just kind of try to do it in a more traditional way, personally. I can't really pull off that random element the way other people can.
