---=== NGADM Round 1 Review ===---
Firstly, anyone asking for something to be louder needs to stop being lazy and just turn up their volume. I'd much rather turn it up than down as turning it up means the track likely has more dynamics. You can happily ignore those comments from others, stuff on NG is way too loud already. /rant
This was a somewhat peaceful walk in a garden, enjoyable and pretty. It kept my interest throughout and gave me food for thought.
Maybe at times the balance of instruments/mixing could have been better as I feel the instruments with a stronger attack stand out too much against the background which explains the "somewhat" since they broke my immersion. I loved the warmth of it and the simplicity which was underpined by the eb and flow of the strings and flutes. You knew when to take a step back and when to bring it up again.
I feel maybe that the louder section at the end didn't quite reach the place I wanted it to until the second half but that made the build up anticlimactic for me. The second half would have been my first half and I would have built that even higher for a 2nd part. Having said that, the flute at the end and the ending itself were stunning. Fantastic melodies here (and throughout actually).
Scores are weighted so that comp and prod are 75% of the score:
Enjoyment, atmosphere, replay and all the other odd stuff: 9
Thank you for that moment of peace! I shall be downloading and keeping this for later.
