This is an Official NGADM '18 Round 2 Review
Beginning Comments: Congratulations on making it to round 2
Production / Mixing: A little quiet, granted that's the point of this song. I had some issues that I don't think I can quite pick out. Nothing is lost in the mix but my ears aren't drawn to what's carrying the melody the most. I think my issue is that there may be too much reverb, or that it's a little too unfiltered. It's not muddy, but it’s not necessarily clear either I think. Regardless of that, this still sounds like a finished product.
Composition / Structure: Really captivating intro. There isn't much happening which makes it easier for the listen, but each lick of a melody or detail is overflowing with emotion. The structure has a nice development as well. The song did not feel like it was a 5 minute song. It kept my attention and lead through time without difficulty.
Sound Design: Oh the percussion is perfect. I like that they're slightly filtered too. I didn't think that would be a good fit but it works well. Personally, I'm not a fan of the vocals at the end, but they work within your theme that you have so I won't see fault with them. Wow you have a deep voice. It's so soothing. The instruments you use are a nice compliment to the sound effects you start off with. Everything has this organic feel too it that gives great imagery. As a listener I can imagine quite vividly the wet trees I'm trotting though, and I can tell that it's some point in the late evening / nightfall.
Ending Comments: Everything about this song was relaxing, but it held my attention too. There was a lot of emotion carried through even the silence of the composition. It made for vivid imagery and carried a good amount of emotion through it. Well done.
