liked melodic drops here

Neat c:

The intro was really great, but it didn't really build enough tension. Even in full orchestral parts, it's okay to use electronic risers and subs. 4.5/5

The first drop felt a bit boring, and imo the lead completely failed the rest of the soundscape. 3/5

The build-up to the second drop was about as good as the beginning, but 2:52-3:45 just felt really tedious and didn't build up enough for the time that was taken. If it had been left to a few phrases, it could have worked, but it just took too long for me. 4/5

I'm sorry, but the second drop just didn't work for me. The chordstacks were too small, the drums weren't mixed in quite right, and the sidechain is just a bit off. The collection of everything being a bit off was just too unsettling to me, but at least I can see that a lot of work went into it. So I give it a 3.5/5.

Overall, I feel like this is a pretty good song, but the majority of it is just too overworked, underworked, or tedious. Also, the leads in the drops don't fit in very well; the build-ups and tone of everything else implies a more ambient, reverby lead, but what you used felt jarring and out-of-place. Keep improving, though! With some more work in sound design and transitioning, I'm sure you could make much better music.

you are so right ;)

Nice track (second drop is better)

Maybe add a little more basses, but I like it! :D
