I like the dramatic flair this has. The drums are well done - definitely gives me a modern rock vibe. The cello sample was not my favorite, though. It’s pretty inauthentic, and the melody it was playing was a little too jumpy (as opposed to stepwise) and hard-to-follow. There are also a several jarring changes in the mood of the piece (:40, 1:07, etc.). I generally like the guitar parts a lot more than the string-heavy parts, likely because of the sample quality. The mix is certainly loud, but sometimes a couple of the string and piano lines get a little lost amidst the busy texture (3:53, for example). My main problem with the piece is that it’s extremely disjointed. I think you need to keep the listener grounded in some more structural repetition, or at the very least slow down the pacing so that the piece feels a little more flowing. Right now, the piece feels like a bunch of independent ideas that were thrown together, which is hard to pull off in my experience. Overall, there are a lot of good ideas here. There are a bunch of different sections (:40, 1:07, 3:48) that all sound like they would make great separate pieces, but the arrangement of the piece leaves me feeling a little overwhelmed with how variational the texture is. Otherwise, fun track and nice job doing the double-bingo. Keep at it, Nekro-Kitty!
