I like the quirky atmosphere at the beginning and the gritty guitar riffs that come in shortly thereafter. The piece is a little slow to progress at first, but the hi-hat rolls at :35 are nice, and the drums, while a little loud and harsh-sounding when they first come in, have a nice punchiness and drive. The section at :58 is when the texture really starts coming together, although I think you could’ve done a bit more with the harmonic progression and melodic development of the piece at this point. The hi-hats at 1:48 sound a tad too harsh, although I like the grizzled minimalism of the next section. The transition at 2:19 is pretty sudden, but 2:19 has a smooth and reflective air about it, like the guy who burned the car is coming to terms with the consequences of his actions. The transition into 3:01 was just the right mix of smooth and sudden to fit the character of this piece, and I love the addition line of string harmonies that appears at 3:23. This piece comes together really well at the end, and the stoic outro was a nice touch. I would’ve liked to hear some more dynamic melodic content at some point in the piece, but you really won me over with the intensity, sound design, and atmosphere of this one. Keep up the good work, NugBrodown! ^_^

The bass drops into the bending guitar notes are a fantastic intro.

It progresses into more delicate territory afterwards and keeps going back and forth between states.
I really enjoyed that.

I'm loving the sound of the snare and its use.

And the crescendo and outro make for a great emotional wrap-up.

Really enjoyed this.
Good luck in the competition!

p.s. Oh right, only bit of constructive criticism would be that the bass drops sliiightly overpower the mix from time to time and some parallel compression would help you fix that. Cheers!

Tis sounds interesting. I like this dirty tone of guitar, but You need to work harder with recording. I can definately hear that guitar is out of tune.

Beginning of this track is awesome, but later in my opinion great idea gets to messy...
