= THIS IS AN OFFICIAL NGADM REVIEW =
This is based on my own NGADM scoreboard alongside with first impression when I first clicked on your track, which is very important for your new listeners who will listen to your future tracks. For the review, I listened to your track twice to pinpoint a bit more, the scores(points) are from listening only once. Take this review as a grain of salt, please don't take this personally. I don't want to tore anyone down, I want them to become stronger. The judges have different views on your same track, so just take it as another point of view.
The intro was nice, felt I was dragging myself into your track. I really liked your bell-like synths there, that really spiced up your track. Using those epic hits was a nice choice, too, gives you kinda anthem-vibe. Although, it sounded a bit robotic there, so that was quite a shame. The worst thing that I could point out instrumentally was the guitar, it sounds too sharp and ear-piercing, which was uncomfortable for me. I was hoping for quite a smoother instrument than that (at least, less sharpen your guitar sound), And I had to lower a volume a LOT when the guitar came in. The waveform looks fine, but I think the dynamic is too vast. I liked that duck effect section, the sidechain was deeply cut, but it got really confusing when 1:47, the drums got a bit faster than your sidechain which feels off-beat. I liked the part after that.
The chord progressions were pretty solid, and I could hear the melody, but it wasn't really memorable in my opinion, and it sounded a bit generic track (especially the duck part) but you used your instruments well. Emotionally, those bells soothed me quite nicely, so that was good.
Theme (How engaging is the melody?) 7/10
