This is an official Semi-Final track review for NGADM.
The one thing I really like about the song is that there's this... I don't know how to say it other than "spirit", that really makes it shine. To the friend that said this had no redeeming qualities and that it was made by someone illiterate in making music, I'm happy to say they're wrong. This sounds like a really good piece, and it has so much spirit that accompanies it that it gives me a warm, natural image as I listen.
On the other hand, there's a couple of things I'd like to point out: first, I feel the sustain/reverb of the guitar at the beginning, especially in the higher chords, was a little too long. The reason why I think that is because I can hear it sustaining into the other higher chords, when in reality a guitarist would need time to change fingerings. I think cutting off those treble chords a beat before the next one would be better. Second, the electric guitar sounds a little muddy, especially as it enters at around 2:03. Try to bring the attack time down a bit, or look for a more articulate electric guitar.
Overall, this is a really good entry, and not too shabby at all! Don't let people who give you that "critique" bring you down. Good luck in the final round of NGADM!
