I wanted to get this song out quickly once i started on the drop, so i could submit it for the Newgrounds' Underdog Contest. I'm actually super proud of this one, and I love how the drop came out!

I like the furtive tone at the beginning. Piano sounds a bit inauthentic, but it fits in better once the synths come in at around :30. I like the generous use of hi-hats in the beat too. The progression is a little slow-paced, although the drop has a really cool tension about it, and the melody is nice too. I think you overuse the crash that appears at 2:00, 2:03, 2:07, etc., though. The mixing is solid - loud and clear, if perhaps a tad overcompressed. The sound design is another plus overall for me, and it has a great sense of flow. The eerie melodies are a huge highlight, and the subtle variations on the second drop were really nice, with a nice touch in the arpeggios at 4:12 during the final repeat. The arrangement is a tad generic, especially with the build-ups, but the variety helps. Solid work overall! Keep it up, Drak02. ^_^
