Hmm, I knew a song like this would make it to the top 5. Arpeggiated trance....obviously most people like it on here, however it is so over used thus unoriginal. Not that hard to make with a arpeggiator. However, its near christmas so I'm more in a happy mood today. I won't be harsh on the arpeggios.
Around 30 seconds I'm not a fan off. Your lead is copying what the bass is doing on every upbeat. The only difference is that your lead is actually changing notes. This is your typical electronic dance stuff here. Again, not very original.
Off topic...cool, I just noticed what NG did with the video player. Extra features = better.
1:50 okay something different here. Great job on those digital sounds. However, the pattern used does not get me all excited. You need to stop using that boring bass on every upbeat. Come up with something other than quarter notes and 1/8 notes.
Okay, sure a long ending. That's just your style. I like to finish a song with a climax...just me so not taking any marks off for your long ending.
Overall, your song screams unoriginal. Yes, arpeggios sound cool, the upbeat dance bass pattern can get people feeling the vibes, but in the end its all been done before. Generally, I don't mind the bass on the upbeat because that's the bread and butter in dance music, but your lead is essentially copying what the bass is doing. It needs to play something different so I don't get distracted from the repetitiveness.
However, I give you kudos for making the digital instrument sound good. Just need to make some more unique patterns rather than it just playing arpeggios again.
5/5 and 9/10 review. Have a great christmas holidays
Bye for now
