"...this is a pretty grey area as to whether I think this would be considered decent or not..."
I don't think that this is decent :/
I think it's frickin' brilliant!!!
How did you even manage to pull this off, with all the mixing? You're insane, dude. I love everything from the intrumentation, the effects, the progressions, the percussion, and the melodies to the overall atmosphere. Also, you did a good job tweaking those choirs.
The ending works well too.
This if anything, could work well in a movie or a game. The production quality is quite amazing.
I can't even fathom the work it must've taken to make this.
I really don't have much to say. This is simply too good. Your group better watch out, because I think you have a good chance of making it to the next round with this.
Awesome job, dude!! And of course, good luck ;)
