The composition is beautiful and heartwarming. The climax was executed perfectly. I love the piano outro.

JessieYun responds:

Hey Everratic,
Thank you very much for the comment, I'm so glad you enjoyed it overall <3

I like the sound design a lot. It feels gritty, which helps me envision a story about people try to escape from a futuristic underground laboratory guarded by robots with lethal laser weapons. I think I sense several production flaws that are somewhat masked by the strong compression; it feels like things that are actually separated have been hastily glued together - not everything seems to fit comfortably in the mix. Sometimes the panning feels unbalanced, with the perceived volume being louder on one side than the other. I don't have much else to say because this genre isn't my area of expertise. I enjoyed it and think this is a clear improvement from your previous submissions in the contest :)

I really like the sound design!

Tomhson responds:

Thank you very much!

Besides a few blatant mixing errors, I think this is a beautiful, well-executed track that evokes a lot of emotion. In the future, you might want to avoid saying that your submission was rushed or is incomplete; it caused me go in with low expectations, but fortunately, it's good enough that I disregarded this comment by the end :)

This was very relaxing! I could listen to this on loop for hours while doing work.

I didn't notice the length until johnfn pointed it out. That makes the song even more impressive xD

Phonometrologist responds:

Was it intentional? I cannot say that I do not disagree.

This is amazing :O

Zoonotist responds:

Thank you for stopping by, and thanks for your review! :)

This is phenomenal in so many ways. I think the best feature of the song is its liveliness. You managed to keep me enthralled by your work for over 7 minutes, and I was actually sad when it ended.

I don't have any significant criticism. I actually like that there doesn't seem to be a unifying theme or melody, and there is even some messiness (or lack of focus) in individual sections; I think this feature contributes to the liveliness of the track that I adore so much. With that said, I think it might be slightly too messy at times - there were a few elements that I thought failed to add value, and they barely fit in the mix. I didn't really mind it though, and I think most listeners won't even notice.

I give this a 10/10.

VociferousMusic responds:

Thanks for the neat words, I'm glad you liked it!
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by messiness in terms of lack of focus. But since you are referring to the liveliness, I might assume that you meant that some instruments played a bit off-beat sometimes. That definitely has been done on intention to make it sound more real and organic. In the busier sections I reduced that to a minimum though.

I think I get what you mean by the last point. I must admit I do own VSTs that are worse on quality than others, which caused a slighty noticable difference between them in the mix. But I'm more than glad I actually had access to so many instruments at the end. At some point I prefered to have a certain instrument in instead of renouncing it. I felt like some instruments are really important to be added, to grant the certain flair to the piece. I'm glad you still enjoyed it that way and that gives me the feeling that I made the right decision about that. :)

This is beautiful! :D The melody is so uplifting. The buildups and release of tension felt too textbooky for my taste, but it was still done effectively.

AceMantra responds:

Hey, thanks! I'll see what I can do about making future compositions feel less "textbooky" :P

I never laughed so hard from listening to a song before! I don't think I'll ever forget this one. I love the cute xylophone countermelody, and the banjo comment is gold. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite entry from the ones I heard so far.

LunacyEcho responds:

Oh man, that's high praise! Thanks for listening and glad you liked the bit about the banjo haha
