    This one has been in the works for a good 2-3 months now, one of my best but not so heavy. Enjoy and what not.

    That was brilliant, a very solid and straightforward beat, and a nice melody, it didn't bore me at all.
    God, I wish that we could do a joint piece of music....*big nudge*

    That was wicked. I am usually a fan of your songs, but some of your songs are a bit boring at parts. This, however, never bored me the entire way through.

    I'm not a fan of the snare sound, it's the exact same sample throughout. Even worse, it's electronic D: But that's just my opinion.

    A lot of times in the song, the bass sounded off-key. Scales and chords are a lot more important than they seem, refer to them more often, and stick to them as much as possible. Don't limit yourself to them, obviously. The lead was better, it broke up the mass of low-end bass sound nicely.

    The first big build-up was anti-climactic; I was expecting a lot more to happen, but then it levels off and keeps playing the same old thing. The second build-up was a bit better, but not much. What came after didn't really warrant the build-up.

    I felt you could have been a bit more creative with the outro, rather than doing a THIRD build-up. Although the effect of the third build-up was a lot better than the other 2; sometimes complete silence or muting most of the instruments after a build can be more impressive than suddenly opening up a wall of sound.

    Sorry I don't have anything nice to say lol. Well, apart from the lead.
