My Feedback

Music - 5
Instruments - 7
Performance - 6
Mix - 8

Overall - 6.5

Comments: Drums too in the face for my taste but this is probably a genre thing? Audio at times sounds like a record skipping. I'm assuming this is intentional. Anyway, waiting for some kind of melody or anything but it's starting to sound like just a loop played over and over. Isn't until about 2:46 when I hear a modulation in key. I will say this much, the recording is clean. Other than that, doesn't do much for me musically at all. And then the sudden end cutoff like you just stopped the DAW? And then I look and see the tons of comments this track has gotten and all the raves.

Maybe I really am just too old for today's music because I don't get this at all. If I had done this track and posted it here, I'd expect it to be torn to shreds and rightfully so.

So okay folks, what is it that I'm not getting here because obviously I'm not getting it if this track is getting so many comments and raves.

It does sounds looped. There should be some melodies in this to keep it interesting. It just feels wrong with the stops and starts of the loops. The change at 2:46 was welcome, but it doesn't change my overall opinion that you need to go back and add some melodic flavor to it and make it sound less obvious that you are using loops. Also, it should fade out at the end. The sudden stop bothers me.

@00:39 such an obvious start of a loop. then again throughout the track. very sloppy looping
