Webothwin,
Thank you for the review! Now your song "Smack": danceable. Yes, you could work out to this. Sounds slightly menacing, which is fine by me. Drums could be louder, or have more punch; some compression could help. Some pretty cool synths. A little repetitive, though I suppose that works for workout music. What state or country are you from? The song has a European vibe for me.

Thank you for checking it out. I am in America and while it is already released your advise certainly helps me out a lot. Thank you for the feedback! I will seek critique before I release next time.

First two were very driven and powerful and had a certain appeal, but for me really crowded in the mid range. Being heavy in the mid range can be OK for short times here and there, but having 4 minutes of it can be fatiguing.
Sometimes "less is more".

all the tracks lack dynamic range, they are quite squashed, that IMO
is what makes a track "fatiging" combine that with instruments not taking turns (crowding) AND lots of repetition and it can force an early break from listening.
