At Audiotuts+ we irregularly put up a reader track for workshopping and critique (find out how to submit a track). This is how it works: you upload your song, and every week or so we'll publish one here and step away from the podium. The floor is yours to talk about the track and how the artist can fix problems in and improve upon the mix and the song.
This track has been submitted for your friendly, constructive criticism. They have put their track (and their heart and soul) in your hands to learn and get useful feedback.
- Do you enjoy the song or track itself? Does it have potential?
- Can the arrangement be improved?
- How did you find the mix? What would you do differently?
- What do you enjoy about the rhythm track? What can be done to improve it?
- Is the choice of instruments relevant and effective for the style/song?
- Are the lyrics (if any) effective? Does the style, arrangement and genre of the song suit them?
- Can you suggest any specific techniques that might improve the track?
- Do you have any other constructive feedback?

Description of the track:
A trance song I composed as a gift for my girlfriend which is supposed to be a bonus track on my most-likely-never-to-be-released-album. With lenght of 5:37, this song has only one drop, but it is that more epic. Or I hope so. It starts with a DJ-friendly intro, then tries to dissapear into silence only to reveal that the best part is about to arrive. Taking its time the main melody rises after all only to leave after 32 bars being followed by a DJ-friendly outro. (Really?)
I spent quite some time in production and already heard it 155 times according to iTunes' play count. Now all I need to hear is what does an audience think about it, because maybe I am too excited about it. Only two people have heard it so far - both of them being surprised how nice it is.
Any objective criticism welcomed. (Probably requested.) Thanks in advance!
