Damn good concept you got here man, really like it. Orchestral hip-hop always kicks ass.
-Loved that clap. Fit the song perfectly.
-Nice background strings.
-Nice echoing cymbal crash effect.
-Soloing string part hat started around 1:10 I feel like could've been a lot better. I mean, maybe you were trying to make it sound staccato, but I feel like it would sound a lot better if the notes transitioned in a bit more legato-like fashion to get that really sad yet ominous feel.
-Song is begging for choir which I know you're gonna add, but make sure it actually sounds good, bad choir just makes the song sound worse so yeah.
-Yeah, more orchestra is needed as well. Which you're also adding anyway.
-Kick is pretty damn cool and unique, but I dunno, I feel like it hits TOO deep. But pretty easy to overlook.
-Parts with the soloing string instrument and the piano in the background, I dunno, I feel like some notes are clashing here and there, but again, easy to overlook, just sounds weird every now and than.
-Piano sounded fine. Although I would've like it to be more echo-ey and a bit louder, like with more reverb or something like that.
-Cool finger effects but I thought it was kind unnecessary, but whatever.
-Same with the weird woodblock sound that started around 2:21, kind of unnecessary. I feel like this song would sound fine with some sad piano, full orchestra, choir, bad ass beat and clap, and that's about it.
Well yeah, great job man, lookin' forward to the full version, 5/5, peace.
