(Making notes as I'm listening through them)

Battle - This piece is a very fitting battle theme for a happier themed game. The violin is playing the melody at the start and I think that a stronger instrument (trumpet maybe) could be more appropriate as it starts off the battle strongly. The brass lead for the rest of the piece seems to work much better. Good stuff!

Forest of Nevaeh - Solid introductory section. You've got a very catchy lead and accompaniment in the first section, which is already stuck in my head. The piece becomes noticeably weaker in the section where the melody is in the bass and there are chords in the right hand. Even something as simple as using broken chords instead or maybe adding a counter melody could instantly help the texture be more interesting.

Forest of Natas - Another great introduction. The vocals are slightly out of tune and it is offputting, although it's not your fault it is just the soundfont you are using. I like the trumpet pattern that comes in soon after the introduction. The sudden switch back to just vocals and strings after that is a little sudden and feels empty as the trumpet part isn't there anymore. I think that adding some healthy reverb and some other slight tweaks could completely take this piece from good to fantastic.

Frozen Peak - This piece reminds me of my own snow level piece - not just trying to make you listen to it, it does! This is the best one by far. Great repeating melodic pattern and appropriate use of instrumentation to give that nice snowy feel. You've written a lovely clarinet melody and effective vocal parts too. The high vocal part that leads into the repeat is brilliant, it perfectly builds up to when it drops off and returns to the start as it loops!

Overall, brillaint stuff :D I look forward to hearing some of your music in 2017!

To be honest, I didn't understand half of the things you said. I kind of get the gist, but not completely. Also, about Frozen Peak, I think it's just that people have a general sense of what a snowy place should feel like. I made it before joining NSM and I just listened to your song for the first time. Don't get me wrong, I'm not accusing you of accusing me of stealing your song. I like it, but I never steal ideas. Especially when it comes to music. So basically, maybe you could be a bit more descriptive about what you think I should do to the songs because I do feel they're a bit lacking and I would love some constructive criticism.

It is edited below. Should be understandable now XD I wasn't accusing anything earlier, I was just pointing out that they sound similar. No hard feelings, man :)

I didn't think you were accusing me. I really liked your snow song, by the way. Also, I'm glad you like the part before the repeat. I myself thought it wasn't very good, and I noticed that what I did there was something I seemed to do a lot in my earlier compositions. I have a lot, but only a few are good. They're also not musescore files, so I would have to input them into musescore from scratch, which is a bit tedious. I'll see what I can do about the other songs. You have given me some pretty nice ideas. I'm just glad that someone not only listens to my stuff, but also cares enough about it to give some advice. I seem to be very choppy going from subject to subject. Sorry if it's a bit confusing to understand what I say.

Forgot to mention, I really like your 34-second fanfare. Also, the links are updated with my changes, I'm just going to make them look nicer in a minute.

That was quick! And very well done as well. I love the extra part you've added to the forest of natas which makes it flow really well. As for Nevaeh the counter melody is very fitting and keeps it moving. Plus the trumpet melody in the battle theme seems to work too.

Pretty much everything is sorted so I can't say much else! Good job :D

Cheers, bud. Bit of a silly one ;)

By the way, I use the default soundfont for musescore, so the voice just normally sounds like that. I do like the changes, thanks for helping. Actually, I have a couple more songs on my youtube channel. I will add them here soon. Also, it wasn't that hard to fix them. In fact, I finished a little while before I updated them in dropbox.

The two songs that aren't from After are two of my first compositions. I'm very proud of them. The Item Get theme was composed by my cousin and composing isn't her strong point, so be a bit nice on that one. As for everything else, constructive criticism is extremely appreciated.

One of my first songs (that sounded horrible, mind you). I have instrumentized it (and also slightly changed the bass from the original) and made it actually sound good. It's kind of like a Yoshi's Island Map kind of deal, except slower-paced. By that I mean, it adds more parts as you progress through the world. Without further ado, here it is!

EDIT: Forgot to mention that it's a calm beach world. Kind of obvious, but worth stating, anyway.

I really like this one up to when the jazz guitar joins. It's catchy and quirky. Cool guitar chords too. The melody feels swung but then you start throwing in straight quavers in the jazz guitar and it is a bit distressing. Is it supposed to be swung or not? Making it all swung should remove the problem to some degree I think...?

Just listened to all your music and I just want to say that you're doing great! The music is fun to listen to, and they all seem to be feel good songs, which is always a nice thing. Keep it up, I look forward to hearing more! :D

@Andy: The swung against the stright is intentional. The only time when it sounds wierd to me is when the drums join onward. I would fix it, but every part was made a specific way that means I can't change them without losing what they are meant to be.

@Cash: Thanks! There was one pretty dark song. I might try to make more downbeat songs, but I definitely won't stop making upbeat ones.
