I've spend ridiculous amount of time on this song and I am a bit worried because every time I spend a lot of time on a song I get obsessed and end up with a polish turd. It's one of the reasons I don't want to spend too much time on any song and why my best songs are some of the ones I spend least time. Part 3 was a giant polish turd so hopefully I didn't overdid it again.

Sounds very good actually! Nicely balanced and musically enjoyable. I would love a beatless outro, but other than that, no improvement points to give.

I would have preferred a warmer sound with the pads but it's ok would prefer a bit more cleaner sound.

what a good effort! I don't like the cliche lyrics, but otherwise it was a nice listen.

Normally I would keep the song a secret, but I don't have a proper listeners base so meh. Needed to know I can do better than the RS 100 disaster. This is the anthem of my Recharge Sessions (150) in less than 2 weeks. To this day Part 1 (RS50) is one of my own favourite songs, Part 2 needs a bit of work in the future and was never officially an anthem. Part 3 (RS 100) (we don't speak about Part 3). The rhythm of life sample was used in all 3 of them except part 2 (50/100/150), but this is turning out to become my favourite out of all 3.

I gave a little more power to the pads, originally I toned them down because they were overpowering everything including the lead arp. Made 2 bars of the intro without drums and various little fixes. I think I already listened the song 50-100 times and at this point it's quite edged into my brain and soul.

Also I had a bit of inspiration from @LostLegend, but with less energy. As always I can't bring energy into my songs.

Sounds pretty good. I like the drum breaks and the sound choices are pretty good overall.

If I were to nitpick, I’d say maybe a bit of variation on the drum patterns and maybe a drum fill in there to bring them in just to add a bit of interest.

The overall mixdown needs a bit of work to make all the elements blend together a bit better, but that will come with time and practice!

Nice work overall.
