It has been awhile since I made a some tracks. I was stuck at 26 tracks, most of them not very good, some relatively great. Now I have 29 and I am post my 3 most recent tracks. Please enjoy meh tasteh muzics! But seriously, please leave some feedback, I really need it to improve.

you have to make each song have a personal touch, these sound like what fills the newground portal. you need to make things unique, try things no one would, make it different from everything else.

Caves of Euphoria starts with this bleep that I really, really don't like, already for it's melody. It sounds too over the place, there's nothing that ties it together. The... bashing percussives are pretty styleless, there's not much to them either and also put a compressor on them, they distort when the bass first comes in. The bass gets pretty cool in the break, but the drums don't go along with that, they're just not dynamic at all. Same goes for the lead which is very generic and not really interesting.

Galactic Shore's intro kind of catches attention. But then again, the drums sound so... boring. I don't know, try playing with effects there, try some compressors on them, all that to make them develop a somewhat more catchy sound. The lead melody sounds kind of strange, the second note of each uprise should be a little higher as far as I can tell. Like a whole tone higher or something. The square lead could be a little more in the background. The bass could also have some effects on it.

The intro to Blue Winter sounds could, but really generic. The gate then is... generic, just generic, too. I COULD like the arping melody you get in there if it wasn't so strange as far as the tune's concerned.

Like Vervanda said, you'll need something to make your music unique and interesting to listen to. But keep going, you're on the way.

I'll just omit the Teardrops remix because it sounds like you just took the original track, added your own (pretty bad) drums and pads to it and called it a day.

Schall, I think the comments on the originals were fair, and I will try my hardest to work on those areas. But I would like to assure you that not a sing part of that track was from the original, I added a chorus sound, bells, a sitar like synth, sped the piano part up. If you think it didn't sound good, fine, but don't say that it sounds exactly like the house theme. And BTW, I didn't mean it was a remix of the actual song, just the version they use for house.
