This song holds a special place in my heart and not because of the infamous Nanatsu no Taizai one xD I really can't take the association we made 4 or 5 years ago with Gurren-Lagann out of my mind, to me this song is almost like an opening for TTGL.
So as for "The Pretender", I really disliked your association xD
Your editing otherwise is really nice, I liked your compositions more than usual, you kept them simple and to me it worked. And I wasn't really bothered by the CC and RGB that everyone seems to blame you for. But things like 2:04 seemed a bit out of place, the masks doesn't really fit with the situation I guess, we can really tell it apart from the background.
And last but not least, 2:40 could have been a nice touch but it really didn't work imo, perhaps because it's in the middle of the chorus or the sentence I don't know, I'm not too familiar with it so I can't really give advice but at least I found this wrong xD
I know you're trying your best not to be too mad so I respect that XD you already know I would have placed you a bit higher as well haha Don't give up Chriss
