Very nice, you really nailed those time signatures without making it looked forced and the outcome was a song I really enjoyed, Im sorry I cannot give you stars, since I am not privilidged to do so, but overall I'd give you 4/5.

Cool solos, and I loved your chorus.
Also nice use of MIDI. =)
Actually, I didn't like the main riff and groove parts, they sounded too much... ermmm... crazy.
But still that's gerat.
I'd give 4/5.

This is one of the best complex compositions I've heard in a long time. There is nothing I didn't like. The mix was excellent; the instrument choices superb. Loved the main riff. Chorus was great. Meticulous attention to detail. It kept my attention throughout and right to the end. It was so good it gave me goosebumps. This is a professional piece. A good skeleton made it all possible. Congrats

This was a hell of a composition !
I'm not into the heavy-death-trash-blastbeat drumming stuff, it usually gives me headache, but this one was really well written.
All transitions were really fluid, the mix was perfect, I loved your infectious groove and sax/clarinet solos, the main riff was amazing, I fell in love with your synth leads. The ending was really nice.
Maybe sometimes there are too much cymbals but overall it's a great heavy-progressive composition.
congratulations !

5 stars

Hyperactive Depression - |_JR_|

I'll through this section-by-section.

Rhodes Intro
You love your fade-ins, don't you? Intro is typical JR.

Main Riff & Verse 1
I think it was more the time sigs than anything that made me feel a little unsure. It certainly was rather busy as well, though. It was nice to settle down into the first verse, with a relatively low-key yet nice solo.

Chorus & lead
I just found this to be just a *little* underwhelming. Lead spiced it up nicely, though.

Guitar Solo
This was nice - not TOO much technicality, so it felt just right.

Main Riff Variation
... Which is a little lead from the synths - fine variation.

Chipmunk Invasion
This felt like insanity - that was a nice job done on the crossfade at the end of that section.

Verse 2
Similar to Verse 1, not much else I can say... yet another nice solo.

Intro glimpse
This section I had REAL trouble with writing - looks like you had the opposite. Doesn't feel forced at all, unlike mine :P

Getting Into The Jam
Start was good - although the combination of the lead guitar and sax was just a little too much at parts - got a little muddy.

Infectious Groove
Weird as hell progression - works, though.

Sax & Clarinet Solos
Was well done, but there was nothing I could really remember from it...
Love the clarinet solo, that was a good one.
166 was trippy.

Heavy Riff I
Nice adaptation - fitted well.

Honky Tonk Solo
Found the honky tonk a little odd - slides?? Not sure how you would replicate that in real life, but meh :P. It sounded awesome, nonetheless.

Heavy Riff 2
Again, another nice riff. I don't have a head for riffs, so I'm afraid I don't have much to say... :P

Slow Solo & Outro
Solo was pleasant enough, but nothing like the outro. Beautiful.

So, you certainly managed to keep the flow amazingly well - I didn't think it was possible, with a skeleton that contained a clarinet/sax solo, a chipmunk invasion, and heavy riffage... XD
Only negatives, like I've mentioned, are things like the busyness in the Main Riff and the Jam and the relatively lackluster chorus (just nitpicking here, don't worry). I think it's clear that you're a very accomplished composer ;)

4.5 stars

Alright, starting out with your intro, very sexy.

First riff is quite great, after a while the way of filling odd measures with scale runs and fills could tire me a bit though

First solo and backing/riffing was excellent, no qualms there. Nice chord progression/bass line afterwards for the chorus - Feels a bit unfocused, too many notes and tones to really stick onto it.

Nice saxophone parts with the guitar solo, and lol @ calling me solos a bit shreddy =P. Still, great stuff.

Clean stuff on top of Main variation is just too much man, just adds a layer of confusion

Chipmunk Invasion sounded like getting sucked into a momentary epilepsy, but that was... interesting.

At a certain point in the song the fade in notes everywhere starting dragging down the main melodies and the main ideas with distractive noise, careful with abusing that.

Nice start off into the jam, but then with the multiple guitar lines, the bass, the leads and all, it drove my mind nuts and just became very very muddled up.

Infectious groove seemed to fit the name very well, and the solo added on top was very cool, I really liked the muddle, yet interesting switch in feeling the bass did halfway.

The ending was very funny, but even then, seemed funny out of place, like it wasn't the best way to bring that riff back.

The guitar solo/synth stuff was really good, I feel the rest of the orchestration just killed it though, too much stuff distracting overall.

The transition at 191, as iffy as it was, was kinda good, so that's a neutral comment. Could have been better.

Chorus, for a chorus, still doesn't have enough of a discernible... catchiness to it, nothing to keep you interested. It all seems to clash oddly with itself.

Fade out... works. Kind of normally and melancholy, for such a hyperactive, busy song though.

Overall - 3 stars. Too much stuff in there that needn't be included throughout the riffs.

JR - Hyperactive Depression

MMMMMMMM!!!! I really didn't like the rhodes intro.... but that's the only part I didn't like cause everything is absolutely amazing.

- Main Riff = awesome, well managed time signatures + an incredible sawtooth lead
- Verse I = great, gives some space to rest right after the upset main riff, cool leads, good work with bars 42 & 43, excelent trasition to
- Chorus I = completely epic, I loved the chord progression & the lead was cool
- Guitar Solo = oh man damn cool, excelent solo, but not the best one. Good transition back to main riff btw.
- Main Riff & Variation = Excelent, great job. The transition to chipmunk was great though I didn't like that much that part.
- Chipmunk Invasion = not my favorite
- Verse II = same thing that the first verse
- Chorus II = great & the intro glimpses were cool... the rhythmic modulation by the end of this section was cool too, you can actually notice how the beat changes but it still flows, and that's great
- Getting into the Jam = win, my favorite part of the song, nice percussives and leads
- Infectious Groove, Solos & variations = nice section, the sax solo is probably the best solo in this song and in the whole competition entries IMO, I really enjoyed bar 155. Clarinet solo was ok, the Yankee Doodle quote was very funny, completely enjoyable =). Heavy Riff I was ok, nice variation of Infectious Groove and the Honky-tonk piano solo was cool too.
- Heavy Riff II = I wouldn't say that it's not a traditional riff, it's just syncopated but it sounds god-damned awesome, transition to main riff was freakin' awesome.
- Slow Solo & Outro = good stuff, nice solo and great outro...

Well as you can see I really liked this song, orchestration was overall ok, same thing with mixing. Melodies were awesome most of the times, there was a lot of soloing, too much IMO but anyway, the song is great and I have nothing else to say that Congratulations

Rate: 5.0 Stars, completely deserved

Pure fkken win. Very pretty, melodic, focused, flowing... just perfect. I can't find a single bad thing about it... I could compliment everything about it, from the intelligent shred in the first solo to the sly little rhodes fades effects (master and harnesser of midi, thou ist) to the way you effortlessly fill even the most bizarro time signature traps to the fantastic jam session and melodies to... you get the picture. My hat off to you. Just a little note – infectious groove reeks hugo, iono why. And the soft solo and outro make my eyes moist. Congratulations. You have managed to fully mature, taking the gifted but somewhat too wank-inspired JR of old to great heights.

Rating: 5 stars. You deserve it.
