Msl is a young kid hitting up the music making scene, busting out electronic pieces and of late he has been venturing out of his genre and really testing himself.  this track, entitled a "revering site" is apptly titled.  I really felt like i was seeing a revered sight when listening to this piece.

This piece has very lush sounding pads.  knowing msl decently well, i know that he uses fruity loops.  to get this top quality sound is always a challenge in fl studio, as i know from first hand knowledge.  a lot of times you have to really overproduce to remove the fl vibe.  msl does this well. 

i am most impressed with his ability to explore out of his genre.  something i wouldnt be able to do to well.  id be too tempted to throw a fat beat on everything.  he has stayed very poised and stuck to the plan.  and i mean this when i say this could work in any movie title, with the exception of the last few chords which have a slight cheesball progression.  and when i say last few chords i mean specifically the last two.  this is nit picking.  prior to these notes we have a near perfect song.  i really like the song structure here.  yea its short, but thats to be expected from someone jumping out of genre.  i really enjoyed myself on this piece.  listened to it 20 times it seems like during this review, and not losing any interest.  maybe the shortness is mastery in disguise.

msl great job, im impressed and i can picture this doing fairly well in the competition.   I had to rate before typing, but overall i would give this track a 9 out of 10 when comparing to unsigned artists.  when comparing to the heavy hitters of this genre (the ones who make hundreds of thousands of dollars) i would say it would fit right in and score it a 7 out of 10 (which i consider an average professional sounding track).
