There could be several reasons for keeping my big mouth shut.
0 - It's just tooooo awful and I don't want to offend people.
1 - It's good and complete. Then I just enjoy listening to it.
X - It's grey and mediocre, just following some virtual standards how it should be. It says nothing, so no answer.

You push me, so I will increase the critical level.
I played it again, and after that, to get a more complete picture, also Solid Gold and NoMore.
First thing is the quite fixed setting of the voice-instrument throughout the songs. I've heard it in others too.
The same happens inside a song as well. Once a setting is chosen, it stays so. Especially in the more basic elements of the background, like percussion. Quite a lot of duplicated patterns it seems, no small changes or small additions.

Not necessarily.. I noticed some absence of varieties, but if you want it that way, fine by me. Repetition of channels or patterns is easily done in a module. As long as it is a conscious choice in the piece to plainly repeat a (set of) channel(s) in the next patterns, to get a certain impact in the composition, ok. Just copy/paste because the song has to go on, is another thing.
So it was a comment, not so much an advice. More from that second region :

Don't pin yourself too strongly on the idea of making the 'final' piece of composition. With modules there isn't really. You make a piece, listen to it a week later, in a different mood, and you think : - Hmm, this should be played a little bit faster..
Or some instrument seems to be a bit too dominant. Lowering its global volume a bit ?
It can be much easier to handle, by considering some modifications of a piece, as a 'version' instead of the final one after the final one before.
Is a composition really a different one, if one decides to loop pattern 36 8 times instead of 4 times ?
So if you decide to add those tiny variations, be careful to throw away the old one. Better name "Weak_Inside_2" or like that.
