Your stuff always sounds good on headphones, nicely mixed with all the track elements in their own space. You like to make smart use of reverb for that. I like the combination of the flanged synth with the pads, very dreamy.

Nice instrumental track. I liked orchestration and arrangement. Good mix and sounds

This is a very laid-back tune, so the composition goes a long way to expressing the sentiment contained in the title. The two panned EP sounds work well together with the pads to give the track a great sense of space. It makes for great listening on the monitors too.

Good work :)

I like the softer elements -- pads, piano, soft lead synth. The mix is excellent.

I wish you would have written a B section with the softer elements. Instead you added dancey drums and aggressive synths to the A section which counteract the relaxing mood. Oh well.

Well, that's rather nice. Organised chaos is the term that comes to mind :D
