Very simple concept with the video but really well executed, was a fun listen and viewing.

Ha! Nice bit of fun with the animation.
Tune comes over like it was being played by a group of young musicians that are fairly new to playing a a band - dunno if that was the intent.
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

I was thinking progressive garage band gone old Holly Wood music. The tune made me think of the theme from the Peter Gun tv series. It did work well with the animation style for a fun time.

Pretty clever!

This is an enjoyable track, but I'm even more fascinated by the video. It's a cool idea and you've executed it well. Alas, I do not have an Apple computer. It's too bad that Windows doesn't come with any software to Motion (as far as I know). Anyhow, great job!

Thank you. The video was something I came up with in one night. Often quick things often turn out well. All the best! :)

Wasn't the intent but we were trying something a bit different. Maybe that's the reason. :)

I've listened to this quite a few times, and I think it's got a lot of similarities to KC's Vrooom, but in a lighter style. There were a couple of drum riffs that sounded like Neil Peart from the Moving Pictures era. That alone make for a good set of Prog credentials, but add the timesig and key changes, and we have a full-on Prog classic, not forgetting the percussion section and the guitar solo. Good job with the video. One day all DAWs will be like that :wink:

Good work :)

You got a lot of mileage out of that riff -- unison, hocketing, and a bassline for the guitar to solo over. Clever although it will probably be stuck in my head for a while.

There were also other nice sections which provided a break before returning to the riff. Perhaps the drum break could have been shortened?

The minimal video was elegant and fit well with the music. Good stuff! :tu:

I felt the timing issues detracted from what you guys were trying to do. Tightening it up would make it a much better listen.
