Beautiful!
My kind of melodic stuff
Europa? Squiddy lil' critters blissfully unaware of the universe outside their ice shell?

Thanks for sharing the music

Liked it a lot.

Minor nitpicks and this is all just personal taste. Not at all suggesting that any of this is "wrong."

1. Would have liked kick to have more bottom end to it. Could barely hear it in places.

2. Would have liked a little more variation in the arrangement.

3. The ending came out of nowhere for me and made no sense with the rest of the song.

Again, just personal preferences.

Thank you Aleatoriac, only another 50+ moons to do :)

Thanks for the feedback wagtunes, minor nitpicks welcomed. I've uploaded a new mix with a more pronounced kick through the chorus parts where it is needed most.

this could have been on Alphaville's "Breath taking blue" album
the percussion, arps and melodies were the highlights for me.
the synth bass panned off center later on was a bit strange.
overall enjoyed :tu:

Thanks layzer. Had to nip on over to ye olde Youtube to check out that album, cool stuff. Will check out that synth bass just in case it got caught up in the automated panning.
