The song is a bit repetetive regarding its lenght. The theme isn't bad though and the sound quality is good. Exept one thing, the bass keeps resonating at an unpleasant frequenzy over and over again (like 1:42, 2:12, etc.) throughout the whole song. It is probably pushed with an eq in that region and the applied automation/filter makes it jump out. I liked the drums very much, the beat is driving and interessting, with some subtle variations. There is some nice stuff going on in the background that really gives the song atmosphere.

So the drawn-out theme and the bass are what i would criticise the most. Besides that, great work!

great sounds and composition, but could benefit from a more dynamic, wider, immersive sound stage.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

I agree with all this, though...

It is quite a slow developer, if quite atmospheric. I think the melodic content is strong, but could be developed more as the piece progresses? Particularly that simple, striking piano motif in the second half...I can hear that being stretched out and widening out across more and more notes maybe?

Doesn't ruin the vibe, but it is slightly intrusive at times...agreed!
