Very good.
Clean voices, nice melody and rhytm. A good composition.

My Feedback

Music - 7.5
Instruments - 9
Performance - 9.5
Mix - 9

Overall - 8.75

Comments: Right away, IMO, drums could use a little more punch. That's just a preference thing though. Nothing really "wrong" with them as is but I'd like a little more oomph. Possibly a db or two louder would do it. Maybe a tad more low end. Rest of mix is fine. Interesting melody. Would like a change from the same chord progression throughout. Don't really hear a variation until about 2:30 in. Musically seems "safe." I'd like to hear you take more chances with this piece as I hear a lot of potential in it. All this of course just my pretty worthless opinion so take it all with a grain of salt.

Thanks Saffran.
Thanks wagtunes, I never think your opinion is worthless. There's always something in the feedback that I can take away and learn from. I think I boxed myself into a corner on this one and couldn't see a way out, which may explain why it seems musically safe. I was just glad that I could get this to a stage I could call finished, although nothing ever is.

I thought it was good. It sounds like smooth, laid back EDM with low key rhythm. I could image it being used for a video or movie ending/credits or just for listening.
