Good thing you joined the NGADM..

...because you're having to pump out a song every two weeks which means more awesome songs for me to download. But jokes aside, this is another brilliant track. A bit more trippy than your usual submissions, but still as enjoyable as ever.

I'll start with the composition and atmosphere. As usual, you've nailed them flawlessly. The melodies were memorable and quirky, especially that high sine-like synth which played a very catchy melody (and the new melody at 2:09 which was introduced very well). The melodies were all very unique and pleasing to the ears, as is the background accompaniment such as the drums and the ambiance. The guitar melodies were especially nice, and the whole song had a trippy feeling to it. I mean I could've sworn I saw my mouse slowly floating upwards as I was listening to the song, but that might have to do with me waking up at 1:00 PM today... BUT I DIGRESS.

I have one complaint over here, and that's the fact that the song has two different atmospheres, as weird as that sounds. One is spacey and has a certain amount of tension to it with that distorted sound and FX, while the other is a funky, rhythmic atmosphere with drums, guitar and catchy melodies. This clash of atmospheres was pretty noticeable in a few of your other songs, such as 'Let's Get Meditational' but it's even more apparent over here and didn't work out as much in my opinion. While most of the transitions from funky to spacey and vice versa were made very well, I think that these two atmosphere were too different to be in the same song. Maybe you can add some guitar melodies or drum beats in the spacey parts to fit them in the song a bit more while still keeping a trippy feel in some parts of the song.

One thing that particularly impressed me would be the transitions. You had a number of drum fills and quirky effects to move from one section of the song to another. The subtle entrance of the drums at the beginning, the drum fill at 1:24, the transition to the rhythmic part at 2:06... they're all great transitions. Maybe the transition at 1:45 was a bit too abrupt, but other than that you've got some really good transitions which definitely help the song's structure.

What probably got me the most would be the astounding amount of detail you put into this submission. I'm hearing all sorts of effects in the background, and despite the fact that they sound pretty weird, they still fit perfectly in the song. The background is full of detail and variety and even though you had a good number of things playing at the same time, you still didn't fill the mix with all of those sounds making it sound cluttered. Everything from the variety of sounds and melodies to the occasional small details such as the slightly off-tune note at 2:26 and the sound effects towards the end of the song all worked out flawlessly. So yes, production-wise, there's nothing I can complain about.

I'll talk about the instrumentation and percussion now, and naturally they were incredibly well-done as usual. All of the sounds you used fit very well, especially the piano and the trippy-sounding guitar. The frequent pitch sliding on the high synth was a nice touch, adding to the very trippy feeling of the song. The drums had a brilliant beat and plenty of variety. Not only that, but it fit perfectly in the song. At some times the full beat was playing, at other times only hat lines were playing, and at other times only the kick/snare pattern was playing. While, like I already said, I think that adding a beat to the spacey parts might make them fit in a bit more, the drums were used perfectly and fit with the song. Not only that, but the samples you used were awesome, especially that snare.

Cheesy overall paragraph time. So overall, this song is extremely enjoyable. The production/mixing, all the different sounds and the trippy atmosphere definitely gave this a unique touch among the dance/trance you see all over Newgrounds nowadays.
