I like the atmosphere at the beginning. Some of the synths are a bit cheesy, notably the one at :22, and I also think the chord progression is a bit generic. That said, I enjoyed the build-up into :45 and the subsequent melodies. The production quality is also really strong here. In fact, my main complaint is probably a lack of originality. Everything from the sound design to the arrangement to the harmonic structure seems cliche in this piece. It might’ve helped if you had offered more variety later on, especially by making the last refrain distinct from the first one. The ending also cuts off a bit suddenly, although that should be an easy fix. Overall, though, you won me over with the rich atmosphere, blissful mood, and solid mixing and mastering. You clearly have good melody writing skills too. Keep at it, Bow1255! :)

lots of good ideas in this track. i'm particularly impressed with the way the drops are crafted, i can hear lots of attention to detail on how things build and the timing for when things cut out. there's definitely too much time spent in these buildup sections, and a lot of energy from the main sections fades away immediately. at the very least i think you can keep the kicks and hard bass synth playing over the 8 bars after each current drop, if that makes sense. the main lead tone is very shrill and i would either turn it down or comp that 1k-2k range down harder. and definitely not use it at all in the buildups so it POPS in the drop! lots of potential in this one. make more!
