Holy mother of god
this is AWESOME. I'm a percussionist, and am a bit obsessed with great sounding drums, and my god, this is well done. How could you think my song's percussion was good when you've made this? The bongos are incredible, tamborine and triangle backs it perfectly, and then the cross sticking tops it off brilliantly, its like some wierd rock/samba. The piano is also well done, I love how the strings and piano intertwine near the beginning, and then the drums come back in full swing. Right about 1:20 is the coolest, the piano melody really expands and then the guitar comes in... this hardly sounds electronic, which is a hard accomplishment. My only critique AT ALL is the ending, I'm guessing you just got bored or ran out of ideas...? but a proper ending would pretty much guarentee it being one of my favorite songs.
Really, this is fantastic, a shame the score is so low. You blended about 5 different genres (classical, rock, jazz, samba) perfectly, and it sounds incredible. I mean, jesus man, this song is so close to being one of the coolest things ever, make an ending that does the rest of the song justice!! Until then, I'm fiving the shit outta this thing
