TimeSig2011 woo

I hate this song now actually but here it is in some sort of finished form. Was going to record vocals and i even wrote lyrics but then I didn't finish it properly so if you're wondering why it's repetitive and annoying then that's why.

Time signatures used:
7/8 (main)
15/8
13/8
14/8
5/4
9/8
4/4
and polyrhythms in 3/8 and 5/8. Phew! I attempt to play bass guitar on this (all the guitars on this are also bass cause i can't play a regular 6-string electric guitar at all). Try and enjoy it.

This is incredible

This truly is an amazing song. Very few songs make me feel this happy, and this one definitely did. Your use of time signature variation is great and doesn't detract from the groove of the song like it sometimes does in other music. Your melodies..man, I can't get enough of them, and the synths playing them are all so amazing. This is a total home run, and I have no idea how you could hate something that's THIS good.
