The intro drags on a little more than what I am used to hearing from you and your older work, but the essential build-up is relative to what comes at 1:10 and onward so it seems. With the blast at 1:28, really got me hooked and lets just say that the utilization of layers here is impressive as FUCK! I know you didn't care for this piece, but you should Nut-Punch yourself, because frankly ~ they flow nicely together!
Moving on ~ The drop at 2:30 was nice, as well as the bass kicks...made my Cat look up, and you should know by now...if my cat looks up, its gooooood! I feel some Sonic 2 in there BIG time starting at 2:51! VERY nice touch bro! A good way to always captivate your listeners is to utilize change-ups (Which you have been doing for YEARS!) and even throw in some tidbits of classic games from the what...80s and 90s? HA!
The drop at 4:20 and fadeout made me wonder exactly what the fuck you were thinking...as that kinda "Burned" my bridge, but the silent pickup made me shut my fingers down from taking half a star.
To be honest, if you do the Ninja Gaiden project that you have in the works similar to this piece...I can see it being front paged! You have quite the following, and a "silent fanbase" that would probably go ape shit crazy over such a piece :P But then again...I'm just that One guy ;-)
