The illustrious Monsieur Elephant is coming to town for a bite at the corner deli and a fine sport of pulverizing the impoverished.

You make a great job setting a mood with the first minute or so, but some of the voice leading leaves a bit to wish for! Some progressions are also a bit meandering and repetitive.

01:20 again does a nice job of setting a mood, and the arrangement is here much more convincing, though the production/MIDI programming leaves more to be desired here instead.

The ending is a bit meh, the last minute and a half pretty much feels like a build-up that doesn't go anywhere - kinda works, but I felt it'd be more convincing if it ended abruptly, rather than by "fading out".

Generally I'd perhaps advice practicing some 4-part writing, boring if you don't like that kinda stuff, but rewarding skillwise!

I agree that the voice leading does leave a bit to wish for, someone of an educated caliber could actually take it somewhere. You seem like someone actually studying music, while I am not. I would definitely try 4-part writing, but I always thought that was more for choral type pieces? Anyways, this particular piece exemplifies my terrible work ethic since it was all written in around four hours. So it ends stupidly because...that's how I thought it should end. Basically, I agree that it's like a build-up that doesn't go anywhere. Though I have to disagree with it being repetitive. In a rhythmic sense, okay fine. I'm awful at being rhythmically creative. But I think I added enough sparkly aesthetics to mask it effectively, at least to the passerby listener. Anyways, thanks for giving a review that wasn't "great job." Keep on tellin' the classical kiddies what's up. Or some riffraff. And maybe take a listen to some of my other stuff too ):
