That moment when the airplane first taxis out on the runway... and you just sit for a moment.

But suddenly everything shakes violently before you're propelled hundreds of miles an hour out into the wild blue yonder.

The chords are beautiful, the instrumentation is A+, and the song fits the description to a tee. Wonderful.

(Mixing does need a bit of work though!)

SuperGoodSound responds:

thanks bro!!! you rock

This song represents clearly your description, of that i'm sure.
I agree with our mate Rhoder about the bassline, it would be good if you re-work the bassline and try to make it spacier.
It would be better for this song if you try to fill the small empty spaces with atmosphere.
The piano lines are strong, very well composed, i like it a lot.
I think you should try to understand what sounds are more inportant in this song.
When you reach 01:02 there are some sounds / instruments that are not so audible as others.
with some eq you can decide what sounds are the most important ones to be heard.
I tell you this because at 01:02 there's a lot going on, you have a lot of good sound layers that could be heard. (my opinion...)
I like the dreamy pads that you used, and one of the best features that i can find in your song is when the music is almost at the end, the way you have managed to end the song is very inteligent.
You release all the tension from before with a simple, yet beautifull piano line taking us to a gentle, warm, smoth end of a trip. That's poetry man. :)
You did an awesome work!

SuperGoodSound responds:

Yeah, this song i know i didn't really nail the mixing part of it as well as I have done with other songs. Thank you for the compliments though :)


SuperGoodSound responds:


I assume the plane starts to speed up when the drums kick in. That's what I feel anyway.

I think a more thicker spacier bassline would do better for this. It'll help add more atmosphere. (bad pun intended).

Good stuff overall. I dig the lo fi sound too.

SuperGoodSound responds:

I like the overall melding of sounds the best in this one. Thicker bassline would definitely have helped, I concur.
