I hate it when you are riding in a boat in Minecraft and you bump into a squid and it breaks the boat.
Tune is inspired by "ocean travel" in Minecraft.

Ok, the drum in the beginning is boss.
As the synth comes in around 00:45 I realize this is the work of a master, someone that knows what he's doing. There is much taste playing around with every idea in this song.

There are slight, inherent variations in the synth loop that, despite the repetitive nature of house, makes the whole thing not seem repetitive at all. That's something I applaud and hope that someday I'll learn to do.

Ambiance is good, I really get the feeling of a somewhat joyful frustration.

Didn't expect 03:05, reeaally liked it.
I really dig this piece! It somehow fits Minecraft quite well.

I actually like it so much, I feel glad I decided to check the "review4review thread" today.
I'd totally buy an album in this style and mood!

Thanks! I'm really glad you checked out my music and I'm happy to see you enjoyed it so much!
Thank you for your kind words!

Hmm, very strange tuning fluctuations in the drums in the beginning. It's not inherently bad, I'm just not used to them. I notice you lose them after the beginning, which made me a little sad, strangely enough.

Solid drum beats - I like the set you're using for this. The trippy sounds are fun to listen to, as well, and you're using your panning space effectively. I really wish you didn't do a 6-minute variations track on the same four notes, though; while I like the space you set up, after a while I started skipping through the track, as I was just getting bored.

Production is pretty tight on this, just wish the arrangement moved a bit more. Not bad, though.

Reinteck responds:

Thanks for the review and helpful tips! I will definitely think about these things when I make future songs. Thanks for checking out my music!
