groove at the party's celebration, for fun of course!@

the first 10 seconds i heard i was like "YOHOHO IRELAND!!!" awesome tune yo!!
you should make more stuff like this, i make music also n__n;

The first impression that I get is partly medieval, partly electronic céilidh -- but the styles sound too mixed up for me to be lost in the dynamism of this piece. Instead of a mishmash of everything and anything, it would have sounded perfect with only one EDM style of preference (house? trance?) and medieval style. Some parts sound like classic Sonic, which just doesn't fit. I love céilidhs, and when I hear something along the lines of a céilidh dance track, I want to dance out. I want to be merry. 4:38 is one example of sections I enjoy in this piece, and for what you did here, it was the climax -- but I could've sworn I was yearning for an even bigger climax...

I also notice a lack of humanisation in some instrumental parts -- they all sound like each note is being played at the same volume..... I've been notorious for that same error in past years.

Your melody hook is catchy, and your chords are amazing. Good chords are part of what makes a song special in my ears. Even in the sections which I find meh (e.g. 0:47 onwards), you show good skill with thenotation, your bass moves about playfully. Some parts of the melody don't catch me because they seem to be darting all over the place.

This song needs to be remade along the lines of a Celtic dance anthem -- full of expression, full of passion, all within the same context and genre, with a memorable melody extending beyond just the proverbial chorus -- but with the same good bass and chord work.

This song does have multiple genres, but I thought they merged together pretty fluidly. And a Celtic Dance based on this song's chorus would be pretty cool! I might do that one day if I get the time.

Most happy and fun track I've heard. It's absoluty amazing and just smells of a pure genius :D!
