Oooo...I love the pizzicato-esque synths at the beginning. It's very moody and atmospheric, and I think the flute-like synth and sweep at :17 really added to the effect. The drums around :34 are a little loud for my tastes, but that's true in a lot of your tracks, a remainder of your drum-and-bass days, I believe. ;) That grouchy bass that first appears really up-front in the mix at 1:06 added to the piece a lot IMO. I loved the melody at 1:36, although at times its rhythm is a little hard to follow and it was a little loud as well, I believe. I love the Far Eastern theme, though. ^^ I also liked that extended breakdown section that started around 2:40, and what you started doing with the drums around 3:15 was really cool. I personally think you should try doing more melodic-based stuff like this. ;) That grittier-sounding synth that comes in at 4:08 also works strangely well with the synth at 4:17. It has an angry, energetic quality and a chill quality at the same time, which I love, and you use it to transition back into the "refrain" at 4:50 so well. This is also one of your less repetitive pieces, which I appreciate. I think you underestimate your own mixing abilities, because everything sounds pretty clear to me. ^_^ I kind of actually liked the ending, despite its being a bit of a fade-out. I would've liked to see you have more of a conclusive final riff with that last atmospheric synth that ultimately fades out, though. Anyway, in general this is really solid work again, RoVeRDude58! I look forward to hearing your other future tracks. ;D
