I made this song for my album but then it was kinda not the right vibe but i still kinda like it so here ya go <3

I used lots of live organ and acoustic drums on this one, plus a bit of bass guitar and a fuckton of synth madness from my trusty MS2000.

I named it Floydian after Pink Floyd because the melody is what Alex could call "Gilmoresque"

How is this so good ?

Some parts on the lead synth are a bit off, like around 1:00 and 5:00. The latter is more noticeable since it was played with drums. I think the biggest problem is about recording/mastering. Too much reverb on drums too, especially the toms. If you've used some sort of stereo separator, you've overdone it. Anyway, I like the use of noise, reverse effects in this piece.

Thanks for the review!
I don't know what you mean by the synth being "off", you mean in terms of the rhythm? I kinda wanted the melody to have a feeling of looseness to it, if that makes sense :)
And actually there is no reverb on the drums, it just sounds that way because I only had 1 microphone at the time unfortunately, so I wasn't really able to get a dry punchy sound (unless i were to multi-track the whole kit, of course.)
