this song is amazing
As usual, great lead writing, good transitions. Lots of mod-wheel play. Mixing could be a little more transparent and clean with the percussion -- which seems a bit muffled now that I mention it.
A lot of the transitions remind me of music from Wave Race 64. Very fun. I did hear a wrong note somewhere in there around where those muffled vocals come in in the soloing lead. Can't point out the time because I can't see it anymore, lol.
Anyway, this track has been quite a journey and a good listen. Could use a bit more clarity, like I mentioned earlier, but melodic presentation always wins the day. Would have really liked a bit more on that outro. It was just getting good!
I like the funky guitar synth at the beginning. The piece is a little slow to progress, and you may have gone a little overboard on the reverb. The mix is pretty clean overall, and I really like the solo at around ⅖ of the way through (RIP time counter). One thing that bothers me about the piece is the lack of structural cohesion. It seems like you tried to take the piece in a very different every 30 seconds or so, and the entrance of the main melody again after the bridge was not very subtle TBH. I also thought the chord progression was a little cliche. The ending comes together well, though, and the “last hurrah” guitar riff was both extremely amusing and entirely unnecessary IMO. I’ve been tough on you here, but there’s no denying that the killer melodies, spacey atmosphere, and sound design carry this piece. That's not a bad thing, though - you guys are really good at killer melodies, spacey atmosphere, and sound design. Keep up the good work! ^^

That sounds like Johnfn melodies.
This is pretty great to listen to though.
