perfect.

Lapse responds:

Nothing is perfect.
ty for yout time. ;)

love the sound and the feel. round the one minute mark when more percussion comes in, it gets a little too compressed. Only other complaint is, ew sleigh bells at the end. Otherwise this was very enjoyable.

Lapse responds:

I made/released this around Xmas as a gift to listeners (uploaded to NG later). Lots of mixed feelings in this tune. Spending the holidays by myself. A bit of reflection. That feeling of invasive joy around the holidays. Hence the track title / ending sleigh bells / glockenspiel.. It was a very conscious choice to try and work some sleigh bells in and make them sound ok. Trust me, I wouldn't use them otherwise, heh. I still like the way they fit. Glad you noticed, haha. I thought I disguised them better. Thanks a lot for listening.

Honestly, this is probably one of the greatest songs i've ever heard. segment at 2:40 is a bit out of place, but its really nice and doesnt break too far from the rest of the song.

Lapse responds:

There are so many other amazing musicians out there. I appreciate the hyperbole though :). Makes me feel pretty damn good man. Funny you think 2:40 is out of place. . I always had the inkling that ~3:30 felt out of place. . Glad you dig so much though, I put some heart into it. Hope the rest of my stuff is equally as enticing.

Oh, this is tight.

Lapse responds:

ty.
