started off as an idea I threw together one night and had no intention of finishing, but decided to come back to it the next day and this was the result.

I like the wonky drums at :05. They're very creative rhythmically. You switch up the texture a lot during the first 30 seconds or so, with at least 3 different instruments playing your (rather cliche) chord progression. I think all the sudden changes ruined the sense of linearity of the track. In fact, you do the same thing at :50 and other places. I'd encourage you to structure your track around a contrast between some sort of melodic content and a secondary idea or theme. Right now, it seems like the main source of variation in your piece is either adding/subtracting instruments without warning, or laying out the chord progression using another instrument. Meanwhile, the piece doesn't really do anything interesting harmonically. I also didn't think the transition at 2:08 worked very well. I would suggest at least smoothing it over with some reverb. I've been tough on you in this review, but most of my complaints boil down to one main idea: you're using a simple, generic 4-chord pattern for the entire piece. I'd encourage you to make a piece that breaks away from such a repetitive harmonic framework at some point. It'll just be a lot more of an engaging experience for your listener. PM me when you've made a piece that you think fits this criteria. I'll leave you another review. Keep at it, man! ;)
