Official AIM Review!
Man, super cheery cotton-candy progression. Imaginative textures.
00:58 is where things finally gel together cohesively, largely on part of your bass. I really feel like the flowery keys and other leads aren't meshing exceptionally well with your D&B drums. However, points for taking an adventurous approach to the piece as a whole. Your modulation on your leads throughout is wonderful.
Piece is well written but feels pretty top heavy to me. Perhaps a bit too much reverb on some of your synths. 00:35 onward is where I really start feeling the thin -- perhaps too open -- quality of the piece. It diminishes some on a second listen. Those background string swells could do with being brought out a lot more on bigger sections and perhaps voiced differently. I'm really missing low mids throughout the whole piece!
2:57, brass seems to be farting in and out on that attack. Outro was totally unexpected. I was ready for a second run of the chorus. Last minute key change? Second listen I was a little more prepared.
Overall, pretty solid piece. Thanks again for turning out to this year's AIM!
