Well, I'm finally back! I have a few projects piled up, and I'm going to begin uploading them slowly. But for now, here's Odyssey. It's the last space-themed piece, I promise. At least for a while. Enjoy!

I like the anticipatory string riffs at the beginning and the frantic energy and tension underlying the piece. The percussion helps fill out the texture nicely, and the melodic content at :40 is a nice change-of-pace after the intense beginning. The progression is a bit slow-paced until 1:34, but I like when the texture gets richer and fuller there. The breakdown at 2:05 was strong, and had some pleasing atmospheric components in the percussion and ascending synth lines. The production quality is strong here too, although occasionally there’s a tad too much reverb in the texture, and the mix overall is pretty quiet. The outro at 3:29 could’ve been a bit more creative, but overall I like the progression here too. Strong work overall, especially with the sound design, harmonic content, and atmosphere. Keep it up, SirQuebi! ^_^

All I can say is wow. While I do think you're being pretty generous in some areas, it's really heartening to see how much I've improved over the past 2 years. Thank you

Getting a mixed feel of a nautical adventure with a space tone, so I think the title of the track is definitely appropriate. Really awesome job with this one man, the pickup at the end was fantastic! Really got me pumped. Looking forward to your work in the future!

It feels more like a high seas adventure, rather than one out in space, but it's an impressive piece of music either way. Nearly half a year without a new song, but, man, it was well worth the wait.

Thank you for helping 2018 end on a high note, SirQ.
Happy New Year!
