I like the dreamy mood at the beginning and the echo effects. The thinner texture at :33 right before the huge uptick in intensity was pretty effective as a transitional technique. The melodic content at the 1-minute mark was nice, too, and the bass riff at 1:38 sounds really cool. I thought you could’ve done a lot more with the drums in this piece, though. The crashes are really quiet, and there isn’t a lot of other content in that upper frequency range to fill out the texture, either. The harmonic progression is great at around 2:30, although it feels like forever since there’s been a good bout of structural relief by the time 3:16 rolls around. Glad you brought this piece full circle by bringing back the dreamy vibe from the beginning, but it’s still a pretty sudden mood shift at 3:16. The energetic outro at 3:50 was a nice touch, though. Overall, solid work, JDawg00100! This piece is engaging, melodious, and catchy. Keep up the good work. ^_^

Thank you for the detailed review!

Loving the full sounding rhythm guitars. The playing is great. And the harmonizing leads create some really dramatic moments.

Gives me slight old Machine Head vibes.
Not Old Old Machine Head.
The Blackening Machine Head.
