I like the blissful mood at the beginning and the energy. I think the drums might need a bit more prominence in the mix; I’d recommend some more compression and some tighter equalization on the other instruments. The lead synth at :41 (and other places) sounds a tad harsh at times - it might have a few too many treble tones. Still, the melodic content in this piece is really fun, and I like the brief moment of minimalism at 1:32. There are some rough transitions here, including 1:42, although the rhythm at 1:42 is awesome. The main melody might’ve needed a bit more variation during the last refrain at 2:13, but overall the harmonic content here is pretty solid. My main complaints are with the poorly-mixed drums, lack of originality in the sound design and chord progression, and somewhat choppy arrangement. I also thought the last note was held out for a bit too long. That said, the mood, melodies, rhythmic components, and atmosphere of this piece are all well done. Keep at it, colorsCrimsonTears! :)
