I like the pensive mood at the beginning and the cute synths. The bass at :13 really helps fill out the texture, although the progression of the piece is a bit slow-paced at times. The side-chaining here is a bit too heavy, and it’s especially noticeable when even the crash effect at :58 gets very distorted by the compression. The texture at 1:43 sounds a little harsh in a way that feels uncharacteristic of the piece up to that point, and the synth with the pitch-bending at 2:13 got a little repetitive and obnoxious. I like the loud mix and the well-balanced frequencies, but I wanted to hear more prominent melodic content and a more harmonically adventurous approach to this piece. The breakdown at 2:42 is nice, but you the return of the irksome effects and repetitive high-pitched patterns towards the end didn’t help complete the storyline of the piece very well in my opinion. That problem was exacerbated by the sudden ending, too. Overall, I think this piece has a lot of catchy components, and you’re clearly a talented produce, but the wonky sound design at the refrains and the over-saturated mix hurt this piece a bit. Still, you have a lot of good ideas between the progression and some of the more mild-mannered synth riffs; I’d encourage you to keep working on this piece. Keep at it, Kyutatsuki! :)
