I like the mellow guitar riff at the beginning and the atmosphere. The mix is clean, if a tad quiet, but I like the groovy yet introspective mood and the crisp percussion. The meandering melodies have a really refreshing, organic feel, yet the progression is pretty slow-paced and occasionally choppy. The breakdown at 1:20 comes on a bit suddenly, but I like the circular contour of the riff at 1:36 and the lead thereafter. I think it would help this piece to have a stronger sense of direction at times. It almost feels like you strung together three different “final climax” sort of solos for a slow jam here. The third one comes at around 2:50, and is also cool in isolation, but despite the consistent underlying harmonies and solid sense of flow, the structure doesn’t quite feel coherent here. Overall, solid work with the melodies, sound design, atmosphere, and mixing. Perhaps you could’ve channeled the emotional qualities of the piece a bit better here, though. Keep at it, MintyFreshThoughts! :)

would've liked more movement into the track, the three sections pretty much feel the same. but the ambience is great ! continue this way ! :)
