I like the refreshing guitar riffs at the beginning and the slow rhythmic pacing of the lead. The melodic content at :32 is nice, and the piece has a great sense of flow too. You also do a pretty good job of giving the composition a sense of ebb and flow over time, although there are a couple of long sections where the piece has a pretty constant sense of intensity. I appreciated the variations on one of the main riffs at 2:30, and I think the production quality of the piece is also pretty sharp. I think the piece would’ve come together a bit better towards the end if you had a full-length climactic section there. I also think the fade-out ending came across as a bit lazy. Still, strong work overall.

Knowing more about what you did with regards to the mix here makes it that much more interesting to me. Mixing music of this style and genre has always been a massive challenge, but damn dude this mix was really on point.

Solid song, solid execution. I have no words of technical criticism, and subjective opinion is meaningless, though I did enjoy the piece tremendously.

A+.
