So, before your DQ, I had already scored your track and typed up a review. Have at thee:

I like the frantic synth bass at the beginning and the groovy, echo-y pads at :07. The mix is loud, clean, and well-balanced, but the progression is a little slow-paced. The texture starts to get a little more engaging by around :50, and I’m really enjoying the melodies by 1:05 or so. The piece might need a bit more of a sense of direction after that point, and the minimal breakdown at 1:58 didn’t quite give me that feeling of ebb-and-flow that I was looking for. I like the added harmonies at 2:42, but the melodic variations at 3:40 are what really sold this piece for me. It just starts to sound a lot more dynamic by that point. I enjoyed the cross-fading action at the very end too. The sound design is cute, and the blissful mood and rich atmosphere complement it well. My biggest complaint is probably in the structure/arrangement. Even though the piece flows smoothly, it has multiple long sections of the piece that have a very similar energy level and overall flavor, which could use some breaking up to really emphasize the emotional highs and lows here. It might even have a similar effect if you varied the harmonic progression at some point. Still, that’s a relatively small detail in the grand scheme of things. Solid work with the production, sound design, and atmosphere here, BasiatordeCoronatus! ^_^
