in the road. Perhaps this is their wandering soundtrack? Maybe a bit too lively and intricate for their 4 chambered stomach, but the music suits me just fine. I like how everything builds and locks together. Surprise middle section throws me a bit, but given your stated influences, it comes as no surprise. Really enjoy the change and the sounds at 3:30. Great production.

Sweet major 7ths to kick things off, Jon. Nice buildup, too. Interesting pause in the middle. Threshold reached? The piece then continues to build and sounds great. Lots going on but with purpose and musicality. Thanks, Peter.

That was a looong
55 seconds but well worth the wait, once it took off, then it started getting a little long on that same motif again for me, glad to hear the change at 2 mins, now that section left me wanting more which I like, and the next at 2;23 I thought you were going back to the original thing, but to my delight, that was just a teaser, now it takes off nicely, and changes yet again just at the right time, now you're keeping the changes short, and keeping the listener engaged, great build to the end, nice dude! Jd.

have to
agree that the intro could be shortened. it could turn one away and they'd miss all the sparks that come later. regardless, your playing is still on top.

Well done!
I really enjoyed the main theme. You combine the guitar and synth arpeggios beautifully and the drums fit in nicely. The tambourine is a nice touch. How many guitar tracks did you record for this, only 2?

I also don't mind the longer buildup - you keep adding layers to keep interest. In fact the soundbed you set up is so enjoyable I almost was hoping you'd go for variation, slight chord changes, similar to what you do around 3:30 although even there I'd stick to a similar drum kit to maintain the flow.

Very nice track though! A track with a similar feel comes to mind - the 'Humble Brothers' did a nice soundtrack called 'Metropolis' - it has a similar feel and they come up with a ton of different ways to keep it going. Check it out, see if you agree:)

It is what it is.
I was not that interested in chord structures with this one. The overall timbre and tonal qualities are what I focused on.
