Aaah finally something to listen to
My first thought 10seconds out in this one was: "Yes, it sounds like this will be good. It sounds pro!". And now. 20 minutes later. It is still looping. So I guess you achieved what you set out to do. Making a pleasent mellow ambient tune. I like it a lot, and I dont really have anything to complain about at all. The instruments all meld perfectly together, and it all sounds like it is supposed to. And setting the theme with your story above, always helps the imagination set off in the right direction. Good work.
Artistic complaint: If I made this, I would've maybe swapped out the drums, percussion and bass with something more digital and deep. A little more "outer-space". Some thumping house-kicks arranged as your drum-line allready is, only with maybe some low-pass filter and reverb. I dont know, the pop/rock-drums just didnt fit into what my mind was expecting when it all hit the fan. But thats just personal preference, and it rocks at it is.
You're allready one of my few favorite artists.
So I'll just 5 and 10 you this time.
