While I'm usually a fan of your original pieces Janitor, I must say this is one of your weakest compositions. But that doesn't mean it's bad. Far from it. I think the melody is pretty nice, along with the overall feeling the track has.

The main problem with it is that it is a little too repetitive. It stays too long on the same segment, with little variation. And when it does change from one segment to another, that new segment is also repetitive. Then it returns to the initial segment, and guess what, repetitive.

Usually, I think repetition works well on slower and more methodical tracks (methodical tracks?), but on fast paced tracks like this, it gets stale pretty quickly. Again, not saying it's bad, but you've done better.

Also, damn you RushJet1 and your ability to come up with cool names for your songs! As well as your better... well... everything else!

That's a fair assessment. I admit I didn't really focus on establishing a unique melodic identity for this so much as an experiment in this style of instrumentation and arrangement. Something to emulate that kind of EDM-style chiptune, which I guess tends to be repetitive by its nature.

Thanks for your input, I think this constructive criticism will be helpful if I decide to revisit the concept!
