I absolutely love how punchy the bass line is!
I think the synth in the breakdown that starts at 1:30ish is a little too simple. It doesn't have much character. It's too clean.
I'd actually say the latter half of the track is where it starts to lose direction for me. I had hoped it was going to have a huge impact into something powerful and big but it's very gentle.
It works though. And I mean, it depends what your direction was and where you wanted to take it. It could be very purposeful.
That throaty bass line is fucking dope.
Here's what I've got going, I posted an earlier version a while ago but this is approaching full length now.
I like the breakdowns. The climaxes don't particularly grab me from an arrangement standpoint. I don't really feel like the they have a direction. Also, maybe to much mid bass/mid elements at the climaxes (specifically the piano)? I like a lot of the drums you have going on, the reverse piano thing, and the ambient background noise starting about :30 when the piano is playing. It is a really nice soundset, the bass at the climax is huge, but I think the song needs a different direction at the climaxes. Maybe even something more amelodic, since the breakdowns are melodic and you have a great bass to make something really simple and energetic at the climax.
