Misael: everything from the string machine/pad, crazy perc and amazing chord structure, I was blown away. And don't listen to sci, ended on a WONDERFUL note hah.

obScene: Very happy, wonderful instrumentation and everything just works together so well!

Atmospherium: Great vocals, and the guitar is spot on. The solos stood out, you know how to play that thing

jəkstəpəˈziSH(ə)n - I really like the execution of the motifs, and the sounds used were excellent choices

Strange Design - Sound design. I absolutely loved it.

ethansight's main problem was too short! I wanted more!

Random-storykeeper's fadeout could have been replaced with an ending.

NickC was very good, but something about the guitar grated on my ears.

1) "Strange Design" - I love the intensity and mood throughout.

2) "By design" - Nice simplicity and choice of instruments. I like the little clock sound as choice of percussion.

3) "Took Our Skies Away" - I'm not completely sold on the vocals, but I like the melody and the lyrics.

Atmospherium: vocal entries with lyrics are always impressive, even if the vocals themselves aren't perfect. The song is very pretty and well done.

Random-storykeeper. lovely entry, very chill and peaceful. Descending-bass entries are always my weak spot.

NickC: While somewhat repetitive, there's a certain peace-and-quiet mood in this that I really like.

obScene: super beautiful and emotive as usual. IMO the drums/bass combo are a bit invasive, and don't mesh that well. Other than that, I loved it.
 

awesum: Atmospherium, dusthillguy, ethansight, InvisibleObserver, NickC, obScene, Random-storykeeper.
good: Arcana, GreyHooves, sci.
