You know, that seemed pretty well done. Everything felt coherent, and it had a solid flow.

The only thing that bugged me a little bit was the 8-5-3-0 progression. It just gets used so much. I think...

I thought that was pretty nice actually. My favorite part was the verse. Just has a really good feel to it I thought, so I'd definitely want to see more of that kind of stuff. Everything else worked...

There is some potential here.

The parts that I really did not like were the sweeps in 15-16, and the F#'s in the part at 26. There's nothing wrong with dissonance, but they sounded more like wrong...

No, I didn't. I thought it could fit pretty well into a piece. The drums and guitar add a more driving feel to it. You could even start off with the riff without any guitar or percussion and then...

I definitely wouldn't call that classical.

That was very nice. I don't really have anything new to add, just that I agree with what has been said about needing more rhythms in the solo.

Not bad. You're definitely improving from what I can tell.

You did get a little bit locked into one single rhythm, especially towards the end. Giving the drums or rhythm guitar a different rhythm...

Yes, you have to match the pitch that you hear with your voice. This is something that you can improve upon by doing ear training/aural skills exercises.

There wasn't really anything here that hasn't been done before, but that doesn't matter. I enjoyed it. The lyrics piled on top of each other at some points so I couldn't read it all sadly. Even so, I...

It was definitely enjoyable. Felt like the ambient outro needed a little bit more added to it after a while.

Parts of it reminded me of Thrice. I think it was how the 7-3-3 became 7-2-2. Got that...

It was nice. I liked the chorus and that tone cluster in bar 17. Some vocals would definitely add to it once you get around to it.

Naw, it isn't the exact same riff. It does sound like they use the same set of notes, but the rhythm isn't the same and the Meshuggah song has a more disjointed feel to it in regards to the rest of...

Definitely goes on too long without more happening. Throw in a melody over that and it should get things rolling. Just be sure not to get trapped on that vamp forever.

Definitely needs more color tones. Right now it's a lot of empty chords (5 chords, no color tones like thirds, sevenths, etc.) Throwing in tones that add more color will do wonders...
