Dayum that was quite the experience son!

Listening to your music I can see why you said my song sounded repetitive. Odd time signature changes GALORE!

Every couple of bars something changes, sometimes it was a bit hard to keep track of it.


But goddamn was that awesome, especially the funk jazz part. That shit was jazzed up good.

The solos were ****ing nice as well

I thought the intro was alright, nothing special, until the jazzy part came in; and it wasn't your typical try-hard jazz that most prog bands do just for the sake of being prog. It was actually well done imo. The transition out was great too. I find that this is where most wannabe "prog" bands get caught up but you effectively transitioned out of it.
The transition to "odd time melodic riff" was really abrupt though, and it felt out of place. and the bars of 19/16 and 17/16 didn't really flow that great. Funky uplifting groove was nice though and I dug the third solo.
The ending breakdown felt kinda out of place; I'll emphasize the kinda because I'm still a bit undecided after a few listens. The riff is cohesive enough to fit there but something just feels lacking.
You've got an interesting sound and some cool ideas you just need to refine them a bit more.

well, with this particular song, some of the transitions were supposed to be abrupt, but that one into the odd time riff is less smooth than planned. ill work on it though, as well as the transition into the ending breakdown
