This is a collection of 3 1/2 songs. It might be better to sit back and just chill while listening to this, rather then scrutinize every measure. It does repeat a bit, but I think the buildup is completely necessary, and with vocals it isn't anywhere as noticeable.

I'll stop trying to defend it now, haha. Kick back and enjoy.
That was pretty nice! It's rare to see post rockish stuff on this forum, everyone just write prog metal and metalcore
I liked the beginning (bars 1-23), nice arpeggios and drumming. The chords going after that are a bit boring, but maybe it's because of GP sound.
Bar 150 is my favorite part. Everything from that point till the end is cool too.
