You made a fine job creating some chilling mood. Your guitar leads are pretty good, especially in combination with the delay effect.
In its style it reminds me on David L. Jones - Iceberg (which is pretty awesome!) but somehow he managed it better to build the song up to a certain "mood explosion", just one kind of highlight or anything.
I really like yours as well and I guess it´s the kind of song which never bores played in background, but somehow you´re just waiting for something to come, but it doesn´t come, if you understand what I mean ;)
These are the only critcs I have, but this missing link makes the differnce between a good and an awesome song. at least for me. But good it is without a doubt.

Very nice song, it nicely accomplishes an atmospheric, flowing type of mood - nice waves of dynamics flowing up and down steadily throughout. This song really has no parts I could discern as badly integrated, everything fits together very well and makes a coherent, pleasant listening experience.

The mood remains pretty stable throughout, the mixing is pretty well accomplished. I'd say the highlight for this song in my opinion is the dynamic work and the fact that everything sounds rounded, and very full, something that atmospheric music requires to achieve the desired effect.

I'd have to agree with Donkey of Steel to some regard though, not in the sense that I'm awaiting something to come, I'm moreso awaiting something to stick out from the rest, or something to really stick in your memory. That's a small issue though, because I can't criticize anything else about it.

For that it's worth 4 stars, very well deserved - 4 stars being an above average song, but lacking that extra little... je ne sais quoi.

Well, I started to know your music in last Skeleton Competition, where you did an awesome work. This song just confirmed to me the talented musician you are, and made almost a fan of your job. Irrelevance is just stunning, perfect i´ll say, with awesome arrengments, great drum tracks, an unique ambience and mood, excellent progression with obvious musical knowledge, without forgetting the "feeling" ingredient that all songs should have. I´m not in the position of giving you any constructive advice at all, just keep with the great work. Congratulations!
(The amount of stars i´ll give your song it´s preety obvious)

Yep, yet another clean arpeggio intro. Nothing special there, moving on. :P

As always, really nice drumwork. Nothing more to really say in particular about that.

Probably my favourite part is the very first verse solo. Just some really nice phrasing and melody there without going over the top with runs or anything.

And you officially are awesome for your chord progression in parts in the second verse. Nice way to progress the song further. Particular moments I love - first chord on bar 47, second chord on bar 52. Love it. Not to mention the arpeggio guitar working in synch with the Rhodes in the latter half of the verse - yea, I guess that's another particular favourite moment.

Really, my only criticism of this is that I hope to see you moving away from your particular construction of chords - like I think we talked about a while back, you really like your 2nds. Come on, I want to see you pull off something... cleaner would be the word, I guess. Interesting work CAN be done with "conventional" chords. Not to mention that it's something different for you. It's making it harder and harder to write comments, also. :P

Anyway, yep, very nice song.

4.5 stars.

Yes, another clean arpeggio intro, but it still sounds great XD. I'm impressed how bussy your drums and bass lines can be, hehe, anyway, this kinda works here but after a while I'm starting to think that I might need some rest. And yeah, the break and the interlude seem to come just in the right place for the sake of my ears. =)

The only thing I'd like to do with this song is to erase some solos, simplify the drums and bass and add a nice and sad vocal melody, this could have been easily your most emotional song ever if you had manage to control yourself and not go insanely wanky.

Yeap, that's the main issue here, everything is damn good, the chord progression, even the backing tracks and solos, but I feel this is a song where less is more and more is less... and unfortunately you couldn't keep quite and hit just the right notes in the right spots. Anyway, I'm not gonna go part by part cause I have no specific complains like: "hey there's an ugly dissonance here and there, etc".

Anyway, this is my winner though: 4.5 stars
