I love your compositions, they are all so awesome. Really, these are very good pieces. If I had any critical thing to say it would be on the percussion being quantized. I really don't like things quantized, and your music is right there at the verge of breaking free and this mechanical computer MIDI quantizing takes away some of the human emotion of the song. That is all I can find wrong with it..I give it still 5 stars, and more! 5+++
