I like the usage of the sort of tremolo guitar sound and the vocals are excellent as always.  It takes some interesting twists and turns as it goes, too.  Definitely worth some further investigating.  smile

Awesome sample work! Speaking in tongues... When that low bass sound drops, so good!

Seriously crazy piece! I love it... the mood is beautifully fragmented and I especially like how those "orchestral" hits (reverse guitar?) work in the last third of the piece.

Thank you all! The "orchestral" part was indeed reversed, stretched and pitch-shifted using transposition curves. To give it that lovely seasick feeling.

Fantastic soundscape throughout the track! I also very much enjoyed the tremolo effect you used on the guitar and the creative sampling is top-notch as always smile

Great use of vocal samples as usual and love that bass!

big_smile I listen the fourth time to this and in the end i always forgot what i wanted to write...
I definitly like it!
This deeper synth with the reverses at the end are super cool! Reminds a bit to some Kool Keith track.

I love the balance between tonality and completely experimental stuff, this is really cool to listen to heart

Nice use of the vox and gotta love that tripped out guitar sample.  Love that crazy backwards sounding sample towards the end too.  That Mika video is pure gold btw smile

brilliant track title.

great "chorus" section?  I like that there is a break from the vocals and there are some interesting things going on with the "string" instruments.

what an adventure.  cool tension build for an outro, crazy

Thanks! Watched a bunch of clips from "Inception" before working on this. ::)

Title was an afterthought. I usually have dynamic working titles like "test #37." Heh.

Danke sehr! Sometimes (actually, often) I surprise myself. What I begin with radically changes.

That vocal makes me smile. Feel like I'm talking to drunk person, or I'm drunk or both. Nice progression through this, kept me on my drunken toes.

You're just pure musical randomness, with a certain amount of predictable chopped vocals involved in process
