I still miss a solo and some more progressive parts. Whyyyy,Stinsen? ;)

Awesome, and to me, only beginning is "typical Stinsen Schmaltz". Tempo and theme change afterwards is what's really blasted me at the party. It's a tune that (even on an extremely high level) grows on listening again and again!

Dear Stinsen, congratz for bronze! Solid soundwork with beautiful cheesy melodies - as usal. Good for shaking those hips! ;-)

I like 00:41–00:48. :) The rest has too much cheese on it for my taste.

If it had had a solo and some more dynamics it would have won my heart entirely. Hate to say, but ... really tasty stuff, Stins. Well done!

Really digging this one. Esp the build on 0:22 0:33 and 1:50 with the longer notes elements.. happy :D

Not even a 8 bar solo thingie? ;)

Could have done without the slow intro, which makes room for a Stinsen melody hook in main part (like from 1.40). Other than that, progression and bridge are really cool.

Really nice chords and tune in general - I love your stuff :D

Thanks for the nice comments (and votes). I never expected it to be top 3 (or even top 10 for that matter) after hearing the other entries. Since it was started so late, I felt it was rather unfinished (lack of transitions, main melody etc). I guess you never know how compos turn out; that "untz untz" and the player might have helped a bit though. :D @encore: Very glad you picked up on those chords from the intro, didn't think anyone would notice. :D

The slow part in the beginning was one of the best parts of this tune, the other parts were best too.

Unz, unz, Stinsen! Lovely intro and nice fiddling with arps - really energetic ;) I only miss some memorable lead theme, hence -1 for that :P

Nice dynamic tune, really like the chords in the intro that you return to later in the upbeat-part.
