1Overall Description
This is an interesting piece to listen to. The beginning has some nice/different sounds, as mentioned on the song details page, drill, footsteps, dog barking. Throughout the song these unusual sounds continue on and off.
2Creativity Description
This piece has a creative angle to it but it doesn't really push the limits of this genre. The piece doesn't really fit the chillout/lounge genre. I am unsure where it fits but it doesn't really relax me, the opposite really. I want to tap my foot/head to it. The melody is modified only slightly throughout the piece, with differnt beat variations and pitch used.
3Artistic License Description
The music in this piece is really nice but when I think about laying in a cellar trying to sleep, I don't really think about upbeat music. I felt the music choosen represents the mind working over time to get to sleep. Creativity wise, the extra sounds keeps the listener aware of the intention of the tracker and where he wants you to be on this journey.
4Arrangement Description
The arrangement is interesting with the artist setting the scene of being "under the cellar" and then jumps into a dancey piece without any warning. This first transition is not very smooth and it sounds like the artist has tried to use the drill sound to lead us in. I like the section around the 5.13 area where the music and tempo slows down. This is the sort of music I thought I would be hearing.
5Sound Quality Description
The quality of the samples used are not bad. They do work well together. The household sounds have been recorded through a wall or floor which works well for this piece.
6Does it work as a piece of music Description
This song does work as a piece of music. It is lacking something small but a nice dance piece with a good beat.

Thanks for your feedback TanTo. I am unsure where this track should go. Maybe trance but I don't listen to alot of other music apart from the pieces that I listen to (ambient, classical stuff). I may not be the best one to ask for that advice. I just felt that it didn't fit in the chillout/lounge section. I will do a little research when I have a bit of time and see what I can come up with. Thanks again and talk to you soon - BWA
