To be brief, this mix has become my favorite song. Not just from this site, but since the first time I heard it, it has been the one song that has been my absolute favorite. As in, no other song I own has captured my attention and my imagination as much as this one.
The two themes blend seamlessly and swirl together to create an intoxicating audio experience. Each time I listen to it, I hear things about it I hadn't caught before. Even after hundreds of listens, I still find an immense amount of gratification and wonder from this one song. After only about 9 or 10 months, it has become my top played song in itunes and I've listened to it even more in my car on cd. The total has come now to 364. The next most played song comes in at 276, and coincidentally it's one of yours; The Koan of Drums.
The only gripe I have at all is that on the sections where the bass drum restarts its beat, it's a bit overpowering through headphones. But really, it's so minor I only notice it when I'm paying attention.
I am a huge fan of your work, if it hasn't already been obvious and I always look forward to any works you may post.
