WOw, the single-line parts were super well done! I've never seen such smooth moves before, and it's so satisfying that it's also synchronized. Great job with those spins, they're really slick. Also those leaps off the line, I get roller coaster feelings. Really effective use of pressure (and also lack thereof(¡¡¡this is important!!!)). Would recommend to a friend enthusiastic about choreography.

My biggest criticism is that the synced tumbling parts corresponding to the quiet parts of the music feels somewhat forced. I feel like the notes in the song don't hit as hard as those lines hitting bosh. I personally would have chose not to use hard sync in those sections.

also, thanks for being gentle with the camera.

Okay okay okay.

Let me start by saying

wot

You've made a full length (x2) track in 2 days. That is mindblowing, respect. I've now rewatched it a couple of times, and although the manuals and quirk are undeniably amazing... It lacks that fun factor, I suppose. And that's weird, because the song is a lot more laid back than in your other tracks. You've mastered LRA. Syncs, manuals, tumbling and quirk are all on point. But I feel like, although you've made the jawdropping V3 and WTK, your style is now starting to become a bit robotic. That's my only criticism, by the way. I'm not saying I don't like the cleanliness, because I do. It reminds me of Chui Ninji a lot, particularly Secrets.

Obviously I won't tell you how to play LRA, but I think you can do more with your skills in ... trackery.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "robotic"?

I think he means it's so technically perfect it feels unnatural.

I would love to watch you manual in LRA sometime, sheldon. I'm wondering if there are techniques I am missing that could speed up the process for me.

I would also like this, because I can't do good manuals in LRA. Trying to use the live line stuff with manuals throws me off.

This track is growing on me. Somehow a feel-good-watch. Extremely satisfying to see all these super smooth quirks, music syncs and super fast tumbles fly by. Song-choice fits the overall-feel of the track perfectly as well.

One thing I noticed after watching it a few more times is that I don't get the music/sync (or lack of) from 58 - 1:16. It seems to be synced somehow, but I don't quite get how.

We review ocean blue from about 47:00 to about 56:00
Apologies for the terrible framerate and audio issues but hopefully what we say is interesting.
