Bureau of broken sounds - ambient album WIP

Hi everyone!
I've been working on some ambient tracks this spring, and figured I'd put together an album (yet unnamed). I'm at the point now when I am done with the composition and most of the mixing. Hopefully, at least. I'm having some summer holiday now, and then moving on to mastering these tracks into an album, which is a whole new ball game for me.. wish me luck.

I wanted to post what I have so far for comments etc. So if you have the time and will to pick my work apart, I would appreciate any insight at this point, before I move on to finalizing. Please be honest rather than polite, my self-esteem can take it If you hear anything that you think needs improvement, let me know either here or there or privately or however. Thanks!

Here is the linky-link:

Oh, an thanks a million to Brent, who already beat you all to it

Mate! This is gorgeous! I'm pretty blown away by it. It's not something I'd normally listen to, but maybe I should start. It's perfect unwinding music.

The sound scape is so vast and open. +follow for sure!

Sorry for gushing, but I can't find anything wrong with it.

I made a quick video for one of the songs for youtube promotion. It is from my current hometown, following the tiny stream that goes through the city, and ends up to the sea. Can almost see Sweden from here

Made it with a standard digital camera from '08 and Windows moviemaker.. Could call it a shoestring budget promo, but main thing is I had fun making it! Hope you guys like it too. At least you get to see a bit where I live, if you're curious (stalker).

Good stuff, Simo, esp title track.

I read the definition of cupcaking - very appropriate. Maybe I'm just a perv but I can't help but feel the word on it's own sounds like something George Michael would be arrested for

Thanks for the feedback <3

And lollers at JP, that's exactly why I loved the word cupcaking, it sounds sort of cute, but can be understood to mean many things.

Oh, and I think there was a hiccup on my application of youtube tags, fixed now and the video should be properly embedded. I blame the late hour and the small screen of the smartphone.
