Complexity of Light's Little Brother Karmeleaux
This is definitely worth a look if you like Complexity of Light and/or Prog Rock in general. Like most prog songs, it's probably going to be hard to get a good impression from the demo because the first minute is mostly them building up the later awesomeness.

This song slowly builds up from the sustains, throwing simple but fun rhythms in between them for a while. As this starts to get old, it changes rhythms.

Unfortunately, the rhythm it changes to is a G-G-(pause) repeat deal, which is not very fun for someone like me. Luckily, it has a little fill in there, and is over not long after it began.

Then comes the first solo, which is short but surprising and could fail some people out if they're not ready. Return to intro sustains, then:

Your standard 'prog runs around the fretboard that aren't HO/POs which is a bit frustrating.' It's all a manageable speed to strum and it's fun movement, but it definitely feels like it could have benefited from a few HO/POs in there somewhere. This goes through a few different rhythms, then:

Second solo, which is longer but much simpler. We go to a build-up, then a fun single-note rhythm that varies, then another build-up.

Now, if you've read all of this (poor fool), you're probably wondering how this warranted a five-star from me. Simple:

The rest of the song is entirely HO/PO scales. It's an absolute blast from this point on, my only complaint is it's never long enough. It made the dollar absolutely worth it alone to me, and considering I enjoy most of the rest of the song, I'm sure it'll wedge itself into my guitar play time in both the short and long term.
