Listened to "Love"

Very nice textures and melodies. The main hook is excellent too. What would improve the track is more build up as it progresses with additional instrumentation (melodies and bleeps, etc.) in second and yet some more in third verse and a power riff over the ending chorus drive home. This will give the track a movement throughout the timeline.

Vocals are a good compliment for the music, well done.

Overall a very good synth tune.
