My all-time favorite

I guess I'm required to go in-depth for this since it is in fact, the best song ever written.

-=)ORCHESTRATION / ARRANGEMENT(=-

Well arranged. Your use of all instruments was amazing. A serious lack of woodwinds, but they really wouldn't be very fitting for this song. Tubular bells and cymbals could have been implemented to a great extent and would have added so much. Timpani also would be great.

-=)MELODY(=-

A great melody and great themes throughout. A great counterpoint for the primary theme. perhaps a more obvious counterpoint for the secondary melody would be helpful as well.

-=)HARMONIES(=-

You implemented pedaling perfectly. Overall, great harmonies throughout. Your ability to use dissonance without sounding bad is absolutely breathtaking.

-=)FLOW(=-

It flowed very naturally, my only concern is the unnatural silence just before 1 minute.

-=)SECTIONS(=-

Very well laid-out, the development of the themes was wonderful.

-=)INDIVIDUAL INSTRUMENTS(=-

Okay, here's where I normally get tired in reviews, especially in long orchestral pieces.

-)Brass(-

In general- Very nice. Worked wonderfully with each other and with the strings.
Tuba- Awesome. Well used in the places it came out. Normally playing pedal notes, but still great.
Trombone- Not even sure you used trombones. :D Oh well.
Trumpet- Great on the melody, great all around.
French horn- I love french horns. Nothing else to say.

-)Strings(-

In general- Wonderful. Created wonderful ideas and carried the song perfectly. Your use of staccato and pizzicato were extremely well placed.
Harp- Great for presenting the idea at the beginning, and well used in the recapitulation. seldom heard in the middle sections, if at all. It would be nice to hear a few notes from it in there somewhere to insure the fact that the harpist is actually alive and not just asleep.
Violin- Wonderful as well. The high notes made for great tension, and the normal notes were simply beautiful.
Viola- Not sure if I could pick out a viola after the exposition.
Violoncello- Not sure I could make one clearly out at any point.
Bass- Same here, I guess I'm just not listening too well.

-)Percussion(-

Not too prominent as a whole, which makes this original. Most fiery songs to rely on percussion to help with the song, this needs very little to accomplish the same thing.

-=)OVERALL(=-
AMAZING, my friend. Hopefully you'll enjoy this review as much as I hated the work it took to write. 10 out of ten, and a 5.

Regards,
MJTTOMB (probably one of your biggest fans)

Good god, man
Thank you so much for this incredible review. I'm honored to get such an in-depth and still quite complimentary review from someone who knows his stuff! For all of you who don't know, MJTTOMB really knows what's going on. If you haven't heard his music, you're missing out.
But thanks again, man. You picked out the orchestration quite well, and you were really able to analyze it very well. Thanks so much for the review :)
