Alright so as promised we will display any reviews that the judges don't feel they want to personally give to the users.. here.
Here are Edgen's reviews!
hamstercake - His Final Act
This entry made me feel pretty good. From the lush instrumentation to the solid sweeping music I felt like I was on another world suiting up for an adventure of a lifetime. There were a few times where the piece got a little bit repetitive in the orchestration towards the end as I wish you took the drums and varied them up. Nice build to the end. Thanks for sharing.
Mrmilkcarton - Lost But Not Forgotten
This one felt like a trailer but could have been beefed up a bit more to really amp up the intensity. I liked the feel of the string and choir elements for the 2nd act. The middle part I started to find a parttern in the music with repeating the melody twice and moving into another section. Overall, I enjoyed how you took me on an adventure with the piece ending with the beautiful piano solo in the end.
XayberOptix - Warped Galaxy
This definitely has the opening feel to an epic space battle. I think the mix could have been a little bit better as the moving strings in the middle seem to settle just in the back. Overall, I solid entry.
Cleverhill - Dream of being best
I liked the feeling of this one. I did... However; I have a cue almost very similar to it and I would venture to say the same chord progression is wildly used in so many songs. It's a safe and feel good sound that can really pull the heart strings. I enjoyed the drums, but I do wish they were built up and varied a little bit more. Thank you for entering.
PeterSatera - The Superbugs Attack
You definitely set the tone with the opening minute of the track, but I wish you could have spent a little more time on the instrument programming. I think you could have put a little more time to really nail the dyanmics of the piece with envelopes to really beef up your samples. When it does kick in, I really could see a wonderful battle. It's not really a dangerous battle, but one you'd expect to see on the high seas perhaps? Sure, that's probably dangerous, but a fun epic war. I enjoyed the feeling at 2:00 min but I wish the drums could be varied a bit more. Great orchestration overall and I enjoyed this very much.
SBB - Sunken City
This was such a vast difference from the other cues as this one really takes you deep into your world. I see drone workers going about their daily lives. Perhaps one has a personality different from the others and watch him as his mind wonders to the heavens above. Definitely a surreal kind of piece. Thank you for entering.
MJTTOMB - Ballroom, 1899
I have to say I'm definitely not a fan of the samples, but I really enjoyed the orchestration. You seem to have a good grasp writing this style of music. I could see you printing this off, handing it to a conductor and orchestra playing it. Find some better samples and you've got a great classical piece on your hands. Thank you for entering the most unique sound of the bunch.
ProudAardvark - The False Memory
I really liked the tones and the chords of this piece and how it made me feel. I could just close my eyes and drift away. Next thing I know I'm waking up to something unsettling as you take me to the next part of this journey. I think you've managed to capture a piece that reflects your inner emotions. You are all over the place in terms of mood and I dig it! Thank you for sharing.
