Its such a good song keep up the work

Paint it black is a personal favorite of mine and this was done very well.

NOT enough depth in the music,2.5 Stars yo!

Beautiful....But also somewhat a bit epic.

What's strange is the original sounded nice. But this one makes it sound epic. slightly. But it is actually a beautiful piece even with the epic feel to it. Nice job!


Love the origninal, and this is great too

I dont see why people all call this too upbeat. To be fair I will say the trumpets during the chorus may have been, a little bit too high pitched, maybe try a different instrument. But in general, this is an even darker tone than the original. So I spent a moment to get the original, and this up on separate windows. I did notice at one point it does get out of sync with the original being faster. And it does end earlier. But mixed together it sounds kinda good :D
At points this is darker, and at others, the original is darker. It evens out in the end. But in general, this is darker, which is expected in an instrumental.

So after looking into each chunk of the songs, the trumpet there is replacing that high tone guitar in the chorus, and has every right to be there.

Good work. Keep it up.
