I truly thought this was fantastic. If it isn't any trouble, could you send me the Sheet Music for this? I'd truly appreciate it.

I found it monotonous and boring. It sounded pretty good at first, but then you just used piano and strings synths for EVERY INSTRUMENT!

I don't mind if the timing is off or anything, but your composition is wrong in the notation department. The part where (in the original) the dulcimer synth plays and the second flute solo, you missed a few notes entirely. The background music, instead of switching to accommodate the lead parts (as in the original) just looped so the dulcimer solo didn't harmonize correctly with the background. That shit made me cringe a bit. Lastly, you didn't use any of the notes that fade-in, but that's ok, because you used a bass line to fill the gap.

I don't mind that you omitted the percussion, because that is a stylistic choice.

The mixing is alright. Nothing too super weird. The dulcimer solo was a bit quiet, but whatever. Who cares, right?

I think that you need to go back, listen intensely closely to the original song and try it again. I'd suggest bringing in more different instruments so it doesn't sound so bland and monotonous.

This is a wonderful ode to my favorite OoT Temple. While peaceful, this mix gives it a feeling of eeriness. I love it.


this temple has the same features as the element it possesses. water has always been a puzzling substance to me. without it, you die. but too much of it at one time can also kill you. it moves and mesmerizes me just like the temple does. i like how this melody sounds "lighter" in tone than the original. good job.

This temple was quite a puzzlement for me when I first saw it. I've always loved this temple right along with the Twilight Palace from the Twilight Princess and Gods Tower from Windwaker. Thanks a lot for the review! :)

By far on my list 3rd fav temple/dungon

I love the music of the water temple and you did a great job with this remake, it seems to be a bit more uplifting than the orginal. Just a request, try something with either the spirit temple or the forest temple, you dont have to if you dont want to. 5/5 10/10

JakesFable responds:

I'll look into the Forest Temple. That is also one of my more favorite more mysterious songs in the whole game. But thanks a lot for the review! :)
