I've waited a long time to hear this get finished, I didn't ever think it was possible for you to sit down and finish a song these days, given how busy you are. But you've given me new hope and faith in you again!
A nice build to start, and then it kicks in at 0:54 some nice instruments to follow. I love the instrument used here, very Metroid. The strings are very nice. My favourite part is at 1:25, I think you could have added more strings and maybe a faint choir too, but I need to realise that this is different from the usual stuff, it's special in it's own way and must be treated as unique.
At 1:53 I feel it should be a little fuller, but the original was very similar to this, so I can't complain. At 2:34 I thought you got lazy and repeated. I was wrong to doubt you, as the piece goes in a different direction at 3:01, and it feels like we're ending now...but again, I am proven wrong...
...4:00 and it all kicks off again, I think at 4:24, you could have made it really special and added higher strings or something, it just seems like we're repeating ourselves. Of course, now comes the fadeout, which is nice, it feels like we're coming down from a high, from this awesome piece of art...from an awesome person, a person I look up to, respect and appreciate.
Thank you for bringing great music to my ears once again. How could I possibly give this anything less than a 10?
Thanks for your review! I really appreciate it. :) I probably wouldn't even continue making music (let alone finishing them) without you.

There IS a faint choir at 1:25. ;( :P
