My Commentary:

(Edited January 26th-> Changed one note. Not much of an update)

I managed to get a hold of an orchestral vst and wanted to try it out. So Instead of fixing all the things wrong with my other songs I started on this. It's probably my best Orchestral attempt to date.

Each part is independent and fairly short. They don't flow into each other because it originally started out as an experiment on doing lost woods orchestral style. I liked how it sounded so I tried a few more themes and it grew from there. I then rearranged them and grouped them in the same file and thats whats here.

They're all short because the collection as a whole began to get too long and I had to keep lowering the bitrate to make it under the file size limit. So I had to cut out some of the other themes and shorten the ones I had.

Anyway I'm starting to ramble so the themes are in this order:

1. Hyrule Field (0:00-1:17)
2. Lon Lon Ranch (1:18-2:14)<- Admitedly pretty boring.
3. Kokiri Forest (2:15-2:56)
4. Lost Woods (2:57-3:38)
5. Windmill Theme a.k.a Song of Storms (3:39-4:58) <- Went a bit darker with it this time.
6. Ganon's Theme (5:00-5:51)
7. Temple of Time (5:52-6:44)
8. Zelda's Lullaby (6:46-7:38)

(P.s. Also the volumes pretty low. I have yet to hear this on anything but my headphones and crap moniter speakers, so I'll be making adjustments to volumes and things over time. Sorry for the text wall. :/ )
(I'm always open for suggestions and improvements)

THIS is equally great music as the game itself. GREAT JOB. It all sounds epic! You think you can make each song an individual track?! :)

Pretty Legit Stuff Here

But on to that critique.
I give this an 8 based on the fact that it's really good. As a composer, I realize that it get's a bit strenuous putting so many parts together, but I feel that some really good opportunity arose for you to take effect of some instruments that you did. For instance, in many of the places such as 1:40, there was a great chance for a complete entrance crescendo with the strings building up double octaves with 16th notes. It would be a great way to build Lon Lon up by the middle and then have it die out before the end. I really enjoyed the Lost Woods section due to the use of Percussion. You made sure that they were doing something, and at the perfect place. However, the strings get cut off too swiftly and the build ups with the low brass are horrific. Too loud for my taste. For the last section of the Lost Woods, simply too loud. Enough said. Drop down to a mf for that section. There is only one flaw that I could find in the Song of Storms, and that was that the flutes really could have shown through. Other than that, this was my personal favorite. Ganon's Theme really could have used either less percussion or more. And at the beginning, you should have added a low gutteral noise with a Tuba or such. Temple of Time gets a solid B+, simply sounding easier exempting the solo. Once more on Zelda's Lullaby, the entrance could have been one flute. No reason to be fair here. Excellent use of percussion, and French Horns could have come out a little more than they did. I would have enjoyed hearing the entire piece, but I am very impressed. (4/5)

HexMonkey responds:

Thank you very, very much for the wonderful review. There are a lot of parts I'm not really happy with and you gave some great advice. I'll make sure to incorporate them into future works I may do. Thanks again :)
