Hisayoshi Ogura would be proud!
This definitely sounds like something that Zuntata would make, but that's a good thing. When it comes to subject material, the Darius series is overlooked in many ways. Personally, this seems like a mix between G Darius and Darius Burst. However, that's just me.
Instrumentation: As said before, this is definitely something that Hisayoshi Ogura would make with Tamayo Kawamoto and Yasuhisa Watanabe. Your synths and soundscapes have the very distinct Zuntata sound to it, and I like the use of a breakbeat. I think people on NG should turn to Taito for material for cartoons, remixes, and games. It's too bad that very few gamers remember that company and what they accomplished over the years.
Composition: In addition to having great sound design, your composition was very cinematic and ethereal. I can hear this in many submissions if anyone discovered this. Were you listening to various intelligent* genres in addition to the G Darius soundtrack? (*E. G.: Drumfunk/Intelligent Jungle, Intelligent Dance, and Intelligent Techno.)
Other: This is just another example of a sleeper hit that slipped under the cracks while people were masturbating to Oney and Hans Van Harken sixty-nining each other. (Ok, that's an exaggeration, but I just had to say it.)
-Perfect recreation of Zuntata's sound while being distinct
-Clever use of a breakbeat
-Too few people remember Taito and what that company accomplished.
Overall: Here's a ten from me. (5/5)
