Very good, except for one thing.
Overall I really liked this, but I have a feeling that this song is going to annoy people if they have old or crappy speakers. I noticed that the low notes for the main tune that runs from the beginning until 1:20 (I think a xylophone, it sounds like that) sounded strained when I listened to it through my speakers. This makes sense, since in general it sounds like this instrument is more left focused anyway. It wasn't until I plugged in my headset that this went away.
So it's not asked, I'm not using crappy speakers (Just old ones, but they were top of the line when I got them and beat out a LOT of speakers shipped out on computers made today. The last computer I bought, I didn't keep the speakers when I noticed the sound quality was better from these ones), so this concerns me. I'm not really sure if it's something you can fix, though I did notice the problem was GONE when the other instruments came in and the xylophone-esque instrument's volume was dropped. I'd thinking maybe dropping the sound on it for the entire track to a single volume level would ease the problem. However, since I do not know how well this song is made to impact when it is used, I cannot say for certain if this is the best idea.
If I didn't have this initial listening problem, this would've been a ten.
I heard this before (I think), starts out quite magical and well snowy? Then seems to kick in the actiony epicness of it all. *brrr*
Thanks for the awesome review, Dan. It isn't that awesome though, because you didn't put the "L" in front of epicness. Tssk tssk. :P
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
