This is so beautiful.

This is amazing. You really are giving a good tribute to David Wise's favorite composition. Also, have you ever considered doing an arrangement of Fear Factory? You could do such a great version of it, i know!

nailed it 5/5
this is gonna carry me to sleep tonight and tomorrow night, and the next night

Brought me back to my youth days of throwing controllers at wall and screaming at the T.V...anyway this and Gang Plank Galleon were always my favorite songs from DKC. The added synth, drums, guitar, etc enhance it even more than it already was. I find it amazing that Rare was able to convey the theme of water through this song. Meaning that right when you hear this song, you automatically think of water.

Good times

Reminds me of the good times I had playing the game but the aquatic level music always made me feel so weird and strange when I hear it. It kind of had a creepy feel to it I think. Remake of it brings good times though, it was a fun game indeed.

The synth sounds really nice for bringing out all the notes I hear. The guitar you kind of hear makes you think of an 80s opening movie too. The bass line seems solid and nicely done. The flute was a nice touch. Drums are simple and help the beat move along.

Overall, nice piece.
