very nice pacing! the beginning kind of reminds me of a track from Fable...
I love Fable and it's music! It probably had a big impact on my musical style.
Love your compositions. Can't wait till you get some better Brass libraries tho.
Oh yes, brass will definitely be next!
Perfect for halloween
This is a good song overall. I especially enjoy the mallet percussion, the xylophone is a perfect instrument for visualizing skeletons. It sounds like something out of an overture. your hard work definitly wasn't wasted.
My favorite Halloween submission so far this year!
I love the instrumentation, and the dynamics of this piece are truly something to be proud of! :D
all of these instruments sound brilliant, and as a whole; I could seriously imagine this backing a hit series for Halloween time! This song is very reminiscent of Danny Elfman's work in both Nightmare Before Christmas/ Batman, and I realllllly dig it!
You've created quite the masterpiece here my friend, and I honestly don't know if there's much I would change about this; Amazing :)

I'm glad you like it. And you're like the fourth or fifth person to mention Elfman and Nightmare Before Christmas and I never really watched it. I was more thinking about John Williams at some point when I made the minor triad parallels with the flutes and glockenspiel at the beginning. Thanks again for the kind words and this review! :)
(Don't hit me but I also have not watched the first Batman movie. But I know the maintheme!)
The reason another commenter mentioned Christmas is maybe because this is so very very reminiscent of Nightmare Before Christmas, instrumentation in particular. In fact, I did a quick listen to a couple of those tracks just to make sure I didn't recognize a theme. :) There's one place in there that I could swear I recognized a theme/progression from somewhere ... but that could just be because you did such a good job of reproducing the style. :P
I could do without the off-beat cymbal hits 1:30ish ... I understand wanting to add variety, but I just find it distracting. Be confident in what you have and leave out that particular little gimmick. :)
You're the second one to mention Nightmare before Christmas and I swear I never watched it. I really should do it to see how much I accidently copied from it. xD
Thanks for reviewing!
