A short, modern theme for dramatic investigation.

I may add more to this track in the future if I feel as though it is needed, so stay tuned. I hope you enjoy this track!

Great job, though I tend to think of music like this as a hybrid between classical and electronic, I enjoyed it a lot. The piece loops beautifully, and I had no trouble conjuring up an image of a helpless victim trying to evade some serial-killer psycho. Can't ask for much more than that!

Bosa responds:

Well, I would declare you a madman, but that is beside the point. I too had the same thought as you whilst designing this piece.

This really shows that you have the ears of a composer!

I think Rick Marin had his head on straight when he contacted you to do music for Primal War. Plus, you are the king of Newgrounds' Classical Music section, although you now have competition from Solus Lunes, Stephan Wells, and Papkee. You should consider teaming up with other NG users. (I suggested you to Xionico and Maelstormm.)

Instrumentation: It's obvious that you must either A) be classically trained or B) listened & studied the right material because your usage of strings, percussion, and brass were excellent. With that being said, I suggest you expand your instrument roster to include reeds, woodwinds, and world-related instruments to help keep things fresh.
Composition: The melody that you had going set a powerful yet down-to-earth atmosphere. Plus, the rhythm adds to that brand of exhilaration. I can definitely hear this in several flash submissions already. Of course, if you do decide to add on to this, I would recommend creating a backup in case something goes wrong.
Other: There's not much else that I can comment on here really considering that it's an original.

The Good:
-Great melody
-Excellent tone
-Nice composition
-Fitting instrumentation

The Bad:
-Nothing really

Overall: Bosa, here's a ten from me. (5/5)

Bosa responds:

Thank you. It's good to read such in depth reviews as this. Although I think I am one of the worst the audio portal has to offer as far as classical is concerned, it is still very encouraging to read your review and see such depth in defining your evaluation of my song. Thank you for the encouragement, and I hope to hear from you on my other tracks as well.

This is amazing. I would love to hear a longer version.

4.5 out of 5

Bosa responds:

Thanks a lot. Unfortunately I haven't found enough time to really pour myself out into music like I used to.

This has real potential, I think you should expand on it. It is a tad too short for the kind of thing you would do with music like this. As a loop, this would do quite nice because you can't tell where the transition is, so therefore it wouldn't sound loopish, but like a full song when in actuality it really is a loop.

If you're going for a whole song though, you should expand on this. 5/5 10/10

Bosa responds:

Thanks man. I do need to start expanding and spending more time on my music -- that's the only way I'm really going to improve.

Thanks for sharing. Always enjoy your work - great stuff.

Bosa responds:

Thank you, man. I appreciate your review.
