Ahh... this takes me back. I loved the tribal theme of cosmo cannon. The thing I like the most here at what you have going on is that it is unaltered by anything really, you keep the tribal spirit of the song as it was in a tribal-like theme in the game. Not many do that, they try to alter it with different themes which can be good but not really all the time. 10... even. Because it sounds like the game, feels like the game, and is perfect.
It was OK....
The peice itself was ok, but the tyle was way off. Cosmo Canyon was probably one of three tracks in the FF7 soundtrack that I actually liked, it had a distinct tribal feal. It is a piece that you would expect to see indians dancing around a fire, it eventually grows from it's tame start to the climax of the dance. The adaptation you made was more "mesterioys" and just didn't grow, there just wasn't any tension at all, the big ending felt not as "big" if you compare. Now I liked the peice, it just wasn't Cosmo Canyon thats all.
It's good, but it starts out a tad weak.
I've got a strong American Indian backround and I've always liked the influence found in the original version of the track. The dancing bells and the drums really add to that atmosphere, and I think you did very well in choosing what you did. It's hard to tell if you stuck to flutes like the original or went with a string instrument in some parts, and while it starts slightly weak, it picks up a lot at 1:10 with the backround melody emphasizing the beat. Great work.
needed to be faster....
maybe adding a drum solo or something. other than that, good job
