I usually don't give 5 stars, but, bloody hell, this song more than deserved it.
Vocals 10/10: I really liked your voice work, there was enough emotion without detracting from the techinique. How come I never came across one of your other vocalized songs is a complete mystery to me.
Lyrics 9.5/10: The lyrics are beautiful and convey well the overall japanese folklore feel of Okami. The 0.5 I detracted from a perfect score aren't actually your fault, they're a consequence of the translation proccess from japanese to english. Japanese can be a painfully vague language at times and that kinda reflected in some tenses in your translated lyrics. It will always be a problem with translated music and texts.
Instrument Choices 10/10: I simply loved that, I wanna say, accoustic guitar solo. The combination of modern and classical, ocidental and oriental instruments made the orchestration for me. Magnificent.
I want to finish this boring review by saying thanks to Step for pointing me here. I also would like to thank the whole team for sharing such a marvelous work with us. Keep it up, the audio portal needs more amazing collabs such as these.
Sorry for my english.
