There's a reason why I hesitate to label something as epic---it's so that I can say it for a ReMix like this! If this is the last Dark Souls ReMix you want to do, at least you blew us out of the water.
The dense textures could have easily washed out the mix, and the choir could have felt cheesy or made this sound like any other overly straightforward symphonic piece, but you made it work.
The apparent energy stayed fairly constant for the most part, and most of the changing dynamics were in the addition and removal of textures, rather than the variation of the core rhythm, which is probably the only critique I had about this.
Kinda reminds me of Phantasy Star Online, crossed with some of the Mega Man Battle Network internet themes. Some nice reverb going on here, and despite the obvious drum loops, I like the atmosphere and there is some reasonable care going on with the realism. Was somewhat disappointed with the fade-out, but that's a minor thing.
Overall, I did enjoy it and would recommend it as good chillout music, or background music, say, while studying.
Hey, I think this sounds pretty good! The accompaniment sounds reasonably polished, and Chris's violin sounds great.
The first and probably only major crit that comes to mind is the vocal performance. The singer (JoyDreamer?) noticeably takes a breath in the middle of phrases in such a way that it distracts me from the rest of the track (having taken 6+ years of choir, breath control is extremely important). It just sounds like she runs out of breath in the middle of a phrase and then quickly takes in another breath. Those might have been possible to cut out during editing and still result in natural-sounding phrases.
Other than that though, two thumbs up from me.
We've all made fantastic progress and strides during the Albums' Life Cycle, but we are reaching a close !!
I apologize for being behind on the October 10th deadline, this is partially due to the event that took place in my Hometown Las Vegas on October 1st.
The deadline for the Finalized WAV has been extended to November 30th for the completion of the Album.
Whatever we've got on that date we will be moving forward with :).
Thanks for the hard work everyone!!!
