  10. That's definitely unfortunate. Niantic should be willing to opt private property locations out.

  13. The pace was pretty deliberate -- I'd argue plodding -- to start, but we'll see where it goes, as the level of interpretation of the source theme sounds fine. But at nearly 3:30-long at this tempo, it may be a long haul. About 1:30-in, we're a third of the way through, and I'm wondering where this is going, if anywhere. Despite the occasional texture changes, the dynamic curve feels very flat. From 1:58-2:26, some of the higher sustained string articulations strained credibility, IMO; the strings aren't horrible by any means, but there's a flatness in their delivery. 2:32 essentially sounded like a cut-and-paste of :06, just with some (good) string accents underneath. I understand this is meant to fall within a limited dynamic range to begin with, but something's missing here in terms of the energy and dynamics. I'll withhold a vote for some other opinions and see if a musician J is either better able to articulate the potential issues I'm hearing or poised to call me an out-of-touch old man. EDIT (7/8): I'm old. But not that old. I'm not worried about Andrew being able to work something out, but I'm agreed with Chimpa and Gario on their calls. NO
  14. The Cammy voice samples sounded clean, but should have had some effects to better integrate/transition them into and out of the music itself. Right now, they feel tacked on and thus tack-y. There a lack of high-end clarity here that lets all of the instrumentation somewhat mud together, but it's nothing too off-putting. I thought the marching-style drums worked well in terms of the writing, but were too quietly mixed in the background; again, the instrumentation all tended to mud together in the same frequency range, which is putting me at a borderline YES when it should have been stronger. Whether this passes or not, I'd appreciate another pass at the mixing before this was posted, ideally, because the end result was disappointing even if it squeaks by due to the overall arrangement strength. There's still a bit of a vanilla feel to this, and more risks could have been taking melodically to create even more dynamic contrast, but the changes in the beat patterns were solid enough, and the overall creativity of the approach was improved enough that I can get behind it. If the mixing were clearer to better appreciate the part-writing, this would be on strong ground.
