Pretty good, Coopy ^_^

I like the feel of the piece...it gives it the ambient "creeping through a graveyard whilst kicking ass" style.

The one thing I have against this though is it sounds like a long intro...maybe like you intended to have it burst into something bigger, but it just sounds a little empty...

The piano sounds pretty good, but sometimes a little empty..though its not track-ruining...

I cant see the edits from the original, but that's not a bad thing, though, the tracks pretty amazing.

I think a song from Altered Beast with such serious yet cool stylings is rare. A very well done job here to orchestrate it, I can't find anything to fault it. Very good work coop.

Awesome.

Like is mentioned, some of the sounds aren't top of the line, but the arrangement is magnificent and more than makes up for any faults in the piece.

Plus, it's an awesome theme from one of my fav games. If they made an Altered Beast film, this is what the score would include.

My only real question for the Coop is: Why are all your pieces so low in volume?

A MUST DOWNLOAD.

Maybe this isn't my bag of tea or something, but I thought it was pretty mediocre. (No offense Coop! ) It just seems to sort of wander. I've never heard the original, and maybe that's why I can't feel the movement of the piece. I don't get any emotions out of listening either. But music isn't meant to please anyone.

I have yet to see one remix done by an actual orchestra. Otherwise this is pretty good. The reason I make this point is that it doesn't carry a weight that a real orchestra could. Though, I must say that such low-budget artists like us cannot afford to get a real orchestra or do not have the clout to get an orchestra or a choir to do such.

This is very good with the resources you got and I must say you did a great job!

This was a great mix a year ago, and it's still a great mix. Easily my favorite of yours. Keep it up Coop.

Surprisingly (or not), the god of nice work is a remixer as well! Anyway, now to the song.

Very different from DJP's version of it, with a piano lead and a minimized orchestra for support. It's a piece that seems to take itself seriously, but to me it wanders a bit from its purpose (whatever that may be). Nice song, but not among my favorites.
