I'm not entirely sure why, but I'm reminded rather heavily of the soundtrack for either Ghost in the Shell (2, I believe) or Akira (though, not because of the artist's name). Either way, I think this track is pretty rockin'. I agree with djp and the judges, in that I would like to hear more. It's just feels like it could grow into some super epic territory with a few more minutes. Anyway, nice work. I hope to hear more of your stuff on OCR. :D

Agreed - there's some missed kickass opportuniy, but I do think the way you have it is pretty good all the same. Very suspenseful. Good job!

A very cinematic remix. I feel like this should be put in a suspenseful movie or other. Anyway, good job--it sounds nice!

Well, overall, nice work on this memorable piece.

I think the intro sounded a little clunky (i.e: not well thought-out/put together).

At 1.07-1.14 and at 2.06-2.10, I can almost swear that I can hear 'Wutai' in the upper strings. Intentional or not, it made for a good surprise.

The use of a Grand Pause (circa-0.20) was very dramatic. But, because of its use at the beginning, the end left me wanting (read: expecting) more.

As I said, nice work overall and I truly hope you make more mixes like this, but with some length to them.

There's a nice foundation here but I'm definitely not a fan of how short it is.

It's a good piece. I like the atmosphere it creates and the general feel of it. As mentioned by others though, I was a little let down by how short it was as I felt it could go on for a while longer. Otherwise though a good track.

I am definitely liking what I am hearing here, but dang is it short.

I'd love to hear what you have in store next, but this one is not enough for me to really get into.

This was so good to listen to but it was to short which was a bummer.

What's awesome about this is that it's subtle in it's arrangement, but the sense of urgency remains hovering as you listen. I could easily see this building into some awesome cut scene, or something where the suspense keeps building. Nice work, but it would be great to have this have a real climax somewhere (I found that to be what was lacking).
