I wouldn't have necessarily known this was The Wingless if no one told me, especially considering the very contrasting nature of his preceding submission, which is a testament to his diversity. I've a feeling a lot of people were waiting for a mix like this - a good, kickin' electronica take on the Corneria theme. J.A. Burnett actually mixes in - fairly seamlessly - more than just that in this near six-minute opus, including the title screen theme as well. And while this is largely electronica, it's really of a more soundtrack/hybrid nature, as there's extensive use of string stabs, piano that at times throws some rather daring chords out there, and string pads feature heavily as well. Some interesting comments from the judges - some preferred the first half, which I'd agree is more accessible and has a bit more verve to it, but some also singled the very natural transition between the halves as a highlight. I think we've all been waiting for a Corneria mix to come along that we could feel good about posting for some time, so each of us may have had expectations that weren't totally filled - capitalizing a bit more on the very energetic Corneria theme with some harder-edged synth-rock and perhaps a cutting lead solo, for instance. But, in the end, after listening some more - especially to the second half - I guess this does sound like The Wingless, in that it doesn't make efforts to live up to others' expectations, but instead puts a unique, innovative, even risky spin on some very beloved themes, and ends up with a pretty polished final product that's fresh but recognizable. Recommended.
