    As usual, the orchestra samples don't sound convincingly realistic, but they do sound GOOD, so you have that going for you.  i wonder if there is a way for you to add more sample changes, phrasing type stuff to it.  Samples are difficult.

    I would like the second part of the arrangement to be more dramatic.  I would love some big bass drums and cymbal/timpani buildups.  The second part sounds too much like the first to me.  Especially if you are trying to get it on OC Remix--you'll have to be more unique and less cover-ey with the arrangement.

    i wonder if the harp needs to be so in your face. especially with it being so plucky.  and probably the least effective of your samples.  i would turn it down a db or two maybe. at least in the solo parts it seems too loud.  Also I wonder if there is more you can do with velocity changes to make it sound more realistic.  i hear ACCENTS, but i don't hear human-sounding performance with getting quieter and louder.  Especially in the harp part, which sticks out, it feels too MIDI.  Try not to copy-paste your performance for that, and vary the midi up.  Most sequencers have a Humanizer if you don't feel like spending too much time on it.

    Exactly this. Very pretty, but I can already hear OCR judges commenting on the mechanicalness of the harp part. I also feel the second part could use some oomph.

    I like what I'm imagining when I hear the tolling bell and the "aahs", but my ears want a more powerful choir and perhaps the slow, solemn bell that does not simply "dings" once or twice, but alternates with "dongs" as a way to build up tension. Just an idea.

    Emotion overload! I remember getting teary-eyed at the end of the game. It didn't even help that I had played the first game before, so I should have known how it would end. I think this line is perfect. What a great way to epitomize such a tragically epic ending.

    I love this song. I've been listening to it ever since it was posted on OCRemix. The fadeout is rather abrupt, but I don't mind that it is a fadeout. In fact, I think it works really great given the title of the song. It seems to contradict itself, like an oxymoron. If this was the intention behind it, then hats off to the poet that you are.

    The very end never really ends. We are the ones fading away.
