Nutritious can be really surprising when he wants to be. I love his orchestral stuff, but it's great to hear him be able to write in all sort of genres with success. I love the energy of this one, and the live sax is a really nice touch. Sometimes the mix feels a little crowded, but it's not that big of an issue. Nice work!

I felt kind of iffy about this track. It's understandable though, this is an amazing debut of a new style of songwriting, so con-freaking-grats on doing this well!

I think the times when it worked the best were when the orchestral section was in the foreground and the electronica was playing more of a supportive role, things felt very dynamic and fluidic, too bad this really only happened towards the end. Still though, this beats the pants off anything I could dream up to do with the track, and for that you get a seal of verification as part of the EarCheck sound diet system.

Yeah, okay. I'll stop trying to be clever.

Another Nutritious track in the least reviewed tracks on the site makes me :(

Nutritious needs more love people!

His first Electronic remix on the site huh... I gotta say, the drum work on this one is crazy and fantastic, awesome job. Your fusions of classical and Electronic really works well and gives a rather unique soundscape that I can only describe as epic. Production here isn't flawless - there are some piercing leads in there, like the sax and that opening synth, altho the latter isn't as bad.

Pretty awesome stuff man, I dig it! :D

When I heard Nutritious had a song of his featured on the Gears disc of the Xeno project, I was pretty shocked, cause up til that point I'd only heard straight-orchestral material from him. This a shockingly-well-executed change of pace for him, though I do like how he worked in his usual orchestral style into the breakdown sections of the song. The sax was a real nice touch too ;-)

Could've swore I commented on this - maybe it was to Justin directly though.

This is an approach to the source material that I didn't expect, some drum & bass action with a synth guitar paving the way. My only real gripe with the song is that it is too short! I felt like more could have been done with it to make it feel more complete, such as maybe varying the tempo with a marching section before launching into something else. That ending is too unsatisfying for me :( .

The use of the sax in the song was a nice touch to vary things up though. The song as it is is a solid job all around (minus that ending!).

That electronic opening was pretty damn cool. Lots of action and energy out of this one with it's electronic drum and bass beat, with a sweet breakdown in the middle. Wonderful use of sax as well. It feels like it's short even though it really isn't, but I guess that's just how good it is. Love that synthy guitar.
