Beautiful. Simply beautiful. If it were me, I'd end it with a restatement of the "simpler" version of the theme just to bring the thing full circle, but that's just me. I honestly can't find any reason not to post this.

Yes

lets see, there must be some reason why this is here.

Dont see any reason yet

Pros:

PROFESSIONAL PIANO

YAY I LOVE PIANO

TAKE THAT Bach's Goldberg Variations

Cons:

uh....

uh....

too short, I guess. Yea, could have been longer.

So many sub-par remixes coming in. This was my ray of sunshine on the Gondor battlefield as the ghosts ships sailed ashore with naught but my allies.

I doubt anyone will even understand that statement.

ANYWAY YES

This is one of the best things we've ever judged. This is a YES without a doubt.

Wonderful. :D

Excellent mix.

I know it's locked, I'm just adding my 2 cents.

(This was another tune that kept me sane during the long trip during family holidays)

Ya know... I wasn't going to say anything about this originally. I listened to it, heard that it was decent, and decided, "ok, these guys made the right choice (as if there's a right or wrong here) in saying Yes unanimously." But then I listened to the original. And then I played the original. I might have shit for music-reading ability, but my ears can tell me what my eyes can't.

This song had a beautiful chord progression to it. I know, I get on everyone's case about this. But the original was so beautiful. The bass was so appropriate for the melody and chord progression.

This is the AOL of chord progressions, folks. This arranger has made the chord progression so user-friendly that it's lost all of it's beauty, at least to me. Great dynamics, and flawless playing. That's all I'd give this song. The variation really isn't all that varied. The melody doesn't change. In fact, the more I listen to it, I realize there is so much more that COULD have been done with it. Try different time signature. Try minor. Theme and variations aren't supposed to be half-assed.

But the slaughtering of the chord progression bugs me more than anything else about this song. Too much 1-4-5 for a song that originally had so much class. I realize it's already been voted for and was unanimous, but I really just could not let this go without saying something. Maybe I'm an ass, but I think "maybe" is being too lenient.

Had I been voting, there would be a fat:

NO here.
