Great work guys!

My vote went to Chernabogue this time!

Without going into detail, my reason is that his melody lingered in my memory the longest.

I wish I had more time to write about the songs because they were all great. I might come back here and write about them in a few weeks.

It was a pleasure listening!

Sorry if my criticisms seem harsh. Just keep in mind that none of the songs I heard were bad.

*2nd Place: aensland's My dearest - This one was really hard to tap my foot to. A lot of the sounds kind of blends together, which sounds kinda clustered. I really liked the melody though, and with some volumes / instrument tweaking I think this peice could be even better.

*Chernabogue's Abandon Yourself - Apologies, but this just sounds really generic. The melody isn't very catchy, and the instrumentation isn't anything unique. Not anything bad, but not a song I'd intentionally listen to if it were on a game soundtrack.

*3rd Place: BMC_War Machine's Dust to Dust - This sounds most fitting for an ending/credits roll. The song not starting until about 40 seconds in was a little odd too. The guitar and violin just feel too intense for a menu theme imo.

*1st Place: Dracula9's Iniquity's Raiment - This really reminds me of Final Fantasy VI. The melody was catchy without being too repetitive. The buildup and drop is perfect, and never gets too intense. The backgrounds noises sound a little cluttered in a few places, but keep a good balance throughout most of the peice. The sounds used for percussion are perfect. 10/10, would pause more than often.



Thank you to all who participated! I enjoyed listening to these quite a bit. This one was definitely very close, and was difficult to judge.

*Remember, these aren't the final scores. They still have to be added to the community poll.

The clustered sound, yes yes, it must be organ, too wide for its own good

Thank you for your feedback and your judgement.

First Place: aensland and Dracula9
I'm ok with the draw, because D9 can outmeme me really bad if we're doing an untie voting.
