azura nailed the theme, with style to spare

misael.k themed the nail, with misael and flair

eery used breaks and atmosphere (otherwise this would be a vote for atmospherium)

Johnfn: Insta downloaded. Going onto my smoke break playlist. Probably my favorite song you've done in a long time. Well structured throughout and nothing was too much nor too little. Good form sir.. good form.

obScene: Perfect music to bring tears to your eyes during a beautiful moment. At the same time, listen to this when you're sad and it makes you feel okay about being sad.. Great melody work and harmonization.

DarkShadow: Awesome solos with both the leads and the basses. Chaotic yet completely structured to sound like it so the listener can't ever get lost. Great song.

A-zu-ra is too powerful he must be stopped. 3xosc metal must become a new genre. But seriously this is one of the most amazing things I've heard in OHC in a while.

eery because I don't think he could write a piece I wouldn't like. the song is good as it is unique.

DucksUnlimited because I love the ambience. I was just in that mood I guess. The last melody, while a little wandery, actually expresses something very nice.

(more mentions in order of how much I liked them)

DDRKirby(ISQ) for the best title and reusing that crowd sample from ecstasy of life. nah jk. DDRKirby(ISQ) for being DDRKirby(ISQ)... that sounds about right. The only reason I didn't vote for this is because the bass really dominates the song and blocks out the melody. I feel like it would have been a lot more enjoyable with a quieter bass.

obScene for the beautiful adaption of Terra's theme. Plus more!

Trancient is the chord progression master.

Atmospherium for the amazing mixing and metalllll

codekk for dem chords. Also, I really like the sound of simple sine waves.

eery - your entry was really nice, really suited the theme.. The tone slides and sampled breakbeat (i'm assuming) made it something unique.. I loved the instruments you used.

Darkshadow's - Loved the irregular rhythm. And all those contrasting instruments... This is such a complex piece considering you had one hour to make it..

General Mumble - nice ebb and flow, so many subtle layers creating an eerie mood.

Trancient - Wow this is excellent, loved each section and how you blended them together with cutoff slides. i wanted the 'eeeiiiiuuuuuuu' synth to have a melody of its own, it would have really stood out.

cjthemusicdude - this track has a nice feel. I like the interplay between the melody instruments. Also, nice changes in percussion.

Ducksunlimited - nice ambient track, i like the ebb and flow of the different layers. Nice free form, and the gradual adding of layers.

Johnfn - Amazing how you fit so many details in 90 minutes... The track really flowed well evey with all those details. With the melody that goes G-F-E you might want to change the chord to C major when you hit the e.. just a suggestion.

Tbh everyone's entries were really strong!!
