Zeliard - town (MnP38)

Kat - The snare drum was a bit too harsh and detracted quite a bit from the track. I like all the other instruments though.

I really liked the atmosphere you had going on here. I liked how you sort of threw the "chorus" melody under the bus while keeping the main melody at the front. It pretty much changed the song while still maintaining the mood. A lot of the percussive(I think?) sounds only added to that.
I liked the choice of instruments, but at the same time it just felt sparse at times. It didn't quite speak to me the same way iosphere's did, but it still had a very relaxing pace to it.

iosphere - Awesome groove with the relentless bassline and the well placed kicks, love it. I really like the filtered percussion as well. Is it the Basement Noise soundfont? Some great sounds well used to create a brooding atmosphere.
Trism - Really like the ambient sounds going on in the background, creates a good atmosphere. The saz (think it's a saz?) and guitar sound quality. I like the glockenspiel/electric piano riff, but I feel it's a bit on the robotic side. I think it might've benefited from some variety in note velocities and perhaps seated further back in the mix.

Ghost Town - great instrumentation. It'd be so much fun to hear this fully played with live instruments and with more variation in the arrangement.
The Holy Land of Zeliard - The first few seconds of the intro sounds very good, the flute(?) is very lovely. The snare is way loud, but apart from that about the first 0:42 sound really, really nice. The brass along with the snare (and cymbals) feel quite loud (not just in the mix, but also like they were played too loud for the overall dynamic of the arrangement). The quieter outro is very nice. I like the slow-down. And even with the loud bits, I really liked this, would love to hear this again with some more material added.
deserted town - Really liked this one, I love ambient remixes and this was very intriguing. Good concept. Maybe strays a bit from the MnP path but I thought it was still based enough on the source (at least for my tastes) and close enough to the mood of the original. Reminds me of some of Israfel's stuff up on OCR. It'd be great if you worked this into an OCR submission, it'd be cool to have Zeliard represented in there.
Thanks again for the great round everyone.

Iosphere - Dig the atmosphere u made here. The SFX is very interesting and definitely helped set the mood.
Trism - Its really calming however the only issue I have with this are the notes that plays continuously didn't receive the same love of dynamics as the rest of ur piece.
