DjMokram gets knocked onto 2nd due to the clipping, but I consider that a technical loss.
superjoe30 gets 3rd just for the open hat. :)

Temple of Love (Separate Ways)
1st - MisterCat:
Without a doubt, that guitar (or flute, I dunno) in the distance got me here.
Nice atmospheric work on the pads & delay fxs.
Bass is sooo groovy and fitting in the song.
It has a nice sega genesis era feeling to it.
Little prod issues with volume here and there. Nothin too harsh.
The song is extremely good and also extremely long.
Dunno how you pulled that one off. Congrats.
No need to say more. WIN
2nd - N64:
The piano was not enough. He had to add killer percussion too. And not any random one at that.
THE famous percussion loop from Resident Evil 4, when you fight ganados in Ada Wong's scenario.
There's always something with JH's music. Can't explain, it just draws me in...
It has an adventurous vibe to it, plus the 'Temply' flavor is also all over it.
Relied a bit much on the drum-loop sample here.
But overall great song and clean production.
...and who the heck is Shirley? o_O
3rd - Relik:
I just love the variety of instruments used here.
It manages to mix up the music of an antic rpg temple, with japanese anime and a bit of Noriko Matsueda synth goodness.
An unusual mix of genres and styles, not very easy to digest in one hearing.
But after 2 or 3 listen, I gladfully did. I found the randomness quite pleasant.
I just know that Relik can do way way better, so he only ranks third this time around.
4th - Shael Riley:
That song and the following discussion gave me nightmares for one week!
...no I'm kiddin. ;p
But aside from the nice parody of SoundGarden, I think we'll remember what 'being on sacred ground' mean from now on.
I wish you all a nice temple visit. Please take your time.
See ya next round!
