Nice work. I liked also liquidwind and Shadix and okay I confess Biznut's was way too good too just because it was so fun.

I voted for the three ones that fit the theme and were nice in instrumentation/orchestration. A lot of you did nice things here but I don't think that many of them sound very "cold" and "snowy", hence my selection.

just64 - Just a really good song, it's nice to listen to.
liquid - One of your great ambient things.
usa - Sounds like one of liquid's songs! It's great.

Honorable mention:
Bren - Really cool, reminds me of old school game music.
DDRKirby - Cool and trance-y

BrandonS - Crazy Uncle
Nice use of positioning! Hahaha, best guitar riff/chorus ever.

Stuff of Legends - Frostbite ~ The Ballad of John Franklin
Good stuff! Synth in the background is great, and nice snare too!

Xerol - Lost
Interesting! But somehow I'm not quite as big a fan of this one as your other entries, I think. I can't quite put a finger on it.

Bren - The (other) Snow King's Land
Oh god someone took me to happy land. That synth is so characteristic, I'm interested in the details of how you make it now. (though i'm sure it's pretty simple) I'm not a fan of the percussion but everything else here is fine.

Obtuse - Grooving in the Frigid Cold
Oooh yeah, this is groovy. Nice layering here; the higher trebly chord synth -really- adds to the snow atmosphere. Not a big fan of the melody at 1:00, but the rest of the song is really great.

Kaxon - Snowy Mashup
You could really do a lot more with the percussion here--that's the main thing here.

sci - Welcome to Kanadaland
Neat as always. Panning on the delay of the stringy guitary instrument is much appreciated. 1:02 is like whoooooaa. Highlight of t he song was the first 15 seconds. Some drum fills would have been killer here.

Suzumebachi - Winter Wonderland
Oh damn, sweet. The shiny arpshine shineyarp in the background is what's keepin this from being tropical island music, haha. Actually, that instrument is REALLY nice. gj (even if it's just a preset 9_9).

Arcana - It may be cold (sometimes) but it's my h
unst unst. I wish the arp weren't so subdued and the kick not quite so weak. Maybe the growling bass sidechained. Dunno. It's also kind of bass-heavy in general, lots of room for beautiful treble sounds! Though I guess that makes it a bit "colder" ^^;

ProjectSpam - Under the Avalanche
Whoa panning. Whoaaaaaaa panning. Whooooo! This is that game music where you're stuck in some room and have to find the shiny object in the corner that'll help you get out. =Very= nice instrumentation here. And dude, the panning is freaking me out xD

just64helpin - A Brisk Tune
How can you call it "brisk" when it's almost 3 minutes long? o_o; Omg arps. Even the bass is like an arp. o_o The percussion is really dry; otherwise this is fun, if a bit repetitive.

soundofjw - Get off my Sno-Cone you popsicle Bitch!
So peaceful! I really love the intro of this; I was really disappointed at 0:29 because I liked it so much =X. But your lead at 0:43 saved the day xD. Really nice changeup at 0:56, and good transitions overall.

liquidwind - 975313579
Groovy drums--match very well with the pad texture, though somehow I feel like you could put in a -tiny- bit more work into them. Perhaps a bit more variation and a light fill or two?

Usabell - Glittering Snowscape
First 20 seconds = 1st place vote. Section after that = Compo over. Damn you and your exquisitely perfect bell sounds! That oboe is pretty sweet too. What, piano too!? Holy crap, this is amazing. The background wind is a really nice touch too, though somehow it's a little bit too..."continuous", if you get what I mean. shit.

Shadix - The snows of time
Whee!~ fun entry! This is "the fierce battle is over, let's talk to all the happy villagers now". Well, until 0:32. xD I didn't even notice the choral sounds in the background on my first listen.

OCRE - The Boring Frigid Norse
Yay pianoz! This is the beginning of a vg ending theme. But only the beginning D:

Biznut - Canadian Bacon
DIRTY OF THE LOUDNESS! LET'S CHOMP SOME BACON MUTHAFUCKAS. Hahaha, this one was a good lol. Changeup at 1:24 was another lol, haha yesssss.

Some really diverse entries as usual.

1. Beautiful atmosphere, great arrangement. Not sure what else to say. First pick easily.

2. The intro really made it for me. Really Superb atmosphere again and whilst I feel the main section veers away from the theme a little, it was still pretty cool and energetic and had enough "snowy" elements like the bells to justify second pick.

3. Cool percussion and the "mysterious" twist really sets it apar from the other entries.
