Dark Souls - Gwyn Lord / Cinder (PRC293)
Mar 30, 2015 Hollow
Lonesome King - the repeating 3 notes on the bottom felt repetitive, it was nice in 1:20 when it finally changed. The soundscape was kind of generally bare, but I felt like the few instruments used were used well and it was a nice arrangement.
Atmospheric Cinder lord 2 - some nice ideas in here, I like the effects ideas and drum beat, I think it just needs work production-wise. maybe it's the mixing, or samples? I'm not sure. maybe add layers to the drums.
The First Flame - nice arrangement. I think I understand what you mean when you say it's more bright than you envisioned. It's a generally dark-sounding track, but I think the lead instrument makes it sound bright. It still fits well with the track.

Esperado - I like the part starting around 1:15 a lot, those synths really work very good with this source.
Gercr - The intro and the other part are two different parts, but I agree that there's some connection between those sources. I really like the piano(?) in the background, it works very well with the guitar.
Hollow - This version is very aggressive compared to the other songs, but all the added stuff is a nice addition to the source.
Mark Sparling - The paino works good here. There's much stuff in the song and I like the variation in the last part.

supercoolmike: I really like how sparse this arrangement is. The pizzicato strings are really nice. The timpani is a great touch. I would like to hear this build a little bit more at the end (maybe some chords from the strings, or even a harmony line to compliment the melody). That being said, I really like how you add instruments playing the melody in unison as it goes on. The instruments are balanced and mix well together.
gercr: I love the sound of the background here. The piano and strings are mixed really well. I feel like the guitars stick out a little bit too much and don't blend with the other instruments as well as they could. I really like the "talking guitars" idea, but I feel like it made it harder for you to really lock in with the beat at times.
Hollow: I love the arrangement of this. It's almost like prog rock. The mix could use some work though. I'm not really a fan of that guitar sound. Maybe add a little more reverb or delay to help it blend in the mix.
