Took a chance on this and the music is quite enjoyable. Not familiar with the composer or his other works.

Samples sound nice.

It is rather nice, I've had it for a few weeks now. Haven't REALLY sat down and listened in great detail but I will soon. The orchestrations are strong, albeit MIDI in execution (if this guy were working anywhere but the US that probably wouldn't be the case!). I'd be interested to hear what he can do going forward with more money and resources.

Speaking of money and resources - Check out the trailer for the film. Yikes! If you can't afford to make Lord of the Rings, don't try and match the scope of those and comparable films!

Yes, the trailer is cringe worthy! As far as the music, it needs a little pruning here and there. I suspect there's a solid 45/50 minute playlist here. It drags a little in spots.

Thanks for the advice on that, I'll listen with that in mind.

Bump for Christmas! Wonderful release, and probably virtually unknown around here.
