Review by carlsson (09/09/2003)

This sounds like (end credits from) a movie. The french horn/clarinet at 4:05 reminds me of John Williams, maybe from Far and Away. Partially it also reminds me of Raphael Gesqua's (Audiomonster) Amiga module "The War".

Unfortunately I've never heard Jeroen Tel's original music before, so I can't judge on nostalgic, but the the different themes from several SIDs (isn't it?) melt together very nicely into a 5+ minute musical landscape. Very pleasing!

It seems to be a faithful 1:1 cover of Brennan's tune (or if it is Chopin -- a music search engine reveals that the opening found both in this tune and Ghost'n'Goblins resembles his Prelude No.20 in C minor, which makes sense for GnG as the waltz is said to be inspired by Chopin as well). I'd like to hear some more instruments - maybe adding string arpeggios, some winds or percussion to lift the remix one level further.

As being a musician in a symphonic wind orchestra, I can relate to this arrangement. The sounds may be a little generic, but otherwise I find it promising and could be improved on/extended and used with a real band - maybe a typical marching US high school band who play anything they can get notes for (trust me, I've heard Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade played by marching band).
