As good as it gets

(Review for Anvil of Dawn, The: Game rip by JM)

This is one of my absolute favourites. I seriously think that this soundtrack pushed some boundaries considering the (absolutely limited) quality standards of General MIDI. And the compositions. The way they change tempo and rhythm, sometimes starting bombastic, then taking four minutes to "fade out", sometimes starting with mere solo instruments, then continuously rising over five minutes to huge, percussive "orchestrations". As with the "Stonekeep"-Soundtrack I reviewed, if you get a chance to plug these tunes into real synths or samplers, do! They shine all the brighter.

Note: Haven't yet downloaded this rip, the review applies to my own one.
