This is such a lovely piece of Classical music at it's best some thing to unwind with at the end of the day ..

The title of this orchestral/fantasy music says everything. It's really an epic piece of music with great feelings, dynamics and song writing. Why not 10 points for this? Awesome music - just ... Gopher!

In the very beginning, the typical influxity of piano and strings vibes with one another with this epic feeling. A fantasy-tune, vivacious melodies of great progressive in the sake of powerful themes. A full account of melodies, chords, percussions and ambient background-feelings. Everything is nicely ordered, limpid notes are almost perfectly hitting each other in full lineal at the end. Breaks are made with calm, cheesy melodies and unique background. Much great, and talented music. But the end is somehow missing it's calm feeling, even if the strings make a nice accomplished touch. I liked the song very much. Technically, there are nothing specially you can put your finger on. Some samples should have been more luxurious, but overally the samples are well. As told before, the end could've been treated better. Either, the composer could make the powerful feeling to last through out the song, or he could maintain the calm-ness to a really 'romantic' ending (as I say it). Awesome tune: great ideas, maybe not the most original, but well built song!
