The quality of sounds is top notch, as well as the attention to detail (frets can be heard, etc). However, the repetitive composition is a bit of a let down. I prefer more catchy themes than very good samples.

Ambient clean music with a touch irish folklore with analog sound.

A very high quatity fantasy track, in all ways! What you expect from a fantasy song, you can find it in this piece - great composing and samples! Soo many downloads canĀ“t lie :-)

Absolutely brilliant. Catchy melody, quality samples, fun to listen to. It's a medieval fantasy song built on an almost flamenco beat, with some modern touches to give it energy and power. It's divided into 2 parts with similar but not identical melodies, but the differences are subtle rather than jarring.

It scores a 10 because the composer wasn't content to just make a good song; he added a few touches that I would never have even thought of. For example, to make it sound more realistic and authentic, he actually added fret noises to the guitar! Pure genius. Little touches like that are what make this stand out above the rest.

A very interesting piece with some cool instruments included! I love the peaceful, relaxed tone. The beat is easy to follow, but not too intrusive or strong because of the different instruments used. The bird sounds add a sense of imagination to the song and there's a nice plot throughout. Very nice work!

A very variataing and powerful song by Dipa of ramjam. The guitars in the beginning is very proffesional. So is the flutes and clarinets later on. With very nice melodies, changing from soft to powerful and a great atmosphere I decide without no doubt to give this song 10 points. High quality samples (a plus for making the most himself). Great arrangement. The song would fit nice in a Robin Hood movie , hehe.
