The strings were very subtle and well-phrased, and the horns were nice. The final section has some chord stacks that seems a bit bright, and perhaps out of place (using chord language that didn\'t \"square\" with the rest of the piece, maybe??). Overall I enjoyed it, and listened and watched several times through, hearing a new, pleasing detail each time. That\'s a sign of good work, in my book.
Since the temptress struck me as manipulative, I cast a darker shadow over her \"affections\" and made our hero perhaps a bit too heroic.

I didn\'t make the cut either, so perhaps they were looking for something more along the lines of Gilligan\'s Island or Hawaii 5-0. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
