[Song Discussion] Military Theme and Development
« on: November 06, 2015, 08:19:56 PM »
(Reviewed by Darkling Nocturnal on The High Lonely Hills).

A dramatic, dynamic and loud song, that can be heard often in the series; only in the last third it's getting a little calmer, just to break through with full power in the finale. It is a real first-class arrangement (so the note will be appropriate), but it's also a little bit omnipresent in the series. Simply, it could be heard too often during the confrontations with Efrafa.



Review by Hawkbit, founder of Fiver's Honeycomb:

6 – Military Theme and Development : As you can expect, this piece was often used during times in the series when the rabbits had to catch or run from Woundwort and the Efrafan patrols. The instrumentation is similar to the Chase Adventure track, full of horns and strings, and is quite loud.

This one is my favourite out of all of the songs used in the series, the Beginning Overture must be my close second, but this one is just amazing! I'm probably alone in this opinion but I'm alone and happy with it, it's really odd in the fact it makes me want to get up and do things.  :cheers

As I said, it was used a bit too often in the series, but it's one of the main reasons, why the score is so great  :holly
