In kinda interested in hearing what you guys think by now…
We’ve gotten all but one track for season 3 now, so think we’re at an okay point to give our judgements.
I personally think they’re making good music, but it’s not for KI.
The Tusk theme is epic as hell (except for the out of place electronic sounds)… I love that theme, also for KI
Rash’s theme it awesome (although I wished with all of my heart it had way more MIDI)… but for some reason I don’t feel like it fits KI enough… maybe it’s less dynamic in a way? Not sure
Kim’s theme again I like, although I feel that except for the Asian parts, it’s pretty generic…
The rest of them… well…
Think they’re all pretty generic tracks that does not fit KI one bit… especially Raam and Arbiter’s tracks… they’re slow as all hell, and don’t really pack any kind of punch at all :’(
And the Mira theme would have been awesome, if again they didn’t mix in the out of place electronic sounds.
I know it sounds like by now, that I’m against electronic sounds, but I’m not at all… I love several of Celldwellers own tracks, I love drum’n’bass, I like dubstep, I like Techno, even some hardstyle… and there’s plenty more electronic stuff I listen to.
But if you don’t know when to stop with putting electric "wup wup"s into music where it doesn’t belong, I guess my honest judgement would be, to keep to what you’re good at, and leave something like KI, where you’re supposed to be good at MANY genres (both mixed and alone), to someone better.
I was one of the people saying that I was happy we had new blood for this season… not because Mick wasn’t good, but because it seemed like he either ran out of ideas, or more likely, didn’t have enough time, to make it as epic as the first season.
