    I love it man, i just love it. Sounds like you worked long and hard on it! Some of those chords changes in the middle are really attention grabbing. Very good work! Mind if I ask what you used to make it happen?

    Gotta tell you - I like that and the sound mostly. What time zone would put that in?

    It sounds almost like incidental music from either Guys & Dolls or An American in Paris to me.

    Great stuff as always, Aaron! Like the second half. Very "early elfman"

    Rave: It's a great piece, this really shows that believability comes from the composition just as much as the sounds (if not more).

    Rant: I'm annoyed that every time there's a root-fifth type of bass line or some playful brass parts in a piece, Elfman is always invoked. He didn't invent the style, there are tons of other illustrious composers who used that compositional technique way before him, and many others who continue to, and yet the guy who sang "Weird Science" has to take the credit? There are more composers out there than Zimmer and Elfman people....go out there and listen to some Gershwin, or even some Sondheim...gasp!!!
