I love the spring reverb in the Mario RPG track. Cory! What have you done? You started a new DoD trend. xDDD

BTW the March theme seems cool. I'm not gonna go into spoilers but holy moly!

Listening party tonight? I hope I can stay awake for it! In any case, I'll post some reviews tomorrow.

Reviews:
 
Breath of Fire - A Beautiful Day For Trade
Nice intro, I like your orchestra sound. Not much else to say, this is a pretty simple orchestra + clean guitar song.
 
Final Fantasy 15 - Omnis brutalis lacrima
I'm surprised this is the only FF15 song this month. I think the leads should be louder (or maybe rhythms are too loud?). I like your drum sound and mixing. The playing is nice. Some blastbeats in there, I was never a fan of those.
 
King of Dragons - Treasure in an Old Castle
More MTL. Intro was good but once the drums drop in, I expected them to sound a bit bigger. I think the kick in particular is the weak point. I like the style and the instruments used. Rhythm guitars are pretty good. I don't know if you ran out of time to record, but this song should've been longer, 3:00 - 3:30 with something like a half-time section would've been great.
 
Kingdom Hearts 2 - Back To Home Shores
Nice intro. Orchestra sounds good, but a bit mechanical. Nice combination of orchestra and guitars. Piano could've been more in front. And there's the heavy section. I like the choirs. Decent guitar solo. That was a sudden transition to the 4/4 section. This acoustic part of the song kinda drags. Strings sounded weird in that part right before the flute. Cool outro, but the mixing there sounds cluttered.
 
Legend of Mana - A World Unknown
More orchestra and piano? Nice. I like the atmosphere. This sounds like something that plays during a landscape shot in a movie trailer.
 
Street Fighter II - Planet U.S.A.
SF2 is another game I thought would get more entries. Nice bass sound. I like the thump in the kick, but there's some noticeable compression pumping when the crashes hit. Was that ending part just to get it over 2 minutes? xD
 
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - Portanna: Lúbra Foraoise / Ríocht Sona
I really like the acoustics and flute. I'm a sucker for anything celtic so bonus points there. I'm guessing that everything is played live? I wonder how this would sound with some pipes and fiddle.
 
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars - Weapon Get
Nice bass tone. The drums are a bit repetitive in this first part, some more fills would do wonders here. This section at around 1:00 is really good. 7/8 mixed with 6/8? Pretty cool thing right there, I always appreciate some odd time signatures. The arrangement is pretty good overall.

So, March entries need to be a cover of one of these? Or does it mean any length of time back?

Your submission must cover a track that exists on the DoD website for any past month

Also, I'm pretty disappointed that there's a 2 track medley limit. I thought I'd do a non-anonymous ALT entry that's a mega medley of a whole bunch of vocal tracks from the past and call it "DoD Karaoke Party"

For an ALT you can do that.
