Made me laugh. Trying to imagine a tv drama that this could be used in and I can't really. :lol:

It truly is an amusing piece. The diminished scale is rather esoteric; I suspect it is rarely used in rock or popular music as the exclusive scale.

Regarding the subject matter: I zeroed-in on an aspect of the film that usually gets little to no mention: Quint's foreshadowing.

Quint's first and last scenes:

My Feedback

Music - 9.5
Instruments - 9
Performance - 10
Mix - 9.5

Overall - 9.5

Comments: I can definitely imagine this as a theme for those Matt Helm spy spoof movies. This is definitely different. Made me smile. Well performed. Well mixed. I'd love to hear this with some totally off the wall vocals. Shame this hasn't gotten more listens. One of the more interesting things here.

Thank you for listening and providing honest feedback; also, I enjoyed the Matt Helm reference. :tu:

:?: Do you prefer the original synth-oriented OSC version of the track (found here at #35), or this latest rock-oriented version?
