Stein, maybe not god, but when it comes to C64 composers he's quite high on my list :)

Linus: No worries, nothing wrong with your tune, it was just the comparison below I reacted to.

Abaddon: Both quality and style. I can (of course) see why this tune is being compared to Follin (and I'm not talking about just the name), but I think this tune lacks a lot of the musicality, originality, complexity, drama and atmosphere that Follin put into his tunes. I like this tune, and I love the instruments, but without the typical Follin instruments and some of his almost signature sequences, would you even think of Follin at all?

This is cool. Reminds me more of the style of Yip than that of Tim Follin, really. To some people Follin is God, apparently. To me, not so much. Yip, on the other hand.. Crazy genius!

Kristian, are you talking about not being comparable style-wise or quality-wise? For me it does resemble Follin's music a lot. It's easy to lose perspective when you're comparing new stuff to something that's been around for decades... The old and familiar often gets more credit than it might deserve. I've been playing this song for several days now and it's as intriguing as the best tunes in Ghouls'n'Ghosts soundtrack. But then again, maybe that's not what you meant :P

... but the rest is not at all compareable with Tim Follin
It wasn´t my intention to compose something that resembles Tim Follin´s style at all. The chord progressions and time sigs are way different than anything he ever did. Cheap trick to use a title like "girls´n ghosts ..." to draw some attention, i must confess tho =)

Not a chance in hell, abaddon. The instruments in this one are great, but the rest is not at all compareable with Tim Follin.

As good as anything the Follins did.

@2F: Funnily enough I never really listened to Geoff's music but I do spot some similarities to Aiginas Prophecy now that you mention it. Maybe.

Not a love for at first sight. But when I listened it more times it bubbled to my top 10.

i'm somewhat disappointed about the unbelievably bad ranking for this one.
i don't think it's a matter of taste we're talking here, quality-wise this one is way ahead of most of the tunes.

edit: unbiased full score.
