The music is excellent.

I was however surprised that 2 of the 4 tracks were only 1 minute long.

Anagnorisis 03:13 Pulp Trail of Cthulhu Theme 00:59 Purist Trail of Cthulhu Theme 01:01 Ruminations 03:07

I would have felt better about my purchase if I was aware of the track lengths and that the total music time was only 08:20

The 1 minute themes are meant to be "opening credits" music for your adventure. I love that, but 1 minute seems of limited use as once offs at the beginning of each play session. My players can take that long to realise there is music playing and thus settle down.

The other two tracks can loop fairly well for 20-30 minutes which is fine for they are intended to be used at specific points throughout an adventure, not the entire soundtrack.

I would like to see future releases build on this great work providing for different scenes, and more tracks that can be looped in with these for "downtime", research, exploration, etc

I do hope this composer continues to put out excellent original pieces - I am quite happy to pay a premium for them as compared to buying Original Sound Tracks of movies, but I do expect there to be some length to future work.

I have given this product 3 stars: 4 for the excellent quality of the music - original, full, professional, and appropriate to the genre. -1 star because I expected 4x 4+ minute tracks not 2x 3 minutes and 2x 1 minute

[3 of 5 Stars!]
