Ronin
Elia Cmiral

Review

Before I went out and bought this score I had never heard of Elia Cmiral. I was attracted to the music by that wonderful sad, jazz melody he wrote as the main theme for the protagonist. It pops up in a number of tracks (A New Friendship and Thank You are two examples) and gives a sense of brooding and uneasiness. Its great for building tension and would be great for specific events and descriptions. The rest of the score is mainly action orientated and good stuff at that. It would work well in science fiction campaigns when you have to raise the octane level. Well recommended.
