    Looks like Romeo's entered into a composition contest of sorts. Fresh off the SX Facebook page:

    Thoughts on the tracks?

    These are all great. I think it's 1 > 3 > 2.

    I like them all quite well.

    Will this re-ignite the "Could MJR make film scores" discussion that was going on some time ago?

    I don't think so.

    Editing stems and tracking original ideas are very different.

    I entered a couple contests like that for stems of two bands. One was Peter Gabriel. I wouldn't dream of claiming I can do what he does.

    It's really not the same thing to come up with something with pre-made blocks, even if you build around it, than to start with nothing.

    I still contend he wouldn't make a great composer given what I've heard so far.

    Third one might be my favourite, not too big on the second one. And I agree with Kenneth, there isn't really anything here that would make him seem like a good movie composer. He could be, but it's hard to tell based on this.
