No offense, but I liked the old ones. They sound more mysterious IMO.

Eh, I don't really like the chimes and the ringing or what have you. It just makes it sound kind kind of cheesy. Xen isn't Christmas land. It's still pretty good overall, though.

I personally think this is a brilliant idea for Xen - Fresh, but without losing the alien feeling that's meant to be conveyed.

And the chimes really add to the piece - They're unorthodox, and that's how Xen should be. Unorthodox. Strange and alien. The composition of the music reminds me of the beating of a heart - up and down, up and down, from quiet to booming and back again. I think this is amazing, to say the least!

Really fitting music... It captures the atmosphere of Xen perfect. Good job to the music artist. :)

It some points it reminds me at "The Thing" movie soundtrack.
