GA Review by Judgesurreal777[edit]

Rate Attribute Review Comment
1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct. Your writing style is clean and to the point.
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation. Complies with requirements.
2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline. References 19 and 32 seem to have bare links. -Fixed
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines. This one I have a few questions on; What is the reliability of Square Music Online, Original Sound Version, Online Welten, Maz tools, and game music? - All confirmed to be most likely reliable.
2c. it contains no original research. Appears clean of OR.
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic. Any criticism of the event? Any sales figures for the albums? Do we have an audio clip

of the music? Finally, will the concert series continue in 2013? - Content expanded

3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style). Laser sharp focus.
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each. No bias detected.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute. No edit wars.
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. All set, good short fair use rationale and everything is tagged.
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions. All set here, lots of excellent quality free use images.
7. Overall assessment. Pass - Excellent article! I would nominate it for A class, or even FA.Judgesurreal777 (talk) 23:01, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

Fixed those two references and added a music sample. The reviews of the concert were overwhelmingly positive, and no sales information for the albums has been released. No word on any future performances- they usually only announce concerts like this about 6 months in advance, whether its a series or stand-alone.

Sources: Square Music Online and Original Sound Version are edited news sources with dozens of interviews with video game music professionals each, and both were invited to have one-on-one interviews with the composers and producers of the concert, as well as to the afterparty. I've used them both in FAs before. Online Welten is a professional, edited online news source similar to GameSpot that's associated withe the magazine GameStar, published in several different European Countries. Maz Sound Tools is the producer of the European albums- Merregnon Studios subcontracted out to them. GameMusic(.pl/.com) is a Polish game music site, not user-submitted, that focuses a bit more on European game music but has interviews with dozens of people including Masashi Hamauzu, Hitoshi Sakimoto, and Nobuo Uematsu. --PresN 22:54, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
