LolitaChix releases 4 midis, although 2 of them already exist in her other midipack ('Despair in d minor' and 'Victory March in G Major'). There was no difference between the versions here and in the other midipack, as far as my ear could tell.

'Victory March in G Major' sucks, but the three other midis are great. Great! 'Mystery Forest' would be ideal for an, um, mysterious forest, while 'Despair in d minor' is pretty good at evoking a sense of, er, despair. Maybe with a pinch of pathos added in. Did I mention the song names are quite descriptive?

'Fugue in d Minor' is a classical piece, melancholy, lofty and somewhat chaotic. It would fit seamlessly into an appropriate scene in the main game. The original 'Toccata and Fugue in D Minor' by Johann Bach has an incredibly well known beginning, which I'm glad LolitaChix decided not to include here. With the beginning, the only place you could ever use this song in would be at an ultra cheesy vampire castle.

Even though there are just two new midis here, this file is good. The midis sound great, and they're also quite different in style from what other music makers on the site tend to produce. While joshriot's, Christiaan's and DinkDude95's midi packs are great for moshing boncas to death, Lolly's midis are simply beautiful, and fit different sorts of situations.

This pack contains four midis. They all have a fairly different feeling to them.

Victory March in G: I can really only see this being used for an ending scene/ending credits. Though it'd have to be a happy ending. Other than that, I really can't think of a time to use this.

Mystery Forest: As the title suggests, this would be fantastic for a forest. Or, some mysterious place. It's a really really nice piece, and might be my favorite in the pack. It's very catchy.

Fugue in d minor: This midi would fit well in an evil castle/evil castle dungeon. Though, to be perfectly honest, it might not be the best choice. It doesn't loop well, and has some moments that might only be nice within a cutscene. It's nearly five and a half minutes long which means that'd have to be one pretty long cutscene.

Despair in a minor: To me, this midi gives off a pretty lonely vibe. I can see it working for a mysterious/ghost town. Definitely something I can see being used.

Overall this pack isn't bad. It's a shame the author didn't include a readme(though maybe that's just this version). The midis are very nice, I just can't see more than two of them actually being used.
