Unclear Description: Orchestral Bombing get usage counts

Yeah...three lines in the description and it doesn't even bother to describe what orchestral bombing consists of, or what fits and what doesn't. Anyone want to help figure this one out?

Wow. Yeah, this one needs some serious help.

It seems to be a soundtrack trope, that bombs and bombing runs get impressive orchestral orchestral music.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.

Aye, that is what I am getting from the trope description as well. It's not very clear, though.

Ouch. Looks like someone took concise too far when writing that description(I believe it's clear, concise, and witty, in that order). Definitely needs a bit more meat on those bones, though my feeling from reading the description is it isn't necessarily limited to bombing runs, but to aerial battles in general.

Looking at the description and the Laconic, I think this is supposed to apply to any "orchestral" music being used background music during a battle of any sorts, or at least any sort of aerial battle (or space equivalent), whether it be bombing or dog-fighting.

I think this is supposed to be the orchestral equivalent of Autobots, Rock Out!, and is noting this seems to be more commonly used by aerial battle scenes(however accurate or not that is). I agree the description needs a big rework.

No, the other one.
I get the impression it's about using heavy orchestral music to emphasise the epicness or something of a battle scene.

Ergo, Autobots, Rock Out!, but orchestral

Clock's up; locking for inactivity.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
