Wow you guys are making me rofl. I don't even know how I got #1. I was under the impression that I was ''barely'' going to get on top 30. Then my 4.43 went down to 4.30 around 9P.M Tue night. I don't even know how it's possible don't worry though. Those who are not liking that it's not one of my best works like ''Back And Forth'', and ''Discovery''. I will make it up for that with my next song I have so many ideas for. Thanks for top 5 guys. Congrats to everyone else who got top 5. ^^ Good day everyone.

Ok theres three answers to this:

1) He's a newbie that tries to make piano compositions(every does in the begining), and somehow the NG populace caught onto him, and his very FIRST 3 song all got top 5. my first three songs had around a 0-3 rating...... oh wait my songs do too.
2) Hes boosting himself with friends/proxies
3) Hes blackmailing Fulp as proven by Mr acidparadox here.

I <3 Newgrounds guize :DDD!!!

1. Seems quite jaded, and doesn't surely represent any relevance to Top 5.
2. Possibility.. '']
3. Maybe Fulp is blackmailing me? Ever think of that? >:

I think you simply got lucky twice, and then you got stupidly frontpaged on your third track, which got you on the weekly best again.

Stupidly because front page spots should be for tracks/artists that aren't getting the exposure they deserve.

I'm not breaking down your work, by the way; but as we all know, the biggest factor for making top 5 isn't really making a top-quality song.

People front paged my stuff and I didn't need exposure. If a mod likes a song, then they are welcome to post it on the FP.

Mhmm.. Sorry xKore for not pleasing you with my piano song. I know it's not my best. It still has it's beauty. I don't even know how I got Top 5. I was really under the impression of a having a SMALL chance in getting into top 30. Thats it.

If you're going to be making piano/ambient compositions, you should probably look into getting a better sounding piano and reverb. IMO

A better sounding piano will probably require an investment, but I'm sure there's some free alternatives that at least don't sound like FL keys, most likely in soundfont form. Actually, I'm pretty sure there are nice sounding free piano soundfonts, but none come to mind atm.

There are some nice sounding free reverbs aswell, SIR convolution reverb comes to mind, although I don't use it, I've heard good things about it.

just my 2 cents.

Mhmm.. xKore, when I compose my music. I tend to never let the term ''common'' come to mind. Instruments are instruments. I used FL keys, because it suited exactly what I was going for when it came to my story I written. You seem to only not be familiar with the depth of my song, because you are too wore out on FL Keys. Try to look past it as FL Keys, look what the keys represent. I don't knwo.. It's just my take on sounds, I just express myself. Instruments are just my paintbrushes to paint my world.

Thing is, FL Keys is an absolutely terrible sounding piano synth and your songs will sound objectively better if you use something different.

I will be sure to check these other piano samples out. Thanks. Also, SBB, I see that now. ^^ I will be sure to take this into consideration for my future works. I appreciate the the information :3 Reasoner always has awesome music o.o

This is pretty cool.

#5

Prefer this one over #2 but still, this guy shouldn't have got 2 spots though. Some great track could go unnoticed now..

#1 Not a fan.
#2 Yay xKore and his sick wip.
#3 Lol nexus all over the place, nothing very interesting.
#4 This sounds fairly original, it's got a strange structure and a quite dull mix though.
#5 This is pretty nice, although it just keeps wandering on from melody to melody. Some more repetition/consistency would benefit it, I think.

#1: I've heard better Hip-Hop on here but I've heard a lot worse too. Beat was so sick but didn't really feel the flow on the vocals though. EQing on them wasn't the best either.

#2: AMAZING BASS WORK! Heavy as fuck! It just sucks the WIP got the top 5 spot instead of the finished track which I hope will be here soon.

#3: Unimaginative melodies, standard instruments and simple composition. Mixed a little better than most of those stupid dance songs that always make top 5 though.

#4: Pretty standard trance sorta' stuff. Thought it has some alright melodies done with that guitar though.

#5: This was sick. Absolutely great melodies and harmonies in this, cool bouncy beat and it's mixed pretty well too. Really feeling some of the VG tracks that have been hitting the top 5 lately. None of them have been a let-down so far.
