But the admins claim that they have a good way of getting rid of 0-bombing this time.
They should make your previous 10 votes or all votes visible on your profile, and/or limit your votes to 20 per week or 10 per day or something reasonable.

PS This weeks no.1 is awesome! *sarcasm*

Never gonna happen - people turn into monsters when they know what you've voted on.

Also from what ive gleaned theyre simply gonna make it so each additional vote you give a song just changes the original vote you gave it - so if you originally voted it 5 and then 0 the next day - instead of averaging out to whatever the score you gave it will simply be zero, not combined.

I had a feeling you were the prick who zero-bombed my submissions. That "spasm, broken up, choppy piano submissions" comment all but confirms it. Are you really such an immature fuck that you'll resort to zero-bombing? I mean, I don't think your music's great, but I at least have the decency to vote fairly on it -- or not vote on it at all.

Not to mention I can write my own music, I don't need to pick up classical music and change the key note to try and get something "new".

I'm not even going to comment on this, because it makes no sense whatsoever.

While I wasn't fond of how he made weekly, I actually thought he had some pretty cool idea's and concepts going on, they just weren't very polished or well produced.

The instrumental was nice, Sounds like it was created from scratch (woot, finally no midi) but the voices were pretty bad. the rap rhymes were very simple "Mistake" "escape" "maze" "place" (i don't know if it was the goal of the author) there was some out of tune singing. I respect this guy as a flash animator but he needs to work on the music.

2

I was kinda disappointed with paragon's comeback, i was hoping something with more energy, the song felt pretty empty. I really liked the sound quality as always and the 3/4 was really original for a drum and bass track, but most of the instruments were arpeggios going with the chord progression. The break was the best thing from this track ,great stuff; so video game style, too bad it was really short. It's a good track but he has done better.

3

Oh yeah this is so old school, reminds me alot of my childhood were i used to hear this type of music. It just sounds amazing, i liked everything of this track. Every sound was classic, i got a nostalgia bomb when i heard this track. Dang i wish i could make stuff like this.

Fav'd

:4

I didn't like the beginning of the transition between the texhno part and the dupstep like part, but everything sounded really nice, i liked those game fx sounds from old games. The synths were basic but great in the end.

Nice

5

Woot it's good to see prod once again on the top 5 , I already told him that this track is really great. I suggested that he could put a more defined song reference somewhere on the track. But dang this is some good stuff.

In the end, the top 5 of this week was good , no proxy dudes with their bad music and everyone happy.


Music is my passion , not my business.

Top 5 due to a flash. Not much of a fan but it could be far worse.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 32975

Top 5 due to.. "ParagonX9". I found the song quite lame. Not an awful lot was going on and there was no such thing as a structure to it, it didn't go anywhere. Disappointed.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 31994

Whee, the good ol' B0UNC3 sound. Quite cheesy, but I have the idea that's what he was aiming for. Superb production as always, including one of those kicks he works on for days.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 32464

This was quite interesting sounding, unlike what the title made me expect. HOOVERS.

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/4 32310

Woot, Prodigal! His production and composing skills have been getting really good for a while, and this is well-deserving if you ask me. HOOVERS.
I'm not a fan of much dubstep, but this is quite nice sounding, because it doesn't focus too much on just a wacky fart bass and some drums.

All in all quite a decent top 5.

Psyguy - Waltz of the Forest

Absolutely brilliant. Seriously deservres to be #1 (for a while). The vocals were great, and the switches between beats and genres really added to the feel. Very good.

ParagonX9 - Chaoz Twilight

Disappointing. Doesn't deserve to be second of the week. The song felt empty and sounded like there wasn't a lot of effort put in here. The beat switches were strange, and the beat at the 3/4 parts totally doesn't fit. I am disappoint.

B0unc3 - B0unc3 Remix (AS - Sbs)

Sounds pretty good. A little repetitive, though. I would've liked a breakbeat part somewhere in the middle to give it a bit more variation. Still good.

wtflolnoob - Hi I'm 12 and What is Electro?

Cool song, got me in a dancing mood alright. Lots of variation in synths, style and beat. A very successfull experiment.

ProdigalAudio - Lavender Town Remix

Not too bad. Beat could've been a little better, though. Also the song as a whole still felt a bit empty.

I know what you mean, I didn't really add any atmosphere into it besides a synth, a bass, and a drum beat :P

But who knows, maybe my next production will have everything included! xD

I'm not necessarily saying that I like certain songs, but It's good to sNewgrounds Audio behemoths didn't forget this place, like Kazmo, ParaonX9 and B0UNC3.
