1

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.

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

2. What about Hania?

That's what you can call a facemelter. I dislike this genre, so I can ;'t actually say anything about this. I've heard better though.

KyvoX - Annihilation 999

A bit repetitive, and I don't think it's actually Dubstep, Techno would probably fit better. Pretty neat synths I must say, and also very good beat, but there's not enough variation.

gamejunkie - Rag-Tag World

Sounds pretty good, but the recording quality is a bit disappointing. If it was better I would've been more satisfied about this. I also think the song is too short, because it sounds nice.

decoyultimatun - Remember

Very nice and atmospheric, but I really hate the fact that these are all FL Studio presets he uses. I don't think this deserves to be in the top 5, as this kind of music comes through the AP all the time.

cheshyre - The Fall Of Cheshyre

Sounds like a big pile of randomly chosen and placed synths, just like his other songs. Again, mostly FL presets (also just like his other songs). This guy is way too overrated if you ask me, only the fact that he gets featured in the Madness series alot made him this popular. This shouldn't be 5th of the week.

All in all, I'm a bit disappointed in this weeks top. Also no big names this week, makes me sad :(

#1 is amazing :D
Finally a song with vocals :)

Others are cool too, especially the Waterflame song is catchy :)
SUB4RU's submission is less good.
I wonder why he keeps getting a top5 spot?

#1 deserves its spot, #2 is also somewhat deserving of second place but by an overrated artist, #3 and #4 don't deserve their spots at all and #5 has a very nice feel to it, with awesome rhythms, but the staccato string melody is incorporated a little awkwardly at first.

A good Top 5 in general.

They're chosen by a bot... called A-bot. A-bot chooses the top five highest scoring submissions from the week and showcases them in the Audio Portal page as a weekly Top 5.

The audio on the Newgrounds frontpage, however, are chosen by audio moderators.

The weekly top 5 consists of the 5 songs which got the highest voting scores that were submitted in the week before. Those songs are automatically placed in the top 5, so yes, these songs are chosen by bots.

ahh, well some of the top 5 songs from a couple of weeks ago (The under the sea one) WAS HORRIBLE, so i'm glad a real person did'nt pick that :D
Anyway I love number 1 so much! Amazing song! Beefour kinda let me down a bit with his, was'nt that good, Eddsworld one was great, but not really deserving top 5 since it was just 30 seconds :P
Hania's was good, as usual, 5 was great! But nowhere near as good as no.1

Well there are my thoughts :D
