It's not all that often that we get old school hip hop beats in the Top 5. This was actually really refreshing. It was a little repetitive, but I guess most rap beats are. Definitely one of the better songs to be featured in the Top 5. Maybe it's just me, but did the kick drum sound a little off-beat to anyone else, especially at the end of the track?
The vocals, especially those at the start of the track, seemed way too far forward in the mix compared to the backing music. Other than that, I can't honestly say I like the track because I personally don't like the style of the original track, or xKore... :\
Interesting and refreshing. It's actually quite nice, if a little 'safe' when it comes to the chord progression. I also wish it was longer and more developed, maybe with a bit of variation or dynamic range. But other than that, it's better than most of the usual Top 5 droll.
Maybe it's just me, but when the original melody kicks in, it sounds an awful lot like a midi rip. Other than that, it's a little repetitive in my opinion.
Some very nice guitar playing in there. Not really original, and not really a polished track, but it's nice to see some more rock & metal in the Top 5 :)
Overall, not a bad Top 5 this week. I'm actually quite pleasantly surprised.
