yeah man we don't need another Matt Blair on this site. Modesty goes a long way and dismissing those artists on this site that you simply lump with the rest that actually ARE good - and there arwe lots- you just have to know where to look - is pigheaded.

Big suprise that you posted your own stuff.
yea cause its better quality, mixing, mastering and better than most stuff on NG.

There's a difference between being cocky and having confidence. Never assume yourstuff is the best, it makes you look like an ass. Instead, assume your work has potential to be the best. Kind of like me and game scores. Lots of game scores out there, but I think I could compete with those people if I tried.

Don't be too modest, but don't be too cocky. It's a balance.

I'm sad. I was attempting to get my newest song onto the top 5 this week, but i submitted it before last Wednesday's selection. Does A-Bot just pick from 12/16 to 12/22 for today's top 5?

Congrats to those who did.

Tru dat, Nexus and Soundgoodizer ftw eh?

I like the #3 is a decent trance song, but #4 is just wow, over-compressed and over-EVERYTHING.

simply submitting a song wednesday night and fiving it i'm afraid doesn't mean you will get on the top five Kaizerwolf. If I rememebr correctly at least ten people needed to have 10'd your song - and your song has to be in the top 5 highest scores for a NEW song when it hits 12:00 on the dot. Keep in mind that newgrounds also feels that you should EARN your five so those zero voters that sweep through and zero those non-deserving bastards who submit last minute WILL make your song go down if you don't have the voting weight of.. say.. a weeks worth of people ;)

the way I see it - if your song survives the onslaught - it deserves to be up there :)

Voice acting on #1 for a change.
And F-777 not surprisingly on there too, as I could see he had 4.7+ and 100+ votes on day one of the submission.

#1 is not a song
#2 is well done
#3 is no surprise
#4 is teasing x-D I wonder what the real song will be like.
#5 is a bit too generic and could be mixed better

Don't worry, I'm hard at work on it and hope to post the real thing ASAP. I'm actually quite surprised that the sample got in the list this week. Oh, and congrats to all the other "top-fivers," great work!

Ditto. I didn't hear too many inconsistencies that would need to be hidden in reverb (unless, well, they were successfully hidden) and although sometimes delay/reverb helps it sound ethereal, it could've been toned down a tad.

if it's hiding any shakiness, tell Julia to sing it out! it sounds good-- looking forward to the updated version.

They were successfully hidden, lol

it was to hide shakiness, it was her first time recording ever, and we had limited time for takes. When the updated version is uploaded I will focus on having the vocals more present and in your face

The only reason all those "crap-filled" songs got onto the top 5 was because the zero bombers took a break this week...

Therefore, no matter how much we hate them... they do help make Newgrounds how it should be.

Number 3 sounded really good.

Also, I just think that #1 does not deserve to be there, because it's too simple and basic, there isn't much going on, and it lasts 11 seconds.....

Good to see epixa get some exposure. He's a wonderful hardstyle artist. Haywire is just a G and will always get song of the week when he submits but I think the general consensus is that 3 & 5 are this week's actually-may-deserve-to-be-there songs.

To Mich:

#2 In case a tune have been heavily struck by what you suspect to be massvoters, please do not discuss that in this thread. There is an official thread for that.

I'm not suggesting that.

#5 If anyone mentions zerovoting or 'zerobombing', this person will be slapped with a large trout by yours truly, and risk having their rule-breaking post deleted and/or getting banned by any BBS-moderator.

I didn't mean to mention that exactly.. just that they do help.

Sorry Mich :D
