Totally agree with you. One of my classical songs got around 5 0-votes in one night (from 12 votes to 17 votes, it started at 4.99 and ended at 4.00).

Ah well, no use whining about it, let's try not to derail the thread...

I also see that Ninjakoopa-33 is featured artist. He's been a regular around these parts quite a while ago, and then sort of disappeared.

Anyway, discuss, or something. :)

my newest track has a higher score than those, thats odd.
How do these things work? I never aspired to get into any 'top but i thought that by luck (i guess) i actually would get in it this time.

I was even suprised i had not been zero bombed yet like usual.

Is there some kind of minimum votes you need to get or something?
Or is the miscelaneous genre ignored?

Just asking.

Hey, this one started out pretty funky, with the triplet feel and all. Then it just repeated itself forever, with some more stock synths and then boring.

Sounds like every single other song in the audio portal. No redeeming qualities. Boring.

Well, I only have 42 fans so I doubt I'll be getting a Top 30 anytime soon. Good to see aliaspharow's music in the Top 30 though, he definitely deserves it.

These flash songs making weekly are kind of annoying, bumping off people with skill. Its funny I guess in the video... but its just a newb song with vocal clips with minimal editing (reverb) on the off beats.

#2
Steven Polley

As the name suggests, this sounds like every other song I've heard a million times before. I gave it a more thorough listen earlier today (I'd heart it earlier in the week), and it sounds like a medley of overdone melodies. Production and whatnot is nice for electronic music though, the transitions are pretty fluid.

Ah, the top 5 is decent this time round, however I'll have to agree with InvisibleObserver that it's unfair that all of the crappy 'audio' used in popular flashes always steal a spot for a possibly deserving song.

As for my favourite submission, either #4 or #5.

Sounds kinda promising as an electronic-soundtrack merge, but it becomes a garbled mess of sound eventually. A bit too random, too.

1.) Meh, its funny for 20 seconds and then gets old quickly.

2.) This has the potential to be a good song, but the samples and synths used were very generic and tacky. If the production quality was better it would definitely make a nice song.

3.) I really liked this song, very relaxing and atmospheric. Well done.

4.) Cool song, nice use of rhythms. Wish there was more dynamic variance to it.

5.) The sounds don't seem to fit at all. Also there was no bass, especially in a hardstyle song. Nice attempt to be different though.

The 1st one was good but I felt that it had too much reverb, the third one's very generic and sounds just like all the other Trance songs (which is why I don't like Trance that much), and the 4th and 5th were obviously very well done but I never really liked Hip-Hop anyway. My favourite would be the second one :3.

Ah damnit, i finally reached a spot in the Top 5 and i didn't knew this thread even existed :(. (Thanks btw supersteph)
I should spend more time in these forums, (sigh)
