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.

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.

Stupid. So is the animation.

#2

Yawn.

#3

Not a crappy song but not at all exciting.

#4

Finally a song with some character. I enjoyed it... mostly.

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.

I'm impressed by the Top 5 this time, although not too much. 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)

OK the Top 5 this time is horrible. The only one that isn't ear-rape is the first one, and even that one isn't too good.

It shows how the AP is desperate for a better system.

I do agree however about the other four. I would expect that my track would be the worst among the features, but it seems total, utter shit has somehow been getting to the top 5 lately.

Your track isn't actually bad, and I wouldn't say it sucks as mentioned above. The production value is there. You obviously know your way around whatever DAW you are using. But the writing is very bland and repetitive. If I were you I would keep doing what you are doing from a producer standpoint, but increase the amount of time and work spent on the writing aspect.

As for the other four songs up, I think the worst is the song posted under Latin. Because at least the other three have in some way followed their genres. The blues songs are actually blues, the production value is just awful and the chipmunk idea is old, overused, and lame. And the techno song is techno-ish, just bad in terms of quality and composition.

But the song posted under Latin is by far the worst in every way. There is no aspect of Latin instrumentation or style in it whatsoever.

#1 is produced well and pretty good for trance/dance, but it sounds to me like its stylistically unoriginal. Otherwise its good, but doesn't stand out as something I'd really be intrigued to hear. SirDangle deserves a spot in top 5 I think with it, I wouldn't contest that at all.

The other 4 how ever just blow hard core.

Don't mind that I called your song not that good. I have a hatred for Dance/Trance unless they're made by musical geniuses like F-777.

I am, but people like this guy, this guy and this guy make me stay.

Besides, if you check my favourites, you'll see that I have a number of Trance songs fav'd. I just hate the usual kick per beat, clap every 2 beats, offbeat bass, simple/repetitive melodies and ridiculously reverbed pianos playing random piano solos. Songs like F-777's are original, have good melodies, and heck, he's the first person I know of who actually adds a pan flute in trance songs and makes it sound GOOD.

That's not to say your song is bad, it just means that I'm one of the few people on NG who don't like the usual dance/trance and still remain on the site. If I had to review it I'd give it a high score nonetheless, since it's still a good song, just not good in my ears.
