Entry: Here comes the Tankmen! Overall rating: 9
Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. The beginning was a bit slow but after a while... woo boy this piece was doing great.
EXTREMELY original. I loved this. I ALMOST laughed (i'v never laughed from any musical piece in my life except 1)
This was ever-changing, ever-moving into a pshycotic state of retardness. I loved it. This would be a wonderful tankmen theme. This is also a great first piece and I can't wait to see how you do with your own original works.
The only thing that was really a low score was your clarity. Many times sounds could not be heard and some things blended together.
Still, a wonderful piece and it barely dragged you down.
Clarity/Sound Quality: 6
Good luck in the MAC6 August Contest. Your definately in my top 3 picks. ^^

Hello -Zenon-. I'v seen you around on forums but i'v never really had a chance to listen or review your music now have I? Sorry about that.
Anyways, the clarity and diversity were great. Constantly changing and moving foward... this piece kept you listening.
A nice piece but... not exactly well-thought out and done with time and care. Please forgive me if I'm wrong about that but that's what it seems like.
It's extremely simple... just the dun, dun, dun, dun, in the backround anyone can do. As well as... although your piece was constantly changing, only a simple thing was done. There was nothing at all complex about this piece.
Anyone could have done something similar by sticking in a melody and easily doing everything else.
Then again... the characters of Tankmen arn't exactly... complex now are they ;)
What i'm trying to say is. Although it would be a fitting piece and it is entertaining. It's not the best you could do. You could have done so much more with this and made it a must-have as a theme!
Anyhow, it's fine just the way it is, could be better, but it's good nonetheless.
I wish you the best of luck in the MAC6 August Contest.

Entry: Tankmen Attack! Overall rating: 7
Alrighty then. Lets start with diversity. Although changes did take place this piece god kind of old after a while. Yes, it was very fun and very good in the beginning but as i'v said before... it was dragged out and worn down.
I'v seen you on forums but i'v never listened to your music. I have to say I am quite impressed.
The clarity of this piece is superb. Tho', for originality i'v heard similar pieces and there wasn't much new or out of the ordinary in the piece except a few minor things.
I really don't feel Tankmen should have been a technoish piece though. You may be best at techno (i'm not sure) and similar pieces but one of the hardest things about making this piece (which is the reason I didn't do it... i'm to amateur =P) Is that you have to change your style in many cases. I have never done a happy, humurous piece in my life... the closest i'v done is my Piano Sonata but I feel I could never do a decent Tankmen theme.
You need skill, to take what you know and change and totally incorporate it into a new genre of music. I'v seen others do this... but I don't feel you did.
Still, don't get me wrong, it was a wonderful piece. Just not suitable for Tankmen I think.
Good luck in the MAC6 August!

Entry: The Tankmen Are Coming! Overall rating: 8
I liked it. A very original piece I think... especially next to all the other Tankmen submissions.
It could have been more diverse I think... from middle to end I kept hoping that something new would come in. I know new stuff did happen but the same tune stayed and was dragged until it wore down and died.
Overall, you did a good job here and I really liked the transition you made.
Good luck in the MAC6 August Contest!

Entry: Tankmen Overall rating: 8
Excellent job here. It was extremely clever and original to throw in those Tankmen lines. Although the piece was somewhat repetitive it still changed enough so that it would not get boring and of course, those hilarious lines kept you listening.
Everything was great for this piece. And I feel it has an excellent chance of winning.
Good luck! I think you have one of the best chances out of everyone to win! ^^
