So you're saying no matter who actually gets voted to win, maestro's fav wins?
That's not at all what im saying because its not about his personal prefrefence. If that was true then it would hardly be a contest, it would be " inpress The maestro". I havent really met him but i have skimed through his review and they look thoughtful and well ploted. I have not listened to much of his music but from what i have heard and from the reviews i did read i can tell that he has some concept of musical theroy. With that being said it safe to assume that if a song wins its preobally going to be a Good song.
Also, saying something's not good because the author didn't spend a lot of time on it is like saying, "z0mg this game is amazing because it's been in development for thee years lolol." We all know that was not the case with Daikatana. Length spent working on a piece in no way correlates to its quality in my opinion.
While typing my first reply i had taken this into consideration but really didnt feel a need to go into it, i guess i have to now. First I would like to explain how you contradicted yourself in your own example. Your mention a game that took three years to make and its quality doesnt correlate, Now the key to your contradiction is what you mention at the end. " In My Opinion" this again runs along with what i said earlier, its your personal prefrance. With that being saide wherether or not the game sucks i dont know. If it took three years to make and you thought it was boring i would correct you, now on the other hand if the game was hardly developed, short and had crappy game play than you would be right. They way you exspreessed that was like taking a fact and making it into an opinion.
Now about the music, its true somebody could have spent a year on a song and it still could have turned out shitty, Though i higly doudt this (so long as they understand some musical concepts).For instance a long amount of time was spent on one song but it has no transtions and wasnt pieced together right, well that yeah that would be a bad song and probally wouldnt win. As for a song that has allot of time put into it that follows along musical concepts but has a bad mealody, I dont even think we can continue this conversation because other ideas come into play. Its true a song can have a bad melody without it just being your personal prefrance but not enough of us are well enough edgucated to determine that so we just go off what we think.
