Uh... 5TanLey... I love you so much... <3

Melodies :
Wow those first two chords make me think about Future Imperfect ! 0o
This is truly one of the best beginning I've ever heard ! ^^
To be honest, I think you're really good at creating melodies, but you don't use that gift enough ! I mean the melodies in this track are great : complex and everything... but you don't put forward any particular melody. And that's my problem. I don't know if it's subjective or something, but to me, the goal is to make your listener remember of your track. To do that, you got the Melodies, the Instruments and the Personality. If we look at your melodies in this track, they are diversified, and that's great. But among the diversity of the melodies, you need to create one particular melody to your track. If I take for example Future Imperfect (which was not entirely good on this point either, but way better), the main melody was the one played by that kind of guitar at 0:24, 0:36, 0:42, 0:45, 2:02, 2:08 and 3:27. Those three notes. That's a thing I still remembered several weeks after ! *_*
But in That Weed Girl, as I said, there are good melodies, but not a particular one. You need to build a melody to your track with which you'll make us say "Ow ! That's A Weed Girl !" when we hear it ! Y'know ? =3

Instruments :
Whoaaaaa... this piano sounds sooo good mate ! *_*
I don't think I have anything to say on the instruments, the mixing is really great, the vocals are not my type, but they fit really well with the part after 0:52, just as that synthesizer at 1:03 and 2:10. The drums help the track to be even faster, which is exactly what it needed to be (with a name like that) ! =D

Personality :
There's a pretty okay personality too, despite the lack of main melody. I just have two minor problems. The first one is the mood of the track completely change at 0:52. It starts with something really dreamy and kinda sad, to turn into something happy. Maybe it's because of those ultra-fast drums. I don't know if that's what you wanted, but I don't think the part before 0:52 fits with the part after 0:52. Then, well it's really minor, but the ending is pretty... "normal", it's almost like a fading away, which is honestly the death of originality ! =3

Melodies : 1,5/2
Instruments : 2/2
Personality : 0,5/1

In overall, I like your tracks so much that it's really hard to find some things you could improve on (I rated 4 on the review, but 5 in the track's score) ! ^^
These are my highly-subjective thoughts, so I might not be right, you'll decide of that ! Well done anyway ! ;)

ha gay :P

yeah I use like 5 chords over and over again, only different scales

the main melody is played by the piano, but in the end it got mixed into oblivion a bit

and my mind set on the outro was like "fuck this", so I did only fade-out with some flanger

thx for the REVIEW, you are one of the rare newgrounders who write more than 1-2 lines :)
