Reviewing music
« on: January 06, 2013, 11:46:50 »
Well, it's pretty simple. You have to post a music video of any song. Then someone's gotta review it. The reviewer is gonna post another music video, and so it goes on...

RULES:
Since sometimes children come across the forum (like me), songs gotta be appropriate, that means no swearing / sexual content / etc. etc...

Videos MUST be from Youtube.

No jokes / screamers / unrelated videos.


So with the rules done, LET'S START!

Reviews have to be descriptive.

So... i'm supposed to write my opinion on it, then ask someone else his opinion on something else?

Then you recommend another song, so someone else reviews it. And then it goes on.

I rather like it, especially at how it ends. Somewhat unrelated, but the music video is interesting as well~
8/10

As for mine..

Having heard about Squarepusher for years but never really listened to him I came into this song with overly high expectations. I'm sorry to say Dark Steering seemed unexceptional compared to similar minimalist techno and chip/glitch-inspired dance music I've heard in the past, though I assume Squarepusher was a trailblazer of sorts. I found the song inoffensive but I'd rather it provoked more of a reaction (in either direction). The visuals were pretty great, though!
6.5/10

Something I don't really get: is this game meant to showcase cool music or cool videos? Until this is clarified, I offer the next player a choice between cool music and cool video.

I enjoyed neither of music, but the video and the game were kinda cool. What game is that?

Well, WTF. That was disturbing. The music was pretty cool though.

I can be music or music with a video. Doesn't really matter.

Hey, I've heard this song before! Still pretty great, and the video was nice, too.

You guys don't get no fancy video this time around.

Salmoneous didn't post a song so...
@ Necrofantasia II, yeah, it's more of a gimmick than a song I would actually listen to. 5/10
