Extremely rapid singing on the way!

Edit: Hey people, just wondering, any ideas to make the game better?

Hatsune Miku <3, automatic10/10

Since my opinion is extremely biased :P, for my song I'll pick the same one as Santicol

Reviews have to be descriptive now. So no "OMG I LOVE IT" or "Worst song of the world". I'm just trying to make things better. :)

I certainly love Elton's job with this song, but lately, I've been listening to.. well.. the type of music you said was terrible.
Classic Rock is something I will sometimes listen to now, but I've just completely changed myself to another kind of person.  XD
9/10

VERY FANCY VIDEO FOR Y'ALL NOW!

OK Go has a reputation for gimmicky music videos, but they make 'em better than pretty much anyone else. I haven't seen that one before, but for a video consisting almost completely of dog tricks it was pretty compelling. Music wasn't half bad either.

I'm not a big 80's fan. And while I like some of the early 80's art rock groups, Talking heads is not a favorite. Nevertheless, the song is pretty okay. 4/10

Wow... heaps of vocaloid and touhou music. Funnily enough my friend has been sending me links to those exact songs.  :P2

Anyway, the song is pretty good. It gets a bit "dreary" at times, but maybe its because I'm tired. But you can't really go wrong with slayer, even if there is no video. The intro is quite good, with a dark sinister lead up to the rest of the song. It does a good job of pacing. Whilst I'm not a particular fan of thrash metal (particularly the vocal style), the vocals do fit the style well. I give it a 7/10.

Anyway, here is my song:

I don't think I really "get" metal, and this song was no different. I've never even heard of Before the Dawn before (apparently they're from Finland), but uh, I guess they're okay if you like metal? I dunno, the most interesting part for me was the heavy drumming in the intro, and I didn't even like it that much.

I agree. The intro was quite interesting but the rest was meh. Knowing the retrospect of metal this is just another unoriginal band in the now shitty Scandinavian scene.

Your song was very lame and stupid. Best thing was a pretty sweet keyboard but otherwise 2/10.

4/10 Slow start, I think they could have added lyrics, it's really not that good in my opinion, I kinda like the fell to it, but could have been more exciting.

Impressive video, but I feel like the song suffered for it. It was a little toneless, and I can't imagine the complicated set-up helped that.

Well, I'm not much of a Who fan at the best of times and that track isn't even what I'd consider the best of The Who; just a formulaic vehicle for a crude double-entendre.

To be fair, I'm the wrong audience to judge them. If I'm gonna listen to something from the 60s it has to be Sabbath; I like to hear the blues influence in my early heavy rock :P

Not really my type of music, but the lyrics are pretty meaningful. 7/10

It's a very pretty piece with a nice tranquil mood to it. Kinda insubstantial, though. Almost sounds like something I'd hear in Knytt. Does Aphex Twin sound like this often?

The video is what makes this complete (imo)
