Thanks, Red.

Your song has a nice contrast between the clean guitar parts and the harder electric guitar chord riffs. I wasn't a fan of the vocals at first, but they grew on me, I also liked the more atmospheric effect on the vocals later in the song. The melodies aren't amazing, but they're good, and their performances are all well executed. The piano at the end was a nice addition. 7.5/10

Either my last song is the one to be reviewed by someone who's serious about this thread. Or Z... can pick a serious song for review.
I apologize. I did not realize that this fell under the category of novelty/meme songs.

While an enjoyable listen, I feel as though it drags on too long for some parts. I think the instrumental drowns out the vocals. It does have a lot of cool effects to amp up the tone of the song. 7.8/10

Don't worry Z... I wasn't as clear as I should've been on not wanting novelty/joke/meme songs here. Since it was as much of a misunderstanding I retract my "last chance" statement, but if you do it two more times, then I will ignore you here. Feel free to continue in this thread with serious songs, though. :)


As for Red's song.

I'm quite picky about the electronic music I like. I tend to like chiptune and ambient, but not EDM. The beat and electronics are decent, kind of hypnotic in an atmospheric way along with the echoed "hey" vocals, so that's nice, but most of the regular vocals break the atmosphere and just sound like sterile rhythmic talking. The focus on the more interesting synths and the beat from about 3:40 on uped the rating by .5. So, 4.5/10.

Well this is different from what you usually post. It's a nice blend of metal and electronic, although some parts are pretty lame. 6.69/10

I was going to submit my own after checking out yours, but now I need to purge my internet history.

Red's song...

Not bad, not good, but somewhere in between. Somewhere ever so perfectly balanced between. His vocals seem above average ever so slightly at times, but then they go down to being exactly average or below average, so I'd say he's a middling average country vocalist. The same goes for the melodic composition of the song and lyrics. A solid 5/10

I really like this song. Like the mix of classical and rock, and sexy vocals. For some reason, I like songs with vocals I can't understand, gives it a mysterious vibe to it.

I have no experience with electronic music really, but I think the variety of segments throughout the song is good. Maybe more words would be good, but I don't think that's the style they want. Also, I could do the robot to that song for over 6 minutes, which bumps up the score. So, 6/10? But, I really have no idea what I'm talking about. (also, Conway Twitty is great, but I really like Loretta Lynn, so my favorites are their duets [like this one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm5-sZLBPfs])
