Philosophy of grading: A song earns points, it does not start at 5/10 nor 7/10 (lol IGN), but 0/10. Not only this, but anyone who actually cares about the review won't just look at the scoreThis is pretty interesting, it's sort of like post metal meets shoegaze, but instead of something like Deafheaven or Airs it's sort of segmented between the two genres until the latter part of the song. I like the guitar work a lot, and the drums switch up a lot, really keeps it fresh and interesting.
I like the vocals pretty well, and I'm think the lyrics are really good too! I'm gonna guess that the abrupt cutoff is supposed to be a track transition, but I'm not sure; so I don't really know what to think lol.
Overall I really liked this quite a bit, pretty atmospheric, unique, and very interesting.
Doom Meal / Sludge Meal / Lietrally everyone has heard this-core
Haha!! Truly a patrician, and evolved means of scoring a piece of music!!Philosophy of grading: A song earns points, it does not start at 5/10 nor 7/10 (lol IGN), but 0/10. Not only this, but anyone who actually cares about the review won't just look at the score
Actually it isn't, each riff has different end variations and intensities, then there's the bass introduction, then the secondary guitar. Although I'm sure someone so prolific in true music such as classical would recognize this!!Hmm, the first minute and thirty seconds is pretty much the exact same thing,
You should try to enjoy the riff or the symbols or anything instead of looking for something to denote a change in the music every 30 ****ing seondsthe only thing out of the normal was that the guitars went and riffed off the main line every once in a while, but it was marginal. The tone change after that point makes it more intense, but it's still repetitive.
??????????The first taste of something new comes with the vocals, which all aspects of the song take on a variation of one of the aforementioned themes.
Why is this a detractor?The voice is one style throughout, and that intense darkness does not change.
This is incredibly vague, please elaborate.The song has a solid foundation, which isn't necessarily a good thing, but in this case makes it have some level of enjoyability.
These are incredibly easy to understand and interpret if you pay attention at allI can only imagine the lyrics (which I cannot understand) are dark and poetic, wait, did I hear something about sacrifice?
This has been the case for the whole songPerhaps I was mistaking repetitiveness for very slow change and variation up to this point,
No.the voice stays on the same repetition vain, only varying tempo, not emotion besides the indistinct words.
If you're looking to be impressed solely by technical ability then I have some bad news for youThe guitar solo afterwards is nothing special
This makes no senseI get the distinct feeling of the increase in tone that the song carried along
Yes it was,I hope it didn't offend your enlightened sensibilities!!and oh my, was that a swear word at the end? If this was done in a less draggy fashion I would certainly enjoy it more.
I cannot pretend to review music in an objective fashion, that is far beyond my skill, sir, I am left to my inclinations, which are poor means of grading. The method I used is more conservative, sure, it often results in a lower overall score for most every piece, but if I went by impulse right now and started it off at a neutral 5, taking away only for very bad things and adding only for very good things, I would no doubt think of it as something along the lines of a 6 or 6.5. I grant the language I used was especially patronizing, and that was stupid of me. I meant none of my words as an attack against you or your tastes, no matter how pretentious they appear, it is not my intention, I hope you understand. Next time, instead of listening through it once and writing a review while I was listening, I'll listen multiple times and pick out the slight variation.Haha!!

Overall this review is a *******ization of all music reviews in an attempt to seem avant-teen enough to form some kind of shroud of faux good taste.

Alright, how about something similar in length? The Overture from Johann Strauss's Operetta "Die Fledermaus".
Thanks for posting this one, it's a bit different from what you normally post. I appreciate that!
Very nice! I enjoyed this song for the most part. The first 30 seconds classified as the intro was serene and easy to kick back too. The vocals introduced themselves naturally, not breaking any rhythm that was going on with the intro. Slowly and steadily, they add other elements, which once again, went with the progression of the song. You even see the vocalist get "louder" so his voice doesn't become overshadowed by the background music.Thanks for posting this one, it's a bit different from what you normally post.

Fairly average flamenco music as far as structure and general musicianship goes. So, it's a sort of sanitized and simplified version of flamenco that might play in elevators or shopping for jewelry. But it's perfectly fine, and enjoyable to listen to, if not very stimulating. I'd have to see a dance to this song to really appreciate it any more than on a just "not terrible" level.

(edit, oops, accidentally posted that Pavlo song again)
The song had interesting lyrics with a positive message, but I would have liked the song's message to be more obvious. The song was both very repetitive and catchy at the same time. More variety in the vocal melodies would have made the song a lot better, as well as some hi hats in the drum beat so it would sound more full. The song's ending was very boring; it was nothing special.
Song was a bit slow at first but as it went on I saw it different way. The song has no chorus and is basically a stream genius lyricism on number of subjects. That ending was so in sync and really got me hyped for a song that at the beginning I was skeptical about. I wish more rap was like this. 8/10
