A well-tracked, high quality drum and bass song. Too bad I don't like DnB much at all...

Here's a basic dance tune if there ever was one! :) The melody that starts of the song isn't bad, but it doesn't deserve to be one of only two distinct melodies in the whole 6 minute song. Oh yeah, it doesn't end properly.

Interesting glitchy chippy tune. There are lots of distinct parts for a song that's only 2:30. I like the stuff leading up to the end.

Wow! This is really good! Most of the samples are just great. Some of the drums samples are a little bit iffy, but they are usually covered up by the great music. Some of the drum samples are really good, too, like the toms. The saxophone's volume varies a little more than I would like, but that's a minor problem. The guitar and bass are really good. Just get it!

Fun little rock n' roll tune. The piano and horns are well done, and the old-time guitars are pretty good as well. The song is a bit short and the ending is a bit weird, but it's definitely a keeper.

Pretty good, but no leads or distinctive melodies. I just love leads and distinctive melodies... :)

An excellent song let down by a few peculiar elements. On one of the long violin playing samples, there is what appears to be clapping at the end, which sounds like a really bad loop. Another problem is the lack of leads (yes, I know, I have to have my leads). Some parts are nice without them, but at some places it would be nice for a little melody to start playing. :)

Nice one. At the beginning, it sounds like it's going to be another one of them ambient chip deals, but no! :) It has a cool groove to it. The ending comes way too soon and abruptly however.

Good chiptune with good leads. Good composition and nice variety. It just doesn't seem to be catchy enough to get a higher rating.

A fairly good ambient piece, but I think it's too long for the amount of music in it. The good effects and samples help this out a great deal, but some of the music is just too simple. The end is kinda weird as well.

This is bad. This is a mess. There are samples that are out of tune, and the main melody plays way too much. The best part is probably the solo, but even that is detuned at quite a few points.

A fun little chiptune that contains traces of "London Bridge" and other nursery rhyme type deals. The background arpeggios seem to be a bit detuned at times.

Another good one from Nightbeat. It is expertly tracked, but it's kinda monotonous and lacks a distinctive lead melody.

Some mediocre metal. It starts out pretty fast, but it goes into some kind of doom deal for most of the song. There are also moments of extreme dissonance.

Cool one. Nice funky bass and leads. The drums are OK (the snare gets a little bit annoying). Also, the song loops, which I think is unnecessary.

I've never heard the original, but this is cool. The samples are the hight point in this song. The low points is that the tracking is sometimes a bit amateur sounding (I know all about that). :)

A good rock tune with nice atmosphere. It's just too repetitive to be "very" good. Also, the song fades out at 4:10, but it doesn't end until about 5:40.

This song starts out promising with some nice thunder effects, but the following music is really hard to handle. There isn't much direction to the melodies.
