The previous comment says it all, but it is, to my opinion, seriously under rated. Only complain the end is not as outstanding as the song itself but it still deserves a 10, to my personal taste anyway.

Not much my type either but it is technically outstanding and I enjoyed it the hell a lot. To be listened to till the end.

Very interesting song. Too messy in my opinion but still. The musical scale and the chord sequence are really unusual yet coherent. What a mess, what a spectacle, well done!

Sorry I don't get it. This music is too sophisticated for me or perhaps my mind is too narrow to process it. There is no coherence, the melody is not touching. But technically it is good. It is probably just a matter of taste.

It is technically good but I am not emotional about the composition, it sounds a bit like a computer have generated that, it should sound good but yet something coherent is missing. It's perhaps just a matter of taste. It was still enjoyable to some extent (the beginning and the end for instance).

Interesting... this song is so close to me I could have composed it identically notes to notes. Humble pleasant chiptune ballade.

There's something I really like about this song. Calm. The chord score is unusual, melody is very simple but fits well. Perhaps more variety would have been welcome and ending is disappointing, but it is still a great song that, if you have similar taste, may really like.

Nice ballad from JAM. Simple but touching. A sweeping synthetic sample pulses the tempo at the start, it is sorta of unusual but why not, contributes to create this unusual atmosphere which is proper to JAM's songs.

It starts with a soft electric guitar, quite credible and it sounds well. Then traditional evolution with drums and a chorus in the middle. Sometimes it sounds too dry and electro but overall it is nice.

Not bad but there are interferences between bass frequencies... The piano is too dry (as usual though ;-).

It is good but the bass is too messy, creating interference with other bass sounds. The solo lead in the middle is very good and the chimes in the background too. Good ending with higher intensity. Song is too short.

It start with a jungle-like beat, then comes a killing lead line that sets the level of the song. Very good all the way, perhaps the transposing at the end is a bit easy but it feels quite natural so. Well done again man.

First it starts well with an interesting drum beat. Then things get speedy, but it feels natural. Very positive energy. Changes in the middle to break the monotony but right in place. I only regret it does not loop to the very start so I can hear the intro again. If you want to begin the day in a good mood go for it.

It starts very promising, to be excellent I should say, but then in the middle the song is transposed at a lower tone and it hurts my sensibility, I was so much into it and then BANG, the tone gets lower... Otherwise it is really well done.

Rather classic techno-dance. Technically well done, I would appreciate more space atmosphere though, the pizzicato is too dry for instance, but I like the FM sweeping sound in the background.

Very very retro house mod. The speech sample does not particularly fit and becomes rapidly annoying. Entertaining though.

Technically perfect (WAVE's standard). It's very funky, melody stays stuck into your head. This aggressive speedy trumpet is really on place and sometimes the bass answers the trumpet. Super cool.

Dark song. Not too bad but the piano is too much out of place to me, perhaps if it was a real one that could have been acceptable.

Good things and bad things. For instance the syncope bass at the start creates a nice effect when the drums arrive (position 6). But Position 8 really shows the lack of experience of the author, it is too pre-visible (of course it is easier to tell for an outsider). At position D a nice sample arrives but then at position F the bass makes the overall harmonic picture messy. It still has some amateurish charm though...

Rather simplistic chiptune mod. Seems like a nostalgic song, there is some sadness but a sweet one. Not really strong technically but sorta moving.

The title is well chosen. The atmosphere is dark and sluggish. Once again I'm unsatisfied with the piano, too dry, too synthetic. Interesting still.

This is not easy to rate. Technically it is not particularly strong, but it has something insane and original. The piano (so to speak) is too dry and the drum line too loud. But it remains an interesting song.

Relaxing, emotional but not overdone. Technically perfect, as far as I can judge. The beginning of the second part is more tense and right in place, it breaks what could have been monotonic and adds to the "story" line. Good work.
