I'm somewhat a fan of Weezer, in that what little I've heard from them I've liked, also one of the guys from Freezepop really likes them.

This? It's pretty good. Catchy. Um, 6/10 (3/5). I wouldn't mind hearing more, but I'm not going out of my way to hear more stuff like this right now. Maybe in the future.

I liked that. Reminded me of a little Bee Gees, a little Jackson 5, a little MGMT, and a little Black Kids. Kind of. Maybe. If you squint.

Sorry bud but the synth-rock genre just isn't appealing to me. I'll give it 6/10 because I though it was well produced.

Breakcore is so boring; the genre has slumped into rehashed conventions and tactics. I don't even feel like these people are trying to make music anymore. 4/10

Pretty funky beat, but a little repetitive. Liked some of the solos though; the saxophone was cool. 6/10

NA NA, NA NA NA NA!

The song listed above was far better than my expectations had put it at with only 32 views.
Some great beats, there seem to be a lot of undiscovered FLstudio musical geniuses.

7/10

The first 50 seconds was good "old school video game music". The rest of the song was quite jumpy/itchy? But the melody and drumming is above average. Vocals - not bad. 6.5/10.

For some reason it reminded me of Hercules and Love Affair, though there really isn't much of a connection between the two. 6/10.

This literally made me want to take a shit.

Like, I was watching it, bowels completely uninflamed, and then, Kuzzuah! Shits Ahoy!

So, while I would rate it relatively low as a song (3/10) for being boring and repetitive, I would give it 9/10 as a laxative.

It reminded me of another song I really like, but for some reason I can't quite put my finger on it. Looking at the rest of the album, vocals aside some of it was similar to Spoon's A Series of Sneaks, and perhaps a bit of Telephono/Soft Effects, though the song Box Elder reminded me more of The Strokes. 8.2/10

Fantastic. 8/10. It reminded me of Kingdom Hearts for some reason. On that note, Passion by Utada Hikaru.

Ugh, this is an awful song. I have two thoughts: either it was meant to be a satire of songs like Adam's Song or Jeremy Spoke in Class Today and it's totally classless or it's sincere and the forced rhymes, rudimentary instrumentation and corny vocals are the just mark of a talentless band.

Nevermind, just listened to another song. It's not satire. 0/10

Once it got to about 3:15 i was in love, but everything up to that point annoyed me in some way (except the early instrumentals)
Great song, but it takes a little too long to get off the ground, imo.
(some bass couldn't hurt, but maybe its not in the style of breakcore. i wouldn't know, i don't listen to the stuff enough)

8/10

While it was certainly entertaining at the beginning, it doesn't really improve. This is the kind of song better enjoyed in a group, not necessarily because it's good music, but because the alternative - sitting in your car alone listening to this and shouting "CUMMING ON YOUR FACE" to no one in particular - strikes me as sad. 4/10

It's boring. I mean, the guitar is distorted so much that you barely hear it; the singing is obviously meant to dominate the song. But the singer isn't exactly great either, and the lyrics are pretty lame. As far as I could tell, there's one verse, and it's repeated in the second half of the song. There isn't a whole lot of progression through the thing. You could play it in an elevator or something and I don't think you'd hear any complaints. Maybe it's not a very good quality video? 2/10.

I really liked the beginning. It was all ominous and brooding, and then this gentle acoustic cuts in, but it's still got a kind of haunting vibe to it. But then the rest of the song is fairly straightforward Southern rock, which I'm not that into. 6/10

It's interesting...not something I'd listen to on a daily basis, but intriguing simply for it's tenacious vocal style and engaging instrumentals. 7.5/10

The first time I heard this guy I was listening to Hercules and Love Affair's "Blind" and I never would have guessed that he looked like this. Despite that, however, I love the vocals. 7.5/10
