Pretty good, I love the vocals, although it was a bit repetitive for a 7 minute song. 8/10

5/10, got kind of old by the third minute. As metal gets increasingly detuned and quiet, it starts to sound more and more like what the kids in first-year guitar used to play back in high school.

Hey, trance! I'm predicting there's a supersaw-heavy breakdown in it. Yup, at 1:58. And again at 4:05. Called it. Of course, it's not like I'm surprised. Trance isn't really my thing (though I kinda like psytrance and acid trance), but this doesn't have anything that I aggressively hate. Also it's cheesy, which I have a weakness for. So, I guess 3/5, would not mind hearing again but I don't like how it's manipulating my emotions.

I didn't like it. It was like 2 minutes long, for one thing, and it was just generally repetitive and kinda annoying. 4/10.

I suppose it would be better if I played Zelda games. However, even if I understood the references, I still don't really like the song all that much. 4/10.

3/10. With all due respect, it sounds like two songs playing on top of one another that weren't meant to play on top of another.

9/10. Really relaxing; loved the bass. The music video suited the song too.

Your friend is decent. The progression and structure implemented are nothing new, which is weird because I have no idea what I'm talking about, but it's enjoyable nonetheless.

Your link is dead. I'm sure it was a very nice song, though. 4/7.

Sorry glomx, harsh noise has never been my thing; I always wish they'd do more rhythmic development of the noise (but I guess that isn't the point... especially as it's a genre that prides itself on being "non music").

5/10. The guy's going so fast against slow, calming music that it really grinds my ears. Also, I'm not really a spoken word person unless the music itself is good as well, and most spoken word's just what that is: A beat and a guy.

some solid lyrical stuff, nice guitars, but you were right about the audio quality.. sounded like it was recorded on a cassette tape at a live gig.

Anyway, this is a beautiful relaxing piece from Myst co-creator Robyn Miller: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXSzoNdfIHM
