I dont get it. It sounds like something people 10 years younger and much cooler than I am would listen to. New school.

I'm gonna post two. Old school. Hows this for groovy?

This music is just not my thing, so I will abstain from rating it on any scale as it would be an unfair rating. Objectively speaking however, it follows the musical theory to a tee, and subjectively speaking, the video seems to have been done quite artistically.

Interesting mix of 50s style pop rock with a punkish flavour. Liked the melancholic part around 2:20. I rate 7.5/10.

I don't think i've heard this one before. I prefer Untilted and Confield but this is clearly enjoyable aswell. EDIT: A number ok. 7/10. But i'm tired of my own 7s.

Here is an artist i've sometimes thought of as the continuation or even improvement upon Autechre's heritage:

Not bad, the artist has a basic understanding of melody. I'm confused as whether to think of the various distortions as intentional rhythmic/arrhythmic elements or as mere gadgets and mindlessly pressed buttons. Something about equalization was off. 6/10, interesting but not edible.

Overall it was enjoyable to listen to however I felt it could somehow merge it's parts together a tad better. (I'm talking only about the final movement - Anime) Whenever it would slowly die off and then change it's pace/melody I just felt there had to be a better way. In other cases that kind of disjointed connectedness worked well...just sometimes it didn't. That aside it was refreshing to listen to. Can not complain.

7.7/10

She's a decent singer and while I fully appreciate the concept here and the structure driving the song forward, I think that the actual execution of the production was just too contrived and commercialized for my own liking: 5.7/10

Close to the the mark in terms of the kind of music that I like. Too monotonous however for casual listening, but otherwise a really good instrumental for ambiance. Unfortunately, the out of tune vocals kill it IMO. The second part of the song without the vocals is better. 6.5/10

This song has literally brought tears to my eyes every single time I've listened to it. Every single time. It makes me think of my two sons. Brothers. The happiest, most beautiful thought I've ever been able to muster is that they get a chance at life - all of the happiest memories I have from my childhood...the ups and downs, they get to have all of it...and they will always have each other, through it all.

I dont like rap, or hip hop or whatever you call it (though I did like Eminem when I was younger and some Weird Al parodies,) but I give it a 10/10 for black rappers who are (at least on this occasion) not sexualizing women and acting like pimps, or calling them "bitches." Leaving the police alone is refreshing and not calling for violence or advocating for drugs (not to mention the way the guy speaks clearly and, for the most part properly pronouncing words.) If it also didnt have the word "nigga" in it itd be in 11/10 in my book, but I realize that it has to sell.

BTW, howd you miss rating my Philip Glass upload, PaulMaster? No matter, heres another one:

Thanks for showing me that. It's kind of a new thing to me.

7/10

Haha, the part beginning at 2:33 in your song is even kinda similar to the main riff of this one:

I was completely blown away by this... Let's see what someone thinks.

8/10. That was possibly the first song in this thread that I actually enjoyed without having to try to enjoy it.

Continuing along the lines of forgotten disco music (albeit this ones much more niche, so much so to the point that only a small percentage of Japanese people are familiar with it: )

Intense as fuck

3/10. My sister played it to death, sorry D:

Puffy's song: can't decide how to rate it with numbers.. 7.5/10? Not what I usually listen to, but I enjoyed it.

Ever heard Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd?

#### Starfishtea

I like that. It's really slow, but the music boxy sounds make up for it. The background woooiwoo sounds reminds me of an abandoned alien planet. The only thing that's nagging on me is the feeling that it never really starts or goes anywehere. I'd give it a 7.5/10.

Pretty damn good. Haunting, funky and colorful. 9.74/10

Love it. Always reminds me of the scene in Aviator where he burns his clothes. 9.2/10
