Talented musicians, not bad technically at all. I think they lack a bit of creativity tho. Most of those riffs seem a bit generic IMO.

INTP/10

OK, but seriously, it's a little more mechanical than what I would normally listen to. The physics in the song are interesting, for sure. It's very systematic - follows a pattern. This is both a strength and a weakness in that it give the music incredible structure but it makes it come across as a bit too... logical. It is, however, a great beat to keep the rhythm to and it accomplishes this very well.

6.5/10

It reminds me a lot of this song:

A good production, somewhat interesting Trent-Reznor inspired intro (initial 13 secs or so). Other than that, perhaps due my untrained ear is unable to hear to nuances of this style of music, it sounds to me somewhat generic and very similar to a multitude of Linkin-Park style copies. I get the feeling that the artist is more interested in the commercial aspects of running a band than the art and music itself. So my judgment: 4/10

Who is this guy Mozart? Never heard of him.

Nah, you're right, it is objectively beautiful. There's something about it that speaks to the soul. Full score on this one.

Atmospheric, compex rythms, mix of synthesized and organic sounds. Pretty much everything I love. 10/10.

Just listened to Bring Down the Power (not going to listen to any more of these atm).

Seems to be the kind of music that is more focussed on the experience than the music itself due to it repetitive nature. However, and I don't know the exact lyrics for this, but it seems the song is not only about "bringing down the power" but also raising the power for the self. There was a line I thought was clever, actually. They talked about bringing down the power and then having the fulfillment of power in themselves... or something like that.

As far as music tastes go, this is not very near to what I would find myself listening to in my free time. Reason for this is that, like I touched on earlier, it's a bit repetitive and there really is no climax either.

4/10

Yeah not bad. Well-crafted pop. Can definitely appreciate some sexy dudes sometimes. 7.5/10

I would go gay for the dudes in this video:

Plus for being experimental. Instrumental track is quite good. I couldn't get into the use of the vocals in that way though. Waited throughout the song for something new to happen but in never did. 5.5/10

3/10, JJ isn't my cup of tea, but I could see this song being used in a movie where the time set is spanned across years. Idk why.

I couldn't give it a bad score, but I'm just lost for words, and also quite lost in general.

And then I was found.

I think it's more likely that I will learn to enjoy eating cement than enjoying that music

I really like this.
(Things like this are what make forums special, nowadays google et als algorithms are all geared towards feeding you more and more of what you already listen to. It's really hard to come across something new and novel.)

Really like this. It's complex without trying too hard.
4 min in, still like it bunches, possibly more.
9.8-10/10

actually enjoyed some aspects of it, despite never listening to this kind of music otherwise. For example the first 20 seconds of the first song and some other aspects of the instrumentals. but the screaming style vocal is way, way out of my comfort zone. 5.5/10.

I'd give it 8/10, good for solitary walks at night. Makes me feel like I'm on a mission that is important for society and it will have a lasting impact on my life.

4.5/10, used to be a ~6.5 It's not bad the first few times I listened to it, but then I realized it lacks depth and it sounds repetitive and now I can't stand it.

Edit: :D I'm being extra snarky because I just found Heilung, which sounds 10/10 to me atm, and I'm comparing it to that. But who knows. In a week, Heilung could be a 3.

fascinating, i give it a 6/10 for keeping me interested for 2 minutes.
was expecting it to become viking metal with some heavy guitar at some point.

Liked the melodic aspects of it, the mood. That bassdrum is way damn pronounced thogh – feel like someone is punching me in the ears. 6.5/10

not sure about this one. It contains all the right elements, but ends up being a somewhat uninspired copy of Uppermost (listen to for example "step by step" or "beautiful light"). 5.5/10.

I only get pieces of this one so 9.5/10. Very heavy - very long range.

Ok the rock part freaked me out a bit at 30. Oh okay, screamo song I see @ 1. I don't listen to metal haha :x Sorry, this is going to be hard for me.

You should pray for Patience... I mean it's an interesting phrase, I guess. I'll give it 6/10 :D


Since we're going with rock..
