  1. I'll do some more, and as with last time, I'll skip some songs. Megadeth – Polaris: 8/10. Good stuff. Woods of Ypres – Wet Leather: 7/10. The lyrics suck, but I try to disregard lyrics when rating a song. The song could've benefitted from better vocals, but overall it's quite enjoyable. Surprisingly happy-sounding, despite the lyrics. Very catchy. Bit repetitive though. Metallica – Fight Fire with Fire: 8/10. Good stuff. Black Math Horseman – Tyrant: 7/10. Nice and chill. Iced Earth – Raven Wing: 7/10. Enjoyable. Nice guitar solo. Heathen – Guitarmony: 7/10. It's nice. David Garret – Sandstorm (cover): 7/10. It's Darude Sandstorm. And for the latest one: Corvyx – My Immortal (Evanescence cover): 6/10. Potentially better than the original. Still kind of boring though (it tries to be beautiful and works to some extent, but not super well, in my opinion, and neither does the original). Here's something a bit older:
  2. Yeah, Mustaine has some strange ideas. That is quite unfortunate, though he's not quite as bad as, say, Varg Vikernes. Anyway, so I'm way behind, so I've decided to skip some songs in order to eventually catch up. If I skipped a song that any of you guys wanted to hear my opinion on, tell me and I'll review it later. Mozart – Turkish March (Dan Mumm) – Classical Shred Guitar: 8/10. Turkish March is a masterpiece. This is a reasonable performance, though something is... Off. I'd rather listen to some other electric guitar cover or piano performance, but this one is still good. Metallica – Orion: 8/10. Sounds nice and old school. Do I hear a hint of blues? Iron Maiden – Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: 9/10. Such a powerful song. Megadeth – My Last Words: 9/10. Full of energy, awesome guitars, and overall packs quite a punch. Lindsay Stirling – The Arena: 8/10. The violin is such an underused instrument. Unfortunately, the other music doesn't quite live up to the violin's quality, which is unfortunate. Still, Lindsay's violin playing carries the song and makes it good. Gamma Ray – All of the Damned/Rising of the Damned: 8/10. Surprisingly heavy for a power metal band. Unfortunately, the singing isn't quite strong enough to fit the heaviness of the music, which clashes a bit. I'd be interesting in hearing a cover of this with a different singer. The verses should probably have been slightly faster too. The instrumental parts are really good. The Primitives – Crash: 8/10. It shouldn't work. It's somewhat repetitive, fairly simple, and the singing is somewhat flat. Somehow it still works, though, probably because it's super catchy. Angra – Newborn Me: 7/10. It has a very ”modern” sound, which is risky when it comes to metal (and music in general). Unfortunately, I find it lacking in power and energy, despite trying. Still, it's clean and fairly catchy. The guitar solo is really nice. It has the potential to grow upon further listenings, I suppose, perhaps growing into 8/10 one day. Latest: 7Almas - Nueva Tierra: 8/10. The singer has a really nice voice, the chorus is catchy, and the guitars are nice too. This could make for a great theme song for some animated show. Now for something different:
  3. So I haven't done this in a while, so, well, here's some catching up. Demi Lovato: Heart Attack: 7/10. I'm going to assume you didn't mean for us to judge the Behind the Scenes video (if you did, 4/10, some of the talking kind of ruins the ”song”). I'd say this is one of the better modern pop songs out there: There's some variety in the instruments, there are some interesting melodies going on in the background occasionally, and the chorus is very catchy. Gamma Ray – Somewhere Out In Space: 9/10. Somewhat aggressive guitars and drumming, decent enough singing (I'm not a super fan of Kai Hansen's singing, but it's fine). The chorus is very catchy and has some punch. Voltaire – When You're Evil: 8/10. I find the dark cabaret sound interesting. Reminds me a bit of folk music with some soft rock added into it. Voltaire is a very good singer, the chorus is nice and catchy, and the song is quite fun. Angra – Wings of Reality: 6/10. It's okay, though at times the tempo seems odd to me (bit slow, but also fast). Starset – My Demons: 6/10. Decent modern rock music. Anthriel – Under Burning Skies: 7/10. Pretty good. Motörhead – Heroes: 7/10. It's good. Green Day – Boulevard of Broken Dreams: 5/10. Meh, not their best song. K-ON – No Thank You: 6/10. It's kind of catchy, but her voice doesn't work 100% together with the instruments, and at times the instruments sound a bit tame. Sigala, Ella Ella – Came Here For Love: 5/10. Generic pop song. Kind of annoying too. Diamond Head - The Prince: 7/10. Disregarding the lyrics, the song is pretty good. End Under Down – Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound: 7/10. Atmospheric. It's like... sitting in a cabin on a cold autumn night, drinking hot chocolate. Kyuss – Whitewater: 6/10. Sounds dirty, low production value. It's not for me, but it's decent enough. Nice bass. Avantasia – Serpents in Paradise: 9/10. Awesome. Great singing, great production value, catchiness, nice drumming, fairly nice variety, and very happy. XYZ – Face Down in the Gutter: 7/10. Fun. Avantasia – The Scarecrow: 8/10. Tobias Sammet is a great singer, and it's a fun song, although a bit generic (modern Edguy has a tendency to sound samey, and it carries over to this song, I suppose). It's still a very good song though. Jørn Lande has a very strong singing voice too. The slow instrumental part doesn't really work that well though. CHON – Splash: 8/10. Some really nice instrumental music. Instrumental music is underrated. And the most recent: Shelter – Porter Robinson and Madeon: 8/10. It's quite nice. Skilful playing, nice harmony, nice melodies, quite a bit of complexity to listen for and variation while being catchy. I didn't like this one that much at first, but it grew on me:
  4. Type o Negative: 8/10. It's very nice. Iron Maiden: Empire of Clouds: 10/10. Brilliant. Super Mario Odyssey: 8/10. Such a happy song. Lots of fun, and feels like Mario too. Angry:8/10. Fun and fast. Eluveitie: 8/10. Catchy, and lots of melody. Not very heavy though The Machine: 8/10. Groovy. And the most recent song: Van Halen – Dance the Night Away: 7/10. Some nice hard rock music. Zelda 3 meets jazz (correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is cool jazz):
  5. Totorro: 8/10. Dirty and rough sound, but still with interesting melodies and variety. Sounds pretty happy. Anthrax: 9/10. Some really, really good trash metal. Mono: 9/10. Atmospheric, varied, nice melodies, dirty while still positive. Jackson Breit: 6/10. It's okay. Metallica: 7/10. Undertale Trio Remix – Stronger Than You: 6/10. Disregarding the lyrics (spoilers btw!), the music itself is decent. Morbid Angel: 9/10. Technical, nice guitars, good energy. Spawn of Possession: 9/10. That drumming, so nice! Really nice guitarplaying too. Enforcer: 8/10 or 9/10. Good energy, nice (and happy) guitars, nice singing, pretty nice variation. Beauty Plus: 6/10. Elevator music. Kind of pleasant though. RWBY: 6/10. Some pretty pleasant pop and chill music, actually. Mike Perry: 6/10. Simple, but catchy. Darkness Dynamite: Song not available. Giraffage: 5/10. On one hand, it's kind of annoying and repetitive at times. On the other hand, it has some decent melodies. It gets a pass. Megadeth: 8/10. Such nice guitars. And the latest: Ghost Wavves: 5/10: Same simple melody repeated over and over again, with some variations. Annoying and boring. Still, it's kind of catchy, so I suppose I'll give it a pass. I won't deny that there's a lot of metal and hard rock, but other genres are also represented, such as punk, pop, classical, folk, jazz, rap, and electronic music. Case in point, jazz:
  6. Unleash the Archers: 8/10. It's fun, nice melodies and catchy. AC/DC: Live: 7/10. Original: 7/10. Fun song! Old school hard rock. Die Antwoord: 2/10. Lacks melody, lacks beaty, lacks energy, lacks variety, lacks complexity, overall really lacking in qualities. Freedom Call: 7/10. Freedom Call is sooo cheesy, but also fun. The guitars are a bit heavier than I'd expect from a Freedom Call song though. I like the piano-like sounds (I assume they are keyboard sounds?). Little Big: 7/10. Good energy, power, and some interesting melodies. I kind of like this, actually. Might be a good idea to avoid the music video and ignore the lyrics. They could've been the lyrics of a Death Metal song, heh. Some of the lyrics: Accept: 9/10. That intro, powerful and majestic, with some nice riffs. Good energy and good singing too. The guitar solo too, so emotional. Eazy-E: 2/10. Generic and simple beat, repetitive, and kind of boring. Tall Cans In The Air: 6/10 or 7/10: Nice energy, kind of fun. Faith No More: 6/10. Kind of repetitive verses. Still, the energy is pretty good, and the chorus is interesting, and the guitars are pretty nice at times (and the solo is really good). Orden Organ: 9/10. Catchy, powerful, atmospheric, awesome. N.W.A.: 1/10. Lacks energy, lacks melody, lacks atmosphere, lacks catchiness, lacks power, lacks complexity, lacks depth. It's also very repetitive. Transplants: 6/10. Happy atmosphere, decent background instruments, catchy lyrics, and the second verse isn't too bad. If the other verses were better this would've been a 7/10. The Police: 7/10. It's pretty fun. Alestorm: Anchor: 7/10. Catchy. Alestorm: Wolves of the Sea: 7/10 or 8/10. They're so over the top, this has to be a parody band, right? Still, it's fun over the top cheese, so why not? They don't pull it of quite as well as Gloryhammer does though, even though they're similar. And the most recent: Heavy Lord: 7/10. It's very interesting. Good, but is it great? I'm not sure, but I'm leaning towards ”no”. Still, good is still good. Time for some 19th century "dance" music!
  7. Almost caught up. Twilightning: 9/10. Excellent example on power metal done right. Full of energy, fairly technical and complex, good amount of variety, catchy chorus, good singing, and overall a ton of fun. I should check out that band! Blind Guardian: 9/10. Nightfall in Middle-Earth is one of the best power metal albums of all time, in my opinion. Agalloch: 8/10. Interesting atmosphere. Dark and cold, but also with some hope. I like it. It's not super-technical, but there's at least some complexity to it, and it creates a nice mood. While there is variation, some segments are a bit too long for their own good, so it gets repetitive at times. The song might work better as a background song, but it's really good at doing that! Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber: 4/10. The intro is nice, the singing is fairly cringeworthy (in my opinion), and the song is mostly focused on the singing. Clean Bandit ft. Zara Larsson: 6/10. With a name like ”Symphony”, you'd think they'd actually make it sound like a symphony. Anyway, it's a decent pop song. Demi Lovato: 6/10. Decent pop song. Iron Maiden: 6/10. Not everything they make is gold. Funny Song: 6/10. Pretty catchy. I generally don't want to let lyrics influence my score too much, so I tried to ignore the lyrics and just listen to the music. It's catchy, but nothing special, and the singing isn't very impressive (it's okay). Nightwish: 7/10. Good cover, but the original is better (and I also prefer Thyrfing's version). The chorus is, in my opinion, significantly worse. Judas Priest: 5/10. Kind of mediocre. James Blackshaw: 8/10. It's nice. Metallica: 7/10 or 8/10. Old Metallica had so much more energy than new Metallica. Blank Banshee: 6/10. It's chill. Good background music, not too much to actively listen to though. Hoth: 8/10. I reviewed it before. AC/DC: 7/10. Old school hard rock, why not? Jason Gray: 5/10. Okay pop music. Katy Perry Ft. Nicki Minaj: 3/10. The rapping part are plain boring, and the chorus isn't even that good. Gravedigger: 7/10. It's good, but not that special. The Band Perry: 5/10. It's fine. Bit bland, though. Milwaukee Wildmen: 6/10. Good energy, decently fun to listen to. Eluvetie: 7/10. Good ol' Tri Martolod. This version feels a bit off at times though. Still good, but could've been better. Rainbow: 9/10.Rising is, in my opinion, one of the best old school hard rock albums. Sunn O))): 6/10. Decent background music, kind of boring for active listening though, and there is better background music out there. Roper Amplify: 6/10. Fairly simple, though not really bad. EDIT: 5/10 was a bit too low, it deserves at least 6/10. And time for the latest song: Alestorm ft. Lady Gaga: 7/10. Nice drumming, the singing isn't bad, and there's some variety. At times the vocals kind of clash with the instruments though. As far as remixes go this is a pretty good one. Here's another Lady Gaga remix that I found:
  8. Van Halen: 6/10. It's decent enough. Metallica: 7/10. Not their best song, but it's still pretty good. Spawn of Possession: 9/10. Eerie atmosphere, but in a good way. Nice ”power”, and there's plenty of complexity to listen for. Demons & Wizards: 8/10. Fun times (I've reviewed this before). Most recent: CutMyLips x INODI: 8/10. I like what the bass is doing, bit more varied than bass usually is. Overall the song is pretty chill and has several different melodies going, and there's some progression and variation as well. Fun!
  9. I've almost caught up now. Ylvis: What Does the Fox Say: 6/10. Note that I don't keep music videos in mind when rating music. The vocalist can obviously sing well, overall it's well-produced (overproduced?), and there's actually some variety in the music, and the drums are surprisingly good for mainstream ”pop” music (Elecronic Dance Music, accoding to Wikipedia). I don't like the chorus though. Helloween: 7/10. Catchy. Fever: 6/10. The vocals are pretty bad, but even if they were different I doubt they'd be very impressive. The bassline is pretty nice, as is the drumming. There are some layers to this. Would I listen to this? Probably not, but I can see why people might. Demon Hunter: Subjective: 6/10 or 7/10. Objective: 7/10 or 8/10. The intro is nice, with a catchy melody. I dislike the singing, sounds too much like Chester in Linkin Park. The chorus is borderline whiny, but not quite. The song has a lot of good points, such as pretty good melodies, not being oversimplified, and overall easy to listen to. Would I listen to it myself? Probably not, but I totally understand why people would. The chorus is kind of catchy too. Brocas Helm: 8/10. This song could've been awesome with some improvements, now it's ”merely” great. Good technicallity, energy, and decent enough vocals. Something is ”off” though, which makes me deduct a point (which, granted, 8/10 is still a great score). Could be the low production value, or just something being off. Judas Priest: 7/10 or 8/10. Painkiller with some symphonic metal elements? Huh. The guitars are pretty nice at times, adding some extra layers to listen to, though I'm not sure if the symphonic elements really fit Judas Priest. Still, it's a pretty good song. The atmosphere feels somewhat ”odd” though, and not in a good way. Altar of Oblivion: 8/10. Those guitars. I'm not a super fan of the singing, but those guitars. Death Angel: 6/10. The vocals to instrumental music balance is a bit off (the vocals are too loud compared to the instrumental music). The singing isn't particularly impressive either, and the instrumental music is fairly repetitive, without being very inspiring. The guitar solo is pretty nice though. Oh, and @Soaring Symphony, that isn't death metal, it's somewhat slow trash metal (for trash metal's standards, anyway). Lullaby for a Princess: 7/10. The the Luna vocalist isn't the strongest, but the Celestia vocalist partly makes up for it with beautiful singing and emotions (though the song would be better if she were a slightly stronger singer). The piano is very nice and emotive. The song is far too long though, it gets a bit repetitive. Trelleborg: 7/10. Some nice melodies. Sometimes it sounds a bit artificial though, like it was made by synths rather than real instruments (which is probably the case, to be fair). Itsalloverme: 1/10. Let's see... When making good music good, it needs to have some good aspects. It doesn't need to have every good aspect, but at least one or two (preferably more). Melody, energy, beauty, emotions, harmony, complexity, variety, catchiness, technicality, production value, power, and atmosphere are the major aspects I would ascribe to good music. There are probably a few others that I forgot, too. This song is lacking in melody, energy, beauty, emotions, harmony, complexity, variety, catchiness, technicality, power, and atmosphere. It sounds mostly like random noise to me. On the up side, the production value isn't bad. Still though, I'm curious: Which aspects of the song makes you like it? I'm not saying you're necessarily wrong, it's possible I've overlooked some vital aspects, though I'm currently not seeing it. Dream Theater: 8/10. Good atmosphere, very good production value, pretty good singing, sometimes fairly complex guitars, some variety. Anthriel: 9/10 or 10/10. Awesome stuff, I should check out that band! Decent energy, good power, really nice variety, fairly good complexity, really good melodies, and nice and cheerful and folky atmosphere. Also, the vocalist is really impressive, better than most metal singers. Easily one of the best songs posted in this thread that I haven't heard before. Angra: 8/10 or 9/10. That guitar solo! Good energy, nice melodies, plenty of things to listen to, good harmony. Poison: 7/10. Catchy. ABSRDST & Diveo: 5/10 or 6/10. Various melodies, good ”power” at times, decent amount of variety, sometimes catchy. Parts of the song is annoying though, but overall it's pretty decent. I like parts of the song, and dislike parts of it. Unfortunately, the parts I dislike take up quite a significant portion of the song. Sabaton: 7/10. Very catchy (and cheesy) chorus. Perhaps too cheesy, it doesn't quite fit Sabaton. Still, it's fun. Morning Mimosa: 6/10. Generic drumming, kind of slow. It gets kind of boring and repetitive with active listening, but... It's not too bad as background music, and it got a pretty nice ”groove.” Unleash the Archers: 8/10. Nice. Van Canto: 8/10. At first, I wasn't too big of a fan, but it grew on me upon further listenings. Aurelleah & Kadenza: 7/10. Happy, cheerful, catchy, with some melodies. Fun times. Diamond Head: 8/10. Old school. Van Halen: 7/10. It's pretty cool that many old rock bands dared to use unconvential instruments. Last one for now: Eiffel 65: 6/10. I'm blue... Wait, they made more than one song? Huh. It's decent. We've done the original, and the Nightwish cover. Time for the Thyrfing cover!
  10. Due to the lack of responses I have decided to start a new tournament on Reddit, with only 64 characters and new seeds. If you're interested, check out this link: If you want to just immediately vote:
  11. Metallica: Dream No More: 6/10 or 7/10. Not quite as good as their old stuff, but still enjoyable enough. Dio: 7/10. It's a nice song. Judas Priest: 8/10. Old school, nice and fun. Raubtier: 6/10. Angry, and somewhat happy-ish, but not terribly technical or anything. Still manages to feel ”powerful” and somewhat ”heavy”-ish. Metallica: Ecstasy of Gold: 8/10- The original is awesome, and this is a good rendition. Some of the mid-song ”wonkiness” didn't quite fit though. Can't blame it for not being technical though (even the drumming is above average). Stepdad: Subjective: 6/10. Objective: 7/10. I probably wouldn't listen to this myself, but this song has a lot of good qualities and I can see why others might like it. It's somewhat varied, has more than one layer of music to listen to, it sets a weirdly happy mood, and is pretty pleasant overall. Rytmeklubben: 3/10. Repetitive, annoying, bad vocals. Some variety and melody helps it from going lower. Galneryus: 9/10. I don't know if I would call it Visual Kei? Musically, it's more like power metal with some neo-classical influences. The guitar solo is awesome, and overall the song is a lot of fun. Iron Maiden: 5/10. An Iron Maiden song that's not all that good? … Huh. The guitars are, surprisingly enough, fairly simple and repetitive, the singing is nothing special (Blaze Bailey is not nearly as good of a singer as Bruce Dickinson, in my opinion), and the song lacks energy. Louis the Child: 2/10. Slow for no good reason, boring, and slightly annoying. The singing is sub-par, the instruments are repetitive and fairly simple, and it has very few reedeming qualities from what I can hear. Moana Remix: 5/10. Right. So the song clearly has good parts (lots of cheery melodies and such), but I can clearly tell that it's meant to be sung, not played instrumentally. It doesn't work, especially with those instruments. Still, it's decent enough to listen to. City of Ships: 4/10. The singing sounds so whiny. Some of the acoustic guitars are pretty nice, and this could've been a decent song if the singing weren't so whiny. This song would have been a lot better if it were instrumental (in my opinion, at least). Fleetwood Mac: 6/10. Pleasant and nice, though a bit repetitive. Good background music. Accept: 8/10. At times, this song is clearly 9/10. At other times, it's 7/10. Overall, I give it an 8/10. Aaand one more: Head Machine: 7/10 or 8/10. It's nice. Time for some traditional folk music.
  12. Still catching up. Enforcer: Mask of the Red Death: 8/10. Pretty good singing, nice guitars, some variety. Cheat Codes: 4/10. Pop music usually ranged from 4-6, with a few going lower than 4 and a few higher than 6. This song is simply (like most pop music), repetitive (more than average), and not very catchy (pop music is usually catchy). It's also slightly annoying. I dislike it. Helloween: 8/10. Happy and fun. Demi Lovato: Heart Attack: 5/10. Not the catchiest of pop music, but not really annoying either. It gets a pass. Fairly generic though and simple. Iron Maiden: 9/10. The intro is 10/10. Tatsuro Yamashita: 5/10. Reminds me of elevator music. Simple, calm, yet not very exiting. Moon on the Water: 6/10. Decent enough. Devi Lovato: Neon Lights: 5/10 or 6/10. Bit catchier, still generic and simple though. Snow halation: 6/10. The instruments are pretty nice. The singers remind me a bit of Spice Girls. It's a decent enough pop song, above average. Zedd: 6/10. Sounds like something a Scandinavian country might send for Eurovision. Could win Eurovision, I suppose. Hammerfall: 6/10 or 7/10. It tries a bit too much to have a catchy chorus, something older Hammerfall songs did better without feeling so forced. The guitar solo is nice though. Fullmetal Alchemist: 7/10 or 8/10. It's nice! Varied, the singing is (surprisingly enough) pretty decent, and it's overall pretty fun. ElectroSWING: 6/10. Pretty nice, but it gets repetitive. Pony Girl: 5/10. A slightly worse version of Aqua's ”Barbie Girl”. Katy Perry: 5/10. She's trying the ”Justin Timberlake”-like approach, but it doesn't fit her. Somewhat boring and generic. Enforcer: Take Me Out of this Nightmare 2013: 8/10 or 9/10. Fast, energetic, catchy, and reasonably varied and technical. Lots of fun! I hope Rob Paravonian isn't following this thread... Heh. (Oh hey, for some comedy, don't rate this)
  13. Still catching up. Lordi: Blood Red Sandman: 8/10. Surprisingly dark and heavier than what Lordi would usually do. Bit less cheesy too. Catchy and fun. I prefer the CD version (without the screams) though. Blitzkrieg: 6/10. It's okay. 100mods: 7/10. Some nice rock music. Steppenwolf: 5/10. It's okay, I guess? Feels like elevator music. SMASH!: 7/10. Catchy. Heathen: 7/10. Good stuff, very old school. Enforcer: 8/10. Nice guitars, and good energy too. Puscifer: 5/10. I decided to try to ignore the lyrics and mostly focus on the music. Even then, it's not really great. Kind of repetitive and generic, though not really bad. The lyrics may make the song amusing for some, I suppose, though I personally didn't didn't find it very funny. Bruce Dickinson: 7/10. I've reviewed this one earlier. Metal Church: 8/10. Good energy, nice overall. Epic Sax Guy & CO: 6/10. Fun with memes and all, but musically it doesn't fit that well. Still, somewhat enjoyable. Baroness: 6/10 or 7/10. Not bad. Alan Walker: Subjective: 6/10. Objective: ?. It's fairly enjoyable, though not a genre of music I'd listen to often. Still, there's some melody there and some variety too. Meshuggah: Subjective: 4/10, Objective: ?. I don't like this. I don't like the vocals (sound close to alternative-metal/nu-metal), the guitars are rather simplistic (if somewhat different), and overall it's kind of boring. Scorpions: 7/10. Fun. Yung Bae: 4/10. I found it mildly annoying. Aaaand the most recent one: Iron Maiden: Live: 9/10. Original: 9/10. Great stuff. The original has clearer production value, while the live version has Bruce Dickinson on vocals. Both are awesome. Digital cookie to whoever gets the reference. Hint: American animated satire. :
  14. So much to catch up still. Well, I did some! Beastie Boys: 6/10. Huh. Rap/rock/punk-ish music. Very different from what I'd usually listen to, but it has some good qualities. The Sword: 7/10. Some pretty nice hard rock (it is hard rock, right?). Gary Moore: 10/10. A classic. Gnaw Their Tongues: Subjective: 3/10. Objective: ?/10. ”That heavy metal music is just noise”. This is closer to ”just noise”, but I can still hear some musical qualities in this. This very much seems like an aquired taste, one that I have not aquired, so I don't like it. As for an objective score... Um, I don't really know which criteria I would use to judge it. Dance Gavin Dance: 4/10. The singer sounds whiny. This is like, happy punk music that tries to be energetic but fails? The drumming is not too bad, but the guitars are meh and the vocals are bad, and the atmosphere is weirdly happy, which doesn't really work for this song. Sabaton: 5/10. Metal balads rarely work, and this is no exception. A lot of what makes metal good is gone in many metal balads. This one is too simple, lacks power, and lacks energy. It might not be bad, but it's not really good either. Vintage Trouble: 6/10. It's okay, I suppose. Black Sabbath: 8/10. You can really feel the blues influences in this song. Sophia Anne Caruso: 6/10. The arrangement is good, although it's very focused on the vocals. The singer clearly has some skill, yet she sounds rather young... She has great potential, and in a few years I'd be interested in seeing her sing this song (or, well, hearing her). Overall, good song, but the singer is a bit too young (for now). Rainbow: 8/10. Dio! Good energy and overall enjoyable song. Hunchback of Notre Dame (Swedish): 8/10. The English version is better. Lucky Star the Trooper: 2/10. Sacrilege? Maybe. Bloodborne: 8/10. It's nice. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: 4/10. It had potential but ended up being somewhat annoying. Dio: 8/10 or 9/10. Dio! 2CELLOS: 6/10. The ”Whole Lotta Love” rendition doesn't reall work. The Beethoven parts are pretty good though (though it lacks power, which is a shame, since it's his 5th Symphony, one of the most powerful pieces of classical music). Iron Maiden Banjo: 5/10. The banjo is ap retty cool instrument. Unfortunately, it doesn't really work for this cover. The flute (or whichever instrument that is) didn't work either.. Russkaja: 7/10 or 8/10. It's interesting. Lots of melodies, energy, folk, and ska influences. Steve'n'Seagulls: 6/10. Great song performed without much energy or power. It gets a bit better near the end. Rednex: 6/10. Disregarding the lyrics the actual music isn't too bad. The instrumental music is better than the singing. Touhou: 4/10. It's slightly annoying. Shame, since the original music it's based on is great. Death Devil Maddy Candy: 3/10. Sounds dirty, and not in a good way. Mediocre singing (and kind of whiny at times), guitars that mostly sound loud without adding too much energy or interesting melodies. Final Fantasy: Matoya's Cave: 6/10. Wow, that's a poor remix... The original is much better. This has a very ”midi” sound. Unfortunate. The original is a 9. Fire Emblem: 8/10. Not the best rendition of the music, but still really good. Bendy och Bläckmaskinen: 7/10. The piano is nice and overall the song is pretty fun. Demon's Souls: 8/10. Atmospheric and emotional. Lordi: Beast Loose In Paradise: 6/10. Generic Lordi song. Catchy, but not much else. Helloween: 7/10. It's pretty good. Lordi: Kita: 7/10. It's Lordi. Catchy, but not terribly varied, original, or technical. Nichijou: 4/10. It's kind of annoying. Seagulls: 5/10. Kind of repetitive, the singing isn't very good, and it almost gets annoying. Okay, that's enough for now. One final review: K-ON!: 4/10. I find it slightly annoying.

    After having rewatched the episode a few times (by watching people reacting to it), my opinion of it is much more positive than before. Applejack's behavior is still a bit annoying, but it doesn't annoy me that much anymore, especially since I know it ends well. Overall, it's a pretty good episode with some funny moments. Would watch again.
