Normally I find this type of thing irritating, but I really loved the part from :35 to :43. Really clever and catchy what you did there, and you'll be wanting to hear it over and over again. Nice!
My Second Song
You've definitely got something going with this. I don't like the track that comes in at 0:24, you might want to at least do something about that. Overall, this sounds pretty good so far.
Pretty good overall, I enjoyed it. ...Not much else I can say really, it's just good.
And to the guy below me... It's called house music. We don't use "riffs" copied and pasted nine hundred times. They're loops, and that's what makes house music what it is. Perhaps it just isn't suitable to your taste.
This was really cool. I wish I could do this kind of thing. I just don't know how to mess with all of the sound effects and stuff. I just wish that that the beat lasted a little longer. Same goes for II, except in that one the beat kept stopping too often. Nonetheless, they're both cool.
The way I did this was intentional. Beats coming and going in a backdrop of ambient beauty. Much like a beautiful woman in lovely area of nature. They come, they go and are hard to keep a hold of without a hard effort.
And thank you for your listen and review.

It definitely sounds like you put a lot of work into these. I think you overdid it with the drums on some of them though. It's still sweet overall. I would never have the patience to remake any of these songs that well.
Pokemon Sinnoh Pokerap
You did an awesome job with your rap, at least from my point of view. At first I thought that the background music was awesome too, but then it occurred to me that it was too good to be originally written by one of the people here on Newgrounds. Looking through your reviews, I noticed that you said that it was based on "2BA Master," which admittedly I've never heard before since I don't watch the anime, I only play the video games. So I decided to listen to it. Did you make the remix yourself? You did a great job with it if you did.
The main thing keeping me from giving you a ten is... there's no beat! Where is it? You've got an awesome bassline, some sweet percussion, and even lyrics, but... no beat? I'm sure you could have done it, considering the talent it took to do the rest of this. I didn't really like the overall song the first time I listened to it because I thought it was rather dull, but it grew on me once I listened to it again... about 28 or so times...
Still, it's really catchy and definitely deserving of the praise it's had. How the score went down as much as it did is beyond me though... Maybe it would've been nice if it was a little longer... but what can I say, I've got electronic music all over my iTunes, I'm more used to these 5-7 minute songs, I guess there isn't really much more length that this needs. Do another rap with all of the pokemon, that'd be pretty sweet, heheh... yeah, probably not happening any time soon.
Sorry if my review is rather confusing, I just have some trouble organizing all of my ideas in a way that makes sense. Seeing other reviews of people exerting their bias towards their hate of pokemon and the memories of seeing the show in the past is very saddening though, nobody should be writing reviews unless they can offer constructive criticism and they are into the genre and concept.
No worries, it's not confusing at all! In fact, I had a fun time reading it, so please excuse my horrible attempt to answer everything you've written.
I find it ironic that you use having only played the video games as your reason for not recognizing the song, because the song ISN'T from the anime; it's from a VIDEOGAME called "Pokemon Puzzle League" that was released for the Nintendo 64. There's your little funfact for the day ;D
Sorry, man, but there won't be a rap with all 493 Pokemon. Not only does Nintendo's having done all the other raps so far make it an unoriginal concept, there's NO POSSIBLE WAY I could incorporate music that would stay interesting for that long.
As for your comments on the reviews of others, all I can say is that it's expected. The hilarious thing is that my ORIGINAL Pokerap Submission, which is still in my portfolio here on NG and has a MUCH WORSE QUALITY AND RECORDING, is still above a 4.00 in score. It's all because of list placement, and who you happen to be above, the latter of which is perhaps the most biased concept to base a review on.
Such is NG.
Thanks for listening!
It's a pretty good remix overall. I don't know what "zero mixing" means, but the sax is way too loud. Maybe that's what you meant when you siad it was quite unbalanced... You should do "Canteloupe Island" next.
Yup, that's what I meant.
I just transcribed the song for Jurian, and decided I might as well record it :P
I've been going through your list of songs, and I'm going to say that this one is my favorite. I like the main loop a lot. I notice that a lot of your songs seem to have a very abrupt change somewhere in the middle, I found that a bit annoying but with thins song it's good. It's also a shame that the program that you use has a pretty weak beat, that's just not right! Well, this one's still worthy of a download from Yo Shee.
I would've responded to the reviews that you wrote for my songs, but thanks to this recent new layout I'm all confused and I don't know how to respond anymore... But thanks anyway. Seizure is my most significant older composition, and it definitely deserves the praise that it gets. I made it way back in March 2005, so my style has been changing a lot. That one was definitely a gem, though.
Another thing is that I'm trying to upload more songs, but now Newgrounds doesn't like Safari anymore for some reason? What the hell! Gaaaaah!
Haunted (Dub Demo Edit)
This has gotta be one of my favorite tracks on the NG portal. It's such a shame that it has a low rating. I want to hear an extended mix, this one is quite short. Great job.
Hey Boy Hey Girl (CnB Remix)
You did a pretty good job remixing this song. I haven't listened to the original in a few months, but still, this mix is pretty sweet. I'll have to try remixing the Chemical Brothers one day...
