If the beat was a bit faster I might like that one, it's catchy but a bit dark for my tastes

Criterion Pro Tie Con Points
Winner 1 point
Reason:
Pro:
Saints: loved the epic feel, didn’t seem let down by the slow pace, which is normally the undoing of this style of track. The dramatic quality was very movie score like, but it had a lot going for it: 8.
Too late: identical theatrical style to the previous. The build up was as good, but the drop wasn’t as epic or climactic as the last one. 7
New Drug: the build up felt like a modern take on a track lifted from Jilted Generation. I really loved the build up, but the drop didn’t match the build up. The intricacy Of the start, of matched up with the climactic drops of the first two tracks would have been an easy 10; but I felt the drop let this one down, and left me feeling disappointed: 6
Stay the same: This was a reasonably good track. I wouldn’t scream home about it, but the bassy feel of the drop fit well with the more minimalistic vocals. I find when a song is stripped down of complex layers like this - you need an epic hook up build the song around: while the hook was interesting, it wasn’t memorable enough to carry the song, leaving this one a good track but nothing to push it over the edge to great: 7.
Love me less: so this isn’t the what I think of when I think EDM, but it is still technically there. For me EDM is about the atmosphere of the song, the build up, the drop and the layering. The atmosphere was more of a mainstream song, there wasn’t really a build up drop or layers to it. The song was catchy, but this really didn’t zing for me at all: 6.
Pro: 34
Con:
Decoy world: epic. The intricate repeats and variations in the chorus is everything I love about EDM, and while I think it would have been better with a faster drum track - I really enjoyed the build up and break down. The catchiness was a bit lower than many other tracks I’ve heard, which together with the lack of pounding bass is what makes me drop this one short, but it didn’t feel out of place as some low tempo songs so, so I’ll drop only one point: 9
Infinite: i started off unimpressed by this one, but with the noise cancelling earphones, the drop was intense. I absolutely loved the intricacy in the main drop. This is one place where the slow tempo (have I mentioned this is not normally my thing??) made this track, by emphasizing the different layers by slowing the song down. I downloaded this one for my workout list. Really good. 10
Heartbeat: right off the bat the build up starts perfectly. When the doubled up bass hits, the gain in tempo matches the voice really well. The song changes feel three times very subtly in the build up all the way to the end. If there was a musical equivalent of epic blue balls - that drop was it. I will be honest, I’m not a fan of slow drops like this over any genre, but this was a real let down. The build up was epic: 6
Our fragment: this has much the same feel as the last song, a great build up (but not as epic as the last), and I was nodding my head waiting to be disappointed - by was pleasantly surprised. The drop here while lower tempo fit the build up; there wasn’t a big pro drop, the song blended it, but it the lack of a huge drop mostly fit well. The layers and intricate patterns in the chorus are my jam, and these give me something to focus on. This wasn’t as good as the last skrux, but I can see it as good as saints by pro: 8
You’re on: I’m normally a fan of madeon - but I wasn’t a big fan of this. It’s more of a poppy mainstream one that doesn’t focus on the elements of EDM in the same ways
Pros didn’t. It was enjoyable, but felt like it should be the music at the end of a mario kart round. It was just ok: 5.
