07. for Mr Alias by Ryu
Great song, possibly my favorite of the contest. Disqualified for the use of guitar and vocals. In case you can't understand Japanese, this is what he told me about the lyrics:
I cannot translate it precisely.
The rough meaning is as follows.
"The world overflows with noises.
Therefore it is difficult to find out a melody.
It is hard to sing, but it is pain to hear too."
It is not a lyric with the great meaning......
Great sounds in this one, including some of the best Mr. Alias drum sounds I've heard.16. pized by ghola1was
I like how different this is from the other entries. To me this proves that Mr. Alias can be used for serious music.11. Do you like Green Beans too? by The Phylogenetic Harmoniums
Way cool song. Another one of my favorites. And of course I like green beans.10. aliasalien by blortblort
Definitely a highlight of the competition for me. Some awesome sounds, and they keep changing so it stays interesting.
05. Smooth Analog Warmth by AuthenticDan
Enjoyable, funny. I especially like the second part with the arpeggios.04. liizaploop by SIGHUP
Crackly and annoying sounds. Very nice.15. I got the Mucus in me by tattiemannie
Nice song. Makes me want to play an old video game, maybe the Mega Man series.09. Aliasling by runagate
I'm guessing this would be unlistenable to some people, but it's right up my alley. I like the use of automation and the "explosion" sounds near the end.
02. Deadliner by Jon Boyd
Catchy. Disqualified for the question mark in the forum post ("Deadline?").03. Planet of the Slippermen by Aka
Surprisingly "normal" musical sounds here, so plus 100000 points. Almost sounds like a guitar. Also, it reminds me a little of The Residents, circa The Commercial Album (one of my favorites).06. Sister Malias by RunBeerRun
Menacing, mind-numbing music for your enemies. I'm fond of this one.17. rainbeaker by Batman Flower Flower
Very unsettling sounds under the chimes. Not bad.
08. MrA2 by djsubject
Only 9 seconds long, but can be played in a loop forever. Not very annoying as far as Mr. Alias music goes.14. RG_IOY by Ja.x
Some interesting sounds in there. Nice mellow, yet creepy, tune.01. alias bitch by datapark
Deduction of 7000000 points for putting reverb on Mr. Alias. I like it.13. Mucus was my First Love by Tattiemannie
Cool bassline. Good drum sounds too. Perhaps a little too techno for me.
12. The Triumph of Our Souls in the Valley of Our Debts by AuthenticDan
Ridiculously long and irritating, really enhances the ambiguity of the seriousness of the contest. Even if this was a joke entry, it was obviously made with Mr. Alias, so it counts, unlike AuthenticDan's first joke entry.
