Heaven by DJ Sammy: 5/10 I kinda liked how the vocals started immediately: I've obviously heard other songs where this is the case too, but here it was done with a quick crescendo as opposed to just being sudden. I didn't find myself jamming to it like I have with similar songs though.
Madness by Muse: 8.5/10 5 years after marching band and I finally learned what this song from our beginning of practice exercises is called lol. It's soothing and I enjoy listening to it. I like how it gets more powerful about 3 minutes in and was moving to the beat but maybe that's just my marching band side lol.
Out Loud by Gabbie Hanna: 4/10 The harmony was good in this song, and the singer had a good voice, but honestly this song just didn't click with me.
El Dorado by Two Steps from Hell: 10/10 This was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and definitely sounds like something you'd hear in a movie.
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive by Men at Work: 6.5/10 This wasn't bad, I wouldn't listen to it again given the choice though.
Heaven - DJ Sammy: 6/10 Not my sort of music, and nothing I'd go out of my way to listen to, but I thought it was alright.
Madness - Muse: 6/10 I normally like Muse well enough, but this isn't a favorite of mine. I like it more towards the end when it picks up, but otherwise I could take it or leave it.
Out Loud - Gabbie Hanna: 6/10 There was obvious passion and emotion in this song, which I always appreciate, but it just didn't click with me.
El Dorado - Two Steps From Hell: 9/10 I've never heard anything by Two Steps From Hell that I didn't at least like, and this is no exception. This is so cinematic and grand, and I'm a sucker for that sort of thing.
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive: 10/10 I love this song for a lot of weird reasons that I don't entirely understand myself. At the core of it, I just think it's a whole lot of fun, and it never fails to put me in a good mood when I listen to it.
Heaven - DJ Sammy: 3/10 The beat got annoying after a bit, so did the vocals! This is the kind of song that makes me think that sometimes, putting vocals over edm beats is a Mistake.
Madness - Muse: 7/10 I think this song is pretty cool. I enjoy the instrumental a lot. It starts out with just a beat, then you add more and more instruments as it goes on, building up to the final chorus and the screams of love at the end. The guitar part in the middle is nice too! I thought I liked this song more before listening really closely, but I still enjoy it.
Out Loud - Gabbie Hanna: 4/10 I enjoyed this more than I thought I would have. That being said, she is trying way WAY too hard. Youtubers need to stop making music whether it's bad raps from the Paul brothers or stuff like this.
El Dorado - Two Steps from Hell: 7.5/10 I enjoyed this thoroughly. Not at a single point was I wishing the song would end. Instrumental songs like this are usually either super cool or boring, and I think this one fits into the super cool group.
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive - Men at Work: 6/10 I enjoyed this a lot at the start but it wore out it's welcome and I was tired of it by the end. I feel like it eventually devolved into THIS IS THE STORY OF DR HECKYLL AND MR JIVE over and over again. I get that's the point of a chorus, but should a chorus really be the same two lines repeated FOUR TIMES? I dunno, that got super grating for me eventually. The amount I enjoyed it before I got annoyed with it still warrants this a pretty good score.
Heaven - DJ Sammy: 3/10 Oh, it's this song. This takes me back. I don't really care for this genre now. It's a weird techno mixture, which isn't bad just... I don't enjoy this anymore. This hasn't aged well, though it gives me nostalgia. That's about the only good thing.
Madness - Muse: 2/10 Not a tune I expected from Muse. Slow like most of their songs, with not much payoff. It's really gross if they want to take an electronic style now since that's not playing to their strengths, I think.
Out Loud - Gabbie Hanna: 6/10 A bit try-hardy, but alright to listen to. Nothing too special. I like her voice.
El Dorado - Two Steps from Hell: 5/10 They have some cool songs but I don't pay enough attention to really find things I enjoy about specific tracks. Neutral score since it didn't suck.
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive - Men at Work: 3/10 Not my music at all. Felt too long and boring, just a bit of white noise.

Heaven-DJ Sammy (3.5/10). No thanks. I'm already not an EDM fan, and turning a good love song into this makes absolutely no sense to me. It's not terrible, but I just don't get it at all.
Madness-Muse (5/10). Another song I feel pretty much nothing for. It's decent, but there are countless songs that sound similar to it.
Out loud-Gabbie Hannie (5/10). I hate the backing on this. It's really jarring that it goes in and out constantly. But ignoring that, the song is, again, just ok. Gabbie's voice is just a pop voice. Nothing about her voice sticks out. I feel this could be sung by her, Katie Perry, Kelly Clarkson, or a myriad of other pop stars. I do like the lyrics, though. Probably some of the best in a song like this.
El Dorado-Two Stops From Hell (10/10) I'm a big fan of orchestral pieces, and it's really nice seeing a new spin on it. This sounds like it could easily be in a big budget Hollywood movie or video game (parts of it reminded me a bit of the Overwatch theme). And after looking it up, I can see why. I'd honestly consider getting Skyworld simply because of this song. It's superb. Easily one of the best I've heard this entire Face Off.
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive. (8/10) I really like Men at Work and Collin Hay, and this is is really nice. It's more silly like Down Under, and that's a good thing. I'm also really glad Hay gets to show his chops a bit. He has a great voice.
Heaven - DJ Sammy :4/10 an ok song I wished ended a bit earlier
Madness - Muse : 8/10 I really like how this starts and how it ends just a bit slow
Out Loud - Cabbie Hanna:5/10 good beat some of the vocals just feel a bit too forced
El Dorado - Two Steps From Hell: 7/10 has a nice video game feel to it
Dr.Heckyll and Mr.Jive - Men at Work: 6/10 nice melody
Black Vulture - Halestorm: 7/10 It's k. Not much else to say lol.
Plume - Kubbi 7.5/10 This was nice sounding. Very pretty and energetic. It does feel very draggy though. But it doesn't make the song unbearable or anything. Just longer than I feel like it needs to be.
You Can Count On Me - Trophy Eyes: 7/1 See Black Vulture.
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) - Isaac Albenez: 6/10 He is talented. However, I'm bored.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons: 6/10 I uh...This song didn't really click with me much. There are plenty of better Imagine Dragons tunes imo. :s
Black Vulture by Halestorm 4/10 | This song w00shed past me without clicking, resonating, really leaving any mark on me. I don't have anything good to say, I usually enjoy rock(? im bad at genres lole) but this felt a bit bland somehow, but it wasn't bad!!
Plume by Kubbi 8.5/10 | am a sucker for stuff like this... it feels very pleasantly quirky and cute. It is best suited for playing in the background but that's fine, doesn't mean it doesn't hold its own, even if I would only have it running in the background or something it's still very beautiful and nicely put together.
You Can Count On Me by Trophy Eyes 5.5/10 | i don't like the shouties at all, well i guess a better way to put it is I'm not a fan of the vocals themselves, but some parts of it were still like hmmm yis
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) by Isaac Albenez 7/10 | yas qu33n play them strings mmmmmmm 👌👌👌👌👌
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons 7.5/10 | Actually enjoyed this a lot. Was beautiful and so grand. Imagine Dragons can impress me sumtimes
Black Vulture - Halestorm: 4/10 Felt really like a generic hard rock track. Very nice voice, just nothing too special going on here.
Plume - Kubbi: 9/10 A really nice progression and really good build up. It didn't need to be anything more than it was, quite a beautiful track.
You Can Count On Me - Trophy Eyes: 8/10 👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀 good **** go౦ԁ ****👌 thats ✔ some good👌👌**** right👌👌there👌👌👌 right✔there ✔✔if i do ƽaү so my self 💯 i say so 💯 thats what im talking about right there right there (chorus: ʳᶦᵍʰᵗ ᵗʰᵉʳᵉ) mMMMMᎷМ💯 👌👌 👌НO0ОଠOOOOOОଠଠOoooᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒ👌 👌👌 👌 💯 👌 👀 👀 👀 👌👌Good ****
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) - Isaac Albeniz: 7/10 This is always a great track to listen to. It's performed really well. This is calming music that sucks you in.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons: 3/10 This is nothing special to me. The typical slow track on the album for all rock bands. The lyrics don't really mean anything to me.

Black Vulture - Halestorm: 7/10 I thought I was gonna hate this when it started out, but it grew on me. I think the chorus is super enjoyable to listen to, and aside from the beginning which felt ultra generic I felt it was pretty cool after that and I enjoyed my listen. Probably generic like everyone else said, but I appreciate this kind of music too much to rate it lower
Plume - Kubbi: 4/10 This made me feel nothing. Yawn af. I get it's background music, but I still found it too boring.
You Can Count On Me - Trophy Eyes: 6/10 Hey this was alright. I thought the instrumentals were good (that like 10 sec long guitar solo at the end mmm) but overall found it pretty repetitive. But that's ok, it didn't get annoying because it was a short track.
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) - Isaac Albenez: 7/10 I like hearing guitar stuff like this! It's super pretty to listen to, but it did not have to be 6 minutes long. I got bored after about 3 minutes or so, but I feel like that's probably my fault as a listener and not the song's fault if that makes sense. Still too long though. Around the end though it got me interested again when it sped up.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons: 3.5/10 Imagine Dragons are awesome. The vast majority of their songs I love, I even saw them live last year and loved every second of it! Great band. This song is bad. The instrumental gets super grating for me over the course of the song. During the second chorus or so, there is just so much sounds going on that is unpleasant to listen to, and the same goes for the third chorus. I just overall do not like this one.
Also, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons is getting divorced from the lady who this song is about. So, nice.
Black Vulture by Haelstorm: 4/10 I didn't like the singer's voice. Besides that, nothing clicked with me and I was neutral towards it.
Plume by Kubbi: 10/10 This song is amazing and describes happiness and freedom so perfectly. Really like the build up and I jammed to this a LOT.
You Can Count On Me by Trophy Eyes: 7/10 I liked the instrumentals. The vocals were alright and overall this wasn't bad!
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) by Isaac Albenez: 5.5/10 This seemed very technically challenging but the guitarist did a really nice job. It got too long for me though; I didn't like it anywhere near enough to have wanted to listen to it for 6 minutes.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons 6/10 This was ok, I also prefer a lot of other Imagine Dragons songs to this one though. As Nick said I felt that too much was happening in the second and third choruses.
Black Vultures by Halestorm: 6/10 - Halestorm is fairly hit or miss for me, and I didn't like this one as much as some of their other work. Not really my jam.
Plume by Kubbi: 3/10 - The sound wasn't the worst, but the emotion felt very flat to me. It didn't go anywhere. After about 30 seconds I was ready to move on.
You Can Count On Me by Trophy Eyes: 8/10 - Mmm yeah, this woke me up in a good way. Solid drums and guitar, and I enjoyed the singer.
Asturias (transcribed for guitar) by Isaac Albeniz: 7/10 - I can't rate it any lower because it really is an exceptional piece of music and art, but I didn't want to spend six minutes on this. A personal fault.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons: 4/10 - Right from the start something about this song felt off to me. Might've been the way all the different components were layered together. I couldn't enjoy it much.
Black Vulture by Halestorm: 7/10 - Sometimes I don't realize how much of a fan of this hard rock I can be. Not super epic but I do like the instrumentals!
Plume by Kubbi: 5/10 - I feel like I should like this more than I do. And yet, this didn't do much for me. Not like bad or anything, just not something I would revisit.
You Can Count On Me by Trophy Eyes: 3/10 - From the second this started, I knew I wouldn't like this. Dx The yelling is too annoying for my tastes.
[url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEfFbuT3I6A]Asturias by Isaac Albenez: 5/10 - The whole "white guy with acoustic guitar" concept is one that gets ragged on by quite a few people, and while I'm not explicitly in that group, this one drags on too long and doesn't ever get much exciting.
Next To Me by Imagine Dragons: 7/10 - While this isn't the super bombast that this band is known for, the lyrical content is meaningful and heartfelt, at the least.
