What sections of mines didn't you like? I had like three different purposes for them... Aesthetics for some of the stops, background sounds to make a minefield, and dodgeball with swing gimmicks.

What do you mean by hollow? The xmod was supposed accent the scratches, give it the look/feel of a chicka-chicka.

Reviews coming up tomorrow for each chart. I'm at Battlejam for now, but damn those hard charts are getting to me.

Also, is it just me, or does Satan's theme ending too early for me?

Okay, onto in-depth reviews. Files that are highlighted green are my favorite files from this pack.

24th Century Boy
Both charts of this seem more dumpstream-ish than anything else, sorry but I couldn't keep playing through this. Maybe only playable through higher rates though.

532nm
You seem to have a good idea with variation techniques. However, there are bad concepts you're using (i.e. jumptrills) and a couple parts of the song you're not exposing its "full" potential, causing emptyness and unbalanced flow.

Abstract Art
Honestly, regardless of how repetitive the song is and how off-sync your first version was Carlos I still liked it and think it shouldn't have been revised. These charts don't seem to fit the chaotic nature of the song justice and plus the jacks play more harshly than the rest of the steps.

Acchi de Kocchi de
Maybe too much abuse on the holds. While they express well to the song yes but some could have been contracted or overall just regular notes, the solo being the inclusion. As far as the rest of the chart goes it flows very well and the layering is great.

Activation Synthesis Theory
You already know what I think of this Logan. The beginner chart is ****ed technically and an insane speed file, other charts being that to a lesser extent. Excellent effort put into this.

Advent of Purinpu! Satan-sama
It felt like you were taking on another stepping style while still keeping your abrupt nature. This flowed all too well and is more so surprising coming from you haha. Great job.

AVALON
You made the climatic part of the song feel so empty and disappointing while everything else was done well with such fluent patterns. That's all I can say about this really. Could have probably used a harder chart.

Battlefield
Always count on Morgan to continue stepping dubstep dodgeball files. Expert was inputted greatly with pattern variation (beginner being rly hard pain). Every other chart being watered down from the chart above it.

Battlejam
wiutruhjpfusuhfl i ****ing love you morgan
Insane for accuracy and every part of this is nailed down almost perfectly.

Bent Choral
I like the song but there's not much you can do with it. No matter how much variation you put into it, it'll still drag on and feel repetitive. Still stepped well regardless.

Bingo Highway
Really does seem a bit different from your style since you were experimenting. Hard chart is not all too bad but some parts feel left out compared with the solos, accented mines, etc. Expert chart being an extremely rough scoring file.

BONAMANA
From the rest of your files, I actually enjoyed this one. Gets a bit boring but the layering was well done for this song.

Breaking Through The Gate
Progressive file and is well executed on that part. Great job Carlos.

buki
The only problem I have with this file are the mines that started coming in which blew the chart's flow out of the water. Everything else is pretty good.

Cadaver Anatomy - Extraction of Viscera
The song choice is questionable lol. How it is stepped had a great old school feel. Nice to see you still stepping Charlo.

Centipede
DRINKING IS GOOD FOR YOU

Charging Swarm of Mousketeers
Honestly, I feel the structure is uneven but it's pretty damn hard to make a clean NDAD file. But, I still liked how this turned out.

Checking You Out
groovy daddy-o
I was kind of surprised at this, but it's awkwardly stepped and the flow is detracted in so many parts of the file. Decent job nonetheless.

Chronon
Not fond of this at all. The bursts are very unorthodox and the file drags on considering the atmosphere of the song. Would only be playable on higher rates.

Come On
HAD to just play this another time instead of just going to review the next file. Really fun, memorable, and the x-mod gimmicks are amazingly done.

Couple Breaking
More dumpstream? Sigh, again can be very playable on higher rates.

Divided By Three
Again, you know how I feel about this. Solos were well stepped and the file is synced with much effort.

DON'T WAKE ME FROM THE DREAM
beatmania in OUTER SPACE coming soon
Progressive buildup on the mines was nicely done. Great dodgeball file I have to say. Nice job with experimenting on this.

Done from there, might review more later.

@moches: Heavy is the main chart, Oni is stepped to serve as a difficulty booster on purpose (I'm sure some people might have wanted to seethe 32nd streams). Please try Heavy too (o:

(unless you somehow sightread A heavy in which case... you rusty boi)

there have been three versions of this song so far and I don't feel that a single one has succeeded completely. the key to stepping this file is to nail the subtle rising and falling action, having the tension build up before holding back. this does that incredibly well at times (this file has my favorite take on the beginning so far), but falters because of how technically it's stepped. green notes on piano are a bit too overpronounced compared to how back in the mix the piano actually is: a few strategically placed mines would have sufficed. lastly, the mines on the drum break work only if you use them to indicate a buildup: the transfer to actually stepping the drums was too abrupt to have much impact. (a fun trick I like to use is to 1) step everything with mines, 2) replace a few notes with mines, 3) replacing more and more mines as you go along. Never Fade Away from LCP3 has a minor example of this, so check that file out if you want to see what I mean.) a real mixed bag, this file: you have some parts in place, but others just don't convey the song very well. good attempt, but falls a bit short.
This is all I ask for with reviews. You have no idea how tired I got with the simple 1-2 line reviews bashing this and praising kneegrow's file that did nothing to explain themselves. One of the reasons I would probably trust moches with peer reviews in the future more than any other stepartist, thanks moches. Glad you could actually decide to take a fair, objective look and pick out specific points to reference.

idk why people skip a file bc "its the same song". theres no simfileDB anymore so you're not going to have over 1000 files for that one song

kneegr0w's file is like 3~4 years old, if the song hasn't been stepped in 4 years i think the file someone made for it is going to be completely different than the older one since its been around along enough to see real changes/possibly more creativity

when i see a pack with a file restepped thats from an old pack (f5, f4, ppp etc), i look forward to see the steps in a more modern style

this would be okay if people, like, actually did that (for the record i think both this healing vision and kneegr0w's version are ass)
there's been a trend for a while now of people restepping files after around a year (the island part ii in this pack, which is an incoherent mess and just plain makes shit up a few times) or not even that (here in the moment was restepped after 7 months)
what do you say to that
