How Do You Write Your Reviews on Slice The Pie?

It's hard to write a very good review on a song in Slice The Pie. I usually talk about the structure of the song, the tempo, how the vocals sound, if it's different or not different from what I've heard before, and what I like and didn't like about the song. It's even more harder to write a good review with songs that just aren't that good at all. To those who are on Slice The Pie, how do you write your reviews?

Firstly, if you want to increase your ranking from gold to diamond or whateva comes after that u have to rate high, that is the most important! RATE HIGH! i mean like 7 or 8 or 9 and chances are your ranking wont go down. Of course, for general rap nonsense that they play you rating in a 4 wont lower your rank, but for most songs, even average, give a 7 no harm right? Then for the review itself, i talk about the basic feel of the song and then talk about the background music, instrumentals, vocals, chorus, song arrangement, flaws and things that are good, putting it all together, i usually take longer then the 90 secs that they give. And to get a good amount of money from your review you have to rate wisely as well, when my rating happens to coincide with the review i give i can earn like 10-11c for none bonus tracks which is i have to say, i lot of money for 2 mins of work :) Anyway enjoy slicethepie, its the best site around, im quite a veteran there and was once 5th in the whole world so i would gladly accept questions :)

Thanks for the tips! I'll be using your tips to write a better review than the ones I have been writing. Again, I think it's ridiculous that we have to give a 7, 8, or 9 on the rating even if the song is bad, but I guess I have to do that if I want more earnings.

haha your rating has to be kinda with tandem with the music that u hear just that if you feel that the song deserves a 6 then u can maybe give in a little and rate it a 7 so that u will first appear nicer and second be able to increase rank :) basically i think that if you be nice the site will be nice to you too :P oh and another tip is that even if you give consistent reviews, the amt u earn can fluctuate because the amount of money they pay is affected by your rating too so be sure to rate as accurately as possible! :) Best response? :P

I make sure I always comment on lyrics, vocals and style of the music, overall if the think the song would actually do well on the market or not.

Yeah I also comment on the lyrics. I don't talk about how the song would do in the market since Slice The Pie haves that rating system. I don't like the rating system at all because you have to rate it right or your rank will go down. I just think it's dumb that people who doesn't like the song they give it a 4 out of 10, but if I like the song and I rated it 7 out 10 my percentage rank goes down 2% or more because I didn't give it a 4 out of 10 or near that mark. I think it's dumb that I have to hate a song because everyone hates the song or love a song because everyone loves that song.

I have give each song constructive critic. Pinpointed the song lyric, the music, the musicians performance, the singer, how he/she sang. What feeling and experience I had during the song was played. I also added suggestions to make improvements.

I have never heard of slice the pie. Is it like pickthehits.com. You don't really have to write a review on there though you just have to rate the song and then leave a comment about it, that is about it, it is pretty easy. I will have to check out this slice the pie site, I assume it is a paying site. I have written lots of reviews for Epinions.com and Viewpoints.com.

I just started at Slice the Pie and i reviewed only two songs.I wrote what part of the song i like, what part i dont like and why. Also i commented lyrics,tempo a of the song and perfomance of the singer.
