Cyril: While I wasn't expecting much at first, I quickly realized that the production level was great. Interesting to listen to...if only just because of the lyrics. :P
OCRE: He included the Wind Fish, need I say more? :D

Second would be The Shaggy Freak. Love the drum build and the transtition @ 25 seconds. Its pretty badass, and so is the song, in a mischevious sort of way. Great guitar line for the theme.
JakeSnake17 wins third, I felt pretty badass listening to his song, for reasons that I cannot describe beyond mentioning the drums are pretty neat.
Altogether, I really liked a lot of these songs, however None of them really felt totally full on badass to me. A lot of the songs could have done well for different themes IMO.

Haven't been compo-ing for a while. This round reminded me nicely of the good ol' times. ;)
I'm a bit lost for word before the display of talent presented here, so I'll be brief...
1st place - melody:
Simply beautiful, and I guess badass too, in its own way.
Loved the choice of instruments, the upright tone of the song, and the happy retro-synth vibe from the PSX era.
I'll be listening to that one for a long long time...
2nd place - Flik:
Yeah, I just can't resist to that flute, you know that.
It's like a secret weapon that's not really secret anymore ...but still deadly. And thus pretty badass! XD
I'll pray for the safe rest of your recorder and mouse man.
3rd place - starla:
"Monstruous: Exceptionally large; enormous. Deviating greatly from the norm in appearance or structure."
That should sums it up. I was surprised by that song, it's fairly uncommon, and very badass.
If it wasn't for the shortness and abrupt ending, I would have put in in second place.
Yet, if that's the kind of thing awaiting us in the album, I can't wait.
Comments on some of the other tracks:
-JakeSnke17: awesome groove going on as usual. That's a trademark right here. ;)
-Oinkness: this was a bit more than just music. You were telling a story here. Nicely done.
-theshaggyfreak: very interesting funk-rock song, with fun moment and an unforgetable bassline.
-Obtuse: kudos for managing to emulate the Just64Helpin audio-engine so successfully.
-ella guru: most effective ear-raping ever. Now I won't be able to make music for a decade thanks to you! ;p
That's a wrap. See you guys next time! ^_^

Brens piece had a doom music sound to it that I thought was nifty.
Really liked the panning diddly in "Waking a Fish Fulla Hot Air". It tickles my tastebuds (the ones you'll find on my eardrums).
Overall a solid compo, on another day I'd probably have picked a different 3 tops.
