Far Wanderings      "B33P B00P" Slayer
As a song with only a Guitar part, you'd expect the Guitar part to be fun, otherwise this song would be a waste of a dollar unless you're a collector. This song IS fun, so yeah.

This song's Guitar part is basically a bunch of chords with HO/PO sections within and a handful of really fun solos. It is incredibly fun and amazing.

Being challenging (sort of) and having a bunch of fun solos, this is a fun buy.

Don't Drink the Bottle      "(Sleep noises)" Slayer
This song's Guitar part is incredibly boring. It is a bunch of chords with a 3-note chord thrown in every whateverth measure. It gets really boring and there is not a lot of variety.

Not a Guitar buy.

Unfurling a Darkened Gospel      "Corporate Money out of my pockets to buy this awesome guitar" Slayer
Embedded was fun, but it wasn't perfect. It had a couple parts where the Guitar part slows down. However, this song does not stop. It is relentless.

It starts with a bunch of fast HO/PO's with some strums thrown in to make it more challenging. This is what gives it a leg up from Embedded. It is fast, but it has more "note space" if you know what I mean.

This is what happens throughout the entire song, so it is a great buy for Guitar players. Probably one of the highlights of this song is the solo. It also has a bunch of HO/PO's, a "snake" section, and despite being short, is a blast to play.

BUY THIS SONG!!! And for $1, who wouldn't want it?

Madness      "Da FlUtE" Slayer
Time for da flute review!!

This song's Guitar is very fun. The main riff is a HO/PO chain with a strum in between, similar to Unfurling a Darkened Gospel.

The verse riff is a bunch of HO/PO's. Fun, but not noteworthy.

The chorus is a bunch of 3-note sustains.

The next few sections is a repeat of the previous sections, but then there's the flute solo. It is a completely different HO/PO section of flutey goodness. The timing window is very little, so you need to be very precise in order to FC this.

After that there's the keyboard solo, where you basically mimic the Bass chart until the Guitar solo that comes right after. It's basically what you expect from a solo.

After that, it basically repeats the main riff and then it ends.

Buy it for the flute

Wasted      "bOrInG!!!!! B33p b00p" Slayer
This song's Guitar chart only occurs during the chorus and bridge. The chorus is just a bunch of strums. It IS kinda fast, but it's very boring. And the bridge is just a bunch of notes across the fret, but it is very slow.

Don't buy this song for Guitar. The Bass has more going on, the Drums is ok (maybe buy the 2x bass pedal version for that), Keys is definitely the highlight of the song, and the Vocals is surprisingly fun.

It would be easy to dismiss this song as being too easy and a little too repetitive, but then that would take away everything that makes this song fun!

Sure, the first half is a little on the repetitive side, but the strum patterns and chord progressions are JUST difficult enough to keep you on your toes and there is JUST enough variety to keep you from getting bored.

However, from just after the halfway point, there's a solo, a bridge, and a second solo that are all 'hair metal dreams'. Not too difficult, but still make you feel like a shredder.

honestly just a lot of fun! Not too challenging, but very fun. Oh, and it's definitely going to be a long time party favorite due to its anthemic nature and popularity, but I'll get into that more with the vocal review if I write on.

5/5 great for guitarists of all skill levels.

Curse You All Men! (Live)      "Fun, but annoying to play" Slayer
Wut?!?! A live black metal song? YAY!!! (Plays Guitar) Whoa....this....is.....weird

This song has a bunch of variety, but the way this song is executed is way off. For example, the forced strums in the middle of the HO/PO part. Forced strums CAN be done well, but this song does not do it well. It is placed in the most inopportune of places. Not to mention, the trills are too fast to play.

However, it is very fun; it has a lot of variety, fast strumming, and many more. Buy it.

Hold the Line      "Fun but boring at times" RBAddict666
Here it is, another Toto song that everyone was waiting for after Africa was released.

The song begins with the piano intro charted to double note chords that shift up and down the fret board before transitioning into the chorus which consists of single chord strums and chord sustains.

The verse consists of single note strums with sustains and a few hammer ons here and there.

The guitar solo contains sequences of very fast taps along with some single note strums and sustains and one trill lane.
The solo is perhaps the trickiest part which will make getting that Gold Star score pretty tough!

After the verse comes the final chorus which ends with multiple YO chord strums.

All in all it's a pretty fun song but I can't give it a perfect score as the chorus sections can be a little boring.

Recommended? Yes

I have to admit I am torn on this song's guitar Chart, as I want to give it a 5/5, but I just cannot do so because there are parts that are unpleasant to play and last a very long time.

Most notably, its opening riff (not the organ intro) is a series of ascending triplets mixed in with some fast sweeps that goes on entirely too long and gets annoying really quickly. That part of the song is repetitive, challenging, and frankly kind of boring and frustrating. Plus, it goes on for like 2 minutes, which is literally a quarter of the song's total length. Definitely an "I give up, moving on" segment if I've ever seen one.

But then, once that part is over, the chart mellows out a bit and gets very, very good. The basic riff is a tonne of fun, both challenging but enjoyable. There are four solos strewn without, a bunch of different guitar changeups, and a litany of different styles to enjoy.

The song is an absolute blast, taking you on a roller coaster from every end of the spectrum, going from hardcore top-tier shredding to gentle, melodic melancholia mixed in with some organ sustains.

It's a wonderful song for three quarters of its length and by the end I was almost ready to completely ignore the terribly unpleasant opening, but upon second playthrough I just couldn't ignore it.

4/5, when it's good it's great (most of the song), but when it's bad, it's unbearable (the opening)

Dozing Green      "低俗すぎます。" Slayer
The world of boring Keys charts; this is one of its people. Just a bunch of sustains. Not to mention there is not enough notes to get a 4x multiplier.

Not for Keys. Not as bad as Until I Feel Nothing but it still sucks.

That's tha Homie      "Synth the OK" Slayer
Yo Dawgy Dogg! It'sha bouy Snoop Dogg! I'mma tell ya about this song's Guitar part.

During the chorus, it's a bunch of easy to hit notes with a few HO/PO's.

During the verses, the Guitar has a bunch of variety. 3-note sustains, a couple fast strumming part, and a bunch of fun to play HO/PO's!

Good Guitar part. Buy it for Snoopy, Dawg!

Years in the Darkness (2x Bass Pedal)      "Worse than Fat Kid" Slayer
This has got to be the laziest Vocals song in existence. There is clearly singing in the song, yet all of it is charted to talkies. I like talky songs, but how do you screw up Vocals? Good God! You'd have to be high to screw up a Vocals track.

Horrible

Insanity of the Atoms      "Good chart, nasty drum solo" zyyzyyzyy
Very fun song. I love the drum beat that goes on throughout the song, it's unique and fun to play. It's very challenging because some places require double tapping and it's rather complex, but it's something most good drummers should enjoy. The replay value of this song is extremely high.

However, this song has a drum solo that is very difficult because of questionable charting- there are quite a few places that should've been charted as lanes but instead aren't and move more than 16 NPS. Unlike the drum solos in Synesthesia, Beast and the Harlot, and If 6 was 9, it's actually not terribly difficult to pass, but hitting everything is almost impossible, especially if you don't have a four-figure kit that picks up every single note and resists the roll limit. It's just not that fun to play at all.

I'd give the song an A+ for the two choruses, main riff, bridge, and outro, and a D for the drum solo. I guess an A+ for five sections and a D for one section averages out to an A-, so that's what I'm giving this song.

Celebration      "Very Repetitive" SirPuttsAlot
While I enjoy listening to the song itself, it's very easy and repetitive. I was having a hard time getting a FC on this song and took 3 tries b/c I kept losing interest in it 1/2 way through.

I can't say much about the other instruments, but this is lacking when it comes to drums.

Wake Me Up      "Drums = Very Boring" SirPuttsAlot
This is not a very fun song to play and very repetitive. Most of the time it doesn't feel like an Expert Charted Song, but more like the Medium Drums from Green Grass and High Tides.

It's fun to listen too, but no so much to play.

Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be (Live)      "Snorefest" zyyzyyzyy
There isn't much to this song. They're a a few tricky fills but that's about it. Basic drum beat for a few minutes that doesn't change much.

The Jack (Live)      "Pretty underrated" zyyzyyzyy
I don't understand the low rating at all. This song is actually decent on drums. The drum beat is unlike any other you've seen from AC/DC, and there's more variations than normal for this band. It's also six minutes long and offers some fun stuff. You definetly won't go wrong with this if you had to pick this for a setlist. With that being said, it's easy and probably not too appealing to an elite drummer, but I don't see what the big problem with this is...

Highway to Hell (Live)      "Better than you'd expect, but not strong" zyyzyyzyy
Not hard at all, although there are some flashy fills in the song, as well as some variation. However, the beat is too basic and doesn't show any sort of challenge or anything special, which prevents me from giving this a four-star. The playability value just isn't entirely there. There just isn't much to this song, so I'm not going to go into full detail about this. It's just an average tier 0 song.

Moneytalks (Live)      "Very easy" zyyzyyzyy
It's a super easy drum beat with easy fills for four minutes. There isn't even a BRE at the end, that's all it is. Easy money FC for good drum players. And that's about it, not really much to see here.

Working Man      "Excellent, but Vault Edition is better" zyyzyyzyy
This song is very fun to play on drums. It has every bit of the same good stuff as the Vault Edition does. However, this song doesn't sound anywhere near as good as the Vault Edition and the drum chart feels a bit looser and is less accurate than WMVE. Regardless, it's still very fun to play, but if you had to pick one, pick the Vault Edition instead. Either way, both songs are excellent. The hard drum roll at the end is in this version too, except slightly slower and has some spaces in between.

Working Man (Vault Edition)      "Among the best drum charts ever" zyyzyyzyy
Working Man (Vault Edition) is among the most prestigious DLC that Harmonix has ever released. Many Rush songs are considered the best on drums, and this song is the best of those Rush songs. The drum chart is almost completely flawless, the beat is both fun to play and not too challenging. All of the fills are fun to play and doable for most drummers as well. Many new expert drummers will like this song because it's Rush and it's not hard to learn at all. Some of the better expert drum players will like this song just because it's fun and not that hard to GS. And the elite drum players will like it too because they're a a drum roll near the end of the song that only the best of the best drum players will be able to hit perfectly. There's even a BRE at the end of the song!

This song is just amazing on drums. This isn't just a great drum chart for a song, this is THE gold standard for a great drum chart for a song. There is very, very, very few songs on Rock Band that compares to this.

Indians      "A refined Caught in A Mosh drum chart" zyyzyyzyy
It's very similar to Caught in a Mosh, except that it's slightly slower. This is actually huge, because it's easier to keep up with everything and not get as tired. But the drum beats are mostly the same. The only differences in the beats is that the drum beat in the second half of the Caught in the Mosh drum solo with triple kicks is all over Indians, the guitar solo is unique in drums, and there is no drum solo in Indians. This song is more fun than Caught in a Mosh since it's more doable and gets more creative in the guitar solo.

Also, this is probably the easiest Anthrax drum song (save for I'm The Man). I don't exactly recommend this to a new expert drummer, but a decent drummer should be able to pass this without much trouble. It's tricky though.

Painkiller      "A mixed bag" zyyzyyzyy
It's rare for a song on Rock Band to have a drum solo, but it's even rarer for a Rock Band song to have more than one drum solo. That's the case for this song, as there is two drum solos, one at the beginning and one at the end of song. Both are pretty fun to play, especially the latter.

However, everything between the two drum solos is meh. It's pretty repetitive and switches between two beats every minute or so with very little variation of any significance. It can actually get a little bit boring if you're good enough to hit the beat with no problem. Most of the song either a mildly fast pattern with three kicks between each snare, the second of which has a yellow note, and the snare being paired with a yellow note as well, or a beat that looks like Sleepwalker slowed way down. This stuff goes on for six minutes and doesn't really get all that interesting to a good player, while easily failing out a bad player.

Overall, it's an okay song to play, but it isn't something I would really play over and over again for the sake of doing so. The best way to describe this song would be "Two epic solos separated by an endless sea of triple-kick beats and other stuff that shows up over and over again"
