I want to like this song, but unfortunately the keys part just isn't that fun to play.

The song only contains two riffs, and besides some very minor details they don't really change throughout the entire song.

The first one is rather peculiar in that it is a percussion part. The notes here feel rather arbitrary, and jump around seemingly at random. It basically feels like you're playing drums on the keyboard.

The second riff is a synth line that feels like it was originally played by a computer. It's got some sort of 16th note tremolo effect on it, similar to tremolo on a guitar. In other words it's fast, and it doesn't let up. I had to use both hands to play it fast enough. You might have more fun playing this part on a guitar controller so you have the advantage of alt-strumming.

In addition to those two riffs there are also a lot of sections where you're waiting around not playing anything.

Once again, I think it's a good song, but this kind of music often doesn't lend itself to this kind of game. If all you wanna do is play keyboards I don't recommend it. 2/5

Incredibly fun chart for the big hit of the pack AeonFrodo
Having never heard this song before, and knowing it was quite a big hit I had to at least be a little bit curious and buy it. And boy, if you play bass, it's definitely worth it.

Alt strumming in the chorus while having to deal with hammer ons is challenging but fun. It's actually similar to Panic Attack's main bass riff except with the alt strumming. So good luck keeping your multiplier there. Fortunately for novice players, the main riff for the verses are quite easy.

For Nine Inch Nails songs, there has been a lot of awesome songs, but the bass charts usually lack challenge and fun. Head Like a Hole finally gives bassists to enjoy playing the song as well as listening to it. Anybody who has bass as their main instrument and loves Nine Inch Nails needs to purchase this song.

You're Going to Get What You Deserve Madotsuki
This song doesnt have a whole lot of diversity, but it'll throw you off and break your streak for even the most experienced drummer in more ways then one.
The song starts out easy enough, a couple quick doubled kicks until a hi-hat comes in, and then its disco-flip time.
You'll be on the hi-hat doing this for most of the song but you'll play a few rides and crashes with consistent kicks that change up throughout.
One of the most difficult things about this song is that, as the song goes on, more and more often will you have to hit a couple extra hit-hat notes while still trying to keep that kick and snare beat. These extra hi-hats alone bring this songs difficulty up quite a bit, as they will often cause you to break your streak, and they never seem to quite stay the same, which will definitely throw you off. Right when you think you've got those pesky hi-hats figured out....well now they're different.
The chorus is similiar, but now the kicks are twice as fast and those damn extra hi-hats will gradually start sneaking into the choruses, like worms inching their way into your ears and into the grooves in your brain and eating you away while you sleep. I think thats a pretty accurate picture.
By the end you'll be completely worn out, as the song continues to get trickier and more tiring with all the little things it sneaks in just to mess you up.
This song is incredibly difficult and tiring, but it makes you want keep playing it, try to do better and see if you can finally get those damn hi-hats.
Overall, this song is absolute hell, but its a hell that will make you come back again, and again, and again, and again....

Great chart unfortunately dominated by empty space Madotsuki
Also known as GCUDBES.
Alot of this song is empty space, until the choruses where you're doing some fast strumming and some HO/PO chords with alot of fast movement along the fretboard. This doesn't last long, however, and eventually goes into the second part of the chorus where you're only playing a few muted scratches that are charted as 3 Reds, and nothing else.
Make sure you watch for these Reds, as they are pretty easy to miss if you're not paying attention, especially with all the empty space.
Overall, this chart is fun when you're playing, but keep in mind- you're not playing that often- only in the chorus and a few Reds in other parts of the song.
If you mainly play guitar, you should stay away from this. Hell, stay away from the whole pack.
