KF Powerful Sad
This type of song is very rare. It is a song with the sense of shouting the sadness strongly.




R Fantastic
Most songs are rated BR and RB, and there are not very many songs rated R.




CC Assemble Of Sounds
It is like the assemble of sounds with an even stronger inorganic sense and without clear melody.
Only this puts 2 of the same symbol C as an exception.




FK
All songs are rated KF, so there is no song rated FK.




FR
All songs are rated RF, so there is no song rated FR.



That is all. 5×4 - None(FK,FR)2 + Solo5(F, R, B, C, K) + Exception(CC)1 = There are 24 types.
In order for a song to get the highest score.
 (BF type) How comfortable is BF, B, RF, or FB?
・ (C type) How much does CF, CB, or FC let you feel the music?
・ (R type) How heartwarming does BR, KR, or RB makes you feel?
・ (K type) How much does KR, BK, or KB let you feel the deepness?
These elements are needed.
In order for a song to get the lowest score.
・ It repeats phrase that is not very beautiful.
・ Its melody is trackless and weird.
・ Its tune changes too often and the concept of the song is unclear.
・ It is a very common song and lacks individuality.
・ It is not a song with good tempo, but it is just loud.
・ Its recording condition is bad (such as old Jazz).
・ It makes you gloomy (Round Midnight, Autumn Leaves, etc).
・ It is a very desperate song (It only contains K element and lacks B and R elements.
・ The development of the song is not understandable, and it makes you tired to listen to this song.
・ It is a cover song of a famous vocal song, but it is like a karaoke and has only little arrangement.
Those are the elements that give a song the lowest score.
