SECRET is the king of LOWBPM2EZ. Despite attempting to redeem itself halfway through, this song is so slow and the steps so spaced out that it's like someone erected a brick wall between "Secret" and "fun". The only way to improve this file would have been to step another song.

GREENHORN on the other hand, while not one of my favorite files in the contest, at least has a beat and makes good use of it. It goes a little overboard with the 16ths, but at these low speeds, that's acceptable. Steps flow well, and it's got a little character.

Vote: GREENHORN

Secret

Just because it's slow and a 4 doesn't mean it's not fun. It's a really well made file, and I simply liked it better.

Greenhorn. Because heavy in Secret isn't even harder than an avarage light.

Secret did have nothing wrong with it, but I just can't
have fun playing a 4 footer heavy chart.

My vote goes to Greenhorn

I'll go with Secret. Both were solid files, I enjoyed Secret a little better and I think it stood out a little more. It was quite easy, but I think the steps were very fitting to the song.
Goto Maki is sooooo hawt!

Voting Secret. Greenhorn was good (awesome ending in particular) but Secret took more of a risk and stood out for it - taking a difficult song to step (as opposed to one that was in a dancing game already) and making a well-crafted if controversial chart for it. Greenhorn's was pretty straightforward, which is good but it's not standout great like Secret. It also didn't have anywhere near as many spaces.

Greenhorn. While I'm usually not one to say Heavy can't be easy, I feel that Secret's three charts are occupying too similar a niche, which leads to a file that isn't as well-rounded as I'd like.

Greenhorn gets my vote here, it's a far superior file. The song is decent and the steps are well placed. Secret on the other hand has a very generic chart that just goes from one step every few beats to one step every beat to one step every half-beat, it's very mechanical and not that good although the readme almost makes this chart worth it.

i'm going with secret for being a riskier song choice that ended up being a solid stepchart.
