    Congratulations on ranking top 50 without promotion! That is quite an achievement. You must have a decent following.

    There was only 1 song I thought was decent.

    In most of the tracks I'm hearing:

    Nasal vocals.
    No bass in vocals.
    They sound color'd by a bad mic, no booth or both.
    You're not articulating words clearly, I can barely understand.
    Seems like you're driving the vocals up too high cause of this (still can't hear).
    The drum samples, kick, snares, percs, etc... sound cheap. Not dynamic enough.
    Probably due to bad engineering and mixing.

    Also, not sure what you're mastering with but waves plugins are great if you know how to use them.

    The synths and melodies sound good. It's the recording, engineering and mixing that sounds off.

    I would take those vocals and run them through EQ, Overdrive, Exciter, EQ, Vintage PSP, Waves Stereo, Compressor.
    Then tweak the hell out of them till they pop without stealing headroom. If that doesn't work I'd get a new mic. The vocals just don't sit right.

    ps. If this is FL Studio I'd love to analyze a dry vocal.

    Why not Pro Tools? For that matter why not Propellerhead? If cost is an issue Rosegarden, Ardour, or Audacity (Windows or Linux)?

    Just curious. I know nothing of FL, but a fair amount about the others.

    Good flow, the only problem was the quality or the recording itself, If it was made in pro studio, I think it would sound event better. Congratz none the less.
