What is Slicethepie?
Slicethepie is a music reviewing website. We pay music fans to review music! Want to know why? You can find out more on our about page! Most of your reviews go directly to unsigned artists to give them feedback and to help us find the best ones to put forward for A&R opportunities and Radio placement.
From time to time we also run fashion trials (on Slicethepie Catwalk :)) in which you can review clothing instead of music! We'll email you when we next have a trial you're eligible for.
How do I review on Slicethepie?
Once you've logged in, you'll be taken to the Scout page. All you have to do is hit the play button and start listening to the track. You can begin reviewing right away in the text box and once at least 90 seconds of the track have passed, you can rate it out of ten using the slider. Then hit submit' and on to the next one! In order to scout, you'll need to have a good internet connection, with a minimum bitrate of 300kbps.
I've registered, now what?

Make sure to check your Spam folder and add Slicethepie to your list of trusted senders. If you have any trouble with the link in your email, please forward the email on to us at email@example.com so that we can take a look.

Do I get paid?
Yep! Slicethepie pay you to review music... we've now had over 10 million reviews submitted and paid out more than $1million to our reviewers! (This grows by the day though so check the ticker on the homepage for the actual numbers!)
How do I get paid more?
Your basic payment per review is based on your ranking. You can earn more by submitting lengthy reviews in well-written English. The better your review, the bigger the bonus payment. We are encouraging scouts to leave detailed reviews and will reward them for their time/effort!
Try to give detailed, varied and constructive comments to help artists improve their tracks.
Why am I getting paid more for some tracks I review?
From time to time you will review bonus tracks, these carry a bonus payment and are fed at random to reviewers. For these tracks you will be paid more. To earn the maximum for each review, ensure that your review is detailed, constructive and specific to the track!
What does 'Rank' mean?
This is a measure of the quality of the reviews that you have submitted. The higher your Rank, the higher your base payment per review.
What does 'Energy' mean?
Each review you submit uses 'Energy' and when your energy runs out you can't submit any more reviews. You earn extra 'Energy' every 3 minutes.
How do I get my money?
Easy! Any earnings can be withdrawn to a PayPal account (which needs to match the email address on your Slicethepie account). Click "withdraw" under your earnings.
The minimum PayPal withdrawal is $10. PayPal payments take up to 5 working days to process as we read all your reviews before paying you. Generally, payments are made on Tuesdays and Fridays, if it has been over 5 working days since you made your request either a. Slicethepie HQ has been subjected to a bird flu epidemic and wiped out all the team or b. We have spotted something suspicious on your account, in which case we will have emailed you explaining any action taken.
Why am I being paid in US dollars?
Slicethepie operates in dollars no matter where you're based. Don't worry though, we have scouts from all over the world who get paid successfully each week! Once you've withdrawn money from your Slicethepie account, it can then be converted in PayPal to your currency.
Why are some of the tracks I review anonymous?
Anonymous tracks come from our sister site www.soundout.com. SoundOut is an audience insight and analytics service used by artists, record labels and radio stations. Please review these tracks as you would any other!
Can I change the genres I scout?
It's not possible to change genre preferences on the site, but this may be possible in future. Genre preferences won't affect the tracks that you are left to review in the scout room though at this point as the tracks are fed randomly.
We do have a wide variety of music on the site, with new tracks uploaded every day, so you should find that you do hear lots of different genres!
I'm an artist and want to sign up to get feedback on my tracks. How do I do this?
I've had an account for a while, but now I have to confirm it?
