Thanks for checking out my Slicethepie review. Today I’m gonna check out the Slicethepie platform and see if it’s for real.
This is a website where you can rate and review songs and get paid for it.
Sounds pretty sweet, right?
So, in this review I’m gonna give it a go for an hour and see how much cash I can rack up.
But before we get into that, let’s get to know Slicethepie a bit better.
What Is Slicethepie?
Slicethepie is a site that is known mostly for paying you (the reviewer) for listening to and then reviewing songs.
The site claims that it has to date accepted over 10 million reviews, and paid out more than $1 million to its reviewers.
The website is extremely easy to navigate and you can get right in to writing song reviews once you have provided some basic info about yourself.
You can occasionally also write reviews of fashion items. There is sometimes a ‘lucky dip’ where you could be reviewing a number of different products.
My test run today however will be focused on writing song reviews only.
You are also given an opportunity to participate occasionally in surveys, although you can opt out of this option if you choose. Writing music reviews however is the most predominant activity on this site.
Slicethepie provides a platform for budding musicians to receive feedback about their audio tracks. Artists upload their music at Soundout.com so their songs can be reviewed at Slicethepie.
From this feedback, artists are able to find opportunities for radio placement, airplay and other related opportunities, depending on the quality of their work.
Who can join Slicethepie?
Slicethepie is primarily for residents of English speaking countries such as the U.S, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. and also Germany. You have to be 13 years to become a reviewer on this platform.
How Do You Register At Slicethepie?
The registration process is straightforward. It requires your name, email address, gender, and date of birth.
You also need to create a password to secure your account. You will get access to all review categories once you complete the registration process.
You are also asked to give some of your musical preferences. So whether you’re into R&B /Soul, Indie, Rock or Country, just tick the relevant boxes to ensure you get to review more of the songs that you love.
How Does Slicethepie Work?
Reviewing music at Slicethepie is straightforward. It involves listening to music tracks, writing a short review and ticking a few boxes about what you thought about the track.
You must listen to the track for at least 90 seconds before writing your review. The appraisal process focuses on aspects such as vocals, lyrics, instrumentals, production, and rhythm.
Don’t worry about being over technical or trying to sound like a professional. The artists want honest feedback from real and enthusiastic listeners of music.
Slicethepie will reveal the name of the track and artist at the end of the review on some of the reviews you do. Others will be anonymous. Apparently each track has to have over 30 separate appraisals to establish the final artist rating.
How Much Can You Earn With Slicethepie?
The amount of earnings per review will be influenced by the star rating you get as a reviewer.
I’m no professional song reviewer by any means. When I’m active on the site I write what I honestly what I think about the song and include an opinion about the introduction, the melody, the lyrics and whether the tune was catchy.
I try to make the reviews as thorough as possible, and for this Slicethepie has rated my reviewing ability at 2 stars.
So, if you achieve the same star rating then you are likely to earn similar to what I managed to achieve below. A higher rating should allow you to earn a bit more.
How Much Did I Earn In 1 Hour?
Writing song reviews are fun, but doing them for a full hour without a break can be hard going. So to do this test I had a couple of breaks. To ensure the test was as accurate as possible I used a stop watch to measure the actual time I spent writing the reviews.
During the 1 hour period I reviewed the following;
2 songs that paid 12 cents each
2 songs that paid 7 cents each
5 songs that paid 6 cents each
3 songs that paid 2 cents each
The total earned for 1 hour of writing song reviews was $0.74.
So, not a great return if you are looking for a way to earn a meaningful amount of money online.
Slicethepie also has a referral program that pays you 20% of all your referrals earnings for the first 60 days, and then 10% after the 60 days are up.
Slicethepie Payment Proofs
I have been with Slicethepie for some time and have managed to cash out a few times. I haven’t had any problems at all with receiving the money I have earned.
The minimum you need is $10 to cash out.
The site says it takes about 5 working days before they pay you. However it usually only takes one day for for the money to land in my PayPal account (see proofs below).
Is Slicethepie A Good Way To Make Money Online?
As a side gig Slicethepie isn’t a great way to earn money online.
However, it is completely free to join, and it also fun to write a few reviews when you have some spare time. A downside is that you need to reside in either The U.S, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Germany to benefit from Slicethepie.
Working on Slicethepie has a clear advantage over taking online surveys because you can predict how much you are likely to earn. However, you can potentially earn more on survey sites.
Nonetheless you can at least roughly calculate how much you get paid for each review, and because you don’t get disqualified like you do with surveys, you will get paid for every minute you spend reviewing songs or products.
Just ensure you’re not writing generic reviews, and comply with the terms and conditions of the site (e.g no VPN) and you can generate a few extra dollars a month.

Is Slicethepie Worth It?
Slicethepie is certainly a genuine platform for reviewing tracks. If you love music then you will probably find the site to be rewarding aside from the monetary incentives.
The rewards however are currently too low to recommend the site as a good way to earn money online. However, if you are particularly good at writing professional song reviews your earning potential could be higher than mine.
The minimum withdrawal requirement of $10 however is achievable within a relatively short period of time ( even for novices like me) if you continue to write reviews.
Joining Slicethepie could be fun and interesting way for you to earn a little extra cash on the side.
Star Rating 2/5- This is a fun platform for music fans, and if you are very good at reviewing music tracks then you could earn more.
