This achievement is for 5-starring every regular mix in DJ Hero 2. The only song that I would consider "hard" for average DJ Heroes would be "Firestarter", as it's possibly the only song on DJ Hero 2 that actually has sped-up and somewhat tricky scratching patterns. All you really need to remember is to aim for rewinds. Once you have a rewind, wait until you see a bright glowing arrow on both sides of the track, and use it there to bring you back a full bar or two of the song. As for Euphoria, do what's expected to be done and try using it for spots with plenty of notes, but preferrably areas with plenty of crossfades that can possibly screw up your pattern. Maybe "The Day That Never Comes" could also be considered tricky, but I wouldn't know. After you 5* "Firestarter" , you're all set for this achievement! Good luck!

Edit - A neat little tip provided by Flopsy86! Though this doesn't solve the problem with not earning your achievement, even though you're certain that you've done every song, you can write down the songs you've completed just to keep track, or you can use that cute little "Like" feature that was also mentioned! :)

EDIT EDIT - More from Flopsy86! "Something to add to this, if you're playing Empire mode and happen to 5* Galvanize or Firestarter on Expert in the first Ibiza (encore) set, they won't count towards the achievement. This happens with any song where you start a particular location and it's in the first megamix setlist (where the score combines your total for all the songs and euphoria carries over between songs).

I played the whole of Empire mode on someone else's profile on Expert only, I 5*'d Galvanize and Firestarter in the Empire mode. I got the You're Golden achievement for 5*ing Galvanize but when you go to Quickplay, these songs won't have any stars next to them, there were about 20 songs this happened to and I believe they were the ones in the sets which you play as a Megamix (the first set that automatically starts when you select a new location).

There will be other songs which could be affected by this but I mention Galvanize and Firestarter because it can happen to those 2 songs and they are the hardest ones. Speed Rail/I Will Be Here falls prey to this also, that can be pretty bad to 5* also."

This info was completely sidestepped by me, and I'm glad you brought that up! I, too, am certain that songs in Megamixes don't do anything for your star count, so make sure you do them ALL in Quickplay. It never hurts to try them again and better yourself anyway! ;)

By the way if anyone is sure they 5 stared all the songs on Expert but didn't get the achievement , that will be because you need to be signed in to Xbox Live and play the songs because they have to be saved to the game leaderbourds , you'll know they are if you go to 'rep' in the main menu and go to leaderbourds , go to the song you wanna find out about e.g. Fire starter and check if it saids you have a ranking on the leaderbourds for it. I found this out because I completed all the songs 5 star Expert but no achievement pop?? Then I look and I have 3 songs I played offline because when I went to look at it I wasnt on any leaderboard for it , so I played the songs (On Xbox Live) and then I got the achievement! :D

This is for anyone having that problem , if it makes it easier to find the songs you need to do online , just play all of them and use the like button after playing each song until you see that achievement pop or just go on the leaderbourds looking at the songs one by one until you find the ones your missing :)

This solution helps you determine which tracks you still need to complete on Expert after all songs show five stars in the Quickplay list.

This achievement is hard because of two reasons:
1) On Expert some of the tracks are quite complex and fast. No real solution for this part, practice a lot;
2) There is no way to determine which tracks you completed with five stars on Expert difficulty, if you already completed them with five stars on a lower difficulty. I found a solution to find at least some of the tracks (in my case all tracks) that still need five stars on Expert, without playing all tracks again.

Previous solutions tell you to maintain a list of what you completed on Expert. This is still a smart thing to do, since checking the status of a song is quite slow and does not cover all cases.

Before you start checking, it is best to disconnect from Live, otherwise it also shows the scores of your friends, making it harder to read your own. Before you start playing again, make sure you reconnect to Live and restart DJ Hero, otherwise it will not sign you in on the DJ Hero servers (which can be a problem according to M I K 3 ID).

- Go to Quickplay;
- Select and start the track you want to check;
- Select ready;
- select the difficulty you want to check;
- Wait for the first few notes of the track to scroll by:

On the left side of the screen you see your star meter. In your star meter there should be a yellow line and on the bottom your XBL tag should be in the accompanying yellow square. The yellow line shows your current high score for this track on whichever difficulty level you got this high score.

If the yellow line is not in the top square (the one without a grey star in it), it means you never got a score high enough for five stars on Expert. So you definitly have to play this song again smile Find all these songs are you are a lot closer to the achievement.

However if the yellow line is already in the top square, this does not mean perse you got the five stars on Expert. If you got a score on Hard or Medium, higher than the score needed to five star the track on Expert, the yellow line will also be in the top square facepalm So it doesn't really work in these cases, on the other hand: if you were able to beat the Expert score on a lower level, the song was probably not that hard and you also got it on Expert or you should be able to beat Expert quite easily.

I found the last two tracks I missed using this method, which saved me tons of time and frustration smile

The video bellow shows a track with five stars in the Quickplay list, but the star meter shows it got only four stars on Expert, so we have to replay this track to get five stars on Expert.
