Greetings Album Review Forums! I've been lurking here for a long time, observing the process of writing album reviews and I decided to try my hand at a few myself. My writing style forces my reviews to be very lengthy, so I've divided my reviews into sections to help people navigate them quickly:
Album name by band
Long, Written Out Review
Final Score (X out of 10)
tl:dr version (if you want the album summed up in a sentence, look here)
Songs I Recommend To Those Not Getting The Full Album
I have three reviews already written (why come to the party if you're not prepared, right?) and plan on posting them, along with a little thing I wrote up explaining what the numerical scores mean to me.
Constructive criticism, the most useful kind, is always appreciated. However, I would like it very much if it was less of the "lol, u suk" variety, and more of the "I appreciate your style, but here are some ways that you could improve good sir!"
If people like my reviews, I will post more, and will maybe even take requests, if I can get a hold of the album in question. If they are not liked, I will vanish into obscurity once again!
Also, a little disclaimer, I somehow have less than zero musical training, so if I call an instrument or technique the wrong word, please don't beat me for it, just correct me. Additionally, these reviews are of course, MY OPINION, I am in no way suggesting that it is the only correct view to have, and I am open to having discussions with people who disagree with scores, again, as long as their opinon is not, "ur wrong nub, stfu", and more, "While I appreciate your opinion, I feel this way about said album, etc".
