It’s not easy finding good music reviews nowadays, especially with the proliferation of blogs and websites where anyone who is anyone can pipe up with their two cents worth of knowledge about whatever they want to say about the latest Ting Tings B-side…however, you should not give up hope. There are still great music reviews out there, you just have to search a little harder to find them, among the ether of sub-standard sites and webpages.
The best thing to do is to rely on word of mouth advice from people who you trust and once you find a site that delivers top quality reviews, stick with it! Pick your genre and search the web for reviews in artists in that genre, then just spend a few hours comparing and contrasting the various writing styles until you find one that you like! Of course, if you find one that you like straight away, then count your lucky stars and stick with that one…
Everybody likes different styles of music, but what the great thing is about the various sites that showcase music reviews is that you can be persuaded to listen to new material by the power of the reviewer’s writing; you never know, you may discover a whole new style of music for you to explore and enjoy, just by reading a short, glowing review!
So, go and check out all the sites that the World Wide Web has to offer and when you have found one that you like, don’t desert it, either keep retuning to it or sign up to its mailing list…have fun!
