Name: Artist

Genre:

Major/indie/unsigned:

Album:

Released:

I will rate it “Overall” out of **** (including halves)

Musicality – the musicians ability to play cohesively (together/tight)

Singing – voice quality, confidence, best fit – with band, versatility, appealing to fans

Lyrics – depth and meaning; interesting and worthy of multiple listens

Flow/Rhythm – Is it crisp and clean, does it make people wanna hop, jump, nod their heads, step, waves their hands like they just don’t care (O.K. You get it!)

Freshness – Is this original, a new sound/style, or song, that gets me outta my seat!

Technicality/Recording – Quality of the recording

Visuals – Videos, advertisements, on Myspace, or elsewhere – does it help enhance or detract from your music/image

Top #2 Songs: I pick my fav’s

Just so everybody knows where I’m coming from, the rubric above is what I will use to review the music/musicians that will be seen here in this “Music Reviews” category in this blog. I will not be able to comment on every category for each artist because it would take too long, however, I will focus on the important ones. If you have any questions, please leave a comment, tweet, or talk to me on Myspace.
