Hey all, just looking to get some feedback/criticism on my reviews. I used to write multiple genre reviews for a zine I ran back in 08 - 10 but I've been slowly writing some here for the archives and even have started making effort to do YouTube reviews etc

Sitting on a heap of half finished and first paragraph reviews. It can take me a while or I just get the shits and spit it out ha

What's with the 9 year gap between your first and second review?

Pretty much just writing reviews for my zine at the time.
Sorta need to get myself into a consistent writing form If I want to do it on YouTube if I want a solid following so need to work on consistency

I recommend you use the Feedback Workshop (on the same page as this, but permanently stuck to the top), more people will visit that thread.

Try to avoid repeating how good/bad an aspect of the music is and instead state it once and explain why. Justifications matter to readers more than having it ingrained into their DNA how much you hate a demo by a band called Sperma Reject.

Also, read back over your reviews and check for any cringe-inducing statements that need to be removed. I made this mistake quite frequently when I started reviewing, and please try to avoid writing stuff like "fuck yeah baby" and "fuck no and get fucked" in the future.

^Thanks man, got a few reviews in draft that I won't submit until they're pretty much the best they can be.
Yeah that's my inner Aussie comin' out, foul mouthed as always

Just FYI, I have commented on your reviews in the Feedback thread.
