Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores alone, however, do not reveal the important features. It can be quite daunting to take something that is abstract and emotional and often just a listener's primal feelings and distill that into proper language and words. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun. At the least, you'll know the music exists which is important with so much out there. Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc. Ultimately, the best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself. 5: Excellent, 4-4.5:Great, 3.5: Good, 2-2.5: Fair, 1-1.5: Bad, 0: Terrible
