Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. 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.
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.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
The Murder of My Sweet
Bye Bye Lullaby
The Murder of My Sweet is generic, trendy female fronted metal. All in all it's not very interesting. The songs are very pedestrian, yet the vocals are fairly decent. The riffs are fairly catchy and there are plenty of hooks thrown in but they fail to ensnare the listener since there isn't really much going on. The album was very hard to listen to as it sounds like a lot of other bands out there and each song sounds almost identical to the previous song. Sample and preview this one but don't spend too much time on it. There is much better metal out and about.
