You can tell the good review writers from the bad simply by looking at the word count. The best music writers can distill the essence of an album down to a paragraph or two. The worst amateurs will take a whole page to give you a track by track literal description of the music. They’ll make a load of comparisons to other bands and say absolutely nothing.

It’s why I rarely make attempts to review things. I know my limits. Anything resembling a review on this site is really just an attempt to make a record of something I’ve liked.
