Now Adding: Reviews!

I've had a lot of correspondence from various kind folks in the music biz asking me if I would be kind enough to review their wares. I am going to start a once-a-week album review with 1-2 paragraph reviews of 3-5 new releases each week.

If you have a new release you'd like me to review, give me a shout! I'll have the first one up in a couple of days.
