I read this interesting tidbit on Digital Music News about whether music critics really matter. It's so easy to listen to music these days, not many of us treat reviews with a make-or-break attitude. I remember being in like the ninth grade and reading a review in Alternative Press about The Treaty of Paris, then downloading their record on Limewire just because of the review. How much do you still care about a reviewer's opinion? Does it depend on the website? On the specific reviewer?
