AP.net Podcast: Being Negative, Buying Vinyl, Inspiring Hashtags...

Posted by - 02:40 PM on 05/23/14
This week on the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Drew, Thomas, and I talk about the role of a "music critic" and our thoughts on negative reviews and negative commentary in general. Why write negative reviews? Why voice a negative opinion? All three of us had different takes on how this plays a role in our online lives. After that there's a lengthy discussion about the current "vinyl debate" and the ethics and business decisions behind licensing and selling vinyl both with or without the artist's explicit permission, and our personal thoughts on the topic and how it relates to our musical world. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies.

Also this episode and our podcast in general should now also be available in the XBox Music Store. I'm not sure exactly how that works -- but was told we're good to go by Microsoft -- so if anyone has an XBox or Windows Phone 8 -- you should be able to find it now. If you can't please let me know.

Ohhh, and Thomas cuts out just a tad at the beginning and was unfixable in post -- but all of that gets fixed within 5 minutes.

And last thing ... if you like our podcast and could rate it on iTunes, that would rule!

Does this even count as a 'review'? Geesh. I feel dumber for having read that.

Oddly relevant given that whole situation.

It's awful. The site is normally fantastically written and covers great content but like...nah. Don't do this. It's bad. You'd be better off going to the p4k jet review route than this.

Thomas tweeted about balance being subpar live (he's spot on, even though he said he liked the album a lot, which is doodoo) and both the singer and guitar player subtweeted about it since he was on their guest list. I guess that requires a positive review in some backwards world.

The negative review topic sounds really interesting. It always bugs me when reviewers clearly go into an album with bias and the write - up is just an attempt to slam the artist rather than critique the art.

Every review is written with bias. Every single one
