Sorry guys I'm not good at RIYL's at all but I'll try and include one next time. Thanks for the kind words though!

This is really well written though. I think you've come a long way since we started writing together in the summer.

Thanks man. The first review I ever wrote for music was that killer mike review I did for MCMG, which was like a month before we started sanctuary. Crazy to think of the ground I've covered in 8 months

Not to mention, if there's an artist that Jake compares him too that I also haven't heard of in the RIYL, I can check them out too.
I definitely see what you're saying and know what you're getting at. I do make a few comparisons within the review, and forcing myself to come up with a list of people that sound like this artist is just hard for me to do

Agreed, I struggled to come up with RIYLs for the few I've written
It's a bit of a double edged sword; it can help people determine whether or not they should check out the artist to begin with, but it can also give people the wrong idea of what an artist sounds like since everyone's going to be able to draw different comparisons. Which is why I would rather not do it.
