Hey all, my name’s Chris and this site here WAS a 2009 project wherein I challenged myself to write a large-ish article about a different album every single day of that year. The good news is: I succeeded! The bad news is: I completely lost interest in writing about music and spent 2 years not writing about anything in particular. The pretty ok news is: I’m back! Due to various constraints, however, I can’t promise to write every day, but I will write every time.
I am not a journalist, nor am I even a writer. I am a musician, and I love music at least enough to want to talk about it every single day on the internet. My taste in music is fairly far-reaching, so there may be a little something here for everyone.
If you like what you read, please drop in a comment or two so I know someone out there is watching, and I do always love to see other insights into the music I’m talking about. I get all comments by e-mail, no matter how old the article, so please send away!
If you don’t like what you read, just remember two things:
1. These are not objective “reviews”, I specifically write to reflect my own opinions and biases, and would never ask anyone to interpret my work as “professional”. I am merely talking about albums as if I were conversing with someone about them. Thus, differences of opinion are certainly welcome, but to call into question my “professionalism” in expressing my opinions is like criticizing my ability to ride a unicorn.
2. Sometimes I make factual errors, and I DO appreciate it when people step up and correct them. Sometimes, in lieu of actual research (or in some cases where research is impossible due to the obscurity of the material), I just throw something out there that may look like a fact but, in fact, may be a lie. Thus, tact is appreciated when correcting my missteps, but calling me names and other adjectives, no matter how creatively, is kind of a waste of time on both our parts.
I used to have a Twitter site, but The Man shut me down because it got hacked. Sorry about that. I do, however, have a Facebook Fan Page where you can interact with me and other reader(s) to your heart’s malicious content!
Anyways, hope you enjoy the writing as much as I enjoyed the albums!
SPECIAL NOTE: if you (or someone you represent) have recorded a full-length or EP album and would like to have it reviewed FOR FREE, just get in touch with me here or via my e-mail (email@example.com), and let me know! My only criteria is that I have to be able to hear the album, of course. Physical CD’s preferred but will accept free downloads, especially in FLAC as lossless is the only way to roll, I don’t accept free-streaming-only because come on how are you not able to sell that? I make it a point to make sure people can find your music to purchase as well, so let me know!
