GUEST,Banjiman The role of the CD Reviewer? (69* d) RE: The role of the CD Reviewer? 27 Apr 11

An interesting thread Nutty.

I think Anne Lister talks a lot of sense, I agree with pretty much all she says.

I would also add that I agree with theleveller, if you're not prepared for some criticism, don't produce a CD...... or get it reviewed.

As for using additional musicians, I don't see a problem. For me the live medium and the recorded medium are completely different things, especially for a solo artist..... with a CD I want something that sounds good on repeated listens, but live I want spontaneity and atmosphere, something that it is nigh on impossible to record. A demo for sending to potential gig bookers is another medium again.

I say these things from a household bracing itself for reviews of the other half's new album just starting to come through.......... (Only one so far, very positive as it turns out!)
