glueman Writing folk music reviews (124* d) RE: Writing folk music reviews 20 Jul 11

I agree Flora G. As music becomes more targeted reviews are increasingly democratic, through blogs, Amazon, Facebook, etc. We take them or leave them but we're not paying for an individual's 'discernment' which is always informed by their taste and imagination, or lack of it.

The recording industry many of us grew up with was a top-down affair and future models will, IMO, be more attuned to folk and its processes. Fewer people will get stupidly rich from the proceeds but I won't mourn its excesses or self-indulence.
