How about some honesty with class

By Mistah_A, 2009-07-15

<p>Spent a few hours roaming this site.&nbsp; I find it a bit disturbing that the reviews are sometimes less than honest.&nbsp; Granted there are many good, excellent, and great artists&nbsp;as well as&nbsp;material to be found, however all the glowiung reviews on the mediocre and just plain awful stuff is a bit hard to swallow.</p><p>The Music business is a cruel and cold business and I very much appreciate all the positive support you all give each other. (As it should be) but in my minds eye appropriately worded constructive criticism would provide a platform to broaden the artist's horizons and&nbsp;development if in fact it was intended only as a suggestion or reccomendation for improvement.</p><p>I have been a performing artist for more years than I care to mention and I will offer this.&nbsp; I learned more and improved as a player when I payed attention to the less than glowing reviews I received.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>

<p>Aa a reviewer with no known credentials never give a bad review to berate or demean a fellow artist but rather suggest things that might stimulate the artist to explore alternatives.&nbsp; A critical review is not a bad review but it&nbsp;should be an honest one.</p><p>Just my thoughts for all you aspiring artists.&nbsp; Keep up the good work I have listened to a bunch of excellent material and talents across so may genre's.&nbsp;</p>
