i hate music critics anyway. they just try and think of all the stupid adjectives they can to describe some music. its a fancy way of saying nothing. rarely do i read a music review and come away with any sense of what the bastard has said. its all fluf.

magazines like spin and rolling stone are just crap, and i don’t even look at them. more than anything i look at allmusic.com, but even they are wrong fairly often enough. i guess theyre better for informational purposes than anything, but the reviews of the albums, at least the stars given to them, are helpful sometimes.

as for audiogalaxy, i have a crappy 26k connection right now so its not worth it. however, next month i should be getting a cable modem and will check it out.
