Announcing CA Music Reviews!
Since high resolution downloads began consumers have been clamoring for more information about each release. Audiophiles care about much more than bit depth and sample rate of their favorite albums. Important details such as mastering engineer, recording engineer, and the provenance of each download can be difficult to find. In addition to the facts, finding people's opinions and comparisons about musical performances and sound quality can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Wouldn't it be nice if we all had a single location to read and write reviews of our favorite, and not so favorite, music? That's what the new CA
Music Reviews section is all about. CA
Music Reviews isn't limited to high resolution or downloads only, but the greatest need right now is for more information about high resolution downloads. The Music Reviews section of CA
is designed to be a win-win for everyone from the consumer to the online retailer to the artist. Credit should be given where credit is due. On the flip side, when readers discover a mistake has been made preparing a file for high resolution release everyone should have this information. In the long run the quality of the products should increase when people know it will be reviewed subjectively and possibly analyzed objectively in the Music Reviews section of CA
Today's launch of CA
Music Reviews is version 0.9 Beta. The concept is here to stay and the reviews are here to stay, but small tweaks will be made and bugs, if any, will be worked out during this Beta period. All music reviews are encouraged even if the writer doesn't have all the information about an album. Something is better than nothing. Don't want to post graphs? No problem-o. Post what you have or what you want. Others can help fill in the details by leaving comments.
