Often-Interesting Reviews of 2,600+ singles and album tracks by some guy

I stumbled on this a while ago, and have enjoyed dipping into it from time to time. It appears to be the semi-obsessive work of a guy who's been reviewing singles and individual album tracks, mostly from the rock n roll era, since 2008.

Here's a list of all the reviews

Projects like this are what makes the WWW, after all it has become, still worth it.

Oh, I will dig into this later, but I have to say that I love the fact the page navigator on the bottom of the home page goes 1,2,3,4...262. That's some dedication, and, dare I say it, best of the web.

Wow, it looks like this started as a group blog focused on general media and technology items and as it went on, the other authors ran out of steam but this guy just… kept reviewing. Hard to tell but I think he’s been regularly keeping this going without collaborators for a decade. Hats off to you, sir. The reviews are excellent and may you get the audience you deserve.

This looks fantastic. I just read his review of The Beatles' Rain, one of my favorites, and he agrees with me for all the right reasons. Could be a good sign!

Ooh, he's got a Spotify playlist with over 3300 songs on it!

I just checked out the first few pages, and it goes from the Supremes to Superchunk. I'm pretty impressed.

I've now blown off work and read to page 33 in the blog.

Dammit, I have meetings to go to today. I'm already late now. Thanks!
