As I mentioned in my post of about two weeks ago, I mean to give this blog a somewhat different function – not just a repository of reviews of vintage albums, but mainly a showcase for new material. The blog format will allow me to concentrate on the musical content of any album without having to worry about giving a rating – something that I have been increasingly feeling as a pointless constraint.
With my previous post – the review of the Romantic Warriors documentary film – I have inaugurated my blog’s new trend. In the next few days I will start posting reviews of albums released in the past year or so, most of them exclusive to this site – which means my updates will be more frequent. I know I have a small but loyal readership, and many musicians have appreciated the care and effort I put into the reviews I used to write for other sites. This is something I want to continue, though this time at my own pace, and in my own terms.
