Before You Start (Album Review Guideline - Read First)

F Horn of Valere

Recommended Posts

When doing an Album Review, the goal is to be as specific as possible so that others may actually benefit from the review if they are considering buying the album, therefore detailed specifics are encouraged!


Before you post a review, please check with the Album Archive (link coming soon) to make sure you do not post a duplicate review. Duplicate reviews are not worth points and will be deleted!


Things to include:

- Album Title and Genre (in subject line)

- Cover Art for the album (optional)

- List of tracks in the album

- Rating of each track (out of 10)

- Rating of album (out of 10)


Just remember, a review is just that...a Review! Think of it as more of an article than a thread! To get a feel of what a review should look like, check out the following example: Corki's review of The Silent Force by Within Temptation


To earn points:

- Start a review

- Get helpful responses to your review

- Add useful information to someone else's review.

- Ask questions which lead to furthering the quality of someone else's review.


Also, if a review is deemed to be particularly excellent by the Senior Staffer awarding points, you may possibly be awarded 3 points instead of 2.


Just be warned - if a review is done sloppily and not to the above standards, the Senior Staffer awarding points may choose to award points only to those which reply.


Replies that seem to be done just for the sake of replying and/or spamming, and do not significantly contribute, will not be awarded points.


Once points are awarded in a thread, no further points will be awarded.
