Further to Lodestone of Wrongness’ thread on the Quietus’ Top 100 albums of the first half of 2016, I invite you to pick an album from this list and provide your fellow AWers with a review. It can be as short as a few lines or be a more in-depth critical analysis over several paragraphs – it’s entirely down to how much or little the music moves you, I suppose, or how much time/arsedness you can spare. You could even present it as a series of bullets points – the style you choose doesn’t matter. All I ask is that we refrain from sarcastic one-word reviews like “crap” or something, however strong the temptation.
The first step should be to post here which album (number, artist and title) you intend to listen to so that we don’t get too much overlap, although I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a couple of different perspectives on the same record. I suspect those available on streaming services will be the easiest, risk-free option.
Next, either post your review in this thread or do it as a Nights In if that’s what you feel like. There’s no time limit, so take as long as you want. Hopefully between us we’ll discover some decent new music we can dig/argue about. At the very least we’ll be able to say that we’ve heard of a few of the albums and artists on the list.
