Well, just seems like everybody does this to the newbie. So, yeah, thanks for the warm welcome. I only said I was annoyed cause there were so many indie bands out there.
No, everyone does this to someone who whines in a post that makes zero sense.
What's the purpose of reading about bands you already know about? I admit that I do it too, but only because I like to get other perspectives on it. But the real point in a REVIEW is to describe the sound of a band and tell you the quality of said sound so that the reader can choose rather or not they're interested in listening to them. I mean, are you really not going to give The Killers' album a listen whether or not AP has a review of it?
I've found countless bands through the 'Org's reviews and am very thankful they are reviewing bands no one knows (AP too, but different tastes, etc.)
Otherwise reviews would be a single sentence.
Sample: Is good, yay.
