Its my opinion, alot of the reviews in this music scene and even mainstream depending on who's giving it are biased, either because the reviewer is a huge fan of that genre, hates the genre, or getting perks from the label. Few critics are honest. In my opinion, I hate Under The Gun reviews, they always score hardcore bands high and so does AltPress. Then APnet hates on the post-hardcore/scene stuff.
How is it not honest if someone is a likes a genre? If you know they like that genre, then it's still honest.
