Never heard of any of em. This is getting annoying.

Uh. What's the point in them reviewing bands you already know about? Seems like a waste of time to me.

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.

Okay, point taken. I am not too mad to realize you got a point. And, I'm not whining. I myself write reviews, just not here.

It does make sense...if you took the time to think about it. Which you didn't. But, It isn't so much about the band, as it is the record. A lot of times, I will read a review and then go listen to it, and find I don't like it have as much as I thought. I admit too, that I have found some awesome bands through here. Example: Amber Pacific, Yellowcard and All Time Low. But, sometimes I get tired of reviews being posted about bands I don't know about. Call it a comfort thing. That's all.

I wasn't trying to whine.

I wasn't trying to complain.

I was just trying to make sense of my world.

Oh, I know exactly what you were trying to say. Fact is though, the post you wrote was a complaint about there being all bands you don't know about.

Just don't be shocked when people respond to the post you wrote. Not what you may have or may not have meant by it.
