GUEST,Paul Slade CD Reviewer accepting Trad entries (31) RE: CD Reviewer accepting Trad entries 31 Aug 12

Musicmick: What you're describing here is not a reviewer. It's a publicist. The same ends could be achieved by simply reprinting every CD's press release guff verbatim.

A publicist works for the individual or band producing the CD, and his job is to maximise its sales. A reviewer works for his readers, and his job is to offer articulate and considered judgement - pro or con - to help guide those readers' buying decisions. It's a crucial distinction, and there's no fudging it.
