We've got album reviews.. what about live performance reviews? help people to know weather to go to that 150$ concert or not biggrin.gif This idea sprang up just now at 1:12am as i lay in my bed awaiting 11 hours from now when i get to leave for toronto to see Symphony X and Into Eternity.. hope others think this is a good idea so that i can write a review when i get back biggrin.gif

Certainly write a review smile.gif If you look at the bottom on the main page, there is already a Concert Review from Kaneda. I think that has been there all day and maybe yesterday? Not sure, but it is very cool idea to have that.

P.S Enjoy the show!

its been there for quite a while, Kaneda did a great job i must say. But i think that if we are gonna come up with more reviews, we are gonna need another Subforum, like the Album Reviews.
Hemlok
Oh sorry, when I seen that on the front page I just assumed there was a subforum created.
Kaneda
Didn't even know it was added to the front page until now ohmy.gif

But yeah, I indirectly wondered about a concert review forum in the subtitle of that post, but since there wasn't one, the Roskilde post eventually didn't turn into a review either - just a typical post biggrin.gif

But yeah, I for one would like a concert review forum. I never read album reviews anymore - they're the hardest kind of culture review to write, and I've yet to find anyone doing a really good job on them - in papers or on the web. Albums are just difficult to speak of concretely compared to film or literature. Spent a year of university studying (practical) journalism of culture, and I stayed far away from writing any music reviews.

Concert reviews are a different matter, since they often have a frame of reference, which the reviewer and the reader shares - the albums wink.gif So a concert is easier to write about. There's something to compare it to. And as an event (as opposed to a "cultural artefact" as our journalism teacher would have called it) they mostly lend themselves to more interesting writing.

But the Roskilde/Muse post still isn't a review smile.gif If a concert review forum popped up (and it seems Kris agrees it's a good idea), I might write some real ones wink.gif

Ok - so my original thought would be to first get some more concert reviews - and then have a board for it...

But perhaps we should do it the other way around?

By the way thanks a lot Kaneda for getting this started! smile.gif

We have got one now! biggrin.gif I have also moved the two "concert reviews board" related topics we had to the right spot!
