Seriously guys, I was searching through the website Allmusic and came to the conclusion that the majority of the website is a joke.
I looked through the genre section and everything is misplaced; bands not belonging in the right sections.
There reviews don't credit elements relating to the genre but rather evokes bias slander and calls deep lyrics emo as it labels the band screamo.

I want to know what you guys credit this website as.

I know, right. They placed BTBAM as post-hardcore indian inspired metal core but it's clearly post-WW2 chianti sipping juice core.

I've looked on there a few times to see what they thought of albums I was looking to get. I find I agree with their reviews about eight times out of ten.

I bet they've just given a band TS likes a bad review <_<


I do this. With new bands I'm getting into, it goes something like:

1)Find band's page on wikipedia
2)Open all albums in new tabs
3)Narrow down by reviews. (Although compilation albums get special credit.)

Found I usually agree with the reviews. The only time I didn't is when I was younger - any band I was wanking over at the time, I would immediately discredit any allmusic review that dared to question their awesomeness.

Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

Meh, some of their reviewers are alright, some aren't so good. Like any magazine or website.

Possibly the best .gif I've ever seen.

And I like allmusic. Generally have good reviews.
#23
I like it because it easily has all of a bands details. Also the reviews clearly aren't written by professionals and are probably done by users, so they're not exactly the most balanced and reasonable, but they're usually less biased than other user based reviews on other sites.

For reviewing purposes it might not be the best website, but the scores they give to an album are extremely accurate when you compare them to other sources of top critics. Those people just know their music, but they're not as good writing it down.

Rateyourmusic is a lot better.

Well, there are different reviewers. But some of them are absolutely terrible. Why pick someone who obviously have no idea about the genre or the music at all and seems to genuinly dislike it.
