    Posted: 05 Aug 2016 at 11:56am
The 3rd Metal Music Archives Reviewer's Challenge will take place starting from the 23rd of September. 

Unlike the two previous Reviewer's Challenges this time the event is being opened up to everyone who wants to take part. Just leave your name in this thread to make sure you are in the posting schedule at the time. 

For those who do not know what the MMA Reviewer's Challenge is, it is basically that an album that has not received any reviews on MMA yet is selected at random from a shortlist and then everyone posts a review for that same album in quick succession. The album must be available for free legal streaming and be for an older releases so as not to disrupt the posting of new release reviews.

We have previously run Reviewer's Challenges for Kentucky by Panopticon and Into the Enchanted Chamber by Timeless Miracle

This time around our randomiser has selected Mighty Cosmic Dances by Oblomov to be the next album under review. 



The album may be streamed on Spotify:


As a warning in advance we will again be asking reviewers to hold off on posting any other reviews that would go into the Older Releases section of the site FrontPage while the challenge is in progress in order to give the event a decent amount of exposure. As we now display ten reviews on the front page in this section the review batches in this next challenge will be bigger and so the block on other reviews will not be in place quite as long, the amount of participants in this challenge depending, of course.

The entrants for this challenge are:

I'm in, of course. My review for this one could be surprising, based on my first listen from a while back, but we'll see how it goes.

I'm not a reviewer, but I may have a go at this just to take part. I can't promise anything very good though.

The spotify songs don't work, it looks like they've been taken down. There's only one song on YT from the album as well. Are there any other ways to listen to it?

All the songs work on Spotify for me. Make sure you're looking at the correct copy of the album (the remastered version). 

If it's still not working for you:

Try a proxy?

Sorry about this I didn't realise Spotify imposed restrictions on certain albums when I suggested this one. Change it if you need to Adam before we get too far into this.

I can't get it on Youtube besides Lionheart. 

The only place I've been able to at least partially listen to it is on Grooveshark(s), found here: http://groovesharks.org/

Well thanks to licencing restrictions in the US this Reviewer's Challenge has now gone down the toilet.

I've no choice but to cancel it and select a new album from the randomiser. One which hopefully is not restricted anywhere.

A new album to be reviewed has been chosen. 

The date for the challenge has been pushed back a week as well.

Please post here if the change means you no longer wish to participate.
