    Posted: 06 May 2017 at 12:21am
Please put your name down here if you're interested in taking part in the next MMA Reviewer's Challenge.

Like the last challenge, the format for this one will be that every participant will be randomly paired with another and they have to select a album for each other to review, which they then do at their own pace (though preferably not months down the line).

As before, there is no guarantee that anyone will be paired with someone with a similar taste, which is part of the fun.

The only rules for release selection are that it must be available as either a free legal download or on a legal streaming site like Spotify or Bandcamp in its entirety, though obviously it also has to be something that is on the MMA website.  

For this challenge you may select albums that have been previously reviewed so long as the reviewer you are paired with has not already reviewed/rated it. 

How you go about selecting an album for review beyond that is entirely up to you. A few reasons for selecting an album may be:

  • Perhaps there is an album you love that others seem to ignore and want to use the opportunity to try to get that release some attention.
  • Maybe you know something you believe your partner reviewer will like and will make your selection a recommendation. 
  • Or maybe you wish to see what they think of something that you know is outside of their comfort zone, making your selection really focus on the 'challenge' part of the game. 

You're under no obligation to share your motive for album selection with your review partner. 

All I ask is that if you do put your name forward for this that you be a good sport and do the review, no matter if you like the album chosen for you or not. Your review partner has to acknowledge that you might be inclined to give a negative review to the album they choose. 

When there are enough names put forward I will announce the pairings. I'm looking for at least six so we have three pairs of reviewers, but the more the merrier. 

Participants

Okay everyone we've got four pairs now, which will be randomly put together soon. I'm leaving the sign-ups open a few more days, so use that time to start thinking of possible albums. It's recommended to have a backup in case the person you've paired with has already heard the album (but not yet rated it here) or the legal stream is region locked and they can't access it.

I've drafted mine but I need to give the album another listen or two before I post just to see if my opinion changes at all.
