I'm in, as usual. I've been less focused on music this year than in past year's, by a lot, (usually I'm at over 200 albums per year on my RYM lists, where this year my goal is just to hit 100 at this point) but I always enjoy doing the review challenges. I do know a ton of 2017 albums both in and out of genres I follow that can use some reviews here, so I'll definitely have a wide range of material to choose from, depending on who I'm paired with.

Please put your name down here if you're interested in taking part in the next MMA Reviewer's Challenge.

The format this time is a random order where everyone doesn't swap albums with each other but for the next person on the list, with that person selecting for someone else and so on, with the last person on the list selecting for the first. You are to select any 2017 album that is on MMA regardless of whether it has already been reviewed or not. It is recommended, considering we're in the last few months of the year and that the MMA Best of 2017 Poll will be open through January - to all members for the first time - that you do your best to choose something you think your assigned partner may enjoy. 

The only other rule for release selection is 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, do check before you select an album your partner has already reviewed. It doesn't matter if they've previously heard it, this may be the push they need to get some words down for it.

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. 

It is best to have a backup album in mind just in case your first choice is region restricted on Spotify, or if your review partner has heard it but not rated it on MMA already. 

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. Hoping to announce pairs at the start of November, if not on October 31st (10 days time). 

Additional: Time permitting, I'd like to run this event twice to maximise new release reviews on MMA before the year is out, with the second event running in December. It will be the same rules but different pairs. Please also let me know if you're interest in this.
