I'm still in. At the very least, this will be my first time participating in a challenge where I don't know the album beforehand, so that ill be interesting.

The whole album is YouTube if I remember correctly so if there's any problems you can go there.

I quite often end up looking on Youtube. The only downside is that sometimes the videos have poor sound quality there.

Sorry everyone but I think I'm going to drop out.

It's not the album, it's me. I tried wrting for the Grave Digger album already which I already knew and couldn't really come up with anything, so I've got no chance with something I don't.

Not only am I adding a reminder to my Google Calendar to remind me not to post reviews of old albums when the challenge is running, I'm actually going to throw my hat in this time.

Do we have to post our reviews in a particular order or to a specific schedule when it kicks off, or do we just post them as and when we have the time once the challenge opens?

Adam works out a posting schedule so that we don't all post them on the same day Warthur. Last time it was around 3 reviews a day a couple of days apart so they all get some time on the front page. I'm sure he'll announce the order nearer the time.

The group's are randomised, but people can swap their position in the schedule if they need to for any reason.

Reviewer's Challenge schedule announcement!

The challenge begins one week from today, on September 23rd.

With nine participants registered here, I have broken the participants into three groups of three. There will be no break days this time so as to not disrupt other reviews for as long. The challenge reviews will all feature in the upcoming trial issue of the MMA online magazine, which will be released shortly afterwards.

Day 1 (September 23rd):

Vim Fuego
aglasshouse
Unitron

Day 2 (September 24th)

DippoMagoo
Time Signature
Nightfly

Day 3 (September 25th)

666sharon666
adg211288
Warthur

As always if anyone wants to swap it can be arranged by posting here. If anyone needs to drop out please let me know as soon as you can.

This post will also be PM'ed to each participant shortly.

I still feel kind of bad about dropping out of this, but I'm looking forward to reading all the reviews.

Challenge starts tomorrow. 

As before, we'd kindly ask others to refrain from posting any Older Release Reviews during these few days to allow the event to get maximum exposure on the site frontpage. In order to not disrupt normal service for as long this time the challenge reviews are being posted over a shorter period of time and the block on other reviews will be lifted on Tuesday, September 27th, one day after the last reviews are posted.

New Release Reviews may be posted as normal. 

All Challenge reviews will be included in the trial issue of the upcoming MMA online magazine, which is aimed to be released by the end of the month.

You shouldn't feel bad. Reviewing something like this isn't for everyone. I've been doing it for nearly 20 years now (that makes me feel SO OLD!), and I struggled with this one a bit. I rewrote some of it three times.

Anyway, the first review is up and posted.

Just a suggestion but wouldn't it be less of a burdon on users if there was like one review a day or something? I mean, if i don't care about an album i'm totally put off by this. If i do find it enamoring then i still don't want to see a flood of reviews on the same day. Just my 2cents worth but why the rush?

Well I put a rating up at least. My unwritten review is there in spirit.
