Best Music Review Web Sites

Self-Explanatory
1Metacritic.com

Excellent resource to see consensus of new music releases. Highly recommended.
2Pitchfork

Insightful, sometimes wordy reviews. In depth rating scale. Site is often way too slow. Heavily geared towards alternative rock releases.
3All Music

Comprehensive and invaluable music resource. Star rating system next to useless and reviews often do not match rating. High traffic often causes slowness
4Robert Christgau

Dean of music critics. Archived reviews go back to the sixties. Idiosyncratic choices for reviews. Heavy on international releases and pop music and light on alternative artists.
5Stylus Magazine

One of my new favorites. Good broad selection of music. Sometimes slams my favorites but usually provides a well-considered review.
6Pop Matters

I like the embedded videos in the reviews.
7Sputnik Music

Often excellent reviews but way too much emphasis on metal and pop. Get some grown-ups in here, will you?
8Trouser Press

Good historical reference. Short reviews but no rating system.
9Rolling Stone

Kind of behind the times, but I have to admit that when I go into a music store, I always read the album reviews in the latest issue. I rarely use the website.
