Lets Do A Thing Where We All Review The Same Album At Once

like for unity
1 ok so normally
we all band together for "the cycle"


"the cycle" somewhat unknown alt/indie/metal/punk band is championed by good users/then 5'd by shitty, michaelsnoxall-level users/then 1'd KILL /then silentpotato comes in and calls everyone a faggot and asks why nobody listens to his esoteric recs... and then after a couple of hundred votes we have like a 3.6.
2 so we all sorta hate each other and like each other at the same time
thats cool
3 lets all pick one album that hasn't gotten that much attention
but is still sorta famous/relevant


and all review that album at once. like 50 reviews of the same thing. All at once.
4rationale:
Scurrilous


Everybody writing about the same album at the same time will make for an interesting comparison about what people focus on when an album is fresh for them... what people choose to write about will also be interesting. Which tracks get the most mentions... Which instruments stand out for people... maybe we could even do a best review contest... someone can mail the winner something they want or something. idk.
5 Sure, mass-mobilizations of internet communities are #ugh by default
but lets try it: NOMINATE ALBUMS IN THE COMMENTS


Open to all suggestions, but i think the best thing we could do is something that suits the braodest cross-section of the site (so: not obscure shit... stuff with singing in it and electric guitars...)
