User Review Competition: Week of 7/14/2017

It's back! Here's a quick run-down of the rules, rewards, etc. Last year I tried to do this every week and simply didn't have the time, so this WILL NOT be a weekly feature - it will mostly just be on slower weeks where we need to motivate some quality content for featuring. Staff and Contribs are not permitted to partake in this (last year I allowed contribs, but I feel like it takes away from the spirit of the competition because they get a ton of features to begin with). So users only. Choose ANY release from this week's news blog post ( and review it by 7/20, as long as it is not staff dibbed (see below exclusions). I figured there'd be no point in including the staff dibbed releases because you'd put in all that work just to have your feature stolen. Anyway, if you win, your review gets automatically featured (other entries are also eligible to be featured, if they're good enough). The mega-prize though is that you get interviewed by me (or another staffer) for the blog, where we will probe your deepest thoughts with questions like "who would win in a bar fight between Andrew McMahon and Ben Folds?" It's worlds of fun, trust me. Also, to add a twist, if you've already won this competition (say, last year), and you win again, we'll turn the tables and you can interview me. No questions off limits, come at me bro. To officially enter the competition just review any album from this week's list prior to 7/20 and make it clear in the first comment that it is for the user competition. Any other questions just ask!
