I don’t split hairs. I SLICE them.

ginsuIn the interest of complete transparency, may I just say that I don’t believe you shall EVER see me do another CD review on this site.

So…that means you’d better hie your little tushies to The Buzz to catch my opinion of Five for Fighting’s Slice with the quickness of Mercury and his hot lil’ winged feet!  ‘Cause babies – it may not happen again.

Now, let me be as clear as crystal:  I gave my ABSOLUTE HONEST review, and bear nothing but love and respect for all the good folks at One2One Network, who provided me with this opportunity.  They’re a great organization and a pleasure to work with.

I just don’t feel comfortable with reviewing, evidently, unless it’s my own idea.

Yes, I’m the one who dipped my toe in the water and made myself available for solicited reviews.  I wanted to see how the process worked, and my experience has been one that was conducted very professionally.  I have absolutely NO complaints whatsoever on that score.

For me, though – and this is just the way I’m wired, and not meant in ANY WAY to cast the slightest aspersion on bloggers who successfully navigate the “Review Waters” – for me, any review…good or bad…has to come from me spontaneously and organically, or I’m not happy.  I think it’s the control freak in me.

I just told my husband that, and he choked on laughter and responded “Oh, ya THINK?”

So, there’s my extra disclosure on my disclosure, as it were.  (I’m so friggin’ neurotic…*sigh*) But, seriously – just because I suck at reviews doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t check out Five for Fighting’s Slice for yourself…because you TOTALLY should.  I mean, really – what the hell do I know?

Um…we shall return to our regularly scheduled programming on Tuesday, wherein I will either regale you with more of my pithy blathering, or put up another kick ass Guest DJ Shuffle.  You’re just gonna have to swing by to find out!

xoxoxo

    In general, I hate reviews – albums, concerts, movies…whatever.

    I read yours, and would still listen to the album because you were honest about the album and didn’t blow smoke up it’s ass. Or tear it a new one, either.

    I hate reviews because the experience of anything should be individual, and organically driven and one cannot have that experience with a preconceived idea of what they will be encountering.

    Just my opinion and nothing against the process of doing review, I just don’t read and/or give a fuck about them.

    Reviewing is hard work. I know exactly where you’re coming from.

    Speaking of which, I’m ready to launch the new book review blog. If you’re ever moved to talk about a book — a reaction, not necessarily a full-blown review — you’ve got a spot at West of Mars.

    I don’t think I have it in me to review cds and shows. The best I can come up with is how the music makes me feel!
