Today, with the Titus Andronicus review, we are introducing our new review format. This will be used for concerts, albums, music festivals, and anything else that we review.
The format is a straight forward expression of 5 separate thoughts with a bit of style and formatting borrowed from the old Larry King USA Today articles. The best comparison would be to 5 text messages about a concert or album from your friend. Some messages may be only one or two words, some may be runon sentences, and some may be paragraphs. We do promise not to ramble on and drift off topic like a text from your favorite grandparent.
Our goal is to be brief, informative, and to not simply rehash the same concert review written city after city using press release information and a few facts about the first 3 or 4 songs played (before the reviewer left to send in the review and head to sleep). We are music fans. Our reviews may come a day late because our ears were ringing, hearts pumping, and adrenaline flowing after a show; and we did not want to sit down to compose our thoughts and edit our pictures and video.
We will try to always include photos and video, because concerts are an experience for the senses.
