These reviews work best when they're not the "traditional" book-report review. If you know a lot about music, that's cool; but if you don't, go with the story of how you found the music and what it means to you. Rolling Stone and Paste are doing a pretty good job of analyzing tunes: we aren't that. Tell us more about how this music relates to life: concrete things. Also, pair it with a drink. What goes down with these beats?
How we want it:
Format it with the pertinent information first: album title, artist, release date, label, length. Then the narrative. And finally, the drink.
