Re: The Needle Drop/ Anthony Fantano

I think that the definition of profrssionalism varies from person to person. If a person has a large enough following, it could be assumed that they are professional enough to garner enough attention. If professionalism is all about a large following then rue the day PewDiePie or say a Kardashian v...

Re: The Needle Drop/ Anthony Fantano

The Needle Drop does have a lot of weight and they do music reviews. Just because he doesn't do reviews in a magazine/publication doesn't mean their review isn't credible. Look this is 2016 not 1980 or 1990. Reviews aren't done one way anymore. After initially saying no mainly because I don't like ...

Re: The Needle Drop/ Anthony Fantano

Maybe we should establish some rules for the inclusion of online single reviewers? I agree. I'm of the opinion that reviews from personal websites/blogs/vlogs should never be used as sources since they have little or no editorial oversight. It is likewise hard to gauge the reviewer's expertise in m...

Superb article, although "Black" as a genre might raise some eyebrows (R&B/Hip-hop maybe?).
