About Music-Critic

The Internet’s source of Music Criticism and Commentary since 1998.

The Music-Critic website has a tremendous history, and has grown to become a leading source of music, band and album reviews over the past almost 20 years. Originally founded as an online music review site, with reviews written for the people, by the people, the site spent its first 8 years under the guiding hand of Jeremy Governs. It was then bought by Matt Aird and became part of the InfoActive Media family for the last decade.

How Music-Critic Works
There are two types of review page on Music-Critic. The first is the traditional review, most often written by a member of our team or a contributing author. There around 2000 of these, forming an archive built up over the last almost 20 years.

The second type is our aggregated reviews. These are reviews by carefully selected websites and internationally acknowledged music experts. We take their scores and ratings and turn them into a single, easily digestable score that gives a snapshot view of how the Album, Single or Artist was received by the best music critics in the world.

The Music-Critic Difference
Unlike some other review aggregating websites, Music-Critic only features reviews from a carefully chosen list of sites and experts, and only those which can be found online by our readers. While this means we’re likely to have a shorter list of contributing sources, it also means that they are the ones we believe are the best of the best and that can instantly be read in context by viewers.

Our combined scoring system works differently too. Scores are displayed in the popular format of stars, but also displayed out of 100 for those who like to be precise.

We now have well over 10,000 of these reviews – enough to keep you busy listening to new music for years!
