Was wondering if the capability of searching reviews by score / by genre / by band exists? For example, I'm able to see all reviews from 2010 through 2013 by band and to sort that list in descending order (so favorable reviews are at the top of the list). I'd like to see an additional filter that would only include bands of a certain genre (for example, show me reviews of Death Metal bands submitted between 2010 and 2013 with a 90% or better rating).

Peace.

Seconding this. Would be an awesome way to find new music.

Being able to search for albums by average rating would be nice, too.

Great thought, agreed! Search function using parameters in combination (in drop boxes) such as:

* Review Time (Date Latest Review Submitted)
* Genre
* Band
* Album
* Release Date (Date of album release)
* Avg Score

Don't bump your threads. Especially only after 4 days.

I would certainly take advantage of this. Review scores being broken down into releases would be great as a band may have some abysmal releases and some amazing ones and the crappy reviews shouldn't prevent the good albums from showing up highly ranked in a search. I know this site has always been about the content and not the score since inception but this would be a very useful little feature for me at least.
