Good job everyone! Only did 1 today as I went out but I was a bit burned off, I managed to write 13 reviews and I'm pretty happy with them. Too bad we don't count my other recent reviews as I always do virgin albums :(

I'll be working backwards through the stats as this is a pain in the ass to do. Apologies in advance if I've got a number out here and there, it's pretty possible it's happened. If I've spelled your name wrong, I don't care that much :)

that will be it for today, or at least for the time being. If other people want to finish it off I'm not going to stop them, it's not the most exciting job compiling this stuff :)

Well, I'm about to hit the sack so I'll check the thread tomorrow and do whatever's left compiling-wise. The no life comment was absolutely spot on. I got laid off recently, realized that, other than two reviews a few months back, I hadn't done any reviews in something like three years and just decided to go for it at a rate of 6/day. I think I am a little burnt out on reviewing, though unlike dystopia4, I'm hardly burnt out on metal.

I'm just taking a break for a few days, hardly like I'm abandoning the genre.

Speaking for myself, I've actually found an increased vigor for writing and may actually increase my average output of reviews in the coming weeks. Something about crossing that 2,000 review threshhold and finally getting my favorite Crystal Eyes album reviewed has got me in the zone right now.

By the way, does anybody want to make a definitive statement/decision regarding the one little point of tension regarding whether or not newly released albums during the challenge count or not. It may help to avoid any potential heartache during the next challenge. I guess we could either do a vote/poll on it or the mods can come to some sort of consensus on this, but either way it would probably be a good idea to get this settled now rather than right before the next challenge where others may already have their hearts set on something.

They count, they'd be silly not to. The only reason that rule was even brought up in the first place was to exclude popular albums, which is bullshit because it knocks out plenty of legit releases in the process. If you did a popular album like Autopsy or Amon Amarth, you're kind of a dick, but those reviews count.

Also Hells, everybody seemed to drop that idea a few days ago. The only person who kept bringing it up was... well, you :p

I see, so I'm a dick and I'm continuing to be one by making sure I have clarification on it. Glad to see you're still living up to your name. :p

But seriously, nobody on the opposite side of your point of view on this issue made a clear statement conceding this point so I wanted to make sure there wasn't any ongoing dissent on the point.

I agree with BH 100%. If it's a review virgin, it counts, end of story.

Haha, didn't mean to imply you were a dick for asking! I just found it funny that the issue seemed to be dropped after it hit opposition and yet you kept bringing it up after everybody else seemed to figure it out, that's all. But no, as far as I can tell there's no more dissent, virgins are virgins, it just so happened that there were some very popular virgins this time around, the end.

Gotcha, I actually ended up reviewing all 3 of the albums in question (along with Havok's latest album). I actually requested and got legitimate digital promos from Alex at The Metal Observer out of anticipation, though particularly in Amon Amarth's case I'll be one of 3 or 4 people reviewing it for said website.

Oh well, this challenge went really well and I liked to more laid back atmosphere this time around.

I decided to shut up about it and let the reviews count even though it goes against the spirit of the challenge, anyway it won't be a deal breaker in Hells' review count and yeah, who the hell cares except me anyway.

Well, I think it's sort of lame, too, but whatever. I'm going to start tabulating from where caspian left off. I'm also going to make a more important list: what bands had things reviewed, and how many reviews were posted. That will actually be of value to people other than the reviewers, especially since the cascade of reviews during the challenge means that a lot of them get pushed off the front page really quickly.

This post is for tabulating errors: if for some reason our count is off, I'll update this post. I think most people are cool with the honor system.

iamntbatman - 51 total reviews (not sure which day is short) - add +1 to total
MutantClannfear - 49 total reviews (again not sure of day) - add +2 to total
GuntherTheUndying - 7 total reviews - subtract -1 from total (your earlier post said you did 7 but the count showed 8 for some reason, so I checked)
caspian - 7 total reviews - add +2 to total (based on earlier post and double check)
TwistedPsychology - 1 review (just saw he reviewed the new Queensryche during the challenge)

338 reviews, good work fellas :) Nothing record breaking but that's a fair slab of material reviewed. I wasn't expecting this much, there were good vibes throughout, I would consider this review challenge a success :beer:

I bet "Alice Through the Windshield Glass" is one of them. I thought that band was removed from the site in one of the deathcore purges.

To be honest there's quite a few bad band names on the list :P

The Alice Through the Windshield Glass EP I reviewed sounded metal enough to me, based more on melodeath riffs than metalcore breakdowns and all that jazz. *shrug*

Well I only recognized like 6 bands on the whole list, and I reviewed two of those. For all the shit he did, MutantClannfear also did Artificial Brain, and everyone should get on that.

I didn't manage to write anything in that timespan, sadly. Reviewing virgin albums is a fine practice, though, even if it's not related to any challenge.

:lol: Funny 'cause it's true.

Not sure I'd try for the reviewing as much as I possibly can thing next time. Suppose I'll be honest with you guys - I did notice the quality of my reviews slip a little (not that I was intentionally writing bullshit reviews to up my count) and I also noticed that I started repeating ways of describing things. I tried to fix the repetition in the proofreading stage, but I'm sure some slipped through. None of this was on purpose, of course, just found it hard to maintain consistency with that many reviews, though I definitely did try. That said, I'm happy that I managed to get over 50 (if only by one review) for at least one challenge, although I'll probably take it easier the next time around. All in all, I think this was fun and that it's good to try and push your writing abilities, if only to see how prolific you are capable of being in a short period.

I think it's great that we had a few people this time really trying to go all out. Last time kind of sucked, I was tied in second place for most prolific with a few other people (if my memory doesn't fail me) and I only had eight reviews. The most prolific had nine. With the top 3 this time being 51, 51 and 49 this is obviously infinitely more successful, and neck in neck as we all were in three reviews of each other.

I only managed two, which is the lowest score I've ever had on one of these. On the other hand, I have so much going on until at least the end of September, that that's actually a rather good score. And I'm happy with both of them, they've been on the to-do list.

Good work, people!

I had a lot of fun with this one. Like dystopia4, I found myself repeating a lot of descriptive phrases throughout my reviews and tried to work on that. I had my list of virgins laid out ahead of time and tried to vary my writing so that I wouldn't be stuck with the least interesting stuff at the end of the week. I had the most fun writing the reviews for the 90+% stuff, of course, though I also enjoyed writing the Runemagick review (it probably helped that the album is so stupid/dull that I could really focus on my writing while listening to it). Mainly I was excited to write about the black metal stuff (some cool Finnish bands, some Aussies, some Russians) but I had lots of death/crust I've had for a long time now that still didn't have any reviews so I took a whack at those, too.

All in all a fun week. I think it helped my writing to improve a bit. I've had at least one band react well to one of my reviews, got a couple of fan emails, a couple of review requests and an invitation to join the Metal Observer staff (which I politely turned down). I also read a bunch of neat reviews for some cool bands written by you fine folks so that's definitely a good thing. I'm gonna take a break from reviewing for a bit, I think, but I'm going to try to be more regular about it between challenges from now on.

Good job, everyone!

I felt this review challenge had much more of a presence and importance than the other challenges post-V2 update. Can't wait for the next one!

I didn't get an invitation. :( They'll regret it once they realize I'm like one of maybe three semi-literate BDM reviewers on the Internet!

If you want the gig, I'm sure Alex would probably take you since I don't think they even have someone handling BDM on a regular basis. They have been short-staffed for a little while and honestly given all the stuff I've had going on I have been fairly inactive on there myself until recently.
