Your humble scribe welcomes all.



I write for Soundshock UK, an excellent webzine covering all things metal. My reviews will come from there. Or rather, they would if they didn't keep getting declined. Ah well.



If you wish to contact me about my submissions to MA for any reason, send a message to the listed e-mail address. Any praise/criticism/scorn/offers of cheap whiskey you may wish to bestow are welcome.



RATING SYSTEM:
100: An essentially perfect album.
95+: Genre-definer and instant classic.
90+: Just short of the big time, but usually a must-listen.
80+: Highly recommended and great fun.
70+: Noticeable shortcomings, but will bolster a collection nicely.
60+: Good; perhaps try a sampler before committing yourself.
50+: An average record that may disappoint fans/disinterest newcomers.
40+: Poor, but listenable.
30+: For completists only.
20+: Best to avoid.
10+: Actively uncomfortable.
0+: Delete it from the download queue, put it back on the shelf, and flee.
