noise receptor mission statement:
Write about and promote music I personally appreciate and am passionate about, and avoid reviewing material I dislike, or is derivative.
Based on the above mission statement it logically follows that the majority of material reviewed herein is likely to receive a reasonable to positive review. As this is a personal endeavour, where the majority of items reviewed will have been sourced from my personal collection, I don’t have any sort of hidden agenda of using this site as a means to getting as many free releases as possible. If nothing else, it constitutes a creative outlet where I can promote material I feel is worthy of support and added exposure.
As such I am not interested in allowing unsolicited material to be submitted for review. I personally buy enough music to keep me very busy with music listening, and the last thing I need is to wade through bundles of material I don’t have any passion or connection with. I am also not interested in fulfilling some sort of ‘scene documenter’ role, in trying to review every single new release which comes out. Quality over quantity I say! That said, if you still want to explore potentially submitting material for review, please review the rules: here (as listed under the ‘discretionary’ tab).
Regarding a potential audience for this site, I am sure that with an assessment of the types of releases reviewed, that you will quickly glean whether this site is suited to your musical tastes. Preaching to the converted? Perhaps – however maybe, just maybe, this site will alert you to something you may have missed, or otherwise not thought to check out.
Hopefully you will appreciate the material herein.
