5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

9/27/2017 - Review by: Eric Compton
Pop-infused modern rock with dual guitars and a unique production
Australian melodic rockers Awaken I Am are back with a sophomore effort 'Blind Love', the follow-up to the successful debut 'Shields and Crowns'. The band pair with producer Taylor Larson (Periphery) to create an emotional journey introspectively looking at relationships and personal struggle. The dual guitars have a little bite, but mostly painted over with piano and a unique production that seemingly ciphers out portions of the vocals. It is pop-infused modern rock that may be lost to metal fans or an alternative discovery for the consistent headbangers.
Recommended for fans of: Saosin, Linkin Park
