The Reviews section of MVRemix is one of the most highly regarded and heavily praised both on and offline. With reviewers of all different backgrounds, a pledge to remain unbiased and the door left open for multiple reviews (from different writers) on one album enables us to present as fresh and true of a critique as possible. We have no friends, especially not artists, so hurting feelings isn't a concern of ours.

MVRemix album review scores are based on the opinions of the writers. Each album is reviewed solely as an independent entity, without comparison to other album scores or sales ranks (i.e. commercial vs. underground). That is, there is no "curve," and scores are not comparable to the scores of other albums.
