How are scores decided?
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.

search archives

We recommend though, browsing the archives (if you're looking for a review and the search engine doesn't locate it).
