    Metacritic is a great site that also offers lists of book reviews with an overall rating. I've made many a decision based on the reviews given on this site.

    i never really bother with music reviews, just d/l and judge for myself and believe it or not i sometimes buy the cd if i REALLY like it.

    Metacritic is a great site for choosing PS2 games based on the reviews though, and deciding what movie is worth watching at the cinema.

    It is interesting how reviewers from different publications can appraise some albums so variedly. I've never quite worked out whether 'good' and 'bad' music has any meaning outside of an individual's personal viewpoint.
