The Latest: Write an Outstanding Music Review Every Single Time

There are a ton of reasons to write a music review. Perhaps you’re writing a blog post, or leaving a review on a review site. Of course, everybody will have a different opinion, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get yours across! Write an outstanding music review every single time by bearing these points in mind.

Get Creative and Have Fun

Nobody wants to read a boring as heck review, so get creative with it and have fun. The best reviews are the entertaining reviews, so experiment with your style of writing. If you don’t have fun writing the review, it’ll shine through in the words you use and nobody will want to read it.king of limbs

Keep it Short and Sweet

Nobody wants to have to make their way through paragraph upon paragraph of review, so keep things short and sweet. A couple hundred words should be just fine. Get to the point without much rambling. This is a skill you’ll need to practice, so make sure you check your word count as you go along. They’ll get used up quicker than you realise. Music reviews are always short and sweet.

Use Powerful Words

Powerful words are just that; powerful. Powerful words will help to paint a picture in the reader’s head. However, you shouldn’t focus too much on using big words too much. You’re trying to be informative, not pretentious.

Assume the Reader Knows a Little Already

You shouldn’t assume your reader is stupid or that they know nothing about music. They probably do know a bit already, as they searched for the review. You don’t have to explain every little detail.

Double Check for Errors

Spelling and grammar mistakes will disrupt the flow of your writing and make you look like you don’t care, so make sure you double check for errors. You can use a separate grammar checker online if you like.

Don’t Talk About Your Love for the Artist

Talking about your love for an artist will only make you look biased, and nobody wants to read a biased review. They want honest reviews, regardless of your feelings towards the artist.

Make a Clear Point

I cannot stress enough how important it is to make a clear point. I read so many reviews that drone on and on, yet fail to specify whether the album or piece of music was any good or not! Make sure you make your point clearly and sum up towards the end, like the reviews on soundista.com.

Be Original

Finally, make sure your review is original. Sure, you can check out reviews for inspo, but leave it there. Copying is not cool, and it can be considered illegal too. If you want to become known as an authority in the music industry, you must focus on being original and unique as well as helpful.

If you stick to these guidelines you should come up with a quality review every time you sit down to write one. Have fun with it and we’ll see you next time!
