Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I don't know if this belongs in H/A or here, but it has to do with writing, so I figured this would be the place.
Anyway, I've been tasked with writing a record review for my university's weekly paper. The problem is that, even though I've been able to, in the past, express my thoughts regarding certain records verbally to my friends and such, I'm having trouble getting them on paper and making them not suck. Probably because I've never written a review before.
The album in question is Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew - Spirit If..., further complicating matters because this is a pretty complex album. Obviously, since this is a newspaper review, I'm not going to be using lots of musical vocabulary, etc. But what do I say beyond, "I really like the album?"
Never written and album review before. Don't know what to put down. Any help appreciated.
