Music magazine delivers their musical opinions of established and emerging artists under their new handle @SPINreviews.,

With nearly 20 writers and staff members, SPIN Magazine is asking itself what many music magazines are asking themselves: What is the role and value of the album review today?

SPIN comments:

The standard music review, once presented as an imperious edict, has increasingly frayed into a redundant, gratuitous novelty in an era of fewer and fewer actual music consumers…The value of the average rock critic’s opinion has plummeted now that a working knowledge of Google can get you high-quality audio of practically any record, so you can listen and decide for yourself whether it’s worth a damn
