Hi Katilyn,

In concert with others on here, I think you need to understand the difference between carrying out peer reviews and being a music critic. The word "peer" is the clue here. We are all peers, none of us are superstars and we rely on constructive criticism and feedback from each other as tools to help us progress. What we do with the feedback is up to the writer but there is usually something to take away from a review. I don't consider myself to be any better than anyone else and have had some limited success over the years and try to encourage other songwriters if I think I have something useful and constructive to say. What I haven't done is put 1/5 for the first 4 categories in a song review because that pretty much says that the song and the songwriter are useless, i.e. of the lowest possible value - something you've done to both my song reviews. When I add into that your advice as to how I might consider rewriting the song, who to pitch it to, and how, it just gets a bit difficult to take. I'm a big boy now and I genuinely don't want, or expect, top marks. I do believe in being honest, however, there's ways and means of putting things across and I guess what we all want is that reviewers keep things in perspective. When all's said and done, every one of us is doing our damnedest to write and produce worthy songs - and we are all vulnerable in that process. Every one of us thinks of our songs as or babies, an analogy worth remembering when reviewing a song. You may not like the song but that does not mean it, or the songwriter, is worthless.
I hope you will take these comments as constructive.

Bob
BTW your comment on a recent review "I wouldn't classify this as pop...because this style of music isn't what is most popular right now - see playlists like "Today's Hits" on streaming services, for reference." is both patronising and wrong. "Pop" music is a genre, it encompasses all that is pop and all that has been pop, it's not defined solely by what may be popular at this time.

Katilyn, it has taken me awhile to get back to you on your review of my song "Bang Bang" Your numbers on the review board to me don't make sense... but that's ok! but I'm not sure you know the difference between a music review and a music critic.... the song you reviewed was recorded a cappella, music added later... if you watch any shows like the Voice or American Idol, one thing they seem to stress is finding who you are as an artist... well I know who I am as an artist, what you hear is who I am as an artist...If you really are having a hard time with some ones music you can always cancel and go on to the next.... I hope you can make sure you do not discourage a fledgling in music.
I really hope you do well with your own music because what is life with out music?... I am always a friend of music.

Dear Miss Pulcher, you just reviewed our song,"The Aftershock is Shockin" and I believe this is your forth review of one of our songs and so far.....you haven't been too excited about anything you have heard from us...UGH!
Did you feel the subject matter was interesting in anyway, there aren't that many tunes written about Earth Quakes as I recall??

Anyway it appears that you are pretty tough to please, I hope we will soon be able to write something you might enjoy? Please keep reviewing our songs and I know there will be a composition, that you will like someday.....the odds are in our favor! Hopefully??
Toodles.........
The Corey's
Say, we would love to connect with you, so we might be able to talk more in depth about music composition.....
