I’ve gotten pretty lazy about things like picking movies these days. Why not let Rotten Tomatoes pick the flick?
My favorite feature is the Rotten Tomatoes-like reader rating of new album releases. Why is it the simplest ideas make the most sense.
Okay, maybe it’s not the latest thing, but it’s new to me – and maybe to a few of you. I do tend to stumble onto the obvious now and again.
I was never the first kid with the hottest new toy anyway, so what’s new about this?
Anyway, so, what was hot on Metacritic in 2009? Nirvana’s ‘Live at Reading” was the top rated album, with Leonard Cohen’s ‘Live in London’ right behind.
Obviously, these things are based on taste, and there’s no guarantee that the site’s readers will see eye-to-eye with you on all thing. But I find the more people chime in the more things level out.
At least that’s me.
