Album Swap

Post by skalpel » Tue May 29, 2012 8:10 am

Here's what to do if you want to join in:

- Make a post saying you're free for an album swap.
- When you find somebody who wants to pair up with you, give them an album to listen to and they'll give you one to listen to. It helps if you can provide links to youtube with the songs on from the album, if not - let the person know if they can be heard on Spotify or something instead.
- Once you've finished, review the album (it can be as long or as short a review as you please) and if you wish you can give it a star rating using the star smilies "<gold>" "<grey>" and "<half>"

I'm in.

I can't wait for the Rebecca Black album later this year. She said it will include "a bunch of different kinds of stuff" and that the songs will be "appropriate and clean". Hopefully we can get a serious review of it.

So how are people going to get their hands on the albums? Are we supposed to send them the album or are they expected to buy it?

However, depends on the person. You can stream tons of albums online for example. Failing everything, then yeah you can send the person the album. Shouldn't be a problem really.
