For many reasons I’m not doing anywhere near that now – I have a weekly podcast I’m focussing on, and I don’t think people care as much about album reviews; they say that anyway. I know I have some loyal readers that appreciate my take. So I’m still putting up album reviews, writing about my reaction to albums…but sometimes I don’t have anything to say, good or bad, I just cannot be bothered. Doesn’t mean there’s no good music, quite the opposite really – there’s too much for any one person to try to get their head around, which of course is part of the point of why reviews should still matter. A guide. A hint. A prompt. A push in a particular direction, or toward particular directions…
Anyway, rather than monthly digests I’ve moved to quarterly, and rather than separate out only the positive reviews I’m going to include them all (I think there are only two albums on this list that I did not like).
So here is a list of all of the album reviews during the winter months on Off The Tracks for 2017. It will give you a chance to go back through and find things you might have missed.
I’ll put one of these digests up each quarter this year.

The digest-link provides links to all of the individual reviews.
Happy reading…and, fingers crossed, Happy Listening!
