Music critics and music writers also review—recordings of music, including individual songs or pieces and entire albums. In the case of a review of a whole album, the reviewer will not only judge the different songs or poems; they will also decide how well all of the songs or pieces work together or go together.
The age of digital downloads may considerably change the album review. Where previously albums were purchased as collections of songs, often with a common theme, the rise of individual song downloads may have a significant impact on consumers’ exposure to an artist’s music. Die-hard fans will most likely continue to explore an artist’s complete work, but individuals will most likely make significantly different choices and “cherry-pick” songs. Reviews by a leading professional
The concept of “singles” or individual hits marked for retail has been around for a long time; however, the price for a single in the days of CDs or 45’s was much closer to the full album price. When you consider that each song on an artist’s album is often priced at the same amount, the odds of the average consumer purchase the entire collection instead of selecting the “hit” songs decreases significantly.
Reviews of live music performances are typically short articles that tell readers about the performers or group(s) that were involved and the pieces or songs performed. The comments made by reviewers fall, roughly into two categories: technical comments and subjective/artistic comments. The elements in the “technical” group include rhythmic “togetherness”, intonation, errors or slip-ups, and so on.
These elements are fairly “black and white”, Pianist playing a concerto. And, either playing the right notes on a climactic scale or missing it. The subjective comments refer to elements which are a matter of taste. And, the balance between the different elements in a review (information about the performer or group). Information about the pieces/songs; commentary about the technical and subjective aspects of the performance) depends on the audience.
There are so many contributing factors to be taken into account when performing a review. It takes a long time to carry out a complete analysis of the performance of the component. The overall performance is required. Because this is to what a customer will relate to if thinking of purchasing the item. When I have a review carried out, I have to wait over a month to get the results. But believe me, the result is well waiting for because every effect has been positive!
A bought review is the system where the creator (usually a company) of a new product pays a reviewer to review his new product. Primarily used in the car, movie, and game industry, this, the system creates a kind of undercover advertising. Bought reviews tend to be biased. In some cases, a bought review may be independent, if the person hired to do the report has a strong reputation for independence and integrity. Even if a “bought review” from a respected critic is independent, the perception of potential bias will remain, due to the financial relationship between the company and the critic.
The musicologist Winton Dean has suggested that “music is probably the most difficult of the arts to criticise. Unlike the plastic or literary arts, the ‘language’ of music does not explicitly relate to human sensory experience. Dean’s words, “the word ‘love’ is a standard coin in life and literature: the note C has nothing to do with breakfast or railway journeys or marital harmony.
Like dramatic art, music recreated at every performance, and criticism may, therefore, be directed both at the text (musical score) and the performance. More specifically, as music has a temporal dimension that requires repetition or development of its material “problems of balance, contrast, expectation and fulfilment … are more central to music than to other arts, supported as these are by verbal or representational content. The absence of a systematic or consensus-based musical aesthetics has also tended to make music criticism a highly subjective issue. “There is no counter-check outside the critic’s personality.
All of the reviews have been by an independent person, well known in the audio industry. I have never met any of the people who have performed these reviews. And all contacts have been initiated via email. I have been surprised, just how good some of the studies have been. And this makes me realise just how right my cables are!

I have read many discussions over the past years. I never understood how a review could say one thing when, in reality, the component is not up to the specification. Specific cables indeed fell short of a spine-tingling review given by a leading magazine. Every person has to test the item in the comfort of their own home.
It is always better to let the customer tell their story because that’s what this business needs—the customer, who is the cornerstone of the company. When a review is received, I add to the database. Any member of the public is more than welcome to contact the author of the report for more information. Perkune audiophile cables have just entered their firth year of operation, and I can offer you the following Reviews by leading professionals, taken from over the past four years. Satisfied customers have sent all testimonies. And, this is the basis, on which I build my business.
How to judge a cable which you have not heard is impossible. How can you be sure everything the manufacturer claims is possible. If you read the results that people are getting by using my cables, it will give you an indication. And maybe try the cables for yourself, remember nothing ventured nothing gained. Unfortunately, there are thousands of companies who offer products that certainly do not live up to the claims made by the manufacturer. I suggest a full money-back guarantee. And, would like to state that in over four years of operations, I have not had to use this guarantee. Because when a person hears the results of any of my cables, they always order more.
The part of the business that I love. Yes, Customer comments. Because this means that I am indeed doing something right, I always like to read the latest comments on the cables they have received and this helps me and also inspires me to develop and expand my range of audio cables. As I receive customer testimonials, they will be l added to the database. And, you are more than welcome to request the name and email address of the person making a particular comment. I have tried to put the feedback into order and placed in categories to make it easier. Please see below and select the category that you wish to view.
