BLUES CRITIC'S

Southern Soul Blog

A page for writings. Commentary, news and reviews.

Southern Soul, Rhythm & Blues News And Reviews

The Blues Critic is back! Well, sort of. Many of you may remember that this website began as an album reviews website of new and classic Southern Soul/R&B/Blues albums. We have decided to get back into the opinions game. It's just that...opinion. We actually question the usefulness of reviews so we are just doing it for entertainment purposes. People like to read reviews. Simple as that. We aren't accepting submissions for review. We will only review something we like or recommend. Our reviews will often be just as much commentary as review. If we don't like it we won't review it. Writing negative reviews is pointless and unnecessary in our opinion. People have their own tastes. There is no objective way to judge music. You either like it or don't. Yes we're totally self righteous but we have made peace with that. LOL.

In regards to reviews, we will use this grading system:

***** = Excellent. Best Of The Genre
****
= Very Good. Just Shy Of Great
***
= Good. A Solid Effort Though Not Extraordinary
**
= Has It's Moments. Mediocre Over All.

We are stunned and saddened to report the death of Southern Soul Blues diva BIG CYNTHIA.

I (the owner of CDS Records) knew her personally and she was a wonderfully talented and spiritual person. And just very very nice (unusual in the biz). Please say a prayer for her family.
