This album review comes with a quick history lesson so my upcoming comparison will make sense. In the winter of 1978, Marvin Gaye released Here My Dear, possibly his most commercially disappointing album. Despite this fact, it may be one of his most brilliant albums in retrospect.
This is my blog and I run it entirely alone. I opened up an Artist Submissions portion of the site and response has been overwhelming. To those who have heard back from me, thank you. From those who I haven’t spoken to yet, my apologies.
Which is why I’m asking for your help. Do you like music? Do you have free time on your hands? Do you utilize social media often? Where there’s a position at Hip-Hop Sense for you. For Free.99 per hour, you get to rummage through my music archive and give artists feedback for their music. A) I can’t do it alone B) A second opinion is always useful.
