Same. Kind of. :P Unless the reviewer's name is Aiyn Zahev or Sendy (or the likes).
It's not "news" anymore, it's "infotainment".

Reviews, for the most part, are utterly laughable. I detest reading magazine reviews (and certain blogs) as they are mostly just made up fake crap. People like their pulicity and free plugins.

There's a couple of youtubers I trust in fairness.

But I give my own reviews 30 out of 10, go me!

Well I don't read reviews here at kvr. I make all my decisions on the demos and don't care about a review. If I like it and can justify purchasing it I will. If I don't like it, or doesn't offer me anything new, I just erase it from my pc. I haven't read a music magazine for ages and I don't give much for most of their reviews either since they are biased. They don't want to give negative reviews to manufacturers who advertise in their magazines. You don't want to bite the hand that feeds you.

I'm still trying to figure out why this is "site stuff" :shrug:

Three reviews added this last week, and all are 10 out of 10.

And people say Computer Music is biased :hihi:

There are various criteria, for instance absolute performance vs performance relative to price. If a bargain is as good as a €xxx-plugin, it would be kind of unfair to give them the same score.

But as someone else said, most people only write reviews if they are either seriously impressed or pissed by a product. That might explain the inverse Gauss distribution :hihi:
