Are there any music review sites out as extensive and as frequently updated as and Rolling Stone?

I've been looking for some good music review websites besides and RollingStone, since they often don't know what they're talking about and I like to get a lot of opinions. Are there any websites out there that are as extensive and as frequently updated? It seems those are the only 2 I can find that are both.

I like the user reviews on Amazon, particularly the charts that show average ratings for a band's entire catalog.

The following are all online versions of proper magazines out of the UK: Q is huge and not bad. I've never found the real world version of this one - but I like its attitude. NME is a standard but nowhere near as good as it used to be. And finally Bang.

I also use Metacritic and The Guardian . And off-question, this is a good place for music news.

Here's a previous Ask Metafilter where quartermass wanted some links to slightly underground music reviews.

Dotmusic isn't bad (although now owned by Yahoo, and not as good as it once was) - also Playlouder.

This thread might give you some ideas.

The War Against Silence mixes good reviews of a mix of music with (sometimes long) personal commentary.

Try Gnod's for some very clickable relatedness exploration.

wow, that War Against Silence site is wonderful! I can't believe the range of the stuff this guy reviews. I can read about the latest prog-metal shred-fest and the latest japanese pop releases. This is a real find. thanks!

War Against Silence is my absolute favorite, but if you like to participate in the reviewing i would highly recommend Rate Your Music.
