Just curious - do you ever offer your unasked for critique of things, if you think it could be really helpful? Example: I saw a young band last Saturday that I thought was great. They gave me a free CD that they'll be releasing in the end of May. The CD sucked. I realized a big part of it sucking was because you couldn't hear any kick drum in the mix. They happened to email me to ask if we would put them on a bill at this all ages show we organize. I said sure, but added (in a very nice long and detailed rant) that I think they really need to do some remixing, bring up the kick drum, blah, blah, blah. They read the email yet didn't respond. I often wish people would tell me what they honestly think, I can take it or leave it and I'm not too sensitive about that kind of thing - but I'm not sure how others react to this stuff. They may think I'm a d*ck right now, but that's okay. I was willing to risk that, if I could be of help - don't know them anyhow. What's your thoughts.... we'd like to know.
