but the review lost all credibility by lumping The Stone Roses in with the slurry of Britpop also-rans who've recently emulated Blur and Pulp by reuniting. Call it a lack of understanding, ignorance or lazy journalism - either way it made for a poor review.
The current search facility is well, to put it mildly, pretty rubbish.
I'd like to see the ability to search for albums by artist, album name, release date (by year and even month if possible), rating (e.g. 8+, DiS recommended, Album of the Year, DiS users AOTY), reviewer.
Sounds a lot, but it needn't be as clunky to use as it sounds. In fact, if done properly, it should be a joy to use and make looking up albums a whole lot easier.
One stage further would be to have a function like rateyourmusic.com and allow users to rate albums and befriend other users. I love that site and the way in which the more you use it and actually rate and 'friend', the more you get out of it in terms of recommendations made and the ability to create custom charts to find new music based on friends tastes.
