Question: What are the chances of my record getting reviewed in AMP?
We have space to review about 5-10%, at best, of the discs submitted to us. We try to strike a balance between major-label, indie-label, and self-released albums. We do not review demos, nor are we able to give you personalized feedback.
No. As a practical matter, there are so many CDs already in our offices waiting to be listened to that it would be grossly unfair to jump electronic submissions to the head of the class.
Q: How can I find out whether a review is running in the magazine?
The best way is simply to check the magazine frequently, or look up the new review listings on the front page. Sometimes it may take us two or three months to get around to reviewing a disc; any longer than that, though, probably means we’ve decided not to review it.
DO NOT send rock,
alternative, or pop music.
