Just in case you want some background on the characters that run The Write Reviews, we thought we would drop a little bit of info for you.
Better known as the Writer’s Writer, Warren Peace feels language and communication in music is just as important as the music itself, as words can completely alter a mood or change a train of thought.
A former recording artist himself, he understand the technicalities of mixing down lyrics, mastering albums, developing a flow and rhythm with words, creating hooks, and breaking down bars. If there was ever a voice in hip hop who gave a completely unbiased, constructive review backed with reasoning, that voice belongs to Warren Peace. He remains faceless to remain unbiased, not wanting to be swayed or influenced by anything other than his genuine reflection of the music itself. He is very thorough, listening to every album at least three times without distraction before beginning to analyze it. It’s this principle that artists have shown the most appreciation for.
He is the founder of The Write Reviews, editor, writer, handles site maintenance, head of marketing, and everything in between. You can contact Warren Peace at any time via email firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/WarrenPeaceOfficialPage
Warren asked me to introduce myself to the readers. My name is Annexx513. I’m from Cincinnati. I’m not here to trash anyone. I’m not here to destroy careers. I’m here to help build artists, to offer friendly advice from the consumer of music perspective. I’m also here to offer commentary on the music industry.
I’m not a musician. I don’t know anything about composition or music theory. But I know words. I know iambic pentameter. I know flow. I read poetry. Great poets. Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, Tupac Shakur, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Emily Dickens, Emily Barrett Browning, just to name a few. Hip-hop is poetry.
Music is poetry. Any and all music containing lyrics is poetry. Poetry makes you feel something. Emotionally. So when I listen to music, I listen to it with all of me. I am completely present in the music. If, I can’t feel it, I don’t enjoy it. I look for metaphors, similes, punchlines. It’s all about the bar to me. I listen for technicalities, rhyme schemes, patterns, flow. I listen to things that writers don’t ignore.
And since this is The Write Reviews, all of my reviews will deal with the writing. Show us your pen game.
