Here’s a metaphysical puzzler for you: at what point will the number of album reviews in the world exceed the number of albums released? Some albums, of course, never get reviewed. Others are reviewed a billion billion times, or so it would seem (note hypocrisy of Mag Fields link below). Here’s Piero Scaruffi with his Review of 2000 Albums. And that’s a number, not a date.

Scaruffi is an Italian guy who is liberal with the numbers 5, 6, and 7 in his marking system, and most ungenerous with all the others. His site is tough going, because of the translation difficulties, and because it also bears the defiant look of a page which was coded in 1994 and is damned if it’s going to change now. But if you think size matters in reviewing terms, you’ll surely like it. (via Martin).
