It's Like a Pretentious Video Store, but For Music, and On the Web...
The music geek in my loves, loves, LOVES theAll Music Guide. It is like the IMDb for music, but with REVIEWS of everything. And usually rather thorough and geeky reviews. Take, for example, this quote from the review of the new Dave Matthews solo album:

Even though he's cut a lot of fat off his songs, he still favors meandering to directness, which combined with the deliberately somber mood of the album means this often sounds like Automatic for the People as written and performed by Sting.

I don't really agree with the statement... So far the disc is like any other DMB album, but with less horns and more doom-and-gloom. Dave goes goth if you will... But regardless AMG is a rockin' website; you can easily loose hours and hours surfing around it, and it is more than a little dangerous when combined with the instant gratification of the iTunes Music Store.
