I don't know if it's been discussed before, but what about reviews? I mean, there's a lot of reviews around the web, but many of them are made by just one or two guys. Think what would happen when anyone can write and explain his own perception of a song, album, artist, etc. (music is subjective, you know?)

Also, that would be useful when someone wants to justify the rating he gave to an album.

It's actually something that's on the list. I think there's a thread somewhere that has some ideas for another page with reviews and expanded stats and ratings.

Currently, lots of places enable user-based submissions of VGM reviews (SEMO, SoundtrackCentral, Amazon, RPGFan, Game-OST to name a few), so I'm not sure how what you say is any different.

Language might be an issue, though. Not all VGMdb users are fluent enough to write a review in English, so I don't think it would be fair to ask for a review with each rating.

I'd like to have the ability to rate/review single tracks. This is one job that may be most feasible on sites which are built around track listings like VGMdb is and thus doesn't directly rival all the other user review sites.

Maybe in the long run different languages could be accepted there similar to the track listings, but that's a different can of worms.

That has been discussed a few times already. I think Gigablah is still working on it.

I think that change is more work than you think. I believe the idea is to have track by track artist credits etc aswell. No easy task.
