Are You A Music Blogger? Take These Three Approaches To Reviewing 2000s Rock Albums

Lots of music fans maintain blogs that they use to talk about music and offer their reviews of recently released albums. If you're looking for a fun way to always have access to content, even if there aren't any albums coming out that you wish to review, think about reviewing some older albums. Pick a decade of your choice — the 2000s, for example — and make a list of some notable albums from this era that you can review. There are all sorts of different approaches to reviewing 2000s rock albums in this manner, but here are three ideas that you can pursue.

Remember This One?

A feature called "Remember This One?" is an opportunity to review and discuss rock albums from the 2000s that aren't likely in the forefront of peoples' minds right now. A good place to start for this feature is with one-hit wonders — that is, artists who had a hit on a single album, but then faded into some degree of obscurity. There are plenty of artists from the 2000s that fit this description. Your readers will likely appreciate the auditory walk down memory lane, and your reviews may compel them to listen to these one-hit wonders once again.

If Only This Didn't Happen

Another fun feature to consider for your music review blog could be called "If Only This Didn't Happen," in which you focus on albums that today's music fans probably wish weren't a part of their childhoods or early adulthoods. As in any era, there were plenty of cringe-worthy rock acts in the 2000s, and you'll get a kick out of bringing these artists up and noting just how bad some of them were. One particular genre of rock music that you may wish to focus on is rap-rock — a genre that had its 15 minutes of fame but that most people don't listen to today.

Before They Were Big

A lot of popular rock bands today got their start in the early 2000s and may have released albums during this time that weren't commercial successes. A band's early releases, perhaps because of being on a small label, can flop — but that doesn't mean that the artist can surge into prominence with their follow-up work. Identify some big rock bands of today that started out in the early 2000s and review their albums. It's possible that you'll be exposing this work to some fans for the first time.
