the (not particularly reliable) RYM site

The average ratings on RYM should be taken with a pinch of salt, but their reviews are usually quite constructive, my go-to place for a quick overlook for a non-jazz-related artist/record (plus I  quite like the basic  layout of the site). In comparison, the ratings and reviews are a joke on Discogs, the former making not much sense ( I even tend to use the rating system as a wishlist priority) and the latter focusing exclusively on audiophile issues. The reviews on amazon can occasionally  be helpful too.

I'm a very big fan of RYMs user lists. They're a great way to get recommendations. That's what I typically use it for.
