Who Are We?

Blinded By Sound was born January 1, 2011 as an internet outpost settled by music obsessives who still believe the web and social media provide the kind of outlet to share that passion with a community of writers and readers across the virtual world. Music, passion, and community are the pillars of the Blinded By Sound foundation.

What Do We Cover?

Blinded By Sound is all music, all the time, and we mean it. If it's music, we'll write about it. We review the latest albums and revisit great albums of the past. We'll write about the big names and the songs we know by heart.  We'll also be a conduit for the glory, preaching the gospel of unheralded geniuses in need of an audience.

We'll tell you what we're listening to and help you see why you should be listening to it, too. We'll analyze, discuss, and sometimes even debate.

We're more than just reviews. We'll talk about what other people are listening to and how they're listening to it, be it CD, vinyl, iPod, and even 8-track. We actually prefer 8-track, now that you mention it, but we're not sure why.

Join Us:

Blinded By Sound is interactive and inclusive. Do you love music? Do you want to share that love with the world? This might be the place for you. Read, comment, discuss, and write with us.
