All The 2023 Weeks in Music in One Place

Another component of our conformist Jamboree... The gregorian calendar beats us into a submissive, appeasing y'all with lists...

by LamontPaul, Founder & Publisher
first published: December, 2023

approximate reading time: minutes

That's a lot of reviews.

So here it is... a 2023 jamboree. All of the Weeks in Music in one place (I think I got them all) assembled in the quantities consumed by our readers of which there are actually possibly millions. Which is totally weird to think about.

How many records did Outsideleft review in 2023? Why that would be...1118 (out of maybe 43,800,000 releases - dude our ears are weak!!!)

We liked a lot of records a lot... 
421 (37%) received the max 5 Hearts
Liked a lot some
300 (27%) were given 4 Hearts
Had middling feelings about many
144 (13%) got 3 Hearts
Weren't keen
105 (37%) managed only 2 Hearts
Didn't like much at all
86 (37%) got just 1 Heart - that's barely one a week. Come on! We need more outright nihilism.

And we didn't bother with too much music we crazily hated, only 60 or so were Zero Hearted reviews.

I won't be doing this math next year, anyone ever wondered what the bad jobs with no wages at an online magazine are, come join us, we can work you all day with stupid ideas. And then you get to write too.

All About and Contributors


Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]


If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
