Re: Should AcclaimedMusic give some more detail on albums, like a review quote and history.

A bit more information is always welcome, although it does take some time.
Actually, I personally might be more interested in 'objective' information like a tracklist, album length and maybe credits/recording information.

But some quotes and qualitative information is a good addition as well.
