Sgt Pepper;2730384 said:This is my main worry as well-- that a band could potentially make it in the real store, but can't because they've already been released on the RBN. I'm hoping HMX will have some sort of method for ensuring that release on the RBN doesn't let great music from getting lost in the shuffle.
Edgehead;2730395 said:So signing up for the XNA solely to review songs before they are released would work sort of as a subscription fee to play all the songs, no?
geo2n2;2730393 said:Like some others my only concern is HMX essentially telling lesser known or on-major label bands to "make them yourselves or not got in."
hmxsean;2730389 said:Not into closed beta, but certainly public beta when that goes live.
hmxsean;2730278 said:It won't be cheaper (because it is still an XNA membership), but we do hope people will do this so we can get the songs through more efficiently. And of course the upside is you get to play all the RBN songs before anyone else.

geo2n2;2730393 said:Do this mean we won't see ANY "indie" bands from HMX themselves? Given a choice, I'd rather see HMX master the charts themselves. Like some others my only concern is HMX essentially telling lesser known or on-major label bands to "make them yourselves or not got in."
hmxsean;2730439 said:You know it. I'm smooth, like a Christopher Cross song.
ExcessNeo;2730412 said:I'm guessing that after they are passed through they drop from the Review system for playing.
HMXEnosity;2730443 said:I think if there's an indie and that we're excited about, there's still a huge possibility that we will chart them.
Edgehead;2730478 said:So, if I were to pay the $100 dollars say 2 months after this is launched, because I want to see how smoothly it runs before dropping that kind of money. Would there ever be a cap on the amount of people allowed to review material or is it theoretically anyone who wants to can regardless of how many are doing it?
