Critical Metrics

Somehow, this very cool website has eluded me until I read about it in the Wall Street Journal. Here's how the site describes itself:

Every week, artists, DJs, music tv networks, newspapers, magazines, retailers, and bloggers recommend hundreds of their favorite new songs.

Critical Metrics keeps track of recommendations and playlists across all media so you can easily find, try, and buy the best new music.

Critical Metrics ranks the top 50 most critically acclaimed current songs but also archives all the songs it has rated since its inception. You can hear most of them for free, watch the video, download the songs at pay services, and waste enormous amounts of time.
