Will album reviews on MR.com ever happen again?

This is a public shout out to Andrew. As you well know, I have been nagging you for months as to when you will post a review of the excellent debut album by Save The World, which they released last year.You told me you received it ages ago, but admitted you were way behind with reviews - and I note there's been no new reviews on this site since last year. Don't get me wrong - this is your website, most of us pay nothing for the fantastic site and service you offer, and I of course also realise you have a very busy life with family etc. I assume also that for financial reasons you now understandably have to prioritise on promoting acts on your own label, and events such as the MR fest in the US.
It's just that I, and I suspect many others, came to this site mainly for news AND reviews of new albums, and now that this latter aspect of the site seems to have been abandoned it's very frustrating. Also, I am frustrated for Save The World that what for me is one of the very best melodic rock albums released in the last few years, has been largely ignored on this site, other than the many very favourable mentions on this noticeboard.
Andrew, your reviews have always been very detailed and long, so if it is indeed just the lack of time that has caused this part of the site to be neglected recently, what about about the idea of you changing to much briefer short reviews? I for one would be happy with such a compromise, as opposed to no reviews at all.
Anyway, I look forward to your comments, and also the view of others about this. Cheers for now!
