The album promotional protocol was a lot different in 1999. Reviewers got access to music in the weeks coming up to the release to build momentum rather than on the same day it hits Spotify. As far as labels are concerned, every person with a Twitter or Facebook is a reviewer.

Still, I think for a band releasing a great album, there's still gains to be had from having prominent people or websites celebrate it. Even within the more peer-driven music discovery system of this age, a voice like Andrew's still has relevance. Maybe it will take some outsourcing or different distribution form (like reaction videos) but it can still find a place.
