We were sitting around the office, minding our own business, when suddenly the AllMusic Blog knocked on the door and said, "Hey, I'm feeling shabby. What's a blog gotta do to get a new look?" The blog has done a lot of good stuff for us, so we were like, "Whoa dude, sorry! All you had to do was ask." Anyway, after having a heart-to-heart talk and making some designing and coding magic, voila -- the AllMusic Blog is back and looking sharper than ever! In addition to an overhaul that makes room for bigger photos, videos and playlists, the new AllMusic Blog features streamlined categories (more on that in a moment) and a slicker commenting system (it's really nice that some "commenters" offered discount prescriptions to you lovely readers, but we don't think you need any of that).

So thank you, old AllMusic Blog, for your years of service, but now it's time to let yourself shine with this killer redesign! Dive in by exploring the blog's categories:
