No - I tried to get in touch with a dozen or so bloggers to review it and even though most had a note on their site saying they were looking for submissions, most said they didn't have the time. I get to do one Q & A, but that's it. I suppose knowing a "tastemaker" would be useful!

Totally agree with you about being good is only half the battle. There's probably thousands of band out here who are at the same level, but it's the one or two who get lucky and are noticed by some A & R guy by accident who will make it. That's life though.
