Found this site – (found? probably wasn’t lost and has been around for a while, although I am new to it)
Anyway – I’ve been visiting it as a listener to see how it works.
Listeners can operate as a ‘scout’ – you listen to songs delivered at random.
Each song has to be listened to for at least 1 min before a written review can be entered.
Reviews have to hit a certain criteria, certain musical aspects have to be addressed and finally you score the track out of ten.
To be honest the rewards aren’t going to make you rich but there is satisfaction. You’re ranked and given a star rating.
The higher your rank the more you are rewarded.
Scores are based on how correct/inline with public opinion you are.
I enjoy it – as a listener it makes me listen differently as I do as a musician – as a musician I can give pertinent advice.
The cool thing is as you score bands you can influence wether that band will get the funds they need to progress.
