@ Fletcher- Totally agree with your perspective... the one thing is that I don't think Reverbation's charts are a good tool to measure.... anything.... the metrics they are using are phony

From my experience I regularly see artists in the post-#100 position playing major club shows, selling CD's, etc. and I've also seen artists in the "top ten" position for cities that are non-existent outside of Reverbnation.

The problem is Reverbnation weighs heavily on metrics that do not represent actual popularity. And the system allows you to basically buy (or for the unemployed people, spam) your way up, so I see the top artists all the time that are most likely trust fund kids or meth heads that can spam 20 hours a day....

But yeah to some extent we all are guilty of selling the dream
