BBC Album Reviews to close this month

The BBC's popular written Album Reviews will be scrapped from the end of this month due to budget cuts.

The critical corner of the BBC's online music coverage, passing judgement on the latest LPs in various genres each week, the reviews were edited by respected journalist Mike Diver.

He will leave his position at at UBC Media, which won the tender to provide the BBC Album Reviews in summer 2009, when the current contract period ends on April 1.
