Though it was a competitor to MusicWeb International I'm sure I'm not the only MusicWeb contributor who will regret its demise.
I think the closure of IRR is a very clear sign of the changes and pressures in the recording industry at present. There are few sources for serious appraisals of recordings nowadays though, ironically, collectors need them more and more I'd suggest.
Like you I valued having IRR as a traditional magazine. However, I think one of IRR's weaknesses was that it never developed a significant online presence in parallel with its magazine.
