I agree that hReview doesn't make much sense outside of actual reviews.

I would argue that publishing music with the intent that it be  
downloaded to a local audio player is just as much syndication as  
publishing text with the intent that it be downloaded to a local feed  
reader.  So all music downloads are a form of syndication.  I'm not  
suggesting putting audio downloads within a syndicated blog post just  
to use hAtom; I'm suggesting the audio download itself is syndicated  
content, so the audio itself can make use of existing hAtom semantics  
for syndicated content.  That this will show up in feed readers is a  
secondary concern.
