I have a question of this — First review of this album — considering the list of unreviewed albums: it naturally SHOULD come when there is no written reviews but some ratings, right? (and such albums should be on that list too)? 
   For example FAMILY's Anyway wasn't on the list; it has ratings without reviews only. (Then again, ANTHONY PHILLIPS' Harvest of The Heart was on the list, with one RTR.) Both are albums I might review in the near future.

Correct Matti, I think [email protected] is still sorting a few things out there.

Eetu, I think the actual album is listed twice, once under each artist. As far as the database is concerned, they are therefore two different albums.

Erik -

Well obviously this Family album review of mine is one of those that has been lost in the 71 missing ones, then in the recent modifications

Other thinking about the subject: Those wishing for a band to be introduced , should also maybe review the albums >> what I' ve done for most of the groups I entered in the database

This is valid for people like me or Dick or those adament on a band's  inclusion, but maybe not for the BAT team, which is trying to get rid of the backlog

Avestin: How do you think one gets good in reviewing others than writing reviews>>> practice makes perfect (or at least pretty good in my case)

Hugues,

Rest assured, none have been lost, they will still be on the database. The issue is probably that they are not being shown on the album page. Have you checked your list of reviews on your collaborator page to see if it's still there?

Well that's encouraging news for all of us. Hughes, have you ever thought of giving up the day job and going into professional reviewing?

I noticed that at Amazon you can review the reviews! It says things like 3 out of 5 people found this review helpful.

Joe Bloggs - 5 stars - a masterpiece of a reviewer.

Micky Mouse - 1 star - for reviewer completionists only.

I think there's a problem because the review names shown are now the forum names and not the names that were originally given with the reviews. My reviews didn't show up until I added my email address into my forum details so that there was a correspondence between my old reviews and my forum name.

Bob, the reviewer names are now taken from the forum. This is part of the move to requiring reviewers to log in using their forum ID before posting reviews. The forum IDs have been identified by linking the e-mail addresses given by reviewers with those in their forum IDs.

The forum name is now shown as the reviewer, with the "real name" from the forum settings added in brackets. You can of course make your "real name" in the forum details anything you wish it to be.

http://www.progarchives.com/?reviewer=ivansfr0st - Here's an example of the countrary - my reviews for Death's Leprosy and Ulver's Metamorphosis appear on their respective album pages but don't appear in my review histoire.

You can see that I, indeed, posted them here as a proof: http://www.progarchives.com/Progressive_rock_discography_CD. asp?cd_id=10821

Ivan,

Under the new system, the reviewer name is no longer recorded in the database, just the e-mail address. The reviewer name shown for reviews is picked up virtually from the forum profile "real name".

The effect of this is that queries such as http://www.progarchives.com/?reviewer=ivansfr0st  will only work for reviews submitted before the changes were implemented. [email protected] is looking at a replacement facility which will allow reviewers to see all their reviews, but that is presently work in progress.

Hope that explanation is clear, but let me know if it needs to be clarified further.Wink

Hugues,

I have checked all your reviews, and there is no review for "Anyway". There are reviews for the first three Family albums only. This is not therefore one of the "missing" ones, as there is no rating only for this one from you either.

Thanks for your encouragement. I thikn I'll practice offline for a while and write some, and when I feel they are good I'll upload them here.

For the time being, I'll continue my low-level review/recommendations in my thread "I Recommend..." - It allows me to practice a little bit, before the real thing.

THe problem is that I am a (bit) of a perfectionist. And I have these certain standards of reviews I want to achieve, and if I don't feel I did that, I can feel comfortable with sharing it - you know, mentality problems. I hope this gets resolved soon .

You're not the only one, I can't say I am satisfied with even one of my reviews either.

Oh, and thanks Bob, I understand that well.

there is a review of Erik Neuteboom of the Biglietto per l'Inferno selt titled album that refers to the Live 74 album; now this is included in the Archives, so that review can be moved to be the first review posted for the live album!!

Two commentaries:

While I read this list, I discovered that:

The "Moment of Truth" album recorded by ELO part II is listed twice, one as part of ELO`s discography (with Jeff Lynne, which it wasn`t recorded with him),

http://www.progarchives.com/Progressive_rock_discography_CD. asp?cd_id=10552

 as released in 1994. In the scan of the cover, one can read that it says "ELO part II". The same album is correctly listed as part of  "ELO part II, post- ELO") as released in 1995. I think that the corect release date was 1994. Both have the same scan of the cover. I can`t write a review for this album because I don`t have it.

The Alan Parsons`album "The Very Best of Live" is listed twice in the Progarchives Discography, which is correct, because there were two releases of this album: the European (with only live tracks, released in 1994)  and the U.S. version (released in 1995 with the same  live tracks but in different order,  plus 3 new songs: "When", "Take the Money and Run" and "You`re the Voice"). The problem with this album is that the titles are in the wrong order: the U.S. version is classified as the "Europa Version" and the "Europa Version" is classified as the U.S. version. I wrote a long time ago a review for the U.S. version classified in Progarchives as the "Europa version". I forgot then to write to Progarchives`Aministrators about these mistakes!

 

P.D. I`m going to post these commentaries   in the "Errors/Omissions Forum" too (with outside soruces references).

Part of the problem is that some bands have only two or three (if not less) Prog albums and 10 non related, so people usually won't rate them in a Prog place.

Maybe addition of determined albums related to Prog should be allowed.
