^Please explain better, you have reviews for both the CD and DVD version. Which version should be deleted?

Hi, posted a review in the wrong place - David Gilmour Live In Pompeii DVD. It should be, an is, under the CD album category. Just wondered if this DVD review might be deleted please. It is after all, inappropriate.

Cheers

The person admits he hasn't heard the album, so I don't think it is useful to the readers.


"EELA CRAIG was already history for a few years by the time "Hit or Miss" came out", and now that review is history too (at last at PA, it still exists at the rateyourmusic site). That's a review from the early days of the site, and they often weren't as good as we found in later years. Thanks for the heads-up.

That Barney review actually just caused me to go and listen to Neal Morse for the first - and almost certainly last - time. The kind of hammy, overly-emotive crooning he seems to go in for is pure kryptonite to me. Filed under 'Similitude of a Bucket o' sh*te' before I got as far as taking in the lyrics.

This site is littered with mindless rants disguised as reviews. Why the sudden outrage for a Neal Morse review? So what if he finds the preaching offensive? Nobody seems too upset when Deathspell Omega gets a lazy review Evil Smile

This is not a REAL review - just mad at religious content.  Recommend the 1-star rating be removed.

Well, where do I start? Neil Morse - says - "I want to preach about my born-again xtian god-delusion, again". "H'm haven't you done that to death already?" says a.n. other - "I'll tell you what - I will base the concept on a well known xtian allegorical tale - Bunyan's The Pilgrims Progress!". "I wouldn't call it that - it won't sell - give it a proggy name". "Good idea" muses Morse, "I'll call it 'The similitude of a dream' - How's that?" "OK"...... Well , I listened to CD1 and the lyrics didn't twist my melon until - "Breath of Angels" - I had to turn it off immediately! I gave it a second chance - and got as far as CD2 - before his preaching got to me again. The musicianship is awesome , the prog music equally the best around at the moment. - Oy! Morse why didn't you include an edition with an instrumental CD for me to enjoy? I'm afraid his narration, is of a man, - sick of earthly delights - realises that real life only happens when you're dead but has no actual proof that this is the case - just his smug - I KNOW!!! YOU FOOLS! attitude. Well he would have got more interest from me - if he has told a tale about a similarly deluded pilgrim, wandering about Manchester with a bomb in his back-pack for 2.5 hours before taking 22 men, women and children with him into oblivion because "HE KNOWS" that he will get 36 virgins in his city in the sky. Neil - give it a rest!

Sorry mate I read my post back and it was not supposed to be a dig on people getting offended - I certainly didn't perceive your original post that way.
I still think he was trying to get a rise out of Christians by ridicule. That sort of thing almost always falls flat when it's done in such a crass way. I do not think any group of people are above criticism - good or bad - but there is a way of pointing out flaws to folks you're not in agreement WITHOUT pissing on them in the process. I learned that the hard way whilst simultaneously establishing a far beter relationship with my grandmother who is both into the big g.o.d. as well as the sonic disease called Hansi Hinterseer.
I love her and think she is a wonderful human being...but absolutely do not agree with her philosophical views or taste in music. I used to take stabs at her in my youth - mostly because I thought she'd come around and see the error of her ways, but soon realised that it was me who was in the "wrong".

It doesn't OFFEND me, Dave (I can't talk for some of the others that have discussed it, but I don't think they'd be any different)...I don't think it offends even one person that reads it, but I'm pretty sure there'd be a consistent `What a sad unhappy ranting b*****d' response. Probably not the `I am going to BLOW SOME MINDS' reaction hoped for in the first place. Where's that `yawn' emoticon gone?!

I sure don't read it and spray my drink all over the screen in outrage exclaiming `What what WHAT?! HOW DARE HE!!!!!' in theatrical overdramatic fashion!

Heh...and to think that I actually defended his "approach" back when he did a similar review of Transatlantic's Kaleidoscope. Sure very shortly after, in this very thread, it became evident that Barney indeed was running a crusade on his own. Sorta like the old man down on the pub who after a few pints starts bitching and moaning about whatever downfalls of this day and age.
Now I am certainly not a big fan of any organised religion, but still, in my short experience on this earth I have still learned a) you will never discourage or enlighten anyone on line nor will you ever get them to rethink their ways and b) a music site is peobably a poor soapbox to stand on if you're about to do a vile rant on religion. It can be done and done gracefully and with respect...this one though falls short of just about everything bar it's obvious intention: get a rise out of Christians.

^Actually, he buried this line.."The musicianship is awesome , the prog music equally the best around at the moment". Therefore 1 star for Jesus-ing it up a bit too much?
Perhaps it's a bit of homage. Jesus did some of the most progressive work at the time and still got crucified.

But yeah, the music should probably get more of the review content.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

So we've been at this exact same point a few times before, but do we really need yet ANOTHER dreary, angry, hateful atheist rant pretending to be a CD review from Barney?

http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1742316

It's not that I (and a few others I've heard from) think the guy's an idiot, but he just can't help himself with these vicious rants, which also spill over into so many of his posts no matter how unrelated. Seriously, he should be able to find a million other sites on the web to voice his thoughts on his subject of choice, but we don't need it on a music website.

Oh, and in my case, it's not that I'm offended because I'm Christian with what he says, it's that it's an ugly, boring and abusive rant in general, and, worse, for an album review, doesn't actually discuss ANY OF THE MUSIC at all!

You're right, what a foolish review, and most certainly he copied/pasted directly the mail received from newprogreleases.blogspot.com without no extra contribution - such people is incredible !!!!
