By all means they should be confident about their own work, but not ruthlessly putting other musicians down for their own personal hang-ups. It comes across as either hugely arrogant, or putting down the competition to make his own efforts look more appealing.

I think it's a goddamn disgrace.
Regretfully, Michael, I've researched manipulator(s) again and found he/she/they might have hyped UNREAL CITY's "Il Paese Del Tramonto" mainly via multiple Italian IPs.

Done completely. Ermm

"near 5 stars....4,5....because they have done better things...but I loves this one too."
 
Ummm...I don't think I've ever rated an album 4.5 stars when all I can work up to say from a complimentary standpoint was that the album is "very nice and well elaborated", "very pleasant to listen [to]", and a "pleasant work". Damning with faint praise and then insisting there are better albums is not something I would do while rating an album that highly.
 
But perhaps it is simply a matter of someone with a limited grasp of the English language, and therefore forgivable up to a point. So I will not bother to look at the other approximately 250 reviews the person has posted, and annoy myself further.

Hi, many many rating manipulators have come from Italy, and I'm afraid if their ratings would be kicked away when they get suspended. Unhappy

This makes no sense whatsoever or are you sure you've posted a link to the right review? 


He posted the right one, because I read it at the time of the post and it had these confusing connections, apparently bogdan (the reviewer) read it also and made the appropriate corrections...case closed.

The 5 star rating manipulation still annoys me, I hope someone will delete one of those reviews.  

The newest review has been nuked.

Thinking about it, this should be PA's slogan.


Nah, a better slogan would be: telling it like it was since 2004
