And now we also have a review....

Pretty decent review, he states what he likes and what not from the album, giving some detailed comments about songs. Nothing wrong here.

I retract my complaint.  I do not agree with a 1 star review just because someone does not like the label or genre.

Dean my fav grumpy and Ivan one of my ultimate fav collabs ever, both so honest and at times cannot seem to agree with each other hahaha this is fun to watch read hihihihi ok back to topic, different views, however none of them compromise nor do they work or are in any way related to the likes of rolling stone magazine and other prog/rock magazines, nothing has nor will influence them and their views, they both work hard here and only for the love of music, this site is very fair also due to both of them, (many collabs are grumpy, but once you realize they are sweet, you'll love them) their honestly at times might not be appreciated but they are so fair and to me I think they are true and most awesome! Really! Thanks to them ProgArchives gives a fair chance to prog music beyond the music industry and corporate suits, once you get over their sincere, honest wit you really appreciate them even more!

If we thought our members were dumb enough to require such a disclaimer before allowing them to submit a review, we would be bullies. Pinch

Well, common sense applieS to young and older people.

We can't make a penal code for everything, the rules are clear

NO ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES

We can't guess if anybody has a legally released album before reviewing it, but we can delete the reviews of non released albums if we have reasons to believe it has been obtained by illegal methods.

You don't need a rule, just common sense and showing you care for the site enough to avoid problems.
