More than a review it's the band's bio written by a former member. I think we may use it to update the band's page. Of course it's not a review.

I'm not very skilled in French but I think I can translate it.

Hi gen77c
I honestly don't see any harm in band's getting fans or friends to join and to register on a new site, in this case PA in order to write a positive review for the band. Heck I wish more bands would do/ask others to that too! It's hard enough to get people just to click the like button never mind going through the whole thing of registering, password etc, thus kudos for the bands who actually get fans to register and vote lol Also I don't think anyone should judge what a fan (even a friend) writes as their personal opinion on their review, most people who actually go through all this trouble to write a review are sincere and music aficionados, they have made an effort to write a review, described why they liked/enjoyed the album. I honestly think we should neuter people's enthusiasm, the benefit in this is far more reaching really.
All this said, there are bands (very tiny margin) that instead of working on positive ratings, their fans or supporters go as far as to score them high and their current opponents/popular bands on purpose low, ok this is wrong and this I agree it’s spiteful, sneaky and wrong.

Here's why

Shouldn't matter though, I heard it and it was pretty meh, so rating will inevitably go down a bit

This review does not fit with the rating given for that album.
http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1140164
The review is enthusiastic, the rating is only one star. Perhaps a mistake or a misunderstanding about how the rating system  works.

Why does it say in the review that the album gets 4 1/2 stars, but it shows only 1 star? Confused http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1140164

I don't have a problem with minor grammatical errors, but this one is downright incomprehensible at times.
You are not wrong and the errors in the review are prominent such as calling queens song for bottomed girls!


hehehehe fat bottomed girls and bicycle race are the best poppy tracks lololol especially considering/knowing that google would probably sensor or ban their vids hihihi

Scott!!!
To be honest, this review is not conventional terms of what I perceive one should be.    Scott, this review is not worth feeling upset about, considering that he doesn't seem very articulate here, in my view. From what he wrote, one would become clueless after reading this review as to not having any idea how this album possibly could sound and feels like
I don't necessary think he attacked anyone in person perse, however putting myself in his shoes judging by his communicative skills, I would rather just voice my opinion instead of imposing it   

P.S. I like DT a lot, (with and even without Portnoy). Yes the lead singer at times when he sings live you have to cringe because you expect at some point there will come an out of tune sound/singing however he is magic too!


If it might be any consolation to you, this review will not have any affect whatsoever on DT, it's a tiny drop in the oceans thus insignificant.
I tend to feel more protective over new and "struggling" artists trying to share their music, these people I tend to really feel bad for them when they get a negative review especially if it is none constructive which makes me want to listen to them to see if they really are deserving of 1 or 2 stars and most times this not the case it happens a lot unfortunately. I guess, hope and believe no matter what, in the end good moozik and talent will always prevail.

those kind of reviews are the perfect example of a subjective point of view of someone who want express his feelings or lack of feelings toward a album. I don't mind those kind of reviews, but it doesn't tell me if i am going to like this album and also if this album is good, And if the title says "Calm down lads"!... it's a sarcasm attack against a group of people and show that this review can't be take seriously...

Thats Ok... thats the way i see it. Its not a major attack but I  just thought reviewers were not allowed to mention other reviewers opinions. its not the first time he has done this either. Anyway, let it go and hopefully other reviews from him will improve.
