I don't object  the absence of the "praise" (as you say) in ProgolateCookies's review but I objected the absence of the constructive critics. Merely healthy criticism which is very important to every beginner that helps them to grow. This item is the real goal  of your  prog-rock "fraternity", is not it ?
I am not here to ague...
There is nothing wrong with the review. Reviewers are not obligated to offer constructive criticism (ie free advice). If you want advice don't read reviews.

No we do not permit - this thread is for reporting reviews that break the rules, not for showing us videos you like. If you want to do that, find another thread.

Some of these have to be the same person:





I would say this Jose has no fewer than eight accounts with us (and thus thousands upon thousands of ratings).

His ratings are manipulative rubbish, too. One of the profiles is "five stars to complete discography of  the bands I love, one star to all albums of the bands I dislike". His "latan" profile contains 882 ratings, and 862 of these are five stars!LOL

People don't have a better job to do than just compulsively click on the little stars literally thousands of times?Wacko

The first is in Spain, the rest are in Brazil - all the Brazilians are the same guy no question. Only problem is I'm getting "Server 500" errors whenever I try deleting the reviews.

Same here. :(

And I don't think we can get his IP unless he posts in the forum.

I hope you guys do something about that brazilian guy soon because others have begun to rate one star to the albums he inflated and if you remove all his accounts the one star ratings will remain and we'll still have the same problem of false ratings...

Four more accounts:



Not sure why he's varying up the ratings.  Still, why hasn't his IP been blocked?

You mean this guy goes from place to place, creates new email accounts, then creates new PA accounts, and then has time to dish out all these ratings?
