This review does not fit with the rating given for that album.

The review is enthusiastic, the rating is only one star. Perhaps a mistake or a misunderstanding about how the rating system  works.

So all of a sudden,Perfect Beigns is the most popular album, number one album in 2014 and three of the four five star reviews are from members with no other reviews or ratings, one of them even says he's not a prog rock fan... suspiiiiiicious....

All of ratings are from unique IPs, so unless the artist is asking his buddies to come and rate it, which is possible, there's nothing fishy going on that I can change.

Anyway, it has 15 ratings. As the year goes on albums are going to start to bump it out of the way.

Here's why

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

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 itís spiteful, sneaky and wrong.
Another hug to you

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.
