Maybe cause the site rules are in English. Hmm....

I can understand Spanish, and thought it was a good review too.

I read it translated by either Bing, or Google Translate, and it did make perfect sense and was nearly free from the  idiosyncrasies, typical for online automated translations.

This guy 'Tubes' is on the move again. This review is nothing but an attempt to lower the GG rating. Please please please delete this user's account on progarchive.

hmm, he's making quite an effort to explain his poor ratings, and there is plenty I agree with him on.  He does seem rather focused on bringing ratings down for overrated albums, but perhaps somebody should tell him they don't have much effect on overall ratings when they come from a non-collaborator or reviewer.  I still don't think it rises to the level where he should be banned.  I have read much worse, much less informative, reviews that we don't consider banning just because they happen to agree with fans of the group.

So Epignosis is obviously a respected and established reviewer here, but I really don't think this is a valid review:


I don't see how being personally unused to a style of music's sound or aesthetic is enough to give it 1 star.  There is very little objective analysis in the review, and most of it is spent saying how he doesn't like the band's distorted sound.  For bands in the RIO/Avant-Garde category, surely a "distorted" or "weird" sound is not enough to give an album 1 star.  You can hate an album because of that, but you're not actually evaluating the music on the album if you only talk about how "noisy" it is.  From reading it, it seems as if his opion was made up during the first song.  

It's a shame because the band is virtually unknown, so their album rating is at 2.82 stars because of this one rating, while 75% of the ratings are for 4 or 5 stars.

I'm not opposed to the current system.  I think it makes sense and works well overall. 

In this specific situation, the album's rating is significantly lower than if collab reviews were weighted the same as non-collab, and it's unlikely that the album will ever reach the point of "balancing out".  It's unfortunate, but not cause for any type of change based on that alone.  However, I don't feel that the review justifies its rating.

^ I don't considered Jean Louis as "virtually unknown" band, on the contradictory. There is in my opinion much following for them, 180351 profile views today in myspace .

Their first album has 48 ratings for 4.52 average score, and the second mentioned here 12 ratings making 2.82, rounding up as three stars. Does this current state at ProgArchives after all worsen their situation in the world?

Very lovely people, though I did not personally dig their music very much. Made them some food at the club I helped to create when they visited Finland on their 2010 tour: www.progarchives.com/video.asp?id=3097

But hey...It's his honest opinion.

Robert and I have different musical tastes.but he's always honest, I remember when I rated HIS album lower than the resto of the Collaborators, he sent me a kind message saying he respected my opinion even if he didn't shared it.

If he says he doesn't like it, i believe he's giving his 100% honest opinion and he's entitled to it.

Nice to agree with Ivan for a change.

This is clearly an honest, well written opinion. Also, think about it. If you were reading reviews for this artist, you would see a range of opinions. Looking closely at Robert's tastes after exploring more closely, you would realise this was not his cup of tea. You would also find that others, who might like this type of music, gave it a good rating. You would, therefore, make an opinion on whether to buy based upon this.

Robert's review is a good and honest one. He does not like it. He thinks it is a "noise". Knowing his tastes as I do, and agreeing with them, I would not get this album. Others would disagree, and would buy based upon others opinion.

It is the way the site works, and, by and large, this part of it works well.

Completely inappropriate and useless comment about the cooperation between Wilson and Ackerfeld: "Then came Storm Corrosion, a project he made with his possible homosexual lover Mikael Adkerfeldt."
