I actually (just now) checked the reviewer info and I see that they are still active.  Review is
7 years old so I wasn't sure...

I have no idea what review specifically you are referring to (a link to the review would be nice). Plus, I have no idea what track you are referring to (a name of the track and the album it's on would be nice as well).

You can send a PM to that person in which you can suggest the correction. You click on the author's username, which will take you to his collaborator page, and click on "Send Private Message (forum)".

Thanks for the replies.
I didn't reference the song or disc as I don't want to raise a stink or rock the boat,
as I tried to convey.  I will try a private message but, of course, I have no idea if that
could have a similar, negative effect.
 
Forgive me.  Only other similar type of forum I've posted out was a sports gambling one
(15-year membership, and this site--much more appropriate--is only my second, as
mentioned).  This other site sometimes gets mud-slinging nonsense going and I'm trying
to avoid the same.  I'm a rookie.
 
Don't worry...my skin isn't that thin.
Love the site and want to make it even better, if possible.
Reason I love it is because some of the reviews have encouraged me to hear some
previously unknown great music.  If I can do similar reviews that provide other people
with the same then maybe the world will become slightly better because of it.
 
InstrupsychedeMelodramatic, perhaps.

I wonder what Atavachron smokes. His latest reviews look like he found somewhere a good amount of strongest grass. Hope he have not shot the sheriff yet. Smile

I think it was brilliant! Also made sense to me coming in the wake of his other Schulze reviews, all of em with a distinct esoteric, and slightly tongue-in-cheek, writing style. Hell my own review of Blackdance is weird, maybe it's just the album itself that leads to madness?

Btw I moved your post to 'reviews discussion' instead. Didn't seem like you were looking for an admin to ban his ass for being momentarily crazy and verbose

^ Thanks for moving my post, even if I'm not a fan of such kinky reviews, I don't need the guy's blood at all. Smile

I found your reviews outstanding, and wish I could write like you! So many reviews are stale and formulaic, forgetting that music is an art form, and therefore likely to elicit all sorts of different reactions. Kudos to David for thinking (and writing) outside the boxClap.

I would think not, a tetrahedron even harder. I hope people don't imitate you, though, as I don't know if it would be good for this to be the shape of things to come.

However, I have to admit I had my reservations over his WYWH review when he first showed it to me mainly because it would never go with pasta. 
What?

Thank god you said something, I thought I'd quite pissed you off.  I figured Floyd + cooking = Dean but then realized you'd just as likely hate it.

^ Sorry David, I'm currently on Jury Service so don't get to spend as long online as I normally do so some correspondences have been unfortunately overlooked - apologies.
