I like his music,  very easy listening and very interesting throughout his albums.   Need to get one more album if I can before his 2018 release.  Wink

Thanks for your thoughts, guys. I only thought to mention it again because Vitaly, the composer, had contacted me thanking me for my positive reviews over the years, and explained that he'd had issues with some rival musicians, most from where he lives.

His music has definitely improved over the most recent discs, I certainly wish others weren't so nasty and scathing in their instant mark-down of it.

Anyway, just wanted to assure you it wasn't a reaction because of it flying in the face of my own positive/higher ratings. My ego isn't that fragile, and my d*ck sure ain't that small!

Say what you want about his sort of music if you don't dig the modern symphonic thing but it's clear as day and completely obvious that something is not right there.

^^^  It's a shame really,  don't quite understand people's tastes here!..  Think this artist is very easy listening and quite interesting.  He throws a mix bag of various styles, but nothing unpleasant..  Will need to check out his other releases.. Smile

^^Checked all the albums and ratings from Sunrise Auranaut and none of them have an account with a duplicate IP. Seeing also how the ratings are also separated by months or even years apart, I'm inclined to leave it alone for now, rather than thinking there is some trolling rampage going on.

I can't speak for the motivations or legitimacy of any of the listed raters, but my sampling of the youtube material found some rather cringe-worthy stuff. The compositions are certainly well intended. Unfortunately the execution leaves much to be desired. Wonky drums and guitar playing that seems out of place. Most of what I heard felt 2 star-ish. There are only 20 or so ratings for each album. With PA's scoring system, if a collab writes one more 4-star review for each, they immediately become 3+ overall. That would be generous IMHO.
There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Sunrise Auranaut  

What a great artist and worth checking out!  folks!!!!Wink

I'm surprised by these lows scores!!  Shocked



Some nasty music rivals trying to cause problems is what it is, sadly, Noni. And they likely haven't heard a second of his music.

Glad you like what you heard! Let Vitaly know you like his music on his Sunrise Auranaut Facebook page, I'm sure he'd appreciate it!   

I only have his debut and 2016 album so far.   Smile

Looks like he's up over 8,600 now with 8,148 being 5 stars.  Didn't realize we had that many 5 star albums on the site!  Ermm


All those five stars, yet Ash Ra Tempel, Pawn Hearts, and In Extremis only get four LOL

And I feel really bad for the one group deemed worthy of a one star...

Thanks for at least looking into it.

Hey team, can something please be done about this? I've mentioned it before so not sure if it's new issues or just more added on to the initial complaint, but it's pretty obvious this is ALL the same person creating endless accounts.

http://www.progarchives.com/album-reviews.asp?id=53090

In fact, it is rife throughout ALL of his albums, and really not fair at all.
Well understood, I suppose they would be manipulators from the similar place but cannot be really sure ... Unhappy

Will keep an eye upon this issue.

Oh, I've had a few. 4.5 star album, someone comes on, anonymously posts two stars, bu88ers off without a comment. Perhaps I've upset them on the forum. 

Then again, so what ? ;-)

I'd like to request that no one is allowed to rate anything without putting their name to a review and their reasons for the rating. No name, no review, no vote.

It's not that much work since he joined in 2011 and his one star rating was for a 2016 album.   Quick rating takes very little time, especially when, as he seems to, you rate lots of albums by a band at a time. Splitting hairs, but that is not the correct number, though. He has a total of 6559 ratings. He has one 1 star, one 2 star, two 3 stars, and over 300 4 star ratings. Still, that's over 6000 of those which are 5 stars by my rough estimate.

The reason I noticed he rated an album I like with one star. Free salamander........
