Suddenly about 100 new 5-star ratings for the whirlwind from day old accounts with randomly generated user names/names/locations. All of them giving 5-stars to the whirlwind and no other rating. Happens pretty much the same time the user HelloYes, another 1-day account that rates only the whirlwind, reviews the album.

Why go to all this bother just to push up one transatlantic album by about a 20th of a star?

Edit: This was my favourite fake account: 5 stars Birdemic (Alan Bagh) LOL

I'll take care of those in a min. The album leaked, so that's what they're from.

Cynic's new (and as yet unreleased, to my knowledge) album has 16 ratings already.

Senmuth case is a bit different. The guy is nuts and its his 150th album or so. Is available to download on his website. Why is a 2014 release? No idea, but thats what he says in his website.

Guys, another 'attack'.

The 'new' not-even-a-single-released Mike Oldfield has already a 1 star rate by a guy named Eyefire Confused

I wonder how many folks rate an album without even hearing the darn thing ?? The audacity of some people........
.....or, "I'm just listening to this album for the FIRST time, I'm up to the fourth track only, but I know it's a masterpiece " I recall reading the odd review along these lines......
