I've been sending a note to these type of reviewers now and again and expressing condolensces for their musical ignorance and the pain the must experience from it. Usually only reserved for someone who rates 1000 albums or so and gives 90% of them 1 or 2 stars. I love those Metallica albums but to feel offended is to express that i actually give a flying BLEEP what a musical illerate reviewer thinks Clown



They are probably best ignored. People like that tend to rather get off on the attention that their "thoughts" produce.

Exactly. Part of not coming off as an elite club of snobs is to accept these things as personal freedom of expression. With no logical arguments to support their views, they are obviously only excercing the childish method of contradictory shock and awe rather than offering up a valid statement. Just for the record, i don't care about ratings and reviews but have send a few notes to those who clearly engage in ratings abuse by carpet bombing with one stars who show a pattern of never even listening to a particular band's canon.

Thanks, Tapfret! If you love Gorguts and other disturbing harsh tech death metal then this is surprisingly addictive. That word was proven by Nazi scientists to lure prey into their traps before they sprang on them the big nasty. This album is the perfect pastime of audio assault possible ;0

I am no fan of Metallica's inclusion, but those three reviews are nothing more than indictment of fans of the band and those that decided they should be included. They are quite delete worthy.


Reading those reviews set me off man. It was like someone was bad mouthing my family behind my back.

Struck a nerve. The reviewer made waves of anger in me. I couldn't laugh about it because it was so underhanded and cheap.

^ omg Michael. I totally agree. There is a strong difference between being insightfully critical and being hyperbolically negative. I hate Poito guy's reviews. They are so cheap on creative insight and I find them to be flat out verbal sewage that permeates mediocrity.

My condolences as well.

I Googled "modfok" (which we all are in the eyes of death metallers, apparently) and came back with this.

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Yep, 11 times "mellotron" in the text of his review, twice combined with "storm" Geek.
 

LOL Come on I love that saying that the "mellotron storms" in depsite it coming across as lame given it's my handle on here.Wacko
Lets see, any mellotron albums to review this weekend? Sadly no!Big smile 
Oh, I'm about to review that new band Weserbergland that has Froislie on it, the mellotron man in Wobbler, but sadly he's just adding synths and clavinet.

Thanks old friend! I find that MitG just seems to get better over the years. I can't say that about too many other albums. Except TAAB. Wink

And yes Sam it really is, give it a try on bandcamp.

It's so good seeing you back reviewing Sagi, have you checked out THE TANGENT's new one? Hopefully you'll jump back in here more often but I know life can be so busy.
No John, actually I'm not a fan of The Tangent, I listened to them a few times but nothing really grabbed me...
I read your review, so I will be checking out the album when it gets to utube.

Oops sorry Sagi I'm mixing you up with someone else. 
Hey I was really interested in that Pinguin album after Damo's review, now Silly Puppy reviews it and I'm drooling at this point. An obscure Krautrock album from the early seventies that few know about, sounds really good.
