I would like to thank dougmcauliffe for the first review of a King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard album, Flying Microtonal Banana.
 
I would like to comment that "Open Water" is my favourite track from that album.
 
 
 
I was thinking about thinking but it really didn't get me very far.

I would like to thank BrufordFreak for his review of the new Tirill release.  Well written, and perfectly describes the music that I sought out because of the review.

I'd like to thank Exit the Lemming for ALL of his reviews, because they're so well-written and they're great entertainment too. They never fail to put a smile on my face. Smile

Thanks for the review on These Trails Greg
It’s an old fave of mine but I haven’t spun it in years. So nice to have someone pat you on the back ‘hey there - remember this??’

Ahh nuts this probably means that I need to give serious thought into actually doing a review over the phone

^ Absolutely! These Trails is one of those wonderful one off psychedelic folk rock albums that was so common in the early seventies, but this one is a gem and it's good to see a fine review of it. (Even if Greg doesn't really fancy doing them.)
 
I also liked friso's Death review. For someone who claims not to be an expert on tech/extreme metal, all I can say is that he could of fooled me. Another great review. And Silly Puppy has been killing it with his Therion reviews.

Thanks David and Steve; much appreciated. Glad it got you to think about that album again. It was a quickly-written review (I spend much more time writing many posts). I was just checking something regarding the bio (that took me much longer to write) and remembered that I had said that I planned to review it soon after the addition. I generally prefer dialectic to review writing, but writing reviews has sometimes been an enjoyable experience. I wrote some for a show called The Prisoner a few years before joining this site, which were a lot of work, but ended up being quite fun as I enjoyed peppering in some silly, and none-too subtle sexual innuendo. Maybe I should try a TOOL album next.

EDIT: What was a pain with the review, while it took me little time to write, I spent ages battling Captcha to get it up, then needed to make a correction, and spent far too long doing that as Captcha blocked me again and again.   I spent way longer dealing with Captcha than writing the review. I had decided at one time just to delete it, but Captcha wouldn't allow me to do that either, because it was late and I was so exasperated. Eventually I got my edit in (I should write reviews off site then copy/paste them) I could have tried a different device, but I tried all sorts of different browsers, deleting the cache....

You are right.  Copy/paste is pretty much the only sure fire way to do a review.

It's the same with me too. I always write my album reviews out using my laptop Notepad and then copy and paste it into the PA review box, and then there's no risk of losing three hours work if the PA web-page times-out on me  when I click on "Submit".

I copied my review before hitting submit, but even if I get time-outs, I can backtrack with my browser and my work is still there most of the time (that is how I did it yesterday). I once did lose an essay length review here, which might have been my magnum opus. I figure I could write better reviews if I used Word, then paste it here, and there'd be less chance to need to edit them, and so less chance of having to battle Captcha (since it's not the first time it has blocked me, yesterday the Captchas were extremely problematic for me -- that happens now and then for me). Had I pre-typed the review(off site using my Word processor program), I might have just said, I'll just try again tomorrow and not spent over an hour fighting Captcha. Yes, one should always copy beforehand in case. Sometimes with this site, I really wish to minimise page navigation as much as possible because Captcha proves a problems across browsers every time I try to load a new PA page, reload, submit something etc.

I got a kick out of reading stevoz review of 90125 (which I will forever confuse with the TV show 90210!) as saying he is sick of "armchair critics" dissing the album and not realizing that by posting his review he has become one!
 
I highly enjoyed Evolver's Kansas reviews as I'm not familiar with the ins and outs of this American prog band and especially VienaProghead's extensive Golden Earing review, after being surprised that they were included here.

A shout out to sgtpepper for his very balanced critiques and ratings on his string of Hackett reviews. Good job old boy!

Thank you, Nickie! That album hit me like a ton of bricks! I am glad to see my review (and Mike/Aussie-Byrd-Brother's) are helping to bring awareness to this little gem. The vocal and string performances are what really wow me with Said the Sun to the Moon. Check it out, everybody! A real beauty.
