"So yeah, fuck you, Tony Iommi."

Just read the 'review' of Black Sabbaths' '13'. Everybody their own opinion but this little story by droneriot (and that name says it all in a way) is so far off and disrespectful that I decided to dig in.

The review was uploaded on June 10th. The album was released on that day. So how much spins did he gave the album? And write a review instantly? Or did he (or she) download the album in a shitty quality a week earlier so he (or she) could have the time to compose this atrocity of a review? You tell me.

And then this: "Do NOT write stuff, in the lineup or additional notes fields or anywhere else, that promotes or bashes the band in question!", a line from the official rules. So in that light; how on earth is this review allowed on MA when the opening sentence/remark is in that review?

Read and weep...and I mean actually weep. The dumbest review I ever read;

I already replied to the identical thread in the Reviews Subforum, so I'm just gonna close this one.

The moral of this story is suck it up and don't throw a fit and cite irrelevant rules when somebody's opinion is different from yours.
