It is how I review, and I propose you take it into consideration.

You should know better, Syntrus >:(

Now the way I review is under attack I'm always polite and look for the positives. Unless I feel like I am under personal attack. in that case watch the fuck out for SYNTRUS's PMS.

@OP: I think if the minute technical details allow a greater expression of emotion, then they could be nitpicked upon, and possibly should. In my songs I'm always trying to aim for some sort of expression, as to me that's what music is; another form of artistic expression just like the visual and written arts (paintings, movies, poetry, etc).

I like the way in which you say you review things. Glad to see there are still people that'll lend a helping hand from time to time.

I agree, but only the other way around, being that the emotion determines the amount of technical detail.

The only way to discern if there's too much detail is if it clouds the emotional appeal.

Are you not the same guy that started to cry, and you had to intoxicate yourself just because you recieved a review with a score of "7" with the main criticism being your track was overly repetitive? lol...

there is a saying that goes - "that was the most brilliantly produced soulless piece of garbage I have ever listened to."

Actually it was a five.

Well after actually reading Erkies news post I liked his review style. I'm Just PMS ing

I even left him a review in my style which is in a slightly more psychotic style. But I still say if you want to be an ass hole in your reviews go for it providing you follow the rules. Just keep in mind that people will remember you for what you say about their music. And they have a right to bitch if they feel you did not represent their music well. What really starts to get annoying is when they create spammy alts that wiggle around and type things on you. Audio artists that create alts to diss the competition or the nerd or whatever should go fuck themselves. Be a man (or woman) and review the song yourself.

Summary

Syntrus like erkies review policy, but thinks assholes should be assholes, providing they have good enough reason to do so. Said assholes should eat the consequences of their remarks and take it.Randy Jackson Says:" If you want to be a simon cowl or something prepare to get some Simon Cowl American Idol grade A bull shit. Dawg."

It wouldn't be the first time Mr. Angry mod wanted to shove the ban hammer up my ass. But I realize what you are all thinking.

Cool, you got the point. That's awesome.

I should add that after some discussion I should state I'm more lax when it comes to technical details, it's simply putting the emotional value first.
