Hey Melodic Lover! Cool post buddy! (Especially the shout-out to me at the end!) ;)
Anyway, I totally agree with you! I think people who offer their opinion on CDs should listen to the album at least 4 or 5 times before making a statement. When I bought the Flesh and Blood "Blues For Daze" CD a couple years ago, I was expecting a Tyketto CD! Well, suffice to say, I was disappointed at first. After I stopped wanting to hear "Strength in Numbers Part 2", I began truly enjoying the CD for what it was. Had I passed judgement after one listen, I'm sure my words would have been negative.

Secondly, people have got to start making better comparisons. Last month, for example, someone compared White Heat to Blvd. Blvd is quite a bit lighter (more west-coast sounding) than White Heat. I think a lot of people make lazy comparisons out there. Bands are guilty of it too. Didn't Neal Schon say the new Journey CD was supposed to be their "rock" record. Of the "Van Halen 3" CD, Eddie said it was the album he's been wanting to make all along. Or the silliest thing I've ever heard... coming from David Lee Roth (surprise!), who said the reason his "Crazy From the Heat" album was an EP was because most albums only have 4 good songs anyway, so he just omitted the crap!

How many times have I heard a band say their new CD is "the best thing they've ever done?" or "a return to the old sound" only to purchase it and learn otherwise?
