  • DoofusWainwright Sounds like a plan, I came really late to Joni Mitchell but that album lives up to the hype. If you write the review I'll check that one by her next. 'Candy-O' the incentive is getting your name up early on the 'Albums Needing a Review 2017' list - there is no higher honour on Sputnik.com

  • DoofusWainwright I've had a few people say they agree with that Dylan description!

  • Jeffrulesyou I hear ya! There's a lot of classic albums on here that haven't been touched by any reviews. Keep em' coming I'll gladly check out your reviews for those great albums.

  • DoofusWainwright You loaded up all the albums by The Partridge Famiy - this sounds like grounds for you winning user of the year right there, stellar work. I was thinking of putting up the entire back catalogue of legendary Chinese singer Wing...

  • DoofusWainwright Listening to 1's isn't torture, it's hilarious. Plus for bad albums I usually only listen to a few full songs then scan listen the rest. I think 100% is impossible since they closed the 0.5 ratings other than for reviews. Otherwise maybe I need a few more 5s to improve my variance :/

  • TwigTW They have been on my list of bands to see since forever, and they did not disappoint... I will look for Shatner's "GKW". I'm sure it's a Christmas treat.

  • Jeffrulesyou Haven't listened to it yet, but I'm going to give it a spin. I'll check out your review when its ready of course! Kudos

  • DoofusWainwright No, just pure vanity ;D

  • DoofusWainwright The vocals are hilarious introspective crybaby Smiths style meets total goth groan. The music has some charm and strangely some of that charm then rubs off on the vox. Still poor overall though

  • DoofusWainwright I might be wrong, but I've just noticed how it's changed over time with my ratings. I've upped how many 1's and 5's I have proportionally over time and the objectivity got a lot higher
    November 29 01:05 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I'd say if you dished out twenty extra 1's and say ten more 1.5's you could painlessly increase your objectivity by 5%
    November 29 12:21 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Not 100% but I think you have to have as even a number of all rating values as possible, though if you are going to have more at any ratings they should be in the 2.5-3 bracket ideally. I think it might now be impossible to get 100% as users used to be able to use 0.5 ratings and now can't unless they request one for a review....so unless you review an equal proportion of 0.5's you're doomed to lower your objectivity. That's my guess anyway :D
    November 29 12:17 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Keep rec'ing me 1's - I need to keep my objectivity up in the high 90%s

  • DoofusWainwright Thanks for turning me on to the Dexiest album of 2016
    November 29 03:55 AM
  • e210013 I know that. What I wanted to say, sorry but English isn't my first language, is that when I review "Aqualung" we will be finally with the same opinion about the quality of a Tull's album, almost with the same rating. With the other two, we were in opposite fields.
    November 28 07:09 PM
  • SandwichBubble Hey no worries. I won't blast you too hard for it ;) And yeah, relistening to albums is a joy. Sometimes those albums can be goldmines (few of my 5s are previous 2.5 and unders). Not saying that's true for the new Dexy's, but you know: here's hoping!
    November 28 02:16 PM
  • SandwichBubble That's true I suppose. There is a degree of overlap (and I do like a lot of what you've rated/reviewed), but sometimes I just don't know about u. This Island a 3? Unacceptable lol :)
    November 28 01:46 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Ha, just saw the Enya beat 'Tallica comment. Perfect, what a match up.
    November 21 04:30 PM
  • TwigTW Sounds interesting, I'm always surprised by what bands I find missing from Sputnik. Especially local Boston bands that I thought were fairly well known--but I guess not, lol. Keep up the good work.
    November 20 09:03 AM
  • TwigTW Now that's dedication!
    November 19 02:08 PM
  • TwigTW It didn't look like you got an answer to your jpeg size question in the meds thread. The short answer is if you get your image from Amazon.com it is always a jpeg and the right size, but 200 - 300 pixels for the longest side is what they are looking for (and always works).

  • DoofusWainwright Well I really like Therapy?...but they're Northern Irish so I won't even get into that argument.
    November 19 03:47 AM
  • DoofusWainwright Diva I know Enya, I couldn't have gotten to this ripe old age without listening to a bit of her new age chuff. Never sat down through a whole album before...not sure if I felt I really needed to listen to a whole album of Enya in the one sitting by the end of it :D As a rec it sorta falls in the middle, enjoyable but not really my thing.
    November 18 03:51 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I feel like I'm really kickin' you where it hurts with these recs - I apologise. All I can say is I haven't rated too many recs that highly this round
    November 2 02:23 PM
  • DoofusWainwright Listened to it this morning - way too much cheese for breakfast
    November 2 02:12 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I'm sorry buddy, just not my thing at all - I like my punk girls a bit more scrotty, like the chick from Be Your Own Pet
    November 1 03:01 PM
  • TwigTW Yeah, I Skipped the Tales From Topographic Oceans show too. The Close To The Edge and Fragile shows were great tho, and they did some Heaven And Earth songs that year too--sounded better live than on the album.
    October 27 07:04 PM
  • TwigTW The show was great. I prefer Howe to Rabin too, but it really was an Anderson/Wakeman show. There were only three Rabin era songs. When they played ?Awaken? it was like Rabin wasn?t even there, lol. Here?s the setlist: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/arw/2016/wang-theatre-boston-ma-2bfd4cae.html . Have you seen Yes recently? It was interesting to compare Anderson to his replacement in Yes. Similar voices, but Anderson is a showman in a way his replacement never will be.

  • Storm In A Teacup nah lol they've been in my top 10 bands for the last 22 years or so. just now bothering to check out their last 6 or 7 records and asked him for recs on what to do but he says just go by songs so I started with the whole Magnetic album instead

    October 18 02:29 PM
  • DoofusWainwright I couldn't really get over the American Irish accent
