And that's what make your thoughts an interesting read. Very well thought out and balanced.
When I write a review I change bits untill I'm sure I can still agree with it later.

Aah, I see. :wink: Well, I'm no fan of endless rewrites. I learnt over the years (also during my time at university) that the first version often is the best one, especially when you're trying to point out subjective views on art (be it music, theatre or movies). Everyone writes things differently and I seem to be an intuitive writer. Before I begin to swap sentences around I throw the whole piece of text away and start anew. 8)

I agree that the first intuition is the more exciting read, but personally I have found myself over reacting at times (probably due to the fact that I'm often 'comfortably drunk' when I write). And for one who's very economical with the sentences, I can't see myself starting all over again. That's why I copypasted parts (and edited it to fit) the questions by 24db for 40th anniversary. :oops:

Please carry on, MrC.

Mr. Cox, you reviews, as always, are excellent. Never, ever be afraid of expressing reviews on both sides. A good reviewer (as well as a good fan) holds their favorite band to high standards. It is unimportant whether or not Froese likes what you write. You just have to be honest and fair. It is so easy to spot writing that is nothing but positive. It becomes boring quite easily if someone has no ability to honest express what they do not like, or are incapable of finding fault.

Looking foward to reading more of your writing.

Ratty, I would love to read more reviews from you. The one you did on The Seven Letters From Tibet was very well done.
