Personally I've no problem with anyone who wants to criticise or whatever, but Westway's style and methodology (that scoring system FFS :lol: :lol: :lol: ) just screams troll. I mean, "clumsy guitars" FFS. :lol: Surely he realises no-one is going to take that nonsense seriously. He's probably sitting there pissing himself.

There's a difference between having a different opinion and plain trolling. For example, elasticaman has been very lukewarm about the album, and has slated many songs. But he does it in a civil manner that allows me to sympathize with his views, even though I completely disagree with them.

Westway, on the other hand, has been acting like a troll from day one. His comments, remarks, his way of voicing his opinion are deliberate to evoke a reaction. He's an attention whore. For crying out loud, look at the title of this thread: DEFINITIVE MAGIC WHIP REVIEW! Yeah, right... :roll:

And the fact people are so hard at work debating on it means he's already won.

the funny thing is that my review is actually quite positive in many parts and the final score is not even a negative one

Thats funny!!! He knows almost no-one would consider his opinion the definitive last word hence the title. Made me laugh anyway...

Is Westway the same guy from the .co.uk forum who used to pretend to be Russian and call Hyde Park Hidepark and things like that?

He's So High wrote:Agree with all you guys about how great it is to be able to share the excitement of the new album, singles, tv performances etc. Already got some nice memories associated with the album. Having a terrible hangover on that Thursday (it was someone'e birthday the day before, I don't normally go for mid-week hangovers!), but seeing the rumours on Twitter that morning certainly gave me a wake up.

Then there was the slightly surreal Friday morning when TATMOU was suddenly released, and it was the same day as the eclipse; suffice to say a slightly hectic morning. Even on the Wednesday of the MODE streaming I had an unexpected delay in the evening so ended up running through the streets to get my train home on time :lol: .

Album hasn't even been released yet!
Wrong thread? ;)

No, this is the definitive review, right here:

It's not a bad album, but some parts are better than others. A lot of it drags on. If you love Blur, you'll love this. If not, this isn't going to change that. 6.5/10

Spot on. Not once have I thought "Good God, elasticaman is an awful dickhead." Not even when he said the Strokes are better than Blur. :P
But virtually everything Westway says is overly negative, clearly to provoke a reaction. He's a bellend.
