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.

Your loss. I blocked him long ago. This is the first time I'm replying to one his posts/threads.

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

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?

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.
