Important: CD Reviews!

Recommended Posts

If you are posting formal lengthy reviews of CDs here on the board, please only post reviews that are YOU have written. Do not just copy and paste someone else's reviews without attribution. Reviewers work hard to write effective complete reviews, and to just paste them onto another site as if it were your own is not only majorly uncool, but is in effect committing fraud.


If you see a review that has content you feel would benefit the HH community, then small excerpts are fine, as long as you name the source and link to the original review at the top of the post.

Small excerpts? How do you define small? (Yeah yeah yeah...SHUT UP! ;) )


If I want to quote a review it should be unedited IMO.


I guess I'm guilty of not including links to the reviews and maybe quoting lengthy ones as well but in my defense I ALWAYS name the source. I'll include links from now on...


How 'bout press releases? Are they OK unedited?

Press releases are absolutely fine unedited, as those are intended to be redistributed from the start.


When someone goes through the effort, however, of penning a fullscale review, those usually are NOT intended for redistribution, especially when unattributed. It's like writing an article; copying it without revealing the source and passing it off as your own is plagiarism. It's original content created by the author.


I think that if you post a review prefaced with "This review was written by xxxx at LINK" that should cover all the bases.


In the most recent case in question, the poster made it appear that the review was his original content, which was not the case.

    • Oh, it's coming. And soon too. I believe somewhere around 7.5 billions years to go. I wonder if whatever life form is on the planet then will still be going on about Covid-19? 
    • I liked every album, with 6 keepers from each, except Wig Wamania which had 7.
    • TBH I'm kinda undecided. I come from a science background and I guess I look at these types of thinks in a less emotional way, based on facts. The fact is that pretty much every single country on Earth decided to handle the coronavirus the same way. Lockdowns, masks, isolations, etc, etc. Don't know of any that just said"this is just the flu" and moved on as normal. Doesn't make sense that every country was equally as gullible and poor at making rational decisions. Do to some degree, I tend to acknowledge the seriousness of the virus, and certainly dismiss those who say, "t's not that bad, don't be a pussy, and carry on"  
    • What the fuck? What is this? when is this going to happen? What a downer
    • Nothing to confirm an album is on the way but they have reunion dates next year and Frontiers used the tag ‘What’s next for Wig Wam? Stay tuned!’.. could mean anything of course but in my opinion this is the first single from a 2021 comeback album.. only time will tell.    I liked 2/3 tracks from Wall Street but I thought the rest was below average. This is up there with the best they’ve done in my eyes. 
    • Always loved the rock anthems they had. This song follows that direction and is a great opener for a reunion.  Did anybody actually say that there will be an album? I could imagine that this is only a single because they had some time during corona. Wall street was their worst album but it still had some good moments. This new song sounds as dark and serious as wall street but with the quality of early Wig Wam. 
    • Guess it shows the hiatus was needed.. Wall Street was a bad album, and I’m a fan of these guys.    I thought the same - I think they’ll still have a couple of ‘fun’ tracks just like Age’s solo stuff, Ammunition and previous Wig Wam albums but it looks like a more serious and less tongue-in-cheek direction.    Definitely looking forward to further info / music. 
    • For people without comorbidities, COVID-19 is not the apocalyptical virus the media makes it out to be. As recently as 3 weeks ago (I think?) the WHO reversed itself, now saying that societal lockdowns are NOT the answer. Great, we crippled the economy and destroyed peoples' jobs for what exactly? Protect/quarantine those in high risk groups, but open up society as a whole IMO. There's a certain segment that wants a 100.00% reliable solution or cure. It doesn't exist. It may NEVER exist. Tens of thousands of people die every year from just the flu and its side effects; we don't shut down the planet for it, and there isn't a 100% cure for it. The cure is proving worse than the disease... literally. P.S. At least here in the U.S., there is a large political component to how COVID-19 is being handled, with the motive of tilting the election. Democrat governors wanting to keep things locked down until after election day and then things will "magically" improve. Pelosi refusing to consider any aid package to the American people until after the election, regardless of how much the GOP is willing to negotiate. She's evil.
    • What are you a fucking idiot? what kind of a fucking bollocks statement is that mate, you must have your head so far up your ass, you can smell your own breath, never talk with that much sense G-Off, you cant let little things like reality and common sense get in the way of Covid, you should know that, now denounce your whiteness, apologize for your white privilege and say 10 hail marys, then we will forgive you.
