OK, so aarfanaardvark has just posted a missive on Spiritualized's 'Amazing Grace'. I wondered if this was following in the footsteps of the ELP Trilogy review - i.e. a review that disses an album rather than praises it.

I don't think these types of reviews have a place on Unsung. Sure, as part of appraising an artist's work it may be necessary to diss certain releases etc., but surely not the one you're reviewing. The web is full of reviews of shit albums. I'm going to delete the Spiritualized one immediately (and no, not cos of any Spiritualized/Cope connections, conspiracy theorists) and will therefore probably be deleting the ELP one too but thought I'd give you advance warning in case anyone wanted to keep a copy etc. I realise this will cause a bit of a stir but I hope you see the reasoning.

It seems to me that the definition of what constitutes an 'Unsung' review seems a little clarification in light of recent (and not so recent) posts so I'll work on getting that together. There's also a whole load of clearly bogus & easily-defined as NOT Unsung reviews that are getting through so it's probably time for a bit of tidy-out.
