mgolia6 Compared to the narratives of the previous reviews, this felt rushed. Started to go heavy on the music towards the beginning but then the writing fell off and seemed never to recover.

The energy of the narrator seemed to be a slogged down by the end of the review and what creative juices were motivating them clearly dissipated into the ether.

Question: what’s up with the Fluffhead critique. At that point it felt like you just phoned it in.

I am not going to get angry or bash the narrator, just a little shocked that with the level of review lately, we had to settle for what amounted to dribble towards the end.

I’ll add that the similarities abound in song selection from 09 run and this run. I counted almost a dozen of the same songs played and the Mikes “wolfie” sandwich being eerily similar on paper. I was motivated to write about some of that and might under the show review. But the wind got knocked out of me from this gut punch of a review. How the actual execution of what they maybe wanted to do in 09 was actually executed on here in 22.

Anyhoo, applaud the willingness to put yourself on display. Maybe just a little more effort next time. IMHO.
