Yeah, it does that because it's an instrumental. However, I disagree with you flaming people for not liking your music taste. If they can back their opinion well, it really doesn't matter.

Example of not how to do a review when you don't fit into the status quo:

It's not that I'd be flaming someone for "not liking my music taste," it's that especially on the inflated scale most reviewers on AP.net review by, a 57% for this album would require some sort of major disconnect by the listener from what's actually on the disk, or them just saying "HURR THIS MUSIC IS BORING," which is something that I would be completely OK flaming someone for. If someone reviewing this album thinks that it's boring, then maybe they shouldn't be reviewing drone records.

True. I remember reading this review for Alcest's Souvenirs... and they were upset because it wasn't black metal, and they said the shoegaze aspects of it were boring.
