The negative review topic sounds really interesting. It always bugs me when reviewers clearly go into an album with bias and the write - up is just an attempt to slam the artist rather than critique the art.

Every review is written with bias. Every single one

Well yeah, but isn't the point to try and hide that bias and review whatever is you're writing about with as much objectivity as possible? I know that almost never happens, but in a perfect world...

I guess I should correct myself and clarify that I meant in circumstances where the writer seems to be writing about a group they have little interest in or downright can't stand.

"Trying to write objectively" is futile and will never happen when it comes to criticism of music. It's about presenting your opinions and backing them up with examples. I don't think anyone would deny that reviews are just opinions, so why try being objective about it?

Fair enough, we'll just pretend I never said anything.
