Post your worst reviewed music

How about this…

Yeah, I encountered that one too. Hilarious, isn’t it? :joy:

I couldn’t figure out how to fit the review on one screen, but here’s one of the more savage ones I’ve seen:


Ah, Danzig (to be fair, this recording is embarrassingly bad):

Same reviewer?

Chailly proves once again that Mahler is a composer of irredeemable vulgarity.

His endless opening “Kraftig” has dumb tones and stupid marches.

Hi @Ian_Murphy,

that’s DEFINITELY one of the worst reviews I’ve ever read!!! A case of irredeemable brainlessness…

Rostropovich should have kept to making cheese.

Just came across Rolf Lislevand in TIDAL’s new Classical releases, and then found this stinker of a review for one of his earlier efforts…

I rather enjoyed reading it :grinning: It makes me want to listen to Scott’s music to see if I will agree with the view (and I suspect I will).

I don’t know what Debussy, Elgar and Strauss thought of these particular pieces but generally they liked Scott. Must admit that unlike this reviewer, the English Edwardians are a guilty pleasure for me!

Wow. Allmusic seems to have no rule about writing under the influence. :sunglasses:
I’ve a chamber album of Scott in the library, also released by Chandos, which got a rather favourable review so there’s at least diversity of opinion in place.

Flapdoodle. Twice!

Ok, How useless is this review? Answers please…

Bear in mind, it’s in MQA and on Tidal now.

It’s a release specific review that we’ve applied to the whole album (erroneously). Apologies for that; however, It’s already fixed in code that’s currently in test.

Pretty damning review that ends with:

A lightly played, lightly sung, lightly recorded Missa Solemnis: if that’s what one wants in a Missa Solemnis, here it is.

It’s quite disgraceful (literally) that we can’t block this nonsense from appearing on our Roon displays.
