'..it is part of a larger whole which includes (naturally) interpretation and technical address but must also encompass recording quality, presentation, "rarity",value for moneyí.
I think itís an opinion of a very qualified and reputable music reviewer.
I also totally agree with you and ĎMr. Byzantioní when you suggest that if you (reader) do not enjoy the reviewing style of a particular writer or find their views do not chime with your own - ignore them!
However, I would add that the same way itís usually applied by qualified and professional reviewers before writing a new review: if they donít know the pieces of a CD, they havenít properly heard them and they havenít studied the meaning of the pieces and authors, they donít write the review only for doing a large number of reviews (on the contrary, Iíd add that itíd be physically impossible if they donít copy other reviews).
I find itíd result little reputable and professional especially if the reviewer hides himself behind a pseudonym (or only behind the name without surname as Byzantion does).
