i like how this review uses very vivid descriptions and interesting terminology
to tell as little as possible about the actual music
and make some of the most awkward sentences i've ever seen

Mark - if you're going to post an album review for the world to see, spell-check wouldn't kill you. There are so many flaws in this review it's not even funny.

This is a bad sentence. It's not "always discussed." I would change that to "often" - even that's not true, though.

Is are Green Day the greatest band in the World?
Is are?
Quote:
Well with the evidence of there 'GROUNDBREAKING MASTERPIECE' American Idiot album they well damn could be.
You need to use "their", not "there". And I think you mean "they damn well could be," not "they well damn could be."

Quote:
'The Anti American' contingent serve up a truly masterful array of songs that dig deep into portal of instrumental music.
I'm not going to even challenge the use "portal of instrumental music," though it makes no sense. What I will take issue with is your statement that Green Day are anti-American. I have a feeling they wouldn't agree with you. Do you even know what the album is about? It's about G.W. Bush (the American Idiot) and his fear-mongering via post-9/11 hysteria. It's anti-Bush, not anti-American.

Quote:
With the opening beat of hysteria of American Idiot to the mellow softening of Wake Me Up When September Ends.
Need grammar check here and I wouldn't use "mellow softening" it's kind of a redundant adjective.

Quote:
The vocal talent and writing from 'MUSICAL WIZARD' Billy Joe Armstrong are explioted to the full extreme of musical 'paramount'.
Need spellcheck, and you need to use "is" instead of "are".

There are too many errors in the rest of your review to go into.
This was a good effort - next time read over your review a few times to eliminate the errors, use spell-check and grammar check.

Aside from that, I do agree with you. I don't believe Green Day is one of the best bands of all time, but I do think American Idiot is one of the best albums of all time.

I don't think there was any need for grammar Nazism. He was writing on a message board, not for a magazine or college debating society.

Sorry you have been relegated to the subs bench. You can win back my undying affection by posting about your new found love of Reggae in the Reggae section!
