- As a fan, I get/got weary of some progressive rock bands being slagged off, especially on progressive rock boards. It is as if some people think their hackneyed remarks are unleashed on the world with sparkling originality. There should be a measure of respect, as I do not, for example, visit indie sites and criticise Radiohead and Muse.

It's just my opinion . . .
I'm not sure I understand how the concept of spoilers applies to music conversation.

Spoiler is the wrong word and I'm trying to think of the right one.
