How come so many appear totally uninformed about a subject they are supposed to be experts on ?

It is the Guardian!!! Does anyone remember that dreadful review the Guardian gave Ultravox for RTE1? Where we wondered if he actually attended the gig?? Guy was a complete tosser!!!

And one publication referred to the "guitars on visions in blue?"

same question - different scene - how do these people get jobs......

They are not. I'm sure it was one of their reviewers who could not hear the difference between a synth and a guitar in ultravox's music......

highschool papers say they know EVERYTHING.......
