Cool, so why not write up a review to that effect and submit it? If it's well written I'll publish it alongside Aidan's. Eoghan.
I think you should definitely put that line about Doolittle in there

i would agree with the review. i would probably have given them another "point" however. i believe the immediate will develop and get better, and look forward to future releases by them. i don't subscribe to the notion that if you don't like the album you are in some way "not getting it" or "not into the art of it" or whatever. also a brave move by the reviewer, i'm sure he realised that his review would get negative reaction from some quarters.

West Brit, generally used to describe people who have sympathies towards Britain. In the Sindo sense, probably refers to their anti SF stance and their perceived fixation on D4. Either way Egan is a joke

Egan is beyond parody. Has anyone else noticed his disturbing obsession with 'Ireland's Most Famous Lawyer' Gerald Kean? Sick.

tis a sorry state of affairs, the amount of vitriol emanating from the various hacks in that paper is frightening, equally though the amount of obsequieous almost incestuous articles is almost as disturbing the rot started when journalists began bast*rdising their christian names - 'aingeala'? 'oonagh'?! pass the sick bag

"it says alot about modern ireland and young ireland" I don't know any 'young people' who buy the SIndo. It think it's mainly people who have always bought it out of habit. It's a legacy kind of thing I think. People will always stick to something they're used to, whether it declines or improves in quality is irrelevant really.

You mean THE Gerald Kean, Lawyer to the stars, society lawyer, legal eagle star, celebirty lawyer etc. They have all been used to describe him in the past. I for one cannot wait for the next installment. I love Glenda though, Ireland's only model. Would've agreed with you Una a few months ago that people buy it out of habit but in recent times and through various conversations, seems a lot of young people are buying it. Crazy.

that's just weird nerraw. I have to say, it's the only Sunday paper (minus the tabs) that I don't buy.

It is, tres weird. I don't buy it myself and no-one I know buys it but just in recent months I've heard the dreaded words of the sindo and read, numerous times. You don't buy the tabs? Snob ;)

I think the sindo are blatantly trying to hit the new "rich twenty-thirty somethings who watch bb but not q&a"......quite honestly there is very little opinion in it at all....no substance..christ even the tabs have opinion in their sports section...... ok, that "o2" team piece for instance,...that was a stunt to reign in the women of ireland who are in their twenties,5000 words on the link between big brother and modern-post-modern-feminism whatsit.... usually accompanied by a pic of four birds wearing belts on dollymount strand.... To accompany Brendan O'Connor's rise to fame in rte lets start sticking him on the front page of the paper...with a diary no less at the back of the magazine... I get the papers for free in work so i see all this, i used to buy the sindo, for gene kerrigan primarily though...even he's lost his soul of late.... business section is good.

true i suppose, but i think the business section of the sindo is the only part of the paper worth a s**te, and if we could go back to the thread topic here, a review like aidans would never feature or be written by lynch or uugghhhhh.....egan.....the immediate would probably not feature there either...unless one of them married a corr or played at the wedding of a double barrel namer.....
