Done and done. Got the gig to write a review of TIS for the Classic Rock Society, and also the Nashville event. I have ordered a thesaurus.

Thanks! We need more Amazon reviews!!!

Use big, important sounding words when describing GH. I learned the word 'hyperbole' recently from reading about GH reviews on progressiveears. :lol: Use public humiliation as an opportunity to learn new words - that's what I always say! 8)

Amazon sales have been pretty steady until today when a new review appeared with some reasonable criticism of the album. Don't know if there is a connection - but the sales number took a dive from around 1,300 to 26,000 - TODAY! So, maybe there is a connection?If anyone could submit another positive review, it would help keep GH alive and kicking for another year. We would sure appreciate it! I know that some of you already have - thanks!

If you are browsing these reviews remember to click yes if you found a review helpful. Nice review by the way "sooperted".

Waitaminit--a number that increases is considered a dive?? Is that how Amazon works?

Amazon's ranking system

Post by Boromir » Tue Sep 06, 2005 2:42 pm

Yeah John,

That number does not reflect sales, but rather a ranking, or a sort of chart position. (Think Billboard's Top 100 Album Chart) Therefore it does represent a significant tumble.
