First of all, there was no "typo" in the star count. It's called an opinion, not an error.

Second, the quoted statement above is nuts, because it is an impossible ideal. I receive upwards of a dozen albums per week to review. Many of them are for films that aren't going to be released for another month. What the hell am I supposed to do with all of those albums? Sit on them? Spend $60 a week watching all of the films? When would I have time to actually write the review?

I have a hard time believing that people like you guys would actually prefer that I write nothing about all of these albums... Of course it's beneficial to see the films, but it's just not possible.

It's a ridiculous misunderstanding about how things work, and it's a stupid argument to use against the reviews.
