Don't be reluctant to voice your opinion or to water it down by reckoning that others might disagree or have other opinions. Just say it, make an obscene gesture to those who disagree, and then take another sip of beer. You go girl! I actually did Google translate the piece. The reviewer seems to like uptight metal from people who never smile. He shouldn't review anything else . . . same reason I don't review jazz singers.

I wanted to get a feel of what kind of reviews this guy actually writes, and stumbled upon the following (translated) piece in his Korpiklaani review:

"After "Beer Beer", "Vodka" and several other titles that are already involved directly on previous albums with the consumption of alcohol, now comes with "Tequila" an ode to the South African spirits."

This dude knows his stuff!

cheers,
wm_crash, the friendly hooligan

you know, at times itīs wiser to keep thoughts for oneself because certain areas in which you can work are smaller and tighter packed with connections that one might think at the beginning.
plus, the internet never forgets - what was once there, will always be there, somewhere.

but for my taste the reviewer shouldnīt have focussed on writing a "funny" tale about the album but more on describing the songs...

the writer has a great imagination, you have to give him that

anyway, every review is basically someone else's opinion on what they heard, so we can't expect everyone to like what we do or think it is great

but I found this German interview with Olli, I really liked it much so I think using google translator or other translation things wouldnīt be a waste of time:

I'm pretty sure this is a joke review but a 'review' (except not really) nonetheless

oh man, i didnīt evenr ead the review at first, maybe I should have o.O

the whole passage creeps me out:
Quote:
Some other songs are about the Byzantine Empire, the political fractions that existed by that time and how the Varangians fought on their side either to control the empire or against the Arabs. Maybe for the latter they have chosen them as the songs will surely be embraced by the neo-Nazis around the world. The whole thing is nothing but neo-Aryan fantasies of heroism and battle suitable to make kids rave-up for war.
I feel irritated somehow.
so let me summarize: the bandīs lyrics state that theyīre against Arabs and neo-nazis around the world will, because of this, like the songs very much and...okay, let me take a break and correct me if I am wrong or misinterpreting o.O

What's the negative historical connection between Arabs and (Neo)Nazi's to begin with? (sure, the Nazi's didn't think of 'em as "übermenschen" but there were Islamic Bosnian volunteers in the Waffen SS even! Not too mention that the Nazi's supported an anti-Zionist pre-WWII attempt to form an Arab (!) state of Palestine at the time, since both the hard-liner Arabs and the Nazi's didn't exactly like Jews)

I suggest this reviewer takes history-lessons. lol. Also, since Finns are an Uralic people, and thus not "Aryan" in the way Hitler meant it (since he thought of Slavonic people (ok, Finnic is close but still a tad different from Slavonic) to be almost as "low" as the Jews - this is all not my opinion mind you!). I find racial issues bullshit, personally, but it you want to use it as an argument you better know what the hell you're on about (and this reviewer clearly doesn't).

And what about the lyrics is anti-Arab, exactly? o_O

Sounds like *yet another* fucktard mixing up pride of your past and culture with narrow-mindedness and xenophobia...

Hey, that's me! Yeah, I loved the record. Just been going through the reviews here and am disappointed with 'em. But hopefully you guys will enjoy my review as much as I enjoyed the record (which is very much).

Well, yeah, they seem to be not as hot on the record as I certainly was. They also seem like they didn't give the album the kind of time it deserves to grow. Though, I could just be biased. If you read the review, which I assume you did, you'll see that I thought it was fairly questionable in the beginning as well. The flow wasn't as good; but like a lot of my favorite records, once I got into it it's excellent. It just takes time when a band is doing things that are a little unorthodox, and reviewers don't usually make that time.

So yeah, that's why. Oh, and the quality of the English reviews wasn't the best, either.
