i just stumbled upon this review http://www.stylusmagazine.com/reviews/mclusky/do-dallas.htm
wtf were they thinking?
I think a few years after this Stylus did a re-evauation piece basically saying the reviewer was wrong.
Funnily, this re-evaluation is pretty apologetic.
"It's a fun album" always strikes me as "I like it but I admit it's a little bit backwards and actually lacks quite a lot of the artistic merit in a way that usually causes me to lay into album of its ilk".
Maybe the re-reviewer was just being über-diplomatic.
http://www.stylusmagazine.com/reviews/mclusky/the-difference-between-me-and-you-is-im-not-on-fire.htm starts with fulsome praise for Do Dallas and then slags off that album.
that reviewer is so wrong...
a "critic" wrote a review fans don't agree with. I'll phone the credential police
I sensed the dire urgency and telegraphed it in as soon as I could
