First let me say that I really love your paper. It is quite informative, and the News of the Weird just plain rules. It’s just this one review from last week that bothers me (City Lights, 6/21). I see nothing wrong with someone not liking a particular band, but I see something wrong with a writer knowing before he sees a band that he isn’t going to like it. David Daley already knew that he didn’t like John Flansburgh, so obviously he wasn’t going to like Mono Puff. I just think it would have been better to send an unbiased reviewer. Maybe you can have a totally pro-Puff review to go along with the anti-Puff one. If not, well at least I tried. Thanks for listening.
