Basically these are the same people who write these blogs, and regurgetate exactly what they've read elsewhere without even giving the music a chance.

If you go to a caspa show, its generally very busy full of people going mental. Is it really a crime to help people have fun as part of your job?

It seems he gets a lot of stick on here and on other blogs and sites purely because he is not "cool" in the blogosphere.
This

and it seems yet again the grammar and phrase police start baring down on all those who's english may not be up to their "high" standards. Please get over yourselves :roll:
...same thing that Grime kinda took down...

But we've reached a stage now where we seem to be having a discussion about a discussion over an article that discusses how much discussion there was about someone's album, that album was itself called Everybody's Talking, Nobody's Listening... classic.
This is the right answer.
There it is.

caspas audience are not the kind of people to read a blog of that sort so i don't see what real harm it's done

if anything i think simon reynolds is preaching to the converted so it's kinda pointless

yes

I don't mean he's trying to convert people..i'm saying that his readership is likely to agree with him.....i read the whol article hence feel qualified to read it...the only bits i diagreed with were what he said about mala, loefah & plastician but tbh this may just be his experience that he heard them playing a lot of hyp tunes...

Agree with him on what? That the only time dubstep sounds distinctive is on wobble tunes? That was the central point on the sound as a whole. He basically wrote off the other parts of the sound as derivative.
