Taking a long break and taking criticism

Now during January and a little bit of February of this year, I will be taking a long break from album reviews because of school next week. And from last year and this year and course 2010, I have posted reviews from King Crimson, Queen and now Jethro Tull, and I've received some criticism (yep, think about someone throwing a bottle of pickles at you at a concert and saying, "You Suck!") from some of the comments who think they are unreadable.

Now I'm not doing this for the money, nor getting famous, nor being a celebrity, I write reviews because I enjoy it.

And yes, some of my reviews are impossible to read and some are unreadable. Now am I one of the best writers ever? No. This is where you draw a line in the sand, yes there will be drawing a line in the sand on some who have mixed opinions on the blog site, and some would say some nasty comments about the reviews.

Now I've been doing reviews since 2008 and I knew that doing the reviews for those three bands and the reissues, I knew that I would be in the crossfire for writing about the reissues about them. And you know what? I would shrug it off.

Now am I going to stop writing album reviews based on Progressive Rock and Symphonic Metal? No, there is no stop sign for me (criticism is welcome), Now, do I have any regrets starting a blog about writing reviews on Progressive Rock? No.

And for me, I don't take it personally, I just keep going like a train chugging 400 miles per hour.

I will keep writing them, until the day I die.
