XX-rated: gloom merchants fail to shine at Somerset House


This is a really awful review, what does this review actually tell me!!?? I could imagine this reviewer missed the show and has had to write this piece knowing nothing about the concert but the set list. Really upset i missed this show i've heard it was incredible

Every comment welcome as long as it is well expressed and without abusive language so, Jo, I've removed your contribution to the debate. Ismene (administrator)

I was at this concert and it was undoubtably received incredibly well and rightfully so, it was spectacular. i thought it was unanimous, but clearly not!!?? were you really there? considering their age or not, this was a hugely triumphant show which any musician of any caliber should be proud of.

I think the commenters are maybe missing the point of the review which is that it is the writer's OPINION. Perhaps they might (ahem) prefer TheArtsDesk's previous report from a gig by The xx?
