I like to think that we're a mature fanbase capable of accepting criticism and responding to it in an intellectual way. I agree that attacking Sweetman's weight or personal life only makes us look bad. He's a critic and he likes to rile people up with his reviews. That's his shtick and he's good at it. I mean, sure it's just his personal opinion, but that's all reviews ever are, and while I don't always agree with his assessments, he has made some good points and provoked some interesting discussions from time to time.
So maybe he thinks some Tim Finn albums stink. Hey, who doesn't? It's nothing to cry over. There is no artist who can win over every critic.
