London Town
Review of Where is the best city view? by Jarisleif

Advantages: London
Disadvantages: None

As many of you know, I am a Brit who lives in the United States. Every year for our holiday my wife and I don't go to exotic places like Cancun, Mali or Barbabos. Instead, we, or more specifically I, come home to the United Kingdom to visit family and fri ... Read review

Bureaucracy is the Answer
Review of Member Feedback on the Ciao Abuse System by 1st2thebar

Advantages: Overall, a very positive place to be
Disadvantages: Irks and gripes, just like in real life

When I read of webmaster ‘abuse systems’ they’re really acting as the internal judge and jury; I immediately yearn for the common man’s sense – also called common sense. Regrettably common sense differs greatly per se so it makes sense to assume that memb ... Read review

Loophole or abuse?

Advantages: Some clever folks beat the system
Disadvantages: Some folks think the system's being abused

Not what was I expecting but topic this you have clearly lighted upon a form of abuse which we all seem to agree is extremely annoying and devalues Ciao. by Pointress
I don't get where the feedback on using the abuse system features in this review? I was hoping for a nice piece on using the abuse reporting system. How to use it, how member got on, if they were revenge rated as a result and so on... by LiveMusicLoverLyn

Review of Everything that starts with T ... by sharper_fin

Advantages: They perform live music that you want to hear
Disadvantages: They're not "the real thing"

The rock group Queen have just (Nov 2014) announced a UK tour. I quite like the idea of seeing them, having loved their music for most of my life, so I asked around a few friends to see what they thought of the idea. I was surprised at the negative reacti ... Read review

A very interesting analysis. I think we have a natural craving for authenticity and somehow the first way we hear something sets a standard that all others have to match or mimic - even if the later versions are technically better we may not like them as much because they are not what was embedded in our brains. Music tends to embed itself in our brains in a way that any subsequent performance that is different tends to sound somehow wrong. The example you give of Genesis is an interesting one as I am one of those people that loved the old Peter Gabriel fronted Genesis and as far as I am concerned they were no longer really Genesis when he left - and though a talented performer in his own right Phil Collins could never reproduce the Gabriel magic for me (perhaps that is why Gabriel took his kids to the tribute - maybe they adhered to the original format better). But then again, as you say, classical music is all covers. But that is because nobody alive could have ever heard the original performances so there is no yardstick to measure by. by buzios

CAFE AVEC LE FROTH! - Corner Cafe, Broad Lane, Tottenham
Review of Essays by DrHarryBird

Advantages: Cheap and Friendly
Disadvantages: Dodgy music choice!

Happy to re-rate. I think what my confreres below meant is that you have posted this under 'Essays', which is fine in its way but will earn you no pennies from Ciao. If you have suggested the Corner Cafe as a 'product' in own right, and if Ciao had so listed it, and if you'd posted it there, it would have done. Don't worry, the ways of Ciao are passing strange at first, but do make sense when you get accustomed to them. Cheers, Duncan by torr
