Hey,
Go to Amazon and mark "Chubby's" review as unhelpful! This guy has obviously not even listened to the CD.
Here's the link

Leave a positive review while you're there.



Thank You, Nature Boy, for pointing this out. Yeah, it looks like someone has a personal beef with me. What b.s. to state I was doing it for the money:

"What a waste of Tiki cash from the so called 'Tiki God'..... guess when the mortgage comes due you got to due something. Look for this CD in a discount bin in the near future."

This unspecific review is obviously just aimed to bring my rating down. Someone did that years ago with the BOT too, but was soon overwhelmed by 5 star reviews. Please folks do that here too, we authors are otherwise defenseless against such ill will.

I am not saying my work is unassailable, I appreciate intelligent criticism, but this is simply internet sabotage with nothing to say.

Thank you Vamp and John, your posts filled it up half a star. Thanks John for pointing out all the aspects why a one star rating just does not make sense. Please post some more reviews, folks, and the malevolent machinations of some grudge-bearing envyer will be foiled. It's as easy as posting on Tiki Central!

Thanks to another nice review by Tom, SOT has inched another half star towards its old status.
C'mon, who's got in them to spent a few minutes to give whoever hides themselves behind that false I.D as "Chubby" the finger, and help The Sound of Tiki back on track?

It's got a good beat and it's easy to dance to. GROG give it 7.5.

I think Chubby may have thought it was gonna be filled with Buffett tunes or something and was a little sore.
And come on, if BB wanted to rake in piles of cash, he'd pick another genre other than exotica. Either that or he'd a gotten Justin Bieber for the CD cover and had him doing a version of Cockeyed Mayor of Kaunakakai or something on it somewhere...

Thank You everybody for their reviews. Though I have no idea who Justin Bieber is, I don't think "Chubby" expected anything, nor did he really listen to or read the booklet. He is some sorry individual somewhere who was solely bent on posting a one star rating to bring down the 5 Star one the CD was at. After 7 five star ratings it should sort of become obvious that ONE one star rating is not an honest critique, but Tiki Tea-Party-ism.

I would not make such a fuss about this, but I want my label to be successful with this CD so they will let me do the next one (which so far, they will). Bear Family is not that well known in the U.S., and I won't let some malevolent crank mess with the impression they make here.

Should "Chubby" GROG change GROG' review then?

P.S. GROG not really "Chubby". GROG just "big-boned".

Whatever it is, it would be nice if Grog could possibly make some productive contribution here, other than just fooling around.

Put my review in. Not too eloquent, but it made my point.
