Diamond's In The Rough?

Check out poor Erik Pedersen's review Here!
Looks like Erik had to be dragged kicking, screaming and crying to review a Neil Diamond concert(and get paid for it)!
You can tell by his review that he doesn't like Neil Diamond and therefore there was nothing that Neil was going to be able to do to please him. Neil could stand on stage and poop gold for everyone in the audience and Erik would still be upset that he sang "Forever in Blue Jeans"(which by the way Erik is a good song).
I understand that Neil Diamond is in the twilight of his career,(even though he sold enough tickets for four shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles) and an acquired taste, and it's probably true that some of the songs don't have the same ummph as they used to. But he has a loyal following (Barry Manilow fans are the same way), and will be out and selling out even if Neil goes on stage in a walker or wheel chair.
The concert may not have been good, but Erik's bias going into it, made his review worse.
