"quite rightly" ???
What gives people the impression that they can "quite rightly" whinge about an artistic product? If they don't like it then they should deal with it, or do they have some sort of privileged that means they should dictate when an artist does something?
If we are talking about some drug junkie screw-up ala Nacht Mysticism not delivering "product" people have actually paid for that's one thing and can be considered "quite rightly" being pissed off but people saying "I don't like that, why are you not doing something better that I like?!?!", just fuck off with that shit.

By the way Indub, I wasn't implying that you were guilty of this...I just see this becoming more and more of a thing which is another reason I don't have a FB account...I am a big fan of Buckethead's guitar playing and I recently went on some forum and all it was was just people saying "Buckethead should make another album that sounds like so and so" and "Buckethead should go back to sounding like he did on fill in the fucking blank"...and it's just so annoying...artists can't be swayed by the public and their fucking fan based needs...might as well just stop doing it altogether if that becomes your impetus for creating art...
I see Opeth get this treatment all the time and they aren't the only ones...regardless of what you think about Opeth,(love them,hate them or indifferent)you gotta give it up to Mikael...the guy gets constantly bombarded with shit from fans wanting the band to return to the old death metal vocal days...he doesn't bow to the pressure and continues to go in his new prog-influenced direction...I find that admirable in a day when so many "artists" are so easily swayed by public opinion...many whose enitre manufactured career's are based on just that...
