First let me say that Steve Roach will always be one of my favorite artists in music. However, recently all that talk on his website, album descriptions etc., is starting to annoy me. It has annoyed me before, but it seems to be getting worse. It's so full of adjectives and hyperbole and it's not exactly modest either.
I understand that promotion is necessary and I appreciate the enthusiasm and effort that is put into these writings, but for "outsiders" these texts (which are copied by other sites) may actually be a big turn off. For a lot of people it may appear like a whole lot of new age bla bla.
Honestly, Steve, if you are reading this, I love your music, it means more to me than I can put into words, but when you or your associates talk about your music, I think a more humble and objective approach would serve your music better. Your music stands on its own. It doesn't need all those fancy words and descriptions.
