Ha ha. I wasn't speaking specifically! ;-)

I don;t actually now remember what Richard wrote in his review. But, as I
said, from such a distance, I'd rather get a general idea of what a piece is
about than read about specific niggles (at least, not _until_ I had a general
idea). It'd be a bit like me describing the curvature of markings _before_
mentioning that I'm talking about the trunk of the squiggly-bark tree.
(That may not be its correct name -- something like that -- but it exists!)
You wouldn't have a clue.
