Complaining about Opera News

Once again I am complaining about something in Opera News which arrived in my mail yesterday.  There is a review of the recent disk featuring Aleksandra Kurzak. The reviewer goes on and on about about the expected choruses that are left out and the other singers one might have expected to hear. He talks about which versions of the ornaments are used. In short he talks about what a great genius he is and tells us nothing about whether we should buy the recording--the purpose of writing reviews. Is she any good? We won't know from anything in Opera News.
