Ian, John (and anyone else who I hope may come along and help with the links): please don't feel that you ever have to give into desperation if there aren't many reviews one day :)


Yuck, that Independent page is really horrible: couldn't they have found an extra inch not to squeeze the review into, and made it even more unreadable? Horrid.

Alison: The Indy is not necessarily the worst, but I am certainly finding that a number of the Dance frontpages (ie those from which we find the individual items posted here ) have become very complex and slow to respond, presumably on account of the variety of content now put onto then, especially when there are big video inserts or highly complex ads.
