This is a comments thread about Blog Post: My Vintage Selection for 2010, Part 2 by Thomas Rucki

Intrada is much too shy and conformistic in its editorial line and always falls for spineless 1980’s mainstream music—1980's music is the equivalent of grape juice for wine—owing to low economical reasons of accountant.

First things first. Your sentence structure is abysmal and the latter portion doesn't even make sense. Is "conformistic" even a word?!

But more importantly...

That is quite an insult to Intrada, don't you think? You rant and rave about their 70's releases in your other articles, heaping praise on their work. And then in one (embarrassingly formed) sentence you paint their editorial decisions as "spineless" and make allusions to greed playing a role?

I certainly don't worship every Intrada release, but some amount of respect is due, no? By my quick count, they released far more pre-80's scores than 80's scores in 2010, which makes your argument even more insulting and, more importantly, invalid.

Shame on you for not thinking this through before writing it and shame on your editors for publishing it.

It's an OPINION. He's entitled to have it. Doesn't necessarily make him right, but he's entitled to it. If it were being printed as gospel, then there'd be a problem.

Intrada's tough enough to take it... hell, ANY soundtrack producer these days has to be...

Yes... it is his opinion. As you say, he's entitled to it. But it is an ill-informed, inconsistent and poorly written one.

Yes. But I don't know what the opinion means. It seems to be scathing, but how exactly is Intrada "shy"? And what does "owing to low economical reasons of accountant" mean? I believe Mr. Rucki (for whom I assume English is a second language) is suggesting that Intrada is being frugal, and if that is his point, I don't think it bears any scrutiny at all.
