I don't think it is. I have a friend who follows Snug on Facebook and I read his reviews; he's mostly doing it for the jokes and the ratings are usually for fun as well. I sort of understood that Snug self-identifies as an anarchist and does that to make fun of critics.

You talk about the list itself or about the ratings?

Both. The list is just the recollection of the reviews from his Facebook page.

So the list is inegible? It wouldn't be the first time a musician journalist have a facebook page and published a book about albums?

So these high ratings do not reflect his own taste, but make fun of hipster critics?
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

Yes, as I said, this is all just a parody.
