I just read the fantastic entry on Midnight Oil... what do I do if I notice something that doesn't seem quite right? In this case, it could be a Britishism that my U.S. vernacular doesn't absorb:

"'Too Much Sunshine' is a thinly-veiled attack on apathy sat to a basic, loud guitar track and 'Been Away Too Long' is a passionate ode to homecoming. It was a final, and fitting triumph."

I think the "attack on apathy" should be "set to ..."? And I also wondered about the phrasing (from memory, about a biography) along the lines of 'due to be released/published in 2005.' Was it? If so, wouldn't it make sense to update this? Or, is there a protocol concerning not changing entries once they're written, so as to preserve the time period in which they were written?

Thanks. I wanted to ask more discretely but there's no functionality for private messages, eh? That's ok; I'm an advocate for public learning - even it if is occasionally embarrassing. :-o
