removed the following trope example; didn't list the movie it applies to, and is a trivia trope anyway

What kind of index should this be added to?

Moved the summary to a sub-page since it's so damn long. Hopefully some Wiki Magic will turn it into something besides a wikipedia copy.

Actually, I'm gonna do a summary of my own. Might as well have some new material.

Well, it's a decent start, but there are two problems: you need to use first-person less (the wiki is a source of objective information after all), and it needs to be formatted more cleanly. I'd use the same format as The Protomen does, since that article is also about a rock opera, and we should try and be consistent.

Good job so far though.

It hard to be objective when talking about the quialty of the song. I'll add in a disclaimer at the top. Thanks for the formatting tips though.

But see, the quality of the song shouldn't be part of a factual summary.

It's like, if I'm summarizing a book for somebody else, or if you're telling someone about that movie you just saw, you don't spend every other sentence saying "that part wasn't very good" or "this part was awesome." It discourages people to experience it for themselves, and even if they do, then Hype Backlash can result anyway.

So you really should do the album a favor and be objective. Even if you don't someone else will come along and straighten it up anyway, since this isn't a wacky theory I have, it's wiki policy.

Do feel free to put your personal feelings in the review section though.

This is correct. Right a review if you want to opinionate. This Wiki is not a place for you to stand on a soapbox.

Holy crap someone did an article on Quad! I was just going to suggest one on the forum.
