|Humour:||7.5||I like this. It may be because I spend a lot of time on VFD shovelling bandcruft, but I did enjoy reading this. A pleasant surprise.|
|Concept:||8||Good, yeah. I'm not sure how this concept would play on VFH, as it's quite Uncyc self-referential, but it certainly made for an enjoyable read. I particularly like the way you voice the article, with almost weary resignation that people will plough on regardless of the sagacity of your observations.|
|Prose and formatting:||8||A few typos, nothing serious. Well formatted and not a pain to read. Fine. Could do with perhaps a bit more, see suggestions below.|
|Images:||7||A couple, fairly well chosen and well used. Could probably do with one more, but pretty good as it is.|
|Miscellaneous:||7.6||Averaged by the power of predictability.|
|Final Score:||38.1||This is a good article, and I enjoyed reading it. I wish we could make it required reading for anyone thinking of creating such a page! A couple of suggestions below as usual, but you can be pleased with this!|

OK, a couple more defining characteristics of bandcruft you haven't mentioned yet:
- The long, unfunny discography list - replete with "hilarious" parodies of existing album titles and "hysterical" made-up album titles from future years
- The trivia list full of made-up crap they couldn't be bothered to crowbar into any of the other sections
I think you should at least make mention of these, as they are a staple of this kind of article.
Other than that though, good job! I don't often come across articles I have so few suggestions to make about (I'm an opinionated git like that).
