i'm not sure how this counts as "hype machine". it's pretty much the one piece of third-party information that there is on this kid anywhere.
i made no claims, no arguments, no nothing. i merely posted the first bit of data (admittedly in the form of an opinion column) that this thread has seen.
find me something that says he's overrated or going to disappoint or anything else and i will just as happily post it on the zag board.
