Re(5): Listener No 4350 - Revelation of John by Elfman IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on July 4, 2015 at 08:22:10 AM by Chris Lancaster
Whilst not so vehement in my dislike as some others, I'm afraid that I wasn't a big fan of this one - which surprised me, as I'm normally an Elfman fan (I'm tempted to shorten that to "Elf-fan", but am not sure it will catch on). For me the word search at the end was a tough one given the lack of signal as to what the solver was trying to find. This was a shame as I thought there were some nice clues.
It probably also didn't help that I've never really been a big fan of Dame Elton (as Smash Hits magazine used to call him back in my teenage years. Or perhaps it was the NME in my student years. Who knows). Perhaps if the countdown had been the one in Bowie's Space Oddity, I'd have been sat here saying how much I liked the puzzle! Replies:
