GA review – see WP:WIAGA for criteria

I have reviewed this article, and do not believe it meets the criteria. I also believe the edits necessary to achieve GA status are too numerous to warrant putting the nomination on hold.

  1. Is it reasonably well written?
    A. Prose quality:
    There are numerous grammatical errors, and slang is used occasionally in the article.
    B. MoS compliance:
    There is no lead section, and there is a trivia section, which is discouraged by the manual of style.
  2. Is it factually accurate and verifiable?
    A. References to sources:
    There are references to some sources, but I am not sure if there are enough. Also, there is a reference to a Wikipedia article, which does not count as a 3rd-party source.
    B. Citation of reliable sources where necessary:
    There are some citations in the article, but there are also unsourced statements in the article which should be cited. I will add {{fact}} templates to indicate which statements I believe should be cited.
    C. No original research:
    Because of the aforementioned lack of citations, I cannot be sure whether there is original research in this article.
  3. Is it broad in its coverage?
    A. Major aspects:
    B. Focused:
  4. Is it neutral?
    Fair representation without bias:
    The article seems to have a small bias toward its subject; it seems to glorify the artist in question.
  5. Is it stable?
    No edit wars, etc:
  6. Does it contain images to illustrate the topic?
    A. Images are copyright tagged, and non-free images have fair use rationales:
    B. Images are provided where possible and appropriate, with suitable captions:
    These criteria are null because there are no images in the article.
  7. Overall:
    Pass or Fail:
    Due to the above mentioned problems, I am failing this article for GA status. If these issues are resolved, please feel free to nominate the article again. Robert Skyhawk (Talk) 17:24, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
