As you'd expect, the nonsense around the Maxim "review" of the new Black Crowes album didn't end with the statements issued at the time. After the Crowes issued an official response to Maxim's handiwork, editorial director James Kaminsky responded Tuesday with a statement apologizing for the oversight. "It is Maxim's editorial policy to assign star ratings only to those albums that have been heard in their entirety," Kaminsky said. "Unfortunately, that policy was not followed in the March 2008 issue of our magazine and we apologize to our readers."
There's an "eating crow" gag in here somewhere.
