[Grief] Nothing short of a total twitter war

Seems to be more Gen posting to Chris on Twitter and not a lot coming back in the other direction but I can see why Gen is pissed off. Calling it the Final Report makes it look like it's a TG album. Surely calling it Desertshore by X-TG would have been more in keeping with what it is.
After seeing one of the ICA sessions I was rather looking forward to the album with Gens vocals.

I see Gen and Chris are at loggerheads on Twitter regarding Desertshore, with Gen asking TG fans to boycott Desertshore. Chris's explanation is that it is no longer an official TG album but a collaboration between Chris, Cosey and Sleazy et al. I guess when Gen left the tour they decided to scrap all of his vocals and use guest artists instead.
Waiting for this release for the last few years I have ALWAYS been under the impression that it was the final TG record, it has always been advertised as such by C+C. I have to say I'm with Gen on this, if it's not the four of them it's NOT TG and should never have been advertised that is was. 
I  for one will not be buying a copy. The post 1981, post analogue TG sound, mainly Chris's all new digital gear sounds too sterile and clean to me.
It really is a sad end to the whole TG saga
