Lance Burton, and later, James Randi have both been incredibly influential in terms of my skeptical mindset and performance character. I just thought I'd throw that out there. I don't respect Criss as a performer.

I don't like Criss; however, what you posted was not stated by James Randi. The review was posted by Alison Smith. Knowing that fact changes a lot.

All of these Edited "Criss Angel Sucks," "Believe Sucked," "That Magician Dissed Criss for Believe," posts are annoying the [edited] out of me. Just let it be, Criss' Believe show sucked, shocking! :roll:

I think it's relevant as it is a new high profile magician former friend speaking out and Randi is quoted in the article.

That article isn't quoting Randi. Check out the actual review. It comes from Alison Smith. It's her review that is criticizing Criss Angel. It just so happens that the review is on James Randi's site. However, that means nothing.

Again, this article is miscuing the facts. The person who wrote the review, and is quoted, is Alison Smith. Not James Randi.

OK you can see how I would have assumed it was him as the quote is attributed to his site...

I can see where the mistake was made. I first read about this on iTricks though, and saw the article there. This particular site though is tricky about how they worded things. Either they didn't know the truth because they didn't research it, or they purposely misrepresented the facts.
